Darn you beat me too it, I was going to comment about turning the power supply around to get that extra four inches.

i'm using just Asus software for my mobo. Asus Probe or something like that for monitoring CPU/MB temps and fan speeds. Realtemp is also good for monitoring CPU. And MSI Afterburner is No.1 for overclocking and monitoring your graph. card.

Tomorrow I get my new 600T SE White from Tiger. I can't wait to have it all put together. I was almost going to pull the trigger on a 850 or 1000 PSU! Don't really need it! I was gonna order one because I can. Lol!

I'll just use my old reliable Antec 750! The Antec has been rock solid for me from day one. I'm looking to go modular anyways so I might just go big for the extra power. Really want to go X-fire or SLI in the future.

I honestly think wattage isn't the real case here, but it's the amperage that does matter. I'm pretty darn confident a 850 can SLI 580's.

1) You can obviously see that ugly power cable going to the top of the mobo, it's not long enough to go through the back to reach it. Any recommendations?
2) Aside from buying a modular PSU - what's the best way to hide all the additional power cables I didn't need/use, just put it to the back and zip tie?
3) From the top panel there is an actual USB cord in the case, I think it's for USB 3.0. But my mobo doesn't have the right connector for it...although there is a USB 3.0 header. Do I just leave this thing, or get some kind of adapter?
4) Last - I want to give this thing a cool Nocturne look, someone
recommended purple and blue lighting. I think I do eventually plan on getting a window for it, or mesh window. I also am thinking about doing some water cooling, not really cus I need it, but just cus it'll make it look cool with more color options. Right now the PSU itself has a built in LED fan with color options for red, white or blue. How do you guys think I should do the lighting/fans? blue LED fans all around with Purple LED kit, then get Purple Watercooling tubes? or just mix match? Not sure exactly how different color LEDs would end up looking.

Thx.


1. Like what sused said, flip your psu and see if you can plug it by bringing it behind the mobo.

2. yes you can zip tie them against the mobo tray. there's holes for you to do that so they can lay flat.

3. theres an adapter for it (HERE). so far i havent used it yet because i dont have anything usb 3 compatible.

4. light the case up with blue, have purple tubes, and try purple and blue sleeving? or maybe just purple sleeving? confused.gif haha i dont know.

goodluck with the build! thumb.gif

the ax850 should be more than enough...even with a decent overclock

@gspin2k1

Check out the picture I posted on page 404 of my rig and you can see (It's a pretty big picture) what eySON said about using tie down straps. biggrin.gif

Any chance you could take a few more pics of that side panel so I can see how you did it? primarily the notches so the side panel will lock into the case.

It's acrylic and is made by MNPCTech. Contact Bill Owen here.

So I contacted Corsair as I had a faulty fan controller, and they're sending me a whole new case. Wasn't expecting that at all.

That means that I will now have 2 White 600T SE's, one for my old AMD975/5870, and one for my new build. Love the Arc, but it's just a bit too loud for my liking. I think it would work perfectly if I didn't have the two TFII's in there.

Now, for those that have WC loops in their 600Ts, specifically with a 240mm on top, how do you have your fans oriented?

With two 120s as intake on the top, and the 200mm on the front as intake, the only exhaust will be the 120mm on the back. I don't think that'll work too well with TFII's dumping heat into the case. Of course, easy solution is to put some exhaust fans on the mesh side panel. However, I'd like to show off the goods. What have other folks in my type of situation done? Go with a custom acrylic side panel with 1 or 2 fan mounts?

Get whichever one you have room for. The H80 is only a couple of degrees higher than the H100 is, so whichever one you get should really depend on which one will fit in your case best.

The H80 is a double thick rad with 2 x 120mm fans but will fit in a single 120mm fan mount. The H100 requires two 120mm fan locations to mount, but is a single thick rad with one 120mm fan on each spot.

If they would both fit in your case, it's purely subjective IMO. I picked the H100...

The lighting really turned out great in your case. I love the loop too, it's very compact.

Anyone have a suggestion on a filter for the top? Was thinking about getting crafty with some of the wife's panty hose, kinky I know... I might spring for some Demciflex filters sooner than later, they are a little pricy imo.
What software do you guys recommend getting for monitoring temps and doing a little overclocking?

You could try pantyhose if you put it under the top mesh and stretch it well. It might change the appearance though. How about something like this?

I've wondered if this stuff would be fine enough to use as a filter:

Try Afterburner, CPUz, GPUz, Fanspeed, Core Temp, Realtemp, Prime95, Furmark, HDtune, AS SSD

This is really as easy as...PIE.

P = I * E (wattage = current * voltage).

You can't have one without the other.
