As a new 600t owner (as of yesterday) I'm very glad to have found this forum, it's gonna take quite a while to digest all of these possibilities.

I've been working back from the most recent posts but when I read yours I felt I should chime in here as I can identify with both of your points.

My case was packaged with the front fan cover just laying alongside the motherboard door (I'm assuming this is not normal???) Anyhow, I counted more than 30 scuffs/scratches from the fan cover rubbing during shipping. Thank god the mesh was to the door and not the backside... Only a few of the marks are into the paint, the rest are just black scuffs/scratches which I have been unable to rub out. I know what you mean, I hate to ***** but the least I can do is give some feedback.

I'm willing to let it slide but really, it kinda sucks to make such compromises.

Heh, I was wondering what that noise was. After unpacking the case I laid the window panel on my couch and proceeded to drool over the case itself (I LOVE this case by the way). I kept hearing a loud "crack" sound from my living room (like a stick being snapped) and hell I must have went in there 5 or 6 times trying to figure out what the hell it was, never even occurred to me that it was the panel. This went on for at least 20 minutes, holy crap that was LOUD! I kept thinking something had fallen over. Now it all makes sense, temps outside were above 100 when it got delivered so when the case got unboxed and exposed to cool air it contracted. I would assume what we were/are hearing is the side panel sheet metal expanding /contracting against the window screws. Strange thing is, I heard it pop a few times during the day today (still laying on my couch) and thought "there's that damn sound again what the hell is it?"

This would be a deal breaker for me but I run a CNC router every day and am planning a full acrylic side panel (or 2 if my wiring turns out as planned) so this may not be an issue. Still, I'd like to think that we don't need to start using spreadsheets to categorize case creaking noise levels ;P

I love this case. Nevertheless, I really expected a higher level of quality from Corsair.

It's not a blanket, I just had it covering the desk when I was building it so it wouldn't scratch the desk

Also I had it push but now i changed it to pull and the temps are about the same and my GPU is cooler.

Not saying there is any type of etiquette but most would lump all four into one longer post. I guess some are afraid you are going to use up all the posts and they won't get a chance to add theirs .

There has been a quite a few posts complaining about scuffs and scratches in the last month or so. Here and in the Corsair forums. While I don't think Corsair will ever come out and say there is a problem, I am confident they will make some sort of change to the packaging (back to the stronger tape?).

The "popping" will probably get ironed out with the 650T......

It's not that bad. It's just that you could've compressed all of them into one post! It just takes less space!

I couldn't put all 8 in either. I put all 4 in the fan closest to the front of the case and only the first 2 on the other fan.

Had my 600T SE for about 2 months now and loving it, except for the dam creaking of the perspex panel! but cthining about changing that to a full clear panel or getting a solid panel and then doing some graphics on it!

I had the same problem with the side panel creaking, but I noticed corsair screws it down really tight so just loosen up the screws like a quarter of the turn and it should stop

Thanks dude!
Will give that a bash. I was also thinking of putting some thin foam in the inside betweek tah panel, the black frame and the perspex.

Also i need help on how to mount a gfx fan - my 6990 is runing rather warm.

Oh and one last thing, do the 200mm NZXT fans fit in the front?
