Hey guys I've been looking at this case for a few days now, and I'm really thinking about getting one. I just love the round edges on this case opposed to the normal straight edge look of most cases. There's one main concern for me right now, I'm using a hyper 212+ right now and I plan to sli a pair of gtx 460s, will I be able to mount at least two 120mm fans on the side panel and not be in the way of my CPU cooler? I'm asking because right now with my antec 900, I can't mount a side fan because the 212 is in the way. Ideally I'd like to have four 120mm fans but for now I'll settle with two since I'm just running a single gpu setup

You'll be able to get at least two. Either the bottom two or the right two - I forget. I think it's the bottom two. You could probably also fit two scythe slipstreams in the top two slots. The 600T is quite a bit wider than the 900 biggrin.gif

i think, if you put only bottom two side fans on the side mesh, it will not interfere anything around CPU. and in my opinion the case is big enough to use all four side fans with any CPU cooler. it's huuuge case smile.gif in all dimensions...

Thanks for the quick replies guys, +1 for both of you. I plan to order the clear white led xigmatek 120mm fans with the initial case purchase.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185059

So these fans are thinner than normal 120mms? Non led kinda make me sad but I guess for a 300$~ sli set up, functionality will have to trump aesthetics for this one

those scythe fans looks like 25mm thick (according to that description). i have 5 xigmatek crystal white led fans (4 on side mesh, 1 in drive bay). and they are also 25mm thick (like normal 120mm fans. corsair 120mm stock fan in 600t is 25mm thick aswell)

check pics in my post with xigmateks.

I actually saw those pics a few days ago and it's what I wanted my case to look like tongue.gif. I'm going to order two of those xigmateks with the case. Knowing that I'll be able to fit two fans on the side panel make me feel better. I guess I'll just have to see how much clearance I'll have with the 212 when everything is set up.

i'm also planning to replace top 200mm fan with two xigmateks. they are a LOT brighter than those 200mm stock ones and now it looks strange. and 2 top fans will provide better exhaust imho than that stock corsair 200mm (which is not so bad, but..).. and i'm also thinking about 200mm front fan replacement. something with white leds.. maybe there is some megaflow fan like that.

For now, the side fans are gonna have to cut it for me. This case plus two fans is already a splurge on my part...

How do you like the case though? I really regret buying the antec 900, the only thing going for it was that I got it for 60$ after Mir. From what I've seen the past few days, this case seems very great in performance and aesthetics. And vs the antec 900, it's better in both those aspects by a mile. I'm hoping I won't be regretting buying this one too

i don't have any experience with antec 900, but from internet reviews it looks very ugly to me smile.gif and it does not have so much features as 600t has. like super (realy outstanding) cable management, hdd cages are movable, complete tool-less, black interior, easily cleanable dust filters etc etc. i noticed only two negatives with 600t:

1) window is doing strange sounds when it is warming up or something. but with mesh + fans this is not even an issue
2) fan controller is not what i expected. from 0 to 50% there isn't noticable difference in fan speeds. it starts boosting fans from around 60-70%.

I saw your pics as well and they are nice. I myself am going with a total 7 120mm and 1 200mm Xigmatek fans in my case but all with purple LED's. So it would end up looking like Marcus22's case, his is all Xigmatek fans in orange except he uses 2 Scythe Splitstream 110.31 CFM on his Corsair H80. So his setup it and mine will be....

2 120mm Xigmatek fans up top
1 120mm Xigmatek fan with the Xigmatek 4 in 3 HDD Cage
1 200mm Xigmatek fan in the front
4 120mm Xigmatek fans on mesh side panel
2 Scythe Splitstream fans on the Corsair H80

All of these set to intake except for the fans on the H80 they will be set to exhaust. And my Xigmatek fans will be all lit with purple LED's. So it should make for an interesting look as well as keep everything cool.
