If you got your 1100T at 4.1ghz and not having temp issues is it worth the money? Even with full custom loop I doubt you would get much over 4.2. Id wait for the next gen of sealed loop if it was me, but if you got cash to burn and really want it, do er up biggrin.gif

I got a 7c improvement when I went from the H70 to the H100. So, I would expect around the same from the H60 to the H100, maybe a couple of degrees more (note I am using push/pull on the H100).

Really looking to buy this case and outfit it with some nice fans, but I just have a couple of questions:

- Will a CM megaflow (200mm x 30mm) fit in both the top and front fan spots? I understand I'd need to move the bottom HDD cage (which I was going to do anyway) to accommodate that fan, but what about the top? Will that extra 10mm cause any motherboard/heatsink clearance issues?

- Can I fit a Silver Arrow heatsink with four side panel fans? The case is 10 inches thick, so I'd assume so, but i'd rather be safe then sorry.

CM fans have different mounting patern than stock Corsair (pretty sure), but if you find a way to mount them it will fit in the top fan (i have a 4.5cm rad and a 25mm fan on the top so there's lots of room tongue.gif) best bet is to get two 120mm fans for the top and find a way to mount a CM fan on the front via zip ties or making your own mounting holes

Tons of room for silver arrow and side panel fans to, now go buy the case biggrin.gif

The Cooler Master Mega Flow 200mm shares the same mount points as the stock Corsair fan. I had a Mega Flow modded with white LED's in my 600t I had. You can see pics if you go back some pages.

Which is why when I started buying parts for my build I had to pick between red and orange led fans for my 600T as they not as blinding as the blue or green ones for some reason. At least to me they aren't. Then I saw fans with led's that were my favorite color, so I decided on getting purple led fans. It will be different as I have not seen to many build with purple led fans. I tell you if I could afford it I would pain the case purple lol. When I get the last of the parts I need for my build next month and get it put together I will post pics on here. biggrin.gif

Funny enough I was thinking how unsual puple might be. The only thing is that getting purple lighted components (fans, cathodes, led strips, specialized fan sizes etc) may not be such a simple task. Post a pic why don't you! (when you installed them of course)

Yes, the mounting holes is the same. Though there are a couple of things you need to know...

Yes you are correct about the fact that you will be able to fit a MegaFlow in front if you move the HDD cages. Depending on which revision you have of the case you can either directly attach the MegaFlow directly to the inside of the front of the chassis or if you have the older revision, you can mount it on the outside of the plastic bracket that secures the stock fan to the front of the chassis.

The top is more tricky as you WILL NOT be able to fit a MegaFlow 200 or any other 200mm fan that is 30mm thick. The reason for this is that the fan overlaps with a slot in the top side of the motherboard tray that is slighly more than 20mm thick so 300mm is a no go. See picture attached. You can also use 2X 120's instead?!?!?

Hi all! I just registered but I've been lurking here since I started putting this new build together, this thread especially. Anywho, my 600T SE just got delivered yesterday, just waiting on the vid card till I put it all together. One question I've never seen addressed, when swapping out the top 200mm for dual 120's, is it better to mount them right where the 200 was or in the "channel" just under the top grille? Thanks!

Corsair has provided you some black fan screws with heads that are so thin they can't possibly interfere with anything.

You remove the inside 200mm fan, mount the 120mm fans in the top fan compartment and put the screws in from the bottom, inside the case. The heads on the screws are so thin they should almost be flush. Now remount your 200mm fan.

I don't understand the last sentence "as there is not even 1mm thick left to work"?

1mm thick what? The interior 200mm fan should fit back in exactly the same way it was before you started. Since the 120mm fans are actually in the upper fan compartment and not "inside" the case, I fail to see how they are causing a problem remounting the 200mm fan.


Yes you're absolutely right. Like I said, I was being that slow lol.

So, I'm into some fan remplacement process, I'll need 2 for my H80, 2 for the top of the case and 1 for the front = 5 x 120mm fans. I'm considering Sythe GT AP-15s, does anyone have any other ideas please?

Also I would like to replace the two 200mm stock fans with something quieter. I've done some research and haven't found anyone seemingly enthusiast about one model or another, cited references are soem Cooler Master Megaflow and some Yate Loons... Does anyone know any quiet 200mm fan, I mean quitet enough for me to feel a significant difference with the stock Coorsaiir ones while puhsing at least the same amount of airflow?

Mounting them up top gives the interior a cleaner look IMO.
