Alright I made two other videos. The first shows and compares the noise differences between corsairs 200m and one from the haf 932 case.

The second video is a comparison in noise level after installing some silicone grommets.

Here are all three for comparison in one post.

Out of the case noise level:

Testing fan position, speed and against a CoolerMaster fan.

Corsair fan after putting on some silicone grommets instead of the hard rubber it comes with.

Not sure what I'll do after this...maybe leave it the way it is.

I've been thinking about some kind of shroud to place in front of the wire pass through area and today at work I had an idea. I'm not totally sold on this but it may grow on me not sure.

I took a 4" x 12" (heh, lucky guess too) piece of aluminum perf and broke it lengthwise at about 40 degrees, cut two pieces of 3/16 red plex to line the inside of the angle. a 12" red cold cathode is the light source. I still dont know if Im going to have the hard drive bay where it is shown but they do make a 16 cathode which would run the full height of the case if I end up moving the lower drive bay back to the front area.

Anyhow, the placement of the shroud would be just forward enough to leave access for the cables to reach the mobo and also the drive bays. Just some food for thought, I made it in about 10 minutes on a whim and it could certainly be improved upon. it's not nearly as bright and overwhelming as the pic makes it look but it was hard to capture accurately with the camera I have.

Anyhow just wondering what you guys thought, should I try to refine this idea or ditch it? (also, I wish I had a green theme going cause I rescued 1/4 sheet of the sweetest green plexiglass from the dumpster at work today, definitely going to use that on another build...)

Also, has there been any agreement on what is the best black paint to match the inside of the 600t?

I like it. I was wondering how you got the light to diffuse like that, but then I realize that you had some red plexi under it. Maybe if you do another one, shorter one, by the PSU to hide where the wires come out of the PSU. I think it would tie the case together, and add some light to the other end of the case.

Or figure out how to dim the light down a lot, and let it be an accent thing. Unless it is a lot dimmer in person like you said. +1 for creativity.

Pictures attached wink.gif

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

I have a similar setup with Demci Flex filters, though mine unlike yours, do NOT have the magnet frame/borders. Instead mine had the Demci Flex high-density mesh lasercut to the exact shape and size of the panels (top, front, psu & drive bays) to fit INTO them. I have taken Darkcyde's pic that has aluminium filters inserted purely for illustration purposes. Mine has the Demci Flex filter mesh only instead - I am sure you will get the idea.

Though I must admit the magnetic frame/border options will work well too.

(Cable management sucks, because I'm still waiting for a couple of parts - fans and adapters - before I polish the thing, but system runs smoothly)

Nice card!
Yeah I too am waiting on some cables. They should arrive today so hopefully I'll tidy up my build and take some great photos to post ^_^

Edit: Side note: Anyone with a WD Black HDD experience vibrations on their desk? That dam hard drive does on my rig.

my demciflex side mesh dust filter is finaly in my hands so here is some feedback - as i promised. filter itself is very good quality. filter mesh is so tiny that no dust will go inside for sure, but it still allows pretty good airflow (but not perfect). i have the one with magnetic frame, so its like a magnetic sticker or something like that. fits perfect around the side mesh and now it looks like original window, but black. to see 1x is more than to hear/read 1000x so see attached pics for better imagination. i'm happy that i order it from demciflex. i have no problem at all with my order.

I haven't tried one of those, but it looks pretty hefty to me. If you have room it might be worth a try for sure. A little on the pricy side at $60 though.

Personally, if you're not generating a lot of heat with dual GPUs, I think the 200mm fan would work fine. I can't see it being louder than 2 x 120mm (although in either case you can turn it down with the controller). If I wasn't running a rad on the top I would still be using the 200mm (well, maybe not that 200mm, but some 200mm fan for sure). If you're planning on generating a lot of heat though 2 120mm fans might be a good idea. If not, and you have the newer case with the 1000 RPM fan, I think sticking with it would be fine.

Not sure what I'll do after this...maybe leave it the way it is.

Listening to your latest videos I see that the hum I was hearing was from your microphone or system and not the fan. The only time I could hear the noise from your fan was when you had it in the mounted position and were moving it closer and further away from the fan grill. Even then it was hard to make out. It seems you're happy with the new insulators you added. Maybe Corsair needs to go with something softer that won't dry out so fast?

It actually looks pretty good. It would look better if it wasn't the only source of light in the case, but good job none the less.

Yeah my WD HDD is making a humm vibration which is another problem...

I just got my sleeved extensions today.
