On an H60 or H80 setup - why replace a regular fan for a slim? But on the H100 and this case, was there anyone able to mount the H100 on top and still have access to their RAM and CPU Power+ ? (without scrapping it and going for real cooling) Feels like 100% Corsair build wasn't the answer, almost as though the 600T and the H100 were never meant to be together. Anyone else in my boat find a workaround?
All the real cooling will be gotten through DazMode as there are no stores that carry the good stuff where im located. Can't wait!

That fan spacing problem was the first thing i noticed when i saw the first look from hardwarecanuks frown.gif it made it sad kuz it had the same issue as the Zalman Z9 plus case I had.

The only suggestion i have is try to move the H100 closer to the side panel (ie if you are looking at the motherboard and cpu on the side pull the radiator towards you... the problem is the screw holes won't all align.

2. Mount the rad on the top, but move it closer to the side panel (towards you). The back fan on the top won't be ligned up on all the screws, but enough screw holes are available to make it work (I checked). This will bring the rad further out from the mother board and will allow you to mount fans on the inside of the rad as well as the outside. My only issue was that the inside fan closest to the front of the case could not be mounted if my memory fan was mounted at the same time. Other than that, this approach works very well since you can do a full on push/pull using regular fans.

I have a question, have you tried, using two more powerful *higher static air pressure* fans on the top pushing air INTO the case? and using the slims to pull air as well into the case
and then using the big 200 mm fan on the front to push (or pull ur choice) air out the back (front of pulling)? I think that might be a bit better for the h100 but your ram/mobo temps would suffer a bit. if you have that mesh side with fans pulling out then it'd probably compensate...

basically what I'm asking is have you tried a reverse air flow setup? Top (above grill) pulling air into the case, top rad, top under rad pulling into case (slim fans lower cfm so it might ruin the whole thing try 4xslim if you have them then compare with 2x bigger on top and 2x slim on bottom might be a stupid recomendation but i'm a noob in this). Front 200mm fan pulling air into the case. back 12mm fan pushing air out. 4x 120mm side fans pulling air out of the case.... Alternative is 120mm on the back pulling air in so all the air exits through the side.


EDIT: prob stupid but if it was my comp I'd try it at least to compare.

That's exactly the arrangement I found works best. Using 4 slims two on top - two on bottom, pulling air into the case. With the side panel off for now it seems to be best arrangement - and still have access to RAM.. I did play with adjusting the rad but wasn't satisfied due to the mesh hole layout on the top of the case. It actually restricted more airflow if you moved the H100 rad to the left or to the right

With more powerful fans on the top - a new problem exists - air resistance noise around the metal mesh, and more-so the clickable top grille. It sounds like a server rack.

When all is said and done - I think the best solution is to add an inch or so to case height on the next revision of the 600T.

Another solution i thought about was to possibly cut fan holes in the clickable top grille. De-bur the cut holes. Re-paint. That would stop my noise problem using bigger fans.

OR - a guy could also cut a hole in the top-case wire mesh big enough for the cpu pump to slide down through, mounting the rad on the top and also cutting a rad sized hole into the clickable top grille - de-bur the cut holes. repaint.

OOOORRRR - maybe Corsair makes a chiller box that fits EXACTLY into that top grille space...

Time to get out the dremel!

I say they should make a chiller wink.gif

On an aside have you tried those anti-vibration pads? I know some of them work well, although you say it causes more noise due to resistance through the mesh? If that's the problem. http://www.overclock.net/t/1213036/nibbler-club-all-nibblers-welcome/40 join the party over there lol this way it'll keep things hidden still and increase airflow to boot.

That's the factory side panel, i do believe. All us 600T owners ought already have one. Nothing beats flipping it on the wire-run side though. Some people get off on that stuff.

correct, i think it was in response to @bit1der asking about another manufacturer that could ship to his country. which is weird, i thought i saw mnpctech did international orders.

try this http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/acatalog/Mnpctech_Shop.html

uk and europe only. hopefully your country is in that region.

Just ordered my 600T, GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 and a H100 watercooler.
Pictures of the new setup will come next weekend, I guess thumb.gif

All the real cooling will be gotten through DazMode as there are no stores that carry the good stuff where im located. Can't wait!

I did, but I cheated:

450

I have the rad mounted up top. If noise is the only thing preventing you from mounting fans in the fan compartment, you could always cut out the inner mesh and the plastic frame pieces on the top mesh cover. People who have done that say it's much quieter with better airflow. Personally, I didn't find having three fans mounted in the fan compartment all that loud, I don't think the two H100 fans would have bothered me.

600T with three fans:

450

450

That was with a socket 775 board.

The 600T is made for a cooler like the H100. With everything stock, it fits perfectly with the fans up top there they were meant to be. In that configuration, you could use it as push/intake or pull/exhaust. One of the features that attracted me to this case was the top fan compartment, which was specifically designed with this type of rad/fan setup in mind. If you don't like that type of setup, the 650D offers the ability to house the stock H100 with the rad and a set of fans inside the case.

There's no spacing problem in the 600T. It fits a rad and a set of fans up top just like it was designed to.

Hopefully I don't need to do that at all. I've ordered some low profile Samsung ram and they are half of the regular ram size.
