[Official] Corsair Graphite Club [780T/760T/730T/600T/380T/230T] - Page 432

post #4311 of 18210
Hello.

I just bought my 600t white edition and need some tips cooling it (GPU mostly).

I have an GTX 590 reaching ~85°C blowing hot air inside the case (yep, it blows against the intake fan) and cant figure out a way to low its temp.

My CPU cooler is a Corsair H100 with fans mounted on top pulling hot air out. No problems with CPU temps really.

I also bought an Noctua NH-914 FLX to replace the original rear fan (could it be any worse?). I read somewhere in this forum it would fit but I couldn't close the side panel after installing it. Am I doing something wrong ?

I would like to keep the side window, but maybe i'll be forced to replace it for the mesh one filled with fans to cool GPU. Talking abou GPU, would a 590 gtx quad SLI melt this case down ? ;-)

Anyway, any help would be very apreciated.

Thank you.

These are very nice cases might get one in the future. But on a side note OP avatar is epic lol.

Possibly a more powerful front 200mm intake fan or two higher cfm 120mm fans.

Another update from me..
Got the full acrylic side panel,the asus logo was painted white so it reacts to the uv light..changed the 200mm front intake fan leds to blue and made a cover for the uv light to look better..

Hope you like it guyz!!!

If you don't want to install the side mesh, there are a couple of other options. One as someone else mentioned is to install a better 200mm fan. Unfortunately the 200mm fans that will just fit aren't much better than the stock fan. The better fans all seem to require a slight mod to mount them. Another option is to remove the upper hard drive cage, and move the lower cage back against the PSU so the front fan has a better path to blow cool air.

If you are into modding and don't mind voiding the warranty, you could cut a 120mm hole in the bottom of the case in front of the PSU and install another intake fan. I did that and it helps with GPU temps. Another thing you could try is to get your front fan to exhaust and the rear fan to intake (or even the H100 fans to intake). Unfortunately this would require you to battle the dust monster by either cleaning often or installing some dust filters.

If you prefer leaving your lower hard drive cage toward the front, you can mount a 120mm fan between it and the upper 5.25" optical drive bays. This improves the airflow created by the front 200mm fan. Lastly, many people have purchased or fabricated a fan mount for the 5.25" bays to hold another 120mm fan running as intake. This uses up three bays though, but can improve your temps. The simplest one I've head of is one fellow who used the bottom of an old cd ROM drive to mount the fan and then he just slid the assembly into the lower 5.25" bay. Great way to make a quick and dirty 120mm fan mount.

If you click on the picture in my sig you can see some of the modded fans I'm referring to.

That looks absolutely amazing bud. Great job on that. Well done!


I got my super bright blue LEDs today. I also got a great deal (black Friday...in Canada...go figure) on an ASUS P8Z68-V PRO main board, an i5 2500K CPU and 8G of G.Skill DDR3 RAM. So I'll be spending my weekend rebuilding the PC and installing the LEDs in my 200mm NZXT fan. I'm going to cheat and not reinstall Win7. I've had luck doing this before so I'll back up everything and make this attempt. We'll see if it just installs the correct drivers and works of if it's so much trouble I decide to reinstall Windows 7.

Hey does anyone considered the old school 600T with no side panel mesh rare by any chance. I got mine and I love the whole no mesh thing going on, maybe add a little sound dampening. ect. It's super sleek and cool I think haha. redface.gif
post #4319 of 18210
Not sure how rare it is.

I am with you, I wasn't down with the mesh side panel so I ordered the windowed panel from Corsair.

I am probably going to put sound dampening material on both panels (window unobstructed ofc) as well as exposed areas of the bottom.

I like the window, not a fan of the mesh look. But then again, the mesh is more for function than it is for looks smile.gif
