I bought this case a month ago for my new built.
It's a very good case in terms of cable management, very spacious for any kind of built, and it looks good. Also it's very quiet, no vibrations at all.
But several days ago the front fan started to fail.
With the fan controller set on min (I always set it to min) the fan started to increase a decrease its speed randomly and LED's became intermittent. I thought it was a defective fan but first I tried to change the connector where the fan was connected. There are 4 connectors, only 3 are being used (front, top and rear fan), so I decided to change the fan connector to the empty connector. I powered the computer and the front fan worked fine.
So my 600T White case has a defective fan controller, at least one of the four connectors.
I am not contacted to Corsair yet because I read other similar experiences with a defective fan controller where the option that Corsair offers is to return the case. Shipment costs almost like a new case ... it is not an option.
Now, i am less satisfied with this case. I hope the rest of connectors don't start to fail ...
Regards

Pop off your front panel and clear your top 5.25'' just to make sure the other end of the fan wire is plugged into the fan controller. Mine was loose. Pushed it in and I was good. I was bummed thinking 1 of the 4 fan connectors was defective. Might as well just check. I switched up to a different fan controller anyway, but it made me feel better :]

Thanks for your reply.

I exactly did that ... The problem is in the controller, not in the extension cables.

That's a good point. I'll remember that.

Every few months for me. I have two intake fans and both have filters, so the case is pretty good at keeping reasonably clean.

One thing I would like to do is this: have 4 x 120mm fans on the side panel, hooked together and to a small fan controller, something with maybe just one dial to turn up or down, similar to the one built into the case but smaller. If such a thing exists, I was thinking it could be mounted to the inside of the case side panel and a hole drilled through for the dial to be accessed from outside the case.
Does anyone know if this is possible?
I don't really want to add a large fan controller to the front of the case as I'd like to convert at least two of the remaining three 5.25" bays to HDD bays (already seen some adaptors that do this) but i figure that would be the only other way of doing it?
@ Dakiller234, looks good - I hope you're enjoying your case as much as I am biggrin.gif

There's this:

Since it's PWM, if you combine it with this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812119248

You could combine 4 fans on one internal control while the splitter draws power direct from the PSU. Of course you would require all PWM fans, which seem to be getting hard to find for good quiet ones.

You could always mount a regular fan controller backwards on one of the drive bays, or even a 3.5" controller in a hard drive bay. There are also a few PWM fans available that come with back plates (slot covers) with a control on them.

Here's something I've thought about trying:

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186036

PWM case fans that can be daisy chained, so you can control all of them with one control.

While the rig was down for monthly cleaning, I swapped some fans around to up the case pressure and made aluminum mesh dust filters for the rest of the intake fans so now all intakes have them.

Excellent light placement. I also like the way your hoses are set up for minimum lengths. Effective and clean looking. Nice job.

I'm pretty sure lately I've read about people saying Corsair just sent them a replacement fan controller. Email Corsair George for sure and see if you can get just the controller.

I still can't decide what to cut into my side panel. I would like to do something different.....

Very clean job, I would like to see what the case looks like with the door on, I assume you are using the window?




I decided to take a trip down memory lane, you guys keep cranking out awesome 600T builds. Its a shame both of my 600T cases are collecting dust in the attic. redface.gif Well I am due for some hardware upgrades, Intel here I come!

Thanks Mergatroid. If so, there would be a nice Corsair support.

I don't want only to show the bad things, so I decided to post a couple of pics of mine. Nothing special, but I like it.
