I've set my mind on the 600T in white. I just have two questions about the case.
1. Has anybody with the SE had ANY paint fade or discoloration problems?
2. Has anybody had any temperature issues with their components with the windowed side panel on?

For me:
1. No
2. No

Just a quick update.

After visiting with my uncle over the weekend for our family Thanksgiving, we were talking LED lighting primarily because he deals heavily with custom lighting applications with using LED lighting for home, automotive, etc.

I told him I was still unsure of what I was going to use for lighting in this build and that i needed his expertise on the matter - so he gave me a freebie sample of flexible RGB LED ribbon as well as a controller to test in my build.

The LED ribbon has a 3M adhesive backing, extremely thin, and is very discrete when attached inside the case.

Example:
304

After testing a few colors out, I found that White and Red had the best effects:

Here are a few shots of the lighting...

(Note: This was just loosely hanging, I later peeled off the backing and tucked it away temporarily)
338

338

Now here are a few shots with the panel closed...
338

338

These really put off a lot of light, and are fairly inexpensive (single colors dont require a controller, RGB requires a controller). I have the ability to change color on the fly, and i can control the brightness levels using the controller. I can even set rythmatic effects on the lighting as well.

In conclusion - it appears my uncle suggested this one perfectly.

2. Has anybody had any temperature issues with their components with the windowed side panel on?

I plan on going air cooling for now, water down the road.

I am using the 600T with the windowed side panel. I am also using air cooling on my two 6970 GPUs. Under full load they are operating at 69c (lower) and 76c (upper). However, I have added three fans in the front bottom portion of the case. One in the bottom where I have cut a hole for a 120mm fan to use as a fresh air intake, one on the bottom drive cage and one between the bottom hard drive cage and the 5 1/4 drive cage. These three fans combined provided about a 5c drop in GPU temps.

With no modifications the 600T is a medium airflow case unless you use the mesh on the side panel and add more fans. As for the paint on the SE, Corsair George says Corsair did extensive testing to make sure it would not fade.

I have used part of a blue strip in my PC. I had been checking into the RGB units with controllers and at the time they were pretty pricy. Can you tell me approximately how much a 2m strip like yours would cost with a controller?

Check this site out. This is where I will be ordering the final product from. What I am testing out now is all white and sticks out like a sore thumb.

I do know that the controller I want to use is up there in the $60.00 - $70.00 range.

Removed all but the very front plastic supports on the top mesh. On the front I removed most of the plastic supports on the mesh.

For the DVD bays it's full with a dual bay fan controller and BD and Card reader so no issues there.

Here's the temps biggrin.gif I would have pics, but said card reader is fried so.. bleh.

3QF15.jpg

These temps are achieved with everything on 100%... Sounds.. loud.
The fans in the case are as follows:

Front: 3 fans; Corsair 200, Zalman 120, Antec 120.
Mid: Delta 120 aimed at GPU's, Delta 120 between the lower HDD cage and PSU.
Back: 2 Antec 120's, Zalman 120 exaust on outside of case behind GPU exaust.
Top: Akasa 120 on H100, Antec 120 on H100, Akasa 80's attached to Vengeance Ram, 2 Antec 120's on H100 for push

I wish my camera worked mad.gif
