I am in need of some fellow member input regarding fan directions and case pressures.

I have attached an illustration of my current setup VS 2 alternative options I am considdering. Please look at it and provide some advise.

Thanks

Positive pressure is anytime you have more air being pushed into the case than there is being pushed out of the case. So either of those would be positive pressure. I run a positive pressure setup on my 600T but its for my watercooling. It seems to work wonderfully.

I am already aware of the concept of how positive pressure is achieved, just as you have explained also. I am just not sure if option 1 is really positive pressure when you look at it - if it is, its a bloody close border-line situation for Option 1:

IN: 2X 200mm
OUT: 1X 120mm + 2X GFX cards (not sure how much CFM airflow they generate though?) + the PSU (well sort of but insignificant as the air comes in from the outside then out at the back almost directly through the PSU)

Option 2 on the other hand replaces on 200mm at the top coming in with 2X 120mm which should be more air IN than 1X 200mm. This should be a more confirmed positive pressure in the chassis but I am unsure if its too much positive pressure?

Also, does positive pressure not negatively affect overall cooling performance like CPU, GFX cards and more importantly overall inside case temps?

Mine is set up like option 2, but I have an H100 radiator in the top. I also have a 120mm intake fan in my 5.25 drive bays. Works well for me, but I'm only running 1 gpu right now.

It would help to know which version of the 600T you have as well as what your current temps look like. If its a fairly recent 600T, and the 200mm fan up front bolts directly to the case instead of being held up by a bracket, you have the newest version. That means you will have the newer, stronger (louder) fans.

I would stick with the stock configuration unless one of your temps was out of line. You seem to have a very straight forward set up, with the exception having two GPUs. With a SLI or CFX set up, the mesh side panel is usually recommended. But some don't want it or prefer the clear window, so to them I say enjoy the heat smile.gif.

I didn't know there was a newer revision of the 600T - dammit! Would have liked the directly attached fan option instead. I have the graphite grey one but also purchased the mesh & window combo panel extra. I get what you are saying about the mesh being the better option for multi-gpu setups but it does not look as good as a clear window and one would HAVE TO filter that air coming in as crazy as a tornado

I changed my top 2X 120mm fans to blow inward like option 2 now. Will see how the temps and dust behaves (thank goodness for DemciFlex filters)

speaking of Demciflex, put my order in yesterday and got my tracking info early this morning. Not bad.

well you are off to a great start. Tri SLI and copper tubing, pretty hardcore.

Just got my 600t in!
The back 3 expansion slot covers are bent and so was the frame, a little bit frown.gif

Just emailed george, I don't want to RMA it so hopefully I can just get some covers that arent bent!
