If I was you, with the cards you're running, I would consider Corsair George's post regarding video cards that exhaust into the case:

http://www.overclock.net/computer-cases/831636-official-corsair-graphite-club-202.html

Post #2020

Specifically this portion "For optimal cooling with the "Radial" style, side panel fans, and bottom to top can help. In some instances, turning the front fan into an exhaust and the top and side fans into intakes has dropped temps significantly in the labs.

With your cards I think I would consider using the top fans as intake (get a decent filter, or make one for the top of your case) and the front fan as exhaust. At least I'd give it a try and see how I liked it. I'm not sure though, with my case on the floor beside me. if I would like having a heat blower pointed at me.

If you're not interested in trying a reverse flow, I would stick with the standard flow but perhaps add another 120mm fan in the drive bays if you have room. This should provide more cool air pointed at you air cooler. Some of the guys here have drive bay coolers and should be able to provide you a link to one they have found works well. Another thing to consider is removing the top hard drive rack and adding a fan between the bottom rack and the 5 1/4" bays. This helps cooling the video cards.

Hope that helps.

I think I will try your suggestion and we'll see how it goes. How about using one of this http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9_1070&products_id=14304 under the GPU as exhaust?

Guys, Demci Flex actually makes custom filters for our case. Problem is, they're not on the market yet and you have to order straight to them in S.Africa,

By the way, thanks to CloudFire, Mergatroid, Darkcyde, lowbudgethooker longroadtrip and CesarNYC for the advise given here and via PM.

Just wondering if anyone has offered to share their .DXF file used to make a full acrylic side panel for the 600T? I run a Multicam 3000 CNC Router at work and I've got a scrap of 1" acrylic big enough for the window but not sure I'm up to the task of getting a perfect fit. Does anybody know someone who has made one of these who might be willing to share (or sell) the cut file?

I think a tiny little felt lining around the side panel window could alleviate some of those noises.

Thanks, I just sent an email.

As for the "popping" noises, I'll give that a try. I'm actually going to use adhesive vinyl around the indent of the window and see if that works. The stuff we have at work has a very slick surface and I can also use the vinyl printer to custom cut for a perfect fit. Also wondering if just a bit of lubrication on the threads of the screws might help. one of these should do the trick, at any rate I'm going to do the full acrylic mod in the future so it's no biggie either way.

Thanks for the heads up re: George.

I thought I would post my fan configuration to help others and maybe even get some feedback myself. I have replaced every stock fan in the case and I think it turned out great. Very quiet compared to my last build.

Give it a whurl but I think there is some confusion on what is a true radial style cooler. Ole' Georgie followed up his post with this one , so you can see there are more then two types of coolers, and yours seems to blow hot air everywhere and not pushed out on two sides.

Thanks for the pics, I imagine the side panel one will look very similair, hopefully I will see for myself in the near future.

Another great post, I would say this is the classical set up (moving the HDDs and using a 5.25 adapter w/fan is almost the default config now:D). Should work for 95% of the air cooled rigs out there.

Would you guys recommend using the default 200mm fan on top, or two 120mm fans?

2x 120mm, they have higher rpm, quieter and can push the hot air out of the case faster.
