I gotta say that filter kit for the 600t from frozencpu.com is the best thing ever....catches all the little dust, crucial!!!!!

This probably got asked a billion times but would the 600T fit the Maximus IV extreme motherboard?

To do it you have to screw the inside fans on the rad first..then screw the radiator on the chassis by pulling it towards you and away from the ram sticks but this way you have to use only 5 screws insteed of 8 and screw only the rad on the chassis without the upper fans..(look at the photo)
Once you do that you just put the upper fans using some zip ties ON THE RIGHT POSITION and not on the same position as the radiator cause the radiator is more to the left now..i hope you got what i mean but you have to try it to see how it needs to be done.

Hey thanks for the advice. I was able to fit the 2 fans inside and clear the msi mobo heat pipe and ram slots a few millimeters. How ever i was only able to use 3 screws to secure the radiator, not 5 but i tried. I was only able to zip tie one side of the top exhaust fans, but all in all, i got things to fit. +1 rep biggrin.gif

We were talking about doing push/exhaust which you can't do in the 600T using the H100 without modding since the fans would have to be under the rad, which means on the inside. So the rad would have to be up top. Also, stock, you can't have pull/intake for the same reason.

I'm thinking of using the stock fan I removed as an intake in the 5.25" bay area, do you guys think it's a good idea?

I don't see why not. If you're just looking for a free intake fan then that stock Corsair fan would be fine.

Guys a quick question. The fan headers on the motherboards, they seem to have different power levels. Some headers make fans run faster than the others. Is there a reason for that? And should I get a separate fan controller to run all of my fans instead of plugging them into my motherboard? Are there any benefits or draw backs to it? Im asking this because the front 200mm fan doesn't blow much air when i plug it into the motherboard, but when I attach it to an adapter and connect it to a molex into the power supply, the fan blows a good amount of air.

Some fan headers on a mobo will control the speed of the fans, while others will just run fans at full speed. Usually (not always) the headers that will control fans will be 4 pin (PWM) while the uncontrollable headers will be 3 pin. Also, most times, if you plug a 3 pin fan into a 4 pin header the fan will run at full speed all the time.

The advantage to using the mobo fan headers is that you can use software in Windows to monitor and display the RPM of the fans, and even control them if they are 4 pin fans (some newer boards can control 3 pin fans as well, consult your owners manual). Make sure you check your BIOS to see which fan headers are controllable. Fan controllers are great for a couple of things. Many of them have temperature probes and can display temps. Some of them have auto fan control. Some people prefer "dumb" controllers that are basically just knobs turning fans up and down. Some people like the fancy LCD display fan controllers for the bling factor. Personally, I like both as they each have their uses.

Thanks. I asked that because when i plugged in the fans that came with the h100 into the 3 pin header, it was really annoyingly loud, but blew a lot of air. I plugged the fan in into the 4 pin header even though it is a 3 pin fan, and the fan blew less air, and was less noisy, but only by a small fraction...id say at 80% max, no lower. I am trying to decided between a few drive bay fan controllers. Because im using the h100 fans as my rear exhaust and drive cage fan, and im sad to say while they blow a ton of air, they are super loud at max speed frown.gif lol. And my case fan controller sucks, i tested it and on highest setting the fans dont even reach 60% speed. So thats unreliable.

Awesome looking acrylic side panel, may I ask what thickness the acrylic side panel is? I'm looking at getting one myself and I've measured it to be around 10mm, though I need to compare since you've already done this. I'd rather get it right the first time around. Thanks!
