I'm not too sure about the new fans in the newer versions of this case. However, the mounting holes on my 2 x 200mm stock Corsair fans did not go through the fan all the way, so you could only mount the fan one way.

For example, on the top fan I wanted to remove the exhaust oriented fan and mount it in the fan compartment still using exhaust. However, I couldn't do it because the mounting holes on the fan wouldn't allow it. The situation would occur again if you wanted to reverse either fan and leave them mounted where they were. Couldn't do it. You would need long bolts and some nuts because a regular fan screw won't reach.

However, you could use a different fan to pull it off, one with mounts that go all the way from the front to the rear of the fan.

Maybe you should look into it a little further before calling other people "n00bs". Looks to me like the shoe is on the other foot there bud.

Thank you
You could pull of maybe 2 fans per channel, but this controller is a little on the delicate side so if you do that try and get lower wattage fans. Personally I always recommend an after market controller, but many people seem happy with the stock controller. I know Corsair George mentioned the wattage the controller can handle further back in the thread, but I didn't bookmark the page...sorry.

But what I am wondering wont this create a lot of build up of dust overtime into the radiator, my PC will likely be on 24/7 so this is quite a worry for me.

Anyone had any issues with dust?

Also I will be fitting some NOCTUA silent fans onto the H100 rad as I've heard these can get quite loud, is it best to connect directly to the pump or to the case fan controllers?
Yes. Unless you mount the fans as pull/exhaust or mod your case for push/pull exhaust. The solution is to use a dust filter. There are several types that can screw right onto a fan, or you can order custom made filters.

Personally I don't see why so many people replace the great stock fans on the H100 and H80. The H100 stock fans have excellent static pressure and excellent airflow. I see no advantage to moving to another fan that doesn't perform significantly better than the stock fans.

If you are referring to these fans:

http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=p...ts_id=5&lng=en

They do not move as much air as the stock H100 fans, they don't even list static pressure indicating they are more of a case fan than a rad fan. At least their specs say they are quieter than the H100 fans, but you have to remember you can turn the H100 fans down to reduce noise. If you need better cooling you can crank them up and get way better performance than the Noctua fans would provide. Personally the only reason I would replace them is if I decided I wanted all PWM fans.

The H80 is great too, but Corsair still recommends mounting it as intake (which provides better CPU temps, but can increase your case temps). If you're thinking about mounting it as exhaust, you can do the same thing with the H100 buy just reversing the fans to pull.

mounted 2 of these on the side of my case to provide air to my video card. Awesome, fans - definitely recommend and I also have 2 more en route to mount to the top of my case so I can use them to replace the lousy 200 mm as exhaust fans.

can someone with either the plexi windowed or mesh windowed 600T be kinda enough to measure the window for me? need width and height of it from the inside of the side panel...also if anyone who may not have either mesh or plexi window in the side panel could measure the width of the opening from the lip...if you can help but have no idea what im talking about just shoot me a PM and ill explain

+rep for those who can help me out with some measurements

thanks everyone

I highly suggest replacing the stock H100 fans. They are EXTREMELY loud. I replaced them with gentle typhoon ap-15s and the temps are a tad better and MUCH quieter.

has anyone done anything to combat the excessively bright power button led?

i had to disconnect the power led lead on the motherboard cause the damn thing has become a night light

i was thinking of getting some kind of window tint or something and put it over the actual led behind the power button to cut the brightness



EDIT: wow totally posted in the wrong thread

You could always just get a black marker and colour it in. Pretty permanent though.
