A couple more pictures, still waiting on my gtx570 but made a few changes from my first post. Switched the GTs around as intake on the H60, added a screen, and moved my hard drives up to the 5.25" bays. Changes dropped my idle temps by nearly 7 degrees! Tell me what you guys think, suggestions always welcome.

Well after four months of use with distilled/KillCoil, the Tygon tubing turned cloudy...

....and deposited a small amount of plastic gunk in the CPU block.


I decided to go with Primochill black tubing and also add an elbow and a drain plug to the discharge side of the pump to clean up the routing a bit.

The upgrade looks good. How did you do the block clean up on the block, lemon juice? Would you say primco chill is better then Tygon in terms of bending?

Hey guys I thought I would say hi since I just bought a 600T White I do have to say I am a bit disappointed of the build quality of the Corsiar 600T. I've never seen it in person before, but my first impressions were that it is fragile and not as sturdy as other cases out there. What do you think?

I used vinegar and a plastic bristled brush to clean the CPU block. As far as the tubing goes, the Primochill is a bit stiffer than the Tygon, but seems to work better with compression fittings. The connection feels tighter now.

What about it felt un-sturdy?

I did think that the 600T wasn't very rigid or solid compared with my last case, a CM ATC-201. That thing was built like a bank vault so meh. The light gauge steel and plastic doesn't feel very solid IMO but there is nothing wrong with it.

*Edit* Anybody here fitted a CM Megaflow? I've stuck one in mine and whilst its very quiet I reckon it doesn't move much air. The specs say it moves more air then the Corsair but it doesn't feel like it.

I think it's pretty much the best case I've ever used personally. I don't have any problems with the plastic at all. I don't find the amount of plastic unusual in any way unless you're used to using pure aluminum cases or something. Considering you can pick the case up by the top plastic I wouldn't call it "fragile". I have not been using aluminum cases at all, and all the other cases I've had have had their share of plastic except my last one which was all metal except a front flat piece of acrylic (but it's a pretty small case). Of course, all the reviews mention the plastic pieces so you should have known what to expect.
