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

I quite agree that it's the best looking case out there right now. I love the looks, It's just it's cooling ability compared to other cases in it's class i need selling on. . . . . but i do feel happier about that than I did earlier thumb.gif

Does this help? About half the price: big side window (easier than a full custom mod if you're not experienced).

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

You can fit most all 200mm fans in the front of this case, you don't have to worry whether they are 20mm thick or 30mm thick.

I used to run my H100 as intake, my back 120mm as intake, side panel as intake, and my front 200mm as exhaust, but it is better for the H100 to exhaust if you don't have a filter. (especially with your location).

I think it must go below the clips, because it can't close otherwise.

There are also multiple other 200mm fans you can put up front with little or no modding that move more air than the stock fan does. (If you use 2 x 120mm, a portion of one fan will be blocked). Don't forget, the 600T also comes with a mesh side panel insert that can handle 4 x 120mm fans. With this mesh side panel, there are no cooling issues at all if you fully populate it and it eliminates the need to replace the front fan. Using the 200mm fan from up top (as you mentioned) could also do the job with a little work. Personally, I don't even use it at all, but I modded my case for a 120mm bottom intake fan so I don't really need more intake.

One of the great things about the 600T (other than pure sexyness) is the great community willing to help out. There are also some very cool mods you can do (if you're into modding, and after using this case you may get into it).

I have everything I need here to mod my side panel for a larger window, but I just can't make up my mind what I want it to look like. It only cost about $12 for the plexyglass, $2 for some double sided tape, $7 for some trim and $8 for some jigsaw blades.

Having the balls to cut your side panel? Priceless.....

Hearing that adding fans to the side panel resolves any cooling issues is exactly what i needed to hear. That's excellent news as i have already got a DemciFlex filter for that panel thumb.gif
I'll try the top fan on there. If not, I'll buy a couple more sickle flow 120mm fans to go with the two i already have and put them on there smile.gif
After some research, i think i might want to try modding, although the thought of cutting into a £130 case still makes me a little uneasy, lol!
Thanks to everyone who replied and I'll be back to join the community when my case arrives and it's all set up wink.gif
I'm sure my girlfriend would thank you too if she knew how close i came to sending it back biggrin.gif

good to see that you're gonna keep it, there is a lot of knowledge in this thread that will help you with questions. if you look a few pages back, blackout, made a cadd design drawing of the case with measurements and such if that'll help you in your adventures of modding. the first couple of easy mods will be to cut the plastic "support" under the top grill and even the front 200mm grill and hole to increase airflow as well as removing that HDD cage platforms. have fun building!
