Here it is, the Corsair 600t sporting an XL-ATX mobo. Mine happens to be the MSI Big Bang X-Power ii X79. Ther are caveats, however. You have to be willing to give up a PCI-e slot and you have to be willing to cut the bracket that holds the PSU in order to fit a 13.5 inch mobo.

I still need to fix PSU situation, but for now this is how it looks.

Is it worth giving up the extra PCI slot? Isn't that the only thing you gain with an XL-ATX board?

Well, if you want to test the flex, you can remove the front HDD cage and push on the center of the fan in the middle circle to see how much room it gives you.

In the big oval, you can see the folded metal area I'm referring on the HDD cage and to the right inside the oval is the outer frame of the fan. When you're trying to install the cage with the fan installed, it's not normally possible as that metal fold extends the cage out by about 5mm and hits the outer frame of the fan. By pushing the fan outwards due to the case's own flexible frame (just simply pushing the center of the fan forward should do) gives you enough leeway to push the HDD cage pass the outer frame. Frame returns to normal, fan is installed, and HDD cage is installed without interfering with the fan in any way.

I kind of gambled on this actually. I even bought a Lian Li 3x5.25" bay converter to 3.5". Useful as it brings in another 120mm intake but fitment is an issue as you need to push it a bit further back than a normal 5.25" device for the front mesh covers to fit on again.

Anyone have any suggestions on where to place the SSD? I don't like the fact that it's taking up an HDD cage and I have another 2x2TB drives incoming.

I would really be glad if anyone told me if a blue LED strip would look bad with the stock white LED fan that comes with the white 600T, planning on placing the strip around the outside of the case and I have no hard drive cages in front of the front fan.

For me/ my configuration, yes. I don't plan on running an 3 or 4 SLI config anytime soon so its no big loss. I was planning on mounting the PSU somewhere else eventually anyway.

The 810 Switch is also a great case for this board and technically is the superior of the two. I own an 810, but I prefer the 600t over it for purely aesthetic reasons.biggrin.gif

Actually I stripped a NZXT led strip 1m from its sleeving and hot glued them to the fan. It's reall bright since the fan frame holds 8....will post pics tommorrow.

You don't need to repost all the pictures from the post above yours. You can use the Edit button so you don't need to make double posts either.

Any 200mm fan will fit if you move the drive cages to the rear position. If you are willing to cut the "curl" off of the front of the drive cage, you can leave them in position if you use a 25mm thick fan. 30mm fans won't fit without moving the drive cages back.

Here is a pic of a 25mm thick NZXT fan installed:

This picture shows the curl that has to be cut off:

I guess most of us believe that selecting a colour scheme is a pretty personal thing. What I think looks good you may not. When I first got my blue NZXT strip I was using the stock fan up front and it didn't bother me at all. Eventually I replaced it with the NZXT high speed 166 cfm fan, but I also installed blue LEDs on that fan:

450

That is an older blurry picture showing the blue interior and white front fan.

The picture above is after I replaced the fan with the NZXT fan and installed the blue LEDs in it.

Go ahead and get the blue strip if you like blue. If you don't like the fan you can always replace it later, or just replace the LEDs with blue ones.


Now, back to Diablo 3 applaud.gif
