Edit

I think Corsair lied to me

Hmm. I'm looking at it right now. Give me 10 minutes. I'm going to unhook my Noctua CPU and attempt to install the GTX 240.

I don't think its going to fit.

Be kind, resize. 14.1megapixel is way to big to look at full size and looks like poop after OCN resizes it to fit. BTW do you have pic of after watercooling?

I haven't watercooled yet ... still building up the perfect parts list.

Well BAD news. MY 240 GTX isn't even CLOSE to fitting. Holy crap it's huge. Here are the pics. I apologize for the picture quality. Unfortunately my real camera is dead. I had to make due with my iphone.

Also note the scythes I placed on top. In the PULL position, the right side fan scrapes against the metal grill because it has a slight concave. I had to toss a couple of washers underneath to make it work.

Also, why the hell doesn't scythe come with mounting screws? The 4 screws I got don't even thread into the fans.

#1 : Where the GTX 240 hits the ram.

#2: The mounting holes on top.

#3: The 120 back rad.

#4: double scythe fans

#5: double scythe fans with top cover

#1: Approx 1 inch from top motherboard.

#2: 1 inch from backside, also the radiator hit the power cord.

#3: This shows where the mounting screws line up with the tape measure. It shows how deep the rad needs to be.

Hi everyone!

First off, let me introduce myself. My name is Bo and I guess I'm one of the geezers participating in this forum (60 years old). I've been messing around with computers for probably longer than a lot of you have been alive. Do punchcards and FORTRAN sound familiar? Anyway, despite all those years of being involved with computers, this is the very first time I actually built one from scratch.

I researched, studied and read more stuff on various forums than I can remember - and actually learned quite a bit as a result. This has truly been a fun, rewarding project and it most certainly would not have been possible without the wealth of information that one can find on the internet. I am extremely grateful to all those folks who freely share their knowledge and expertise on the myriad of computer related forums.

Initially, this will be an air cooled computer. However, as one can see from the attached pictures, I have left plenty of room for a water cooled setup once I overcome my trepidation with assembling something like that. So, without further ado -

System Specs:

* Case - Corsair 600t

* Side Panel - Courtesy of MnpcTech

* Motherboard - ASUS Sabertooth X58

* CPU - Intel I7 950

* GPU - ATI 6950

* Memory - 12 GB Corsair Vengeance

* CPU Cooler - Zalman CNPS9900

* Power Supply - Corsair AX 750

* Storage - 60GB SSD for OS and Programs
3X Caviar Black 1.5 TB in a Raid 5 Array

* Optical Drive - ASUS Internal Blu-ray Burner BW-12B1LT

* The drives are in a Xigmatic cage with its own 120mm fan.

* All fans were replaced by XigmaticOrange LED fans with the exception of the two on top. They are Akust 120mm reversible fans. All other fans are controlled by the motherboard. (Contrary to many comments regarding these fans, I find them to be very quiet). The side panel fan is a Xigmatic 140mm and will be replaced by a non-LED fan shortly.

* Monitor - DELL U3011

* Operating System - Windows 7 Professional.

As an aside - It's amazing what a difference in case temps the addition of that side panel fan made. My temps across the board went down by 6 - 8 degrees.

I think that pretty much covers everything. I'm a Currency and Futures trader and that's what most of this computer's resources are dedicated to. I also am an avid photographer (used to be a pro) and so use some fairly CPU and GPU intensive programs like Photoshop.

Anyway - Thanks once again to the Computer building community. I'd be happy to answer any questions.

Happy Computing,

Bo

Wow, customer support wasn't even close I'm sorry if anyone bought this case thinking they had more room from me saying there was 3 inches, I was going by what Corsair told me. This might be a deal breaker for me, time to start looking at cases again.

Hi guys.. first post and first build. I have been lurking on this thread and a few others for a while now just reading and soaking in all the great information you all have to share. I got this case a few months back and have been working on it steadily since then.

Here are just a few pics of the progress. It's my turn to pay it forward, so I will help and share my experiences with the case where I can.

First attempt..


I then drowned the CPU..


Did some single sleeving..


Cut a weird shaped window..


Got bored and started painting to sorta match my mobo..


Upgraded some components and water loop..


Another upgrade to loop (getting cramped)..


Cut a full panel window..


To Do: GPU on water, sleeve new PSU, and some painting.. then we shall see from there.


Thanks for looking.
