Usually solid black is ground and the other (mixed colours) is 5v.

thx guys

Can you put some pictures up? I'm not quite picturing what it is you're referring to. If it's a power supply cable, usually the only black wires will be ground. It would not matter if ground wires were mixed up, but I would like a picture to confirm.

Also, personally, I recommend doing the wires one at a time so this doesn't happen.

I have it running both the 200mm fans, the 120mm on the back and another 120mm on my radiator (Antec 620)- so four fans all up. The control knob is pretty warm! I wouldn't say hot, but close to it.. is this normal? I'm not burning it out running four fans, am I?
Secondly, I got a HX850 for my PSU and faced the fan inside the case- I've noticed not many of you do that, is one way better than the other? Should I flip it? My only other question, which isn't really that important, but what did you guys do to hide your USB3 cable that runs from the front port to the back of the mobo? It kind of bugs me hovering over my video card there!
Thanks!!!

I don't think the control knob should be getting warm. A few people have had their fan controllers die on them. I'm not using mine at all, I'm using an after market controller as many others do.

The 600T has a filter on the bottom for the power supply fan. If you place it with the fan side down, it will pull fresh air into the psu and exhaust it out the back of the computer. Right now, you're drawing warm case air through the psu.

On my system, I'm using a ASUS motherboard. This board came with a USB3.0 expansion plate for an expansion slot. I'm using this plate as an internal adapter. I removed the actual plate, and plugged the front panel USB 3.0 cable into it and stuffed the entire thing under that plastic pedestal that the hard drive racks are mounted on top of. It was a little tough to get it in there, but now that it's in you can't see it at all.

You can purchase adapters so you can plug that cable in internally:

This is similar to what I'm using (because it was free with my mobo):

This one is real nice:

Does anyone else's 600T SE make fairly loud cracking/creaking noises as it heats up and cools down?

If I spend an hour playing BF3 and then quit back into Windows and move into the next room to watch TV I can hear the case making loud "cracking" noises as it cools down.

I've noticed the side panel doesn't fit "flush" and I wondering it the case wasn't put together quite right in the first place which is one reason for the cracking noises as it expands and contracts?!?

Mine does it all the time. I read somewhere in here that masking taping around the edges will help to ease the noise.

Cheers garumaru. That's made me feel a bit better knowing it's not just me experiencing it.



I did a quick video to demonstrate the noise. If I'd left the video recording longer the noises get louder.

Tighten the Screws that hold the window on from the inside, not only does it make the side more ridged it no longer cracks.

I'm wondering if it is due to air pressure. I would assume that it would take far more of a change in temperature to cause the material to expand and contract.

Then i spent last evening swapping out the ram, installing the SSD, and reloading my OS and software.

I also decided to put the stock 200mm fan back in place until I get the EBM Papst ordered.
