The clear panel is probably the best looking upgrade you can get for this case. I really wanted to figure a way to include it into my rig as well, but too much stuff going inside would mean it would be a waste. I am going to have to live with my "Sleeper" status. Here is a pic of the 480, I am still working on wiring and installing temp probes; as well as waiting on another GPU. When I have it all done I will do a real photo spread with all the additions since I have a few now biggrin.gif.

Nothing out of the ordinary on the outside

Wow, absolute sleeper status going on for real. To take off your side panel and see those radiators there is amazing. Very creative doing so! biggrin.gif

thanks for tracking that down, plus rep.

To tell the truth I am not sure anymore. I would normally just buy it and worry about fitment later, but I noticed my "spare parts" pile has been getting pretty big, need to plan a little better. I still like the idea of one or even two long rads in the loop, turning the loop into a "bomb" from Die Hard 3. All I would need is a digital read out that keeps track of coolant temperature strapped to one of the reservoirs, a few cables sleeved in blue and red and every time I opened the side panel I would wonder if I should power down or disarm it, laugher.gif. Not sure if a "bomb" theme has been done before, or if its in poor taste, but I like the idea. The truth is I don't think there is enough space, and if there is I am going to have to plan it down to the mm.

thanks man, someone put that same rad up front where I have my 200mm rad, but it looks like it needed a bit of modification to make it happen, he took some very nice pics of the process here .
I on the other hand have done zero mods besides drilling holes to mount my pump and my 200 fan/rad, modless modding......

Wow, quite a lot of awesome water loops were seeing. Was there a sale or something?

I finally got my H100 installed. Man, what a lot of work. First, I tried it with fans on the inside and it fit. I was all amazed and everything until I tried to get the block installed. Lol, the rad and fans cleared the board components fine, but the pump/block is just too big and would not fit unless I left out a fan.
I was willing to do that, but I really wanted push pull. With the 600T and the H100 you only have two choices (without modding). Since the fans have to go on top, you can either push intake (dust problems) or pull exhaust (not as good as push). Wow, another inch in height on this case would have solved this problem, but then it wouldn't exactly be a mid tower I suppose.

Anyway, I decided to mod. I cut the front portion of the top of the case and the plastic cover out just enough for the size of a 120mm fan. I moved the H100 one fan length toward the front so it would clear the block/pump. Since I have a 1/2 depth fan controller in my top drive bays the assembly fit without any problems. The cuts turned out good. The worst thing of the experience was the feel of the block mount. It didn't feel right, like it wasn't making contact. Using a flashlight I was able to shine light between the block and the CPU. Not good. Turns out there was a row of three capacitors the edge of the block was hitting. Forced me to turn the block 90 degrees to avoid the capacitors, but once again I end up with my Corsair logo sideways.frown.gif

Here was the test fit after cutting the case:

I think I may have killed a channel on my fan controller. The channel controlling the two "flow" fans is currently running at 100% and will not adjust. I'm hoping I just connected something wrong, but if I did damage it I think I'll just replace the MOSFET, perhaps with one a little more capable.

I will get some temps to compare with the H70 I was using tomorrow. So far there doesn't seem to be any difference but I haven't tortured it yet so we'll see tomorrow.

Great work man. I always thought another 120mm was meant to be up there, glad to see you pull it off. Curious to see what your temps are going to look like now, more exhaust and a bigger rad on the CPU should mean good things smile.gif.

Added a smaller rad and gpu to my loop. Looks a little messy but I'll tidy it up some other time...

That's messy? I think it looks great! Nice clean small loops. Fit very well. Good job.

Can you tell us how you decided which way to put your fans? I expect the fan for the rear rad is on the exterior? I love those black hoses with the thinner diameter. They have a nice clean look. Reminds me of CeserNYC's build.

Assuming one of the Corsair fans on top is pulling... and it's a left over from your H70?

I've got 3 Akasa Apaches in a pull config. I'd have liked to have them inside in a push config but there is no room.

Fans configuration in the 600T for WC is a lot of fun. It's a fact that intake on a rad will net better temps at the water block, but you still have to get rid of all that hot air being dumped inside the case. We have different rad placement but based on past set up I would make one of your rads intake. Not sure how big of a difference you will see, but it was a significant change in my rig.

For Mergatroid's new set up I would make the h100 fans intake and the last 120 up top as well as the rear 120 as exhaust. The GPU may be impacted by this configuration, when you test it you will find out for sure.
