The HDD cage should either have to be removed and installed in the rear position (like rck1984). You'd end up losing the second HDD cage though. Here's a thought though, what if both HDD cages were to be installed in the rear position (someone confirm is this is possible)? It's not the most aesthetically pleasing option, but I think its the only solution if you need all the bays and a Spectre Pro. As for the top intake, I think its the same problem with it being too thick.
The reason is that the pro's are 25mm thick compared to the 20mm of the stock fans (the normal, non-pro Spectre's are also 20mm). The rear exhaust should be just fine with a Spectre Pro though.

Good point, and i dont think its possible to fit both cages on each other just next to the PSU. Like i have on my pics.
What you could do is install the HDD's in the 5.25 bracket.

yeah they dont fit if you put an aftermarket 200mm front intake fan in. I have the CM MegaFlow and the cages wont fit infront of it either. No big shakes, i just have my HDD positioned the same as rck1984.

Beautiful build by the way mate. Its making me want to swap out my blue / black cables for white!!

You could always velcro a SSD onto the side of the 5.25 bays and then get a 5.25 to 3.5 bay adaptor if you got really stuck. thumb.gif

What are those 200mm bitfenix fans like? are they quiet? move a lot of air? I was going to get one but they are pricy at £18 and i had a Megaflow kicking around so fitted that for now.

Thats actually quite a genius idea. I didn't consider that possiblity.

Anyone have any information on the top fan compatibility? As in, on the outside of the case? Is that compatible with 25mm thick fans?

Yes 25mm fans will fit under the top removable cover above the mesh. I have 2 x AP-15's in the top of my case as as INTAKE for my H100. Works well, especially once the metal mesh and plastic supports on the removable grill are both cut out.

I admittedly did a mediocre job with it, leaving rough edges instead of folding them in, and it was a bit wider than the drive itself. I think with a little bit more refinement, it would be a fairly elegant solution. The drive I bought does have an eject button by the way:

Also, I think I'm pretty convinced on cutting out the grilles...at least the top grille. We'll see where this DVD drive thing goes. biggrin.gif

Ah, OK. That's not a "slot load" drive. That drive has a tray. It's basically a laptop drive.

This is a slot load DVD drive:

No tray. Loads like a car deck or a PS3. This is why I said I would try cutting a slot just big enough for a DVD.

That depends on your mobo. Mine won't control 3-pin fans either.

The fans I have on the H100 (Coolermaster Sickleflows) are connected to the case fan controller also because they overheated and acted strangely when connected to the H100.

I went with blue myself because I find the white looks pretty plain and it reminds me of Apple products. I find the blue seems to be more high tech looking. Personally, I would love some purple LEDs if I could find them.

Here's blue from an older build:

450

Just about any colour would look good in the white 600T since there is so much white to reflect the colour.

Has anybody had Cosiar send them just a fan controller? I dont want to send the whole case back.

What are those 200mm bitfenix fans like? are they quiet? move a lot of air? I was going to get one but they are pricy at £18 and i had a Megaflow kicking around so fitted that for now.

i really like the Bitfenix Spectre Pro fans. They are silent and push a good amount of air.
Some info concerning performance and noise:

120mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro White LED:

Current: 0.18A
Speed: 1200RPM
Air Flow: 56.22CFM
Air Pressure: 1.24 mmH2O
Noise: 18.9 dB
Bearing: Fluid dynamic bearings

200mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro White LED:

Current: 0.33A
Speed: 900RPM
Air Flow: 148.72CFM
Air Pressure: 1.26 mmH2O
Noise: 27.5 dBA
Bearing: Fluid dynamic bearings

I barely hear them. Tuning them a tiny little down with fan-controller makes them dead silent.

Info i could find on the Corsair fans:

Speed: 1000RPM
Air Flow: Up to 92 CFM
Noise: 28.8dBA
Bearing: Sleeve

Coolermaster Megaflow:

Speed: 700RPM
Air Flow: 110CFM
Air Pressure: 0.595 mmH2O
Noise: 19 dBA
Bearing: Sleeve

Pretty awesome specs as you can see thumb.gif
