I did however contact corsair and heard from them once and nothing more.

I have had the side panel off up until about a week ago and I obviously have the panel with the factory window. All this panel does is make snap, crack, and pop sounds for some reason. It does it when it heats up when my computer first starts up. Then does it when I shut it off, cooling down.

I really like corsair products and have bought them for years. But my experience with customer service and some parts on this case that are cheaply made (window) hurt their reputation with me.

Yea the side window panel clicking got very annoying. So I gave up and I only use the mesh now.

This doesn't sound right - can you re-email me so I can look into it? Usually the follow-up is done pretty well here - I'll make sure this is taken care of.

(quiet ones if possible)
People recommend it because it works. Of course there will be some exceptions. Its always best to make decisions on solid data and not on what some random dude said on the internet. Now air being sucked from the outside blowing through the radiator should be cooler then the heated air in the case. "But what about all that hot air being dumped by the PSU/GPU*WAAAAH*",...well it should still be cooler then the heated air confined in the small space of the 600T. How much cooler varies though. When I used a H70 I had my case by a window out in the open on a desk, and there was decent air circulation in the room. I tested with Prime95 and Kombustor running at the same time, and intake was significantly better then exhaust (approx 8 degree). Didn't hurt my GPU temps more then a degree or so this set up worked for me. Now I would imagine if you had your 600T in the corner or under a desk or both (shudder), with all that heated air being exhausted by the PSU and GPU collecting in that one area, you might have a different result. Or maybe you have a different fan set up, or your central air vent is placed just so, or whatever. Could be a million reasons why results will vary. Best to test and see what works for your set up.

I know exactly what you mean about the popping sound, I didn't think it's exclusive to using the window panel though. Might be that its worse with the window on, because without it you still get the popping sound. I would think you would only have to endure it once as its warmed up and then once again when it cooled after shutdown. I am sure you will get your bezel replaced, but can tell you from experience their response times can vary. Hang in there or follow up with George.

'Lo everyone. Quick question

I'm planning a build in the 600T-SE, and want to use a CM hyper 212+, will it fit? I've heard that some people have clearance issues with aftermarket coolers on this case, although from what I see this beast is positively cavernous so I don't see how that could be a problem.

Also, if it does fit: Could I arrange the fan to pull vertically so the exhaust would go out the top (case) fan? Can it be orientated this way? That's what have on my current setup in my Antec 300, and it seems to work exceptionally well. Almost as good as a pull/push.

This is why I get annoyed of the same dude saying "flip those to intake" every single time someone pots a picture with an H-series in an exhaust setup. If you can set it as an intake and still maintain good airflow and temps within the case, more power to you. I personally prefer to use mine as an exhaust and maintain a front to rear airflow. I have tried multiple setups and have seen maybe 1-2c difference at full load between different configurations.

lol, i think its kind of funny, he examines each pic posted to see which way the fans or blowing. I think he is saying it in good humour though, and he is promoting experimenting in a round about way.

I just have to say, using those NZXT 200m fans are WAY better than using the corsair stock case fans. I also have one on the side with my mesh panel now too.

Oh yeah that makes sense. I might look in buying one of them then when im going to replace the stock 200mm fan. Are they really much noisier than the stock ones?
