I'm thinking of buying this case but i can't decide weither i'm going to choose the white or black version. On most pictures it looks like the black one is not really black but more like dark grey?

Aha, never thought about that. English is not my native language...

But still, what color should I choose?

gotcha, well i have the original grey one, if you hang tight i believe there is a gunmetal grey one either out or about to come out, i think that one looks pretty nice, otherwise get white thumb.gif

I'm not really a fan of grey. But if i take the white one i'm afraid i will regret it later, it looks great on pictures though.

If it's just the panel and not the chassis, contact Corsair and get them to send you a replacement. Make sure you tell them that you swapped them to opposite sides and the wobble stayed with the door.

Unless you guys think the Corsair 650D is a better starting point these days. I just hate how the 650D owners are in the middle of a fan controller RMA swap.

The 650D is an awesome case. I'm not going to put it down. However, both the 650D and the 600T have fan controller issues. My buddy bought the 650D and the fan controller switch broke in the first week. Many people with the 600T have had to RMA their controllers as well. Personally, I would have preferred the 600T with no built-in controller as I prefer the aftermarket controllers myself, and I don't like the big controller knob. The only difference between the 600T and the 650D for cable management is the door of the 600T, which is convex allowing more cable thickness. The 650D requires a little more effort but the end result is the same.

I have the original 600T with the two solid side panels. I actually purchased the windowed panel after I had my system built. You can purchase them off of Corsair's site as well as side panels with no window,

If you are interested in the white version, I'm not sure it had a solid panel available for it. However, you can still get the version of the Graphite 600T with no window or mesh, but you'll have to look around for it or order the solid side panel from Corsair's site. I know the store (in Canada) I got mine from still has some of the solid side panel versions left: http://www.memoryexpress.com/Search/Products?Search=600t .

Look around, you may find what you're looking for.

Hey guys. Been lurking OCNet for a while now. For the past 2 years I've been running an ASUS G73JH. Finally decided, and after a bit of persuading the wife, to eBay it this weekend. Should pull about $600 for it. I went ahead and ordered the 600T off of Newegg the other night because of the promo/rebate. My case should be here some time early this week, and I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on my parts tomorrow. The set up will be:
i5-2500K w/ a CM V6GT for cooling (not interested in WC right now) but I'm open to suggestions on a good alternative
Trying to narrow down the mobo, but right now I'm looking at either an ASRock Z77 Performance or an MSI Z77A-GD65
Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 8GB (2x4GB)
EVGA GTX 560
Corsair TX750 psu
LG GH24NS90 optical drive
1 CM Megaflow 200mm case fan
I'll be taking my 90GB OCZ Vertex 2 SSD out of the G73JH and I have an unused WD Blue 640gb that I can use for the time being. At some point I'll switch that out for a 1TB F3 Spinpoint.
Any opinions/suggestions on the build(especially mobo and CPU heatsink)? I'm trying to keep it within the 800-900 range, and PCPartPicker has me at $740 right now w/o the case added in. Also, how are the stock 120mm fans? Wasn't sure if it'd be in my best interest to order a couple to replace them. In a month or two I'll buy 4 120mms for the side door.
For what it's worth, it's going to be primarily used for gaming (BF3, D3 and others) and I may make my first foray into OCing, but I'm not sure on that right now though.

Although they are expensive, personally I don't believe you can beat the looks of having a good water cooler in your build. They perform as well as air coolers (and better in the case of the H100), and look really sweet. I think it comes down to preference and cost. Also, personally, I don't like having such big heavy chunks of metal hanging off my CPU socket. Now that I have two builds using Corsair water coolers, and I've built a few other systems with them, I'll never go back to air. The 600T is made for water coolers. There is only one 120mm fan in the 600T, and it's not the best. Wouldn't hurt to replace it. The 200mm fans are not bad, but you may decide to replace them if you think they're too noisy. Many people will cut the mesh from the front and top of the case to eliminate any noise.

Have fun with your build.

We can't tell you that. You have to decide which colour you like. That's like asking us what colour your new car should be. Why would you purchase a colour someone else likes?

Try flipping your HD's around. You can hide those cables.

The hds are in the 5.25 cage. The cables you see are from the dvd drive.
