I decided to sacrifice some silence in the name of cooler temps so I picked up some new fans.

I took the side panel to work and machined another 140mm hole next to the existing one and fitted two Scythe SM1425SL12H's in place of the one Noctua NF-P14 FLX


I swapped the rear NF-P12 with a Turbine Master Mach 1.8.


The other NF-P12 in the front 5.25" bays has been replaced with a Scythe SY1225SL12SH


...and for the finale, two Delta AFC1212D-PWM's pulling through the radiator.


Surprisingly it's not that much louder then my previous setup, but the temps are much lower.

I like the look of that Vantec HDD cooler. It takes half the space of the xigmatech one I use and still holds three drives. Nice find. How do you like it? Any issues?

Wow, deltas. I have always wondered how they would perform strapped to a radiator...........did you have to get a permit to install two of them in one case?

At 100%, these things will wake the dead. Thank goodness for PWM and ASUS fan Xpert. Dropped 5c off my idle temps.

So I was able to get my 600t SE from Microcenter open box for 100 dollars after a 20 percent off coupon I found on this forum Funny thing was, the thing was brand new! The cashier told me she handled the return on this unit and the owner never used it! Awesome! I actually returned my 650d for this case, but to be honest the look is really growing on me.


Please excuse the mess of wires inside, its my SilverStone Strider Plus ST-1000W that I will be selling very shortly and getting the AX850 instead. Quick question, does anyone know if the NZXT LED strip in white, matches the color of the LEDs that come with the stock fans?


Anyways, add me to the club! I converted from the Obsidian club! haha

No problems whatsoever, it clicked right into the bay. I actually replaced the fan with a Scythe Kama Flow II and it has been running flawlessly. Construction is very solid and the filter in front opens up like a mail box for easy filter cleaning.

I really want to buy one just to see what it's like in real life. I would actually like to see someone go nuts and swap all case fans with deltas. Maybe it's not so nuts if you go PWM

Ok, you can add me too now also!

At long last, I got my replacement 600T white from Corsair after my first one had some serious quality issues. It was in much better shape all around, which I was very happy about. After spending a couple hours ripping the guts out of "Black Ice" into the new case, here's my "old" setup in its new home until my new system is built.

I"ve already got some ideas of what I wanna do to the case and lighting for my next build and case project, including painting the case so stay tuned!

Man, I forgot how nice it is to have all that space that a mid to large tower gives you vs a small/mini case and damn, the wiring couldn't have been any easier with this case! My mATX looks so small now in this huge case vs my mini P180! I just hope the interior paint holds up to use over time.

Anyone else notice the front fan makes alot of noise for the small amount of airflow it produces? Its pretty darn annoying and or im spoiled from the low noise output after years of my Antec mini P-180.

Oh Corsair George, any suggestions for touch up paint? I found some light scratchs on my replacement cases inner panel and it makes me sad looking at them through window
