thank you!

well you can always go to the ocn marketplace and find stuff, thats where i got my pump and raystorm cpu block and the initial 12 EK fittings. total for those 3 items were 120 shipped.
the gpu blocks were 114 each, and the EK sli connection bridge and links were 40, quick disconnects avg about 23 for one set (bought 6 sets), phobya front 200mm rad was 80, top xspc EX240 rad was 45, then tubing was 20.

so i guess in all i dropped right around 700for the cooling. lol thanks for making me add it all up to realize how much i spent just for cooling. axesmiley.png

i'd get these if i were you

not knocking the NZXT ones, but i'd rather have it regular length then super long

I'm pretty new and need direction. Lol. I'll admit to it.

I think they make a presleeved kit for your PSU, you can get it a few different colors right from corsair!

Check them out here!

For $90, that's sounds no fun.

Since there isn't much difference in temps (1-2C) not running a push/pull configuration is definitely recommended to be safe from a headache and, in my opinion, looks better. It seems the Asus P8P67/Z68 boards don't allow for it to fit and there are probably other ones that will present the same problem. I should have been clearer in my last post. Here is the thread though with a good quality photo of it barely fitting:
http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=97885
My apologies for the late reply and for the previous post not being 100% accurate.

So, as with the socket 775 boards in the 600T, it will depend on the board. Even with the correct board using push/pull, you can see how the cables in the corner have been mashed by the fan. However, that's still more room than the 650T has even if it's only a couple of mm.

The better solution is the off-set install. That can also be done on the 600T, but it seems better on the 650D as there is less blockage in the upper mesh. So, anyone wanting push/pull in a 650D using an H100 will have to plan for it and select a motherboard that can accommodate, and also most likely have to put up with some mashed cables if they don't want to do any modding. Personally I would opt for the off-set install, although technically it's a mod it looks simple enough that anyone could do it. With a slight bit of modding you could even get all the screws installed. It's a simple and eloquent solution, I'm surprised Corsair didn't think of it before manufacturing the cases.

So, I suppose the correct response to the question is, "It depends" for both the 600 and 650, with the 650 offering (imo) the better solution..

It's too bad the top mesh in the 650D doesn't go a bit further toward the front. They could move the rad forward enough to avoid the CPU power connector. I did this in the 600T case when I was using a socket 775 board, but none of the i5 boards I could find had the memory mounted low enough to clear.

I also agree that push/pull won't make more than a few degrees difference on the H100.

I was woundering, can i but a EK 120 XT rad as well in there(exhaust fan area)?, is there enough room for it, maybe with mounting the fan on the outside, keep in mind the only water cooling company that sells there parts in UAE is EK, so they the only company i can buy from, if you have a EK 240 rad please make the measurements and help me please smile.gif, thanks for your time, cant wait to join the club thumb.gif

That's a mighty big rad. Remember that there's not that much side to side room in the 600T because the top outer grill isn't as wide at the back as it is at the front. You can move a rad like that to the side to clear the motherboard components, but you may find it partially obscured at the back where the mesh narrows. Or, you may leave the top fans centred while offsetting the rad, but you will get that nasty obscuring problem at the back again. Some people have mounted them crooked, with the front off-centred but the rear centred. Looks a little odd but works. I suppose on a rad that thick you would get more of a benefit from push/pull.

Just cut the front fan grill off my 600, gotta recommend that to you guys, looks so much nicer and sounds better. I'd take pics but I'm in the middle of an overhaul on her and I don't want you to see her all dirty and all thumb.gif

I would do it as well when the weather is right. I just want to cut it outside so I don't need to clean up debris.

Just got rid of that final HDD cage in the front of the case, Installed the NZXT Sleeved White LED Kit (2 Meter) and put on my shnazzy new sticker on side of my case!


Can I get in the Owners Club please?
