Hey all smile.gif
I'm sorry I haven't been able to read this thread in it's entirety - it's way too long, lol!
I'm hoping that you guys can help me decide on keeping a Corsair 600t case. . . . . or not.
I had planned on getting it and then was put off by some negative comments / reviews about the placement of the top fan, weakness of the front fan and general cooling / air flow problems. I'd already ordered a filter for the side panel as i was sure i was going to buy it and then due to money problems, held off for a while and did some more research on other cases, finally deciding on the HAF X as it appears to be one of the coolest (temperature wise) cases available and it's possible to mount a H100 in there with the fans pushing out.

The problem is that my girlfriend saw the custom filter I ordered for the 600t and went ahead and bought the case for me thumb.gif
I'm dreading telling her I'd changed my mind about what case i wanted. . . . so can someone please 'sell me' on keeping it.
It hasn't arrived yet and I don't have the H100 yet but will be getting that soon.

I'd like to know if anyone has a link to H100 performance with fans set to pull (as that is how i gather they have to be in this case) , or if anyone can reassure me that I'm not going to be losing performance with that setup? I don't want to have to modify anything!

I'm not worried about that front fan so much now that I read here that there are replacements that fit but would like to know if 2x120mm fans fit without any modding?

Also, is the top fan reusable on the side panel?

Compared to something like the HAF X (which Is no where near as nice to look at!), how do you all think the 600t does in cooling performance?

All opinions welcome and thanks in advance!

I can get around the girlfriend easy enough if i make out that I didn't know that the H100 I planned on buying doesn't fit or work very well. A bunch of flowers and dinner out would solve that problem, lol wink.gif

This will be the most expensive case I've owned though and I will be keeping it a long time and want to make sure it's a right choice for me.

Ok, you can only mount the H100, without modding, with the H100 inside the case and the fans PULLing out(between the mesh and the case). If you run the H100 as an intake (will improve your temps by 3-5c) you can run push.

I run the H100 in pull with 2 GT AP-15s ( they do not out perform the stock H100 fans) on my 3930k @ 4.5ghz and 1.328v. My average temps are around 62-64c with a 25c ambient temp. Keep in mind, I have cut out the plastic supports on the top mesh, due to the extra noise they make when fans are right up against them.

You can not run 2 120mm fans in the front of the case with out modding.

The top fan is reusable on the side panel, but if you want to use it as an intake, you will need to get your own screws. The stock 600t top fan only has mounting holes on one side, but it is fairly easy to line up 2-3 screw holes with the mesh.

I recommend that you get your self a dremel if you want to run H100 Push as exhaust or 2 120mm fans in the front.

Very useful info thanks thumb.gif
Seems to me that the way to go is to have the H100 fans pulling out and I could always worry about any vibration noise at a later date. I'd prefer the extra 3-5c gain by having them push but I imagine I'd lose some of that by filtering the intake (which I'd have to do due to dust from an open fire here) and it would mess with the airflow in the case thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

I was worried someone would suggest a Dremel, lol! I had to google what that is, which is why I don't want to do any modding. . . . and they're not exactly cheap redface.gif
I was hoping to use two Coolermaster sickle flow fans up front, just because I have them, but i see the early problem of finding a replacement 200mm fan that fits behind the hard drive cages has been resolved and can be done now.

Yes, I was thinking to use that top fan as a side intake to keep my cards cool but it doesn't sound too problematic to do smile.gif

Dude, just look at this case! This is a one of a kind case for sure, people that come over are gonna be like WHOA-SNAP! I enjoy the crap out of this case. So much so that I decided to do some modding to it! I put the big ole' side panel window on the side and I get a little happy feeling every time I glance at my computer! It has a lot of features and looks great, I don't think it would be a struggle at all to "live" with this case. smile.gif Bro... enjoy the wonderful thing your girlfriend just bought you! After all, just look at this thread! there is a COMMUNITY behind this case, and we all seem to love it in the end! Enjoy bro. thumb.gif

If you need some inspiration to keep the case, just look at this beauty - http://www.million-dollar-pc.com/systems-2012/project-30/project-30.html

Where else are you gonna find a case with such beauty!?!?
