unfortunately I didn't take pictures of the process but I can tell you the rad is held really well. The two fans furthest from the front panel are the ones that are really holding it down, and I think those 8 screws are more than enough. I had to cut away some plastic and metal for the third fan, so its not holding the rad up because there nothing in between to bolt through. That's the only way I could get the third fan to line up flush with the other fans and the rad mounting holes.

I mounted my H100 exactly the same way (although I only needed two fan positions) so I could use push/pull on the rad. The H100 is really well mounted with only 4 screws mounting through one fan, so I bet 8 screws on your rad is really solid.

I thought about leaving the corners of the cutout for fan screws but it would have been a problem because the metal doesn't fit flush with the fan mounts. I guess a bracket would have been the answer but it's really not needed.

Still, nice job on that rad.

Doesn't the 600T look awesome with three fans on top?

Just ordered lots of new goodies for my 600t...finally getting that dual 120 fan mod done on the front of the case, 8 Noiseblocker Multiframes, AX850 psu, Vengeance black kit (so I'll have 2 colors on my RAM), 2 sheets of acrylic, 10 blue and white leds w/ controller, 2 sheets of mesh...I see a build log in the near future!

Hmm, that's quite the parts list you got there, sounds pretty spectacular. I wonder what the mesh is for?

The three fan mod up top is starting to pick up steam. I want to do the same but I have a problem. I no longer use a rad up top, just AP15s to extract the heat from the rads. If I were to cut the hole, I am not sure of the fan mount. I can't just cut it all out since there is no rad below, and I know a portion up top is raised so a simple hole might not work either.
On the other hand I don't need the hole:). My temps are good, this would be purely for bonus points. I actually have a very quiet set up now. I can't say it's silent, because to me silence would mean you can't tell if the computer is on. You can hear the fans, but just barely, there has to be total silence around you to catch it. If anything else is making noise like the television or having conversation, you can't hear it. I have played Deus ex for hours with Eyefinity, and even at a near silent fan level the GPU cards barley hit 50 Degrees. For stress testing I would need to turn the fans up, but that's the only time........ and this is before the second pump sitting on my desk is installed (also PWM controlled so hopefully no noise penalty with enhanced flow rate.).

The mesh is for enclosing the psu and the back ports (inside the case.) Acrylic is for a mod that I am doing kinda similar to Pascal1973's lit corsair logo. With the mesh panel, there will be a total of 12 NB Multiframe fans. Front 200mm fan bay is being replaced with aluminum that is templated for 2 - 120mm fans. It is also removeable so different templates can be made to swap out to different sizes of fans. Oh yeah, and demciflex filters all around!

She's been a good case for the past few months, but it's time to dress her up!

I am getting close to having all the parts I need to put my build together but I have a question.

I want to make sure everything post outside the case by running a bench test but I have no idea how to go about that. The reason I don't know how to go about it, is because I am going with a Corsair H80 cpu cooler. If I attached that to the cpu for the bench test, I would have to leave it attached making it a pain in the butt to install the mobo into the case afterwards. Do yall have any suggestions to make it easier or an alternative to using the H80 during testing?

Use the stock intel/amd cooler to test with or just pick up some TIM for when you remove the H80 to install the mobo into the case. My personal favorites for TIM are shin etsu and prolimatech. The H80 uses a dow corning TIM but the h50 and 70 used shin etsu. It's really quite good stuff.

@Liquidpain...Very nice! Looks pretty clean!

Moving complete....two quick picture so I can be officially added to the club
IMG_4710.jpg

I don't know if it's the light or what, but the door looks bulged when it isn't in this pic

Positive: Cable management options, so easy. HDD Cages can be moved around.

Negative: Noise. Louder than my Antec 900 even. Primarily caused by front intake fan buzzing due to the intake grill (I verified it by removing the fan, turning it on and progressively moving it farther and closer in to the grill, the buzzing gets louder the closer the fan is) I thought about cutting it, but opted to place a stack of rubber washer on each fan screw instead. It helps. My other option was to use a Cooler Master Megaflow that I had laying around, however that require moving the HDD Cage, and the Secondary position for the HDD Cage next to the PSU allows only two hdd to be used (The bottom hdd spot is blocked). For a $150 case, I expect some more thoughts to be put in when it comes to acoustics, especially one that is easily fixed. Fan Controller nearly worthless, but I knew that going in.

other thoughts: changed my boot drive from a WD 640 GB AAKS to Crucial C300 64GB, the boot time is amazing. Other changes, GTX 280->GTX 560 Ti, 4GB RAM to 8GB RAM. Not updating my main system until Ivy Bridge or later.

My CPU temps are worse by a few degrees, but GPU temps are lower than before. Thinking about adding a 120mm fan in the 5.25 bays or changing the top 200mm to intake
