Did you guys cut out the front grill for better airflow and less noise?

Some people have done that, seems like the front fan being too close to the metal mesh causes a whine pitch for a lot of people. Cutting it will improve flow and kill the sound.

I shouldve done that before i put everything together but when i tried to take out the front panel, it felt like I was gonna snap the plastic thing that holds it.

Edit: I just got it out and cut out the grill. Defnitely way better without it.

I'm really just more concerned for the 6950 crossfire I have set up as I'd love to use the window more than the mesh but if I have to use it I will. I will more than likely add a 120mm fan to the front when I buy this case before I try the mesh as the window looks fantastic. I can't find anything that does it for me like this case even though there are more functional cases at this price point or cheaper. Right now Canada Computers has it on sale until the 29th for $145 and there's one in stock at the location by my work. So anyone, especially Canadians, that don't own this case and see this post who are looking to purchase one like me should definitely check out their site as it's a great deal. I don't know what their shipping is like though as I've never dealt with them.

Unfortunate they have no stores out west. Great deal you got on it though. The only other case I would like as much as the 600T right now is the 650D. I really like the bezels on it, and the interior is almost the same as the 600T. With one top mesh instead of two the airflow is slightly better as well. Not quite as much room for cable management behind the motherboard though.

I feel that one of the rewards people get for doing a great job on their system is how many times other members repost pictures of it. The best builds, or very unusual builds seem to get reposted a lot. I didn't realize it was costing additional work, but I have always enjoyed seeing them as long as the repost didn't include a long list of pictures. It's usually only newer members who do that though. Give 'em a smack in the head and they smarten up wink.gif.

Wow, you got a really good deal too. Sometimes Corsair really seem to go out of their way to help you out.

That's a very odd result. Perhaps try mounting it as you showed in your first picture, with the airflow going directly up into the card?

it does suck being 20 w/ limited fundz....

A lot of people do like the CoolerMaster Mega Flows, but they won't fit without removing the hard drive cage. If you don't want to have to remove the hard drive cage, you could use the a Xigmatek XLF-F2006. They are 200x20mm, they don't move as much air as the Mega Flows, but they are better then the stock Corsair fans.

No worries 22 isn't much better, it's mostly the limited fundz and school part that blows. The solution is, dealz dealz and looking the other way (which means a horrible delicious diet of air air and instant noodles).

Thanks for the suggestion. I did move the hard drive cage closer to the PSU so the Mega Flows will work for me. I will pick them up today and see if its really good! thumb.gif
