It comes with both right? the mesh and the clear one? And I also got 4 fans to put on the mesh one to improve airflow smile.gif

Corsair George stated about 15 posts back that the SE(white version) has always came with both. So you should be good.

Hi guys

I recently changed my CoolerMaster HAF 922 chassis to a Graphite 600T. I dont have any pics to post yet, but will be able to do so in the next day or so. Hope I am welcomed here as a new owner member.

One major issue I had was the fact that the 200mm fans included were 20mm profile instead of the more regular 200X30mm variants (like my CM MegaFlow 200 which I sadly cannot use). Since my colour scheme is RED I found myself in a sticky situation where I only found two manufacturers with 200mm LED RED 20mm profile fans: Xigmatek and Bitfenix (both not distrubuted locally here in South Africa) & too expensive to import for what its worth.

After closer inspection I noticed that given the right tools, one can easily change the LED's using a bit of soldering wire, heatshrinks, new RED high-intensity LEDs (obviously) and a soldering iron. One additional tool that did work wonders was a soldering helping hands set (see pic) to hold the wires while soldering. I will try to post pics on this too to help you guys out for this DIY task if you are willing to undertake it.

I do not know if you guys are familiar with DemciFlex filters: http://www.demcifilter.com/

Luckilly for me he is based in S.A. so I was able to get custom filters made for my system for all the removable panels and optical bay covers. Since the material used for the filter mesh is surgical grade it really filters out dust quite well. Also, these filters are laser-cut so they don't freigh on the edges or anything.

This is where me second issue comes in, even though I have this high-tech filters in place it seems that the chassis has a lot of nooks and crannies where ulfiltered dirty air comes in. I also noticed that the side panel does not seal around the corners of the metal frame of the chassis (not sure if you guys are following me here) - which leaves more room for dust to come in. Is it just me?

Its Feser non-conductive liquid.

However, dual bay and maybe some 1/2" ID 3/4" OD. Was thinking about adding a 200MM Rad and putting the graphics card in the loop.

Do it. For the added cost, its definitely worth it. My GTX 580 never got above 55 degrees while GPU folding.

Your post reminds me of my old DemciFlex filters from my previous case. tongue.gif I have 2 120mm filters so I took them out just now and managed to fit them on the front panel pretty nicely imo. Here's a few newer pics. smile.gif

By the way thanks for posting about the filters, if not I would have forgotten about my DemciFlex filters.. redface.gif + rep!

its very true unfortunately. The bottom corner areas of the side panel have a pretty sizeable gap. Use a bright lightsource on one side and take off the oppsite side panel, you can see just how big.

Nice rig, but I am curious about that D3 background. Are you in for the beta or something?? If so, contact me please.

That problem with all the "nooks and crannies" is easily solved. Just make sure you have a positive air pressure case. Meaning, have more air being pushed into your case, than you have fans removing it. That way all the small gaps pushes air out, instead of sucking air in.

And you can mount the Megaflow fans in the front, just need to drill some holes for mounting. Or some have used zip ties and such.

And all this talk about demcifilters are making me want to buy some. They should become an Artisan here at OCN. I bet their sales would triple...

EDIT: are the demcifilters really that much better than the stock front filter?? I would really like a new front filter and a top filter. They would be awesome

Look here for more info. wink.giftongue.gif

And yup positive pressure case with good filters on intake fans is the key to keep unwanted dust out.
