Inside the case, on any mobo I've seen, you cannot mount a rad and fans unless you use crappy thin 120mm fans and even then it still won't fit with most mobos.

Put the top fans thats on the rad, on top of the grill of the 600T, with the rad mounted to the inside top of the case and the other 2 fans installed on rad, It will fit.
That won't work in a 600T. I have one of the few H100 push/pull 600T cases and I had to do a serious mod to achieve it. Looks like you just barely managed to squeeze those two sets of fans in the 650D. Nice mobo for that build. BTW, if you're using 20mm thick fans please link to them. I wouldn't expect 20mm fans to be very good, but you picture looks like they're standard 25mm thick fans.

Even with just one set of fans, the H100 still beats the H80 by a couple of degrees. According to Corsair, using push/pull on an H100 will only make a 1 or 2c difference anyway. If you have the 600T case, go with the H100. You won't be sorry. (note, the H80 uses push/pull because it has a thicker rad). With one set of good fans (like the stock fans) there are no issues with the H100 since it doesn't need push/pull.

As for a significant temp difference, there's no such thing between the hydro coolers. If you're looking for a 10c difference, you're not going to see it. When I switched from an H70 push/pull to an H100 push/pull, both mounted in the top of my case as exhaust, I got a 7c decrease in temps documented here:

Here is the H100 installed push/pull:

You guys should try reading the thread. I know it's long, but every question you have has already been answered. (I will scan through long threads just stopping long enough to view the pictures and read if I find something interesting).

Okay, so I'm going to include a pic of the airflow map I've made. I'm really quite a n00b at this so rip it apart if I've failed miserably. Suggestions and comments are welcome too =)

Also, I'd like to get away with using the clear side panel instead of the mesh. I know that'll hurt the airflow though..

It all depends on your personal preference. If you change the H100 to intake you will get higher case temps. I think the configuration in your picture is worth a try. However, if your video cards exhaust out the back of the case then your rear 120mm intake fan will draw that warm air back into the case. My H100 is set up as exhaust and my temps are great. However, I'm using push/pull and you are only using one set of fans on your H100. In your position, I might choose to use the H100 as intake so the fans would be pushing through the rad instead of pulling. I think, to make this decision, since all you have to do is turn the fans upside down, I would try both. Record your temps for both (including your video card temps and chipset temps) and then select the configuration that works best for you. Don't forget to post your findings here. We'd all be interested in seeing how it goes. Also, I would recommend using an air filiter on whatever you decide to use as intake.

Here is my airflow diagrams before changing from the H70 and after installing the H100:



In both cases I was happy with my temps. The H100 is getting a 7c average lower cpu temp than the H70.

Sweet assed build there bud.

Made some more changes. I look back at the first one i posted and I laugh, I am addicted to this build!!! gahhh, just installed the new Kingston SSD, just waiting for my Lampton Touch and my Demci filters then I think I can take a break for a while... Until I decided to try a water cooled build. haha... eek.

OH MY GOONIE GOO GOO'S!

I am so frustrated! Every time I start to make some progress in this build I hit a brick wall. And what makes me hit this wall is the same thing every damn time, SCREWS! First it was the screws with the fans, which I was taken care of when I picked up some screws, nuts and washers at Lowe's. I actually got the top two 120mm fans installed as well as the front 200mm and the 120mm on the HDD cage. Now I have no screws to screw into the HDD cage. Here is the kicker when I find a screw that is the right diameter but to long, when I take it to Lowe's they are lost because the screws that come with most PC hardware are metric and the people at Lowe's aren't smart enough to stock metric screws. So it ends up being a game of guess the screw which I get to play again in the morning since I need screws for the HDD cage.

I have to ask everyone here, were your first builds the same, and as frustrating as mine? Anyway thank you for letting me vent and for all of your help as it is really much appreciated.

I've been working on this build for 2 months now and have driven 45 minutes to MicroCenter nearly 20 times just for simple stuff, much of it was purchased on Amazon with their 2 day free shipping and 30 day no ask return policy... How could I ever stop? Every time I hit a wall I just happen to stumble on something new online that I've never seen at the store. I've ended up spending well over 2 grand on the tower alone.

HDD and DVD screws you need are M3x6mm(DVD) and UNC 6-32 6mm(HDD) As for other case screws, M3 and UNC 6-32 of varying lengths will work. Occasionally you might come across an M4 screw.

I just finished installing my fan controller and 4 side panel fans, I can't help but feel really satisfied about this set up. The 600T is the second case I've worked with but it's technically still my first computer build and working with this case is just fantastic

I'm also happy to report that the smart fan technology on the Rheosmart 6 works like a charm . On auto it runs my fans to the PWM settings on my motherboard and on manual I can set them from 0% to 100% just fine. The only downside are the extra wires from the fan controller to my fans, I was able to route them so they're not just out in the open but it's not as pretty as I'd like it to be. I should get an optical drive soon and also I'd like to put that Vantec HD tray in the top two 5.25" bays eventually

I can probably go on and on about the 600T but bottom line is I love this case and I can't wait to see what I can do with it in the future
