Do you recommend connecting the GTs directly to the mobo or to the PSU? I only seem to get about 1760rpm out of them according to aida64 when connected to the mobo.

That's normal because they are rated for 1850 when there's nothing obstructing them, but push/pull through a rad is harder than just through more air.

Dust is a legitimate concern. Personally I don't think I'd use pantyhose, but there are various filters available for 120mm fans.

However, you might want to think about your video card as well. If it exhausts hot air out the back of your computer you may draw that air back into the rad again. I did tests of intake vs exhaust with an H70 and I only got a couple of c difference in CPU temp. Others have gotten similar results. Intake can also increase your chipset temps and your video card temp. You might want to test and record all your temps if you switch to see which works best for you.

The rad tubes on the hydro series don't slosh (at least none of the three I own slosh). Yellow Beard at Corsair did an H70 build in the 600T and he had his hoses on the top, so I don't think it really makes that much difference. I've tried it top, bottom and side on an H50 and an H70 with no difference at all. Feel free to experiment and let us know how it turns out.

Thank you for the reply! I was thinking about just picking up one of these:


I will try flipping the rad tonight, they can just be such a pain to install.

Thanks,

I must say, Corsair's customer service is above and beyond expected. One of my rubber grommets for the cable holes came ripped and within a week they sent me a pack of 8 as a replacement. I've always had great respect for the company's product quality but never knew they were so generous when it came to support. Thanks Corsair!

Those look like great filters. If you change the air orientation of your cooler just change the fan orientation. For me that was a lot easier than trying to flip the whole rad if you can get at the fan screws. If not loosen the rad and then flip the fans.

Check out post#6235 in this thread:
http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...-club-624.html

That and cleaning fans and the inside of the case is the main reason why I use exhaust. If you need every degree you can squeeze out of your CPU cooler, then intake is the way to go. If you can put up with a few degrees c higher on your CPU, hate dust like I do, wouldn't mind possibly a little cooler temps on your video cards and chipset then exhaust is fine.

There are also a few other considerations like where your video card exhausts (inside or outside), how many and how good your fans are. Experimentation is the best way to find out what's best for your circumstance. Even if everything is stock and the same as many other builds your desire for internal temps and CPU temps (and dust) may be different than other people so you may use different orientations than they do.

Had my 600t for about a year now and I still love it. I got a bunch of Yate Loons in last week and while testing different fan setups I remembered how much I love working in this case.

My girlfriend got home from work as I am in the living room taking pictures of my PC in my underwear. She just looked at me and shook her head in disappointment.

I like where you placed your "powered by corsair" sticker, I was wondering if anyone used them. I stuck mine outside on the top left between the console and the door panel lol.

+1! I had a flaky connector on a fan cable (it would work if I applied pressure, but lost connection if I let go), and Corsair sent me a whole new fan after some minimum diagnostics! It took a couple days to get a response from their Tech Support department, but otherwise I'm very pleased with the customer service and warranty support. Thanks Corsair!

Those are 140mm, not sure if thats what you wanted but just thought Id say something as 600ts dont have 140mm fans anywhere on em

I'm getting a new desk, Asus P67 WS and a 2600k next week
Ill try and get some actual pictures once that's all set up
