Thank you ..
The seam can be seen when very close to straight.
Elastic bands fit very tightly to each other.

Here is the breakdown of my upcoming system :

Noctua D14 in stock push/pull configuration (will replace the one 120mm fan with a noctua NF-P14-FLX)

4 X Noctua NF-P14-FLX on the side mesh panel

Replace stock 200mm fan with a Antec Big Boy (Will remove the 2 HDD cages since I'll be moving all my HDD and SSD in the 5.25: bays)

Replace stock rear 120mm fan with a Noctua NF-P14-FLX

Replace stock 200mm top fan with 2 X Noctua NF-P14-FLX

My question would be, which fans for intake and which for exhaust?

BTW, I have a Sparkle Calibre GTX480 OC, the one that comes with the Arctic cooling fans. That means the hot air from it will be inside the case.

Looking forward to your reply, thank you.
Very few take the time to read the whole thread, so

I think you have made great choices on fan selection (though I am not sure about the antec bigboy, I remember reading a so so article about them). If your going to use the mesh, I would stay with your stock configution and use those as intake. I would also keep the front 200mm fan as intake. As for the top fans and rear fan, I suggest experimenting a bit. I never used an air cooler in the 600T, but as I see it there are really three configs to chose from up top. Leave it traditional and have all three fans as exhaust. No need for dust filters, which is always a good thing. But to be safe I would also try making the top 120s as intake and leaving the back 120 as the lone exhaust. Positive pressure is supposed reduce but not eliminate dust build up, and I would think your monster CPU cooler would have all the fresh air it could handle. And just to be thorough I would try one last thing, making the rear 120 as intake while making sure the fans on the CPU cooler were flowing in the same direction, and leave the top 120s as intake. Maybe the CPU cooler would perform better with this direct pipeline to outside air, maybe not, I admit I am not sure what to expect with that last configuration.

When deciding which is best you would look at chipset temps, CPU temps, and GPU temps, and dust control. I would encourage you to try and report back your findings. Good luck.

All fans to intake except the rear and top fans. You might also want to consider a fan in your 5.25 bays.

edit: I put a fan into my 5.25 bays when I was air cooling with my megahalems. I droped the temps a couple degrees and certainly added a lot more air circulation into the case. I highly recommend this configuration if you are air cooling. Keep the rear fan as an exhaust, you'll need the direct flow through the air cooler.

With as much mesh is on this thing, it really isn't possible to have a true positive pressure case. The best one can hope for is to increase airflow through the case.

There is a company in South Africa that makes filters for the 600T that will ship anywhere. I don't remember the name but people in this thread will know the name.
I had actually purchased universal Demci flex filters for the 4 X 120mm fans on the side panel. I got 2 sets of this http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=15709. They are not specifically for 600T but it will suffice for now.

Which other area of the case will need filters? I thought that the front fan, PSU fan and the top fan have filters already? Anybody has any idea?
post #3267 of 18196
only intakes need a filter. Personally, I just blow my case out every couple of days...of course, I run with my side panel off most of the time...(I like to look at all the pretty lights...)

Really coming together. You don't see copper tubing in a 600T everyday either

I never thought of about it that way, I guess your saying there is too many leaks for the pressure to build up. You might be right too, but maybe it comes down how much CFM is being moved in versus how much leaks out. Maybe high CFM fans can achieve it?

No dust filters on the top 120s I am afraid. You have dust filters for the front 200mm and the PSU only, and the bay drive covers have filters built in. You might need filters for the top 120s and the rear 120, if you go that route.

exactly....of course, it could be turned into a positve pressure case by sealing up the mesh. There is a build on the corsair forums where a guy is doing just that with acrylic.

Here's the link to his build log:

It does allow the use of two quality 120mm fans, but am not sure if I would trade that for push/pull 200mm, at 50% the NZXTs are quiet and still push a ton or air.


Well it looks fantastic. I could not see the seam in your molding around the window.
It is definately the loudest device in my case. I oiled the bearings in the fans a few days ago and it seems to be much quieter. I am starting to wonder whether I get better temps because of it, I need to do some testing.
