Think I may go ahead and move my rig to the 600t SE. Now to all of you H100 users, what do you recommend for fan configuration and what drawbacks might there be? And where would the best place to buy sleeved cables be?

Seen a few people with these:

But they're 30mm thick (Corsair fans are 25mm), so you'd have to move the drive cage back toward the PSU or do the drive cage mod, and you may have to be a little inventive on mounting it if the screw holes don't line up.

These look OK and should fit without moving drives or modding:

This fan is my fav:

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...ab=true&Page=3

But again it's 30mm thick, and it has no LEDs. However, it has spots to mount LEDs, and even little troughs in the spokes to run the LED wires. Lots of people here are using this fan because of its air flow (166.2 CFM). It can hold 8 LEDs. Be the first to wire this fan for lighting. You know you want to.

I wanted a fan controller which could handle 4 120mm fans on one channel, so I could regulate all the fans on the side panel at once. Ended up getting a NZXT Sentry Mesh, because of the understated, stealthy look and 30W per channel capabilities. End result!





Case fan controller can now go into retirement.

*edit: Yes, dust on the bottom of the case has been cleaned. ^^

Has anyone actually had a good look at the 600T's integrated fan controller?

When I say "good look" I mean what reostat it is (type, size, spec etc). Maybe even pics?

I know this will void the warranty but if one had to find a suitable replacement to fit it in place of the awful stock one perhaps?

i replaced stock one with my custom one. corsair used 10kOhm potentiometer. but that's not a problem. problematic are weak transistors that are used for each channel (they can barely handle more than one fan). i will post pics and schemes of both stock & my custom fan controller. now i have 8 fans connected to my new fan controller (attached to orginal case controller knob). i paid around 3€ for it and still have many components, resistors, transistors left

EDIT: and i still have original fan controller untouched in case i want to RMA it in the future. i just unscrewed old one and screwed new one in.

I think this is the fan Mergatroid meant to link to with his last link.

This is the fan that was recommended to me and the one I fitted a few days ago and posted images of a page or two ago.

There are some downsides to this fan that make other fans preferable if you only need slightly better cooling than the pre 600TM version of the case with the crappier OEM fan and fan controller. ie, nearly any 200mm fan is preferable to the anemic 200mm fitted to the pre 600TM version of the case.

In other words if you are only running a single card that exhausts out the back then tbh this 166cfm NZXT '200mm' might be overkill and its not worth making the necessary changes inside your case to accomodate it.

The apparent downsides of the fan are that at 30mm deep it wont fit the fan brackets like the OEM fan never mind the fact that its 192mm and not 200mm and the mounting holes wouldn't line up anyway. Thus one 'seemingly' has to screw it directly to the front of the case using some of the mesh holes in the case and possible drilling 2 new holes too. However I initially mounted mine a little higher so that the top screw holes of the fan roughly lined up with the holes that the corsair black fan bracket clipped into. I was able to use the screws with washers to catch the edge of the opening to hold the fan in place up top. This is where the other apparent downside of this fan came to the fore. Mounted right up behind the mesh, this fan on full speed was very loud with wind noise and a whine. Not surprising given that its moving a ton of air. If this is your only option for mounting then the only solution would seem to be to turn the fan speed down but then its no better than other fans that fit without hassle.

However!!

If like me you are running internally venting graphics cards like the Twin Frozrs et al and/or are running two in SLI or intend to in the future, then this fan is a revelation and worth every penny and worth reconfiguring your case for.

I really wanted that 166CFM for my cards and was able to make the necessary changes to mitigate the problems outlined above. With 4x 1 inch long bolts and 3 nuts per bolt I was able to mount the fan an inch back from the mesh. To be able to do this one has to be able to make do with only 1 HDD cage and to be able to mount the 1 remaining cage beside the PSU. This gives the NZXT 'on stilts' the room it needs to be mounted this way. If you don't mind more drastic mods to keep you HDD cages where they are then one can dremel away the metal mesh altogether to get the same result. I was able to use the less drastic measure as I was running 1 Hdd cage beside the PSU already anyway. The result is the highest CFM '200mm' on the market and a fan that is pretty damn quiet for the amount of air it moves. Mounted an inch back from the mesh all the whine was gone and 80% of the fan noise while still running the fan full speed.

In short depending what your cooling needs are or how much you are prepared to mod your case, this fan is either overkill and not worth the hassle or it is an absolute revelation!! YMMV.

I think I might have the "Front intake fan overkill" title in this thread

Man this sucks. Two messages since I was told they'd be sending out a new case two weeks ago with no response. It's been 1 month since I started the RMA process. Does my case manager just suck? Anyone know someone I could contact to get this moving? I'm about to go drop $100 on fans and a controller because these fans plugged into the mobo are unbearable.
