I have the same problem with the 600t I just got too, NoDoz. There were black marks all underneath the front panel. Everything else made it out fine. Maybe CorsairGeorge can chime in or we can PM him.

Here is the fan install I did. I used the openings for the case panel locks to mount my fan controllers. I am pretty pleased with the outcome. I wish I could route the wires cleaner but honestly, for now, I am ok with how it's setup. Right now I need function over form.





I also used my extra stock 200mm and ziptied it to the back side of the 200mm Phobya radiator for a push, pull config. The new fans and the extra fans resulted in a 5-8 degree drop in temps. I am more than happy with that. My temps rarely break 65 degrees now while I am folding or running Prime95.

Got my 600T-M case today. With talk of scratching I was curious to see what condition it would arrive in. When I opened the box, it didn't look good. I could see the front grill/fan filter was off, free to bounce around and scrape against everything. When I removed the papery bag and styrofoam end caps, I looked the case over for any damage. I didn't see any scratches. There still is a plastic film protecting most of the bezel, so maybe it saved the finish. I did notice they switched to a much more flimsy low tack masking tape to secure the fan/grill filter. If I remember correctly they used a stronger (though some people complained about residue) tape in my first generation 600T. This new tape looks like if the box gets hot and is boucned around the tape would fall right off.

Just to compare my old with new 600T case, it did come with the newer fans, the front fan is screwed directly into the case instead of a bracket/clip on, and of course it came with the mesh panel (but no window panel, no solid door either). Got a bunch of parts today too but sadly still no 6970 (anybody seen a reference one in stock at a reasonable price)? I don't feel like draining the loop multiple times so I am going to hold off on some of the upgrades till then...

Now that you mention it, mine was loose in the box as well could of been the cause.

I had a good look at my 600TM and it was clean (Fortunately).

This new tape looks like if the box gets hot and is boucned around the tape would fall right off.
So with the case sitting out in the sunlight I was able to take a better look and there was indeed damage to the new case. It appears to be a direct result of the front grill coming loose. The main damage was to the front grill itself. It is now slightly bent, so it no longer lies flush (even when properly "clicked" into place).
This is what right side looks like, as you can see it aligns to the bezel no problem



And here is what the left side looks like. Notice both the top and bottom of the grill are "clicked" in, but the filter bulges out like a gut.



Looks like the metal part of the grill was dented and it pulled away from the plastic frame that holds the mesh.

There were some very, very minor scratches, not easy to spot let alone photograph, but I think you can make it out if you look closely in the picture below.


Neither one of these defects are worth RMAing, to me. I would much rather they correct the issue by securing the grills with stronger tape. I know the community dinged Corsair for using too strong of a tape last time, but this newer tape causes damage to the case right out of the box. Of course I may be wrong and the tape is not the root cause, but it does seem related at the very least.
