Man, I just had a look at that case. It's very...utilitarian. Sure, it has lots of room for everything (like a big refrigerator) but man, it just has no class. I could never own a case like that. It's like putting your computer in a bar fridge.

Maybe some black spray paint might fix it up a little or something.

Are your temps really so bad? You're using four rads and full water loops on your CPU and GPUs. I'm using air and one H100. I'm happy as a pig in hoo hoo.

What was it that attracted you to the 600T in the first place? What was it that made you do such a 180 in your preferred case style?

It's like owning a sports car and suddenly trading it in for a pickup truck.

Well these cases are on the opposite ends of the spectrum, no denying that. Out of all the water cooler cases, I think the case labs look the best. Am I saying they are as stylish as the 600T? Nah. While I do love the look of the 600T, I crave space. I have a second reservoir, a second pump, a mobo block, a ram block, and a third GPU/block to add. I am stumped where to add the pump and res. I have a few ideas but not sure if I really like any of them. While I know I have a few rads biggrin.gif, it's not so much for cooling as keeping the rig quiet. Any less and I am sure I would need to move to crank up the fans or pump.
The M8 while not gorgeous is a serious water cooling case, and seems like the easy, albeit pricey way out of this conundrum. It's either that or buy a external stand for my 480 rad, which buys me just enough space I think to finish this latest round. Will partially external water loop coming out of the 600t look any better then a M8? Don't get me wrong, I am not looking to dump the 600t, I have two of them and just bought those custom filters (which are sitting at the post office waiting for me to pick it up). But I am just not sure if I can keeping building in it, and scaling back is not an option rolleyes.gif

I'm with you...Love my 600t, but on Friday am going to look at an M8 w/pedestal for another build I want to do. I think they look smexy!

Well, I can't argue about that. If you have that much extra to add you're just going to need the space. I guess it's like having another kid, you have to move into a bigger house. I guess instead of a pickup truck it's more like a minivan.

As for your reses, have you thought about putting them on the right side where the wiring is or are they too thick to fit there?

A res won't fit on the backside of a 600t. That's one of the nice things about a case like the M8, it's a double width case. PSU (or dual PSU) can go on the backside with watercooling gear. The one I'm looking at has a pedestal so all the rads can go in that. Keeps the main pc area open for component expansion.

Don't get me wrong, I love my 600t, but I've been wanting to do an extreme wc build for a couple years now...

The 600T SE looks really good.

Thanks! If anyone would want to know, the widgets are Rainmeter, with the Omnimo 4.1 skin, emulating Windows 8 panels. They are exactly that, clean and useful!

As far as the power strip goes, normally you wouldn't see it because there's a chair in front of it. However, I could try and clean it up a bit though, I agree. ^^

alittle update. Added shrouds w/ red tint vinyl wrapped around them and both have red LEDS at the bottom, Gives them a subtle red glow.

There are a couple of fans that will mount up front with no problems, but I don't know if they are any quieter than the stock fan. If you really want to get rid of the front fan noise, cut the grille out. Apparently that quiets it right down.

Thanks.
In fact I find the 200mm top fan noisier than the front one. Think I'll pull the trigger on these Scythe GTs for my 120mm ones, everyone talks well about them. I happen to have a spare Corsair 120mm one, I will plug it in here as a test.
Just noticed I set my fans on the H80 radiator badly anyway . I have it in reverse. I'll mount them in push-pull, it should lower my CPU temps a little bit no?

On a side note, different story: I noticed my HDD led is blinking?
Connector is properly plugged in HDD LED header of my board. What does that mean? What HDD is it even considering anyway, since I have two?

Awesome looking system dude Nice white and red sticker

Sorry to insist, maybe you didn't notice me first time I asked: I have the same video card (awesome ) and I think that the Maximus IV layout allows a 2-way SLI of these cards with a sufficient space between them for the GPU's not to suffocate. However the one at the bottom would touch the PSU. Could you confirm or infirm my guesses please?

Thanx.

Looking at this pic, He has 2 matrix cards and a soundcard or (?) installed.

I have the asus maximus extreme-z mobo. So i guess 2 will fit fine. doesnt seem to be touching the psu.

I cant confirm it, because I dont have 2 matrix cards
