Well guys, its been exactly one year since I got my amazing 600T SE case and it has been an incredible desktop companion. But as always, all good things must come to an end. It's time to move on since I don't really want the hassle of trying to fit a full loop in the case. I'll be moving my main rig to this:

450

Anyway, it's been fun and this club has been a wealth of info for me over the last year. Luckily I won't really be saying goodbye because I am planning to move my backup rig into the 600T. Can't let such a great case go to waste! I'll jut leave a couple of pics of my "Jedi Master" here for posterity! Cheers!

My parts will be here this afternoon, and I'm stoked as hell. I've got a question about air cooling and how to go about using my fans. For the time being, I'll have a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO on the CPU. From what I saw, it only comes with 1 fan but I can place a second on the other side. When my stuff gets here, I'll have 2 120mm Cooler Master fans as well as 2 200mm Megaflows. My original plan was to take out the top HDD cage, and move the bottom one next to the PSU so that I can replace the stock fan with a Megaflow. Along with that I was going to put one of the 120mm fans on the CPU, replace the rear 120mm with another Cooler Master, and finally replace the top fan with the second megaflow. I was reading a while back (about post 3000 something) and saw someone mention that it's better to put two 120mms up top instead of the 200mm. That said, should I go ahead and put my two 120mms up top and only have 1 120mm on the EVO, or use a 200mm up there. I haven't had a desktop in years and even then it wasn't anything special, so really this will be my first foray into a 'nice' PC and worrying about airflow/cooling.

Edit: Annnnnnnnd nevermind. Little more reading through the thread and I saw that you apparently can't fit a megaflow up top. I think I'm going to put my two 120mm Cooler Master fans up top, the 200mm fan in the front, and order a few more 120mms. Any recommendations? Read good things about Xigmateks and Scythes but not really sure. I'd like decent airflow and decent dB, but if I had to sacrifice anything it'd be dB. Even though my computer is for the time being in the living room, I won't be able to hear my wife *****ing when I have my headphones on. devil-smiley-019.gif

Well, the megaflow MIGHT fit up top, just depends on your motherboard. As for the Hyper 212 evo, using Push/Pull doesn't drop your temps by much, so using the 2 cooler masters up top is a good idea. If you have the mesh panel you could zip tie the other 200mm fan to that, and have a ton of airflow. thumb.gif

3820 and 3930 shouldn't be that different in temps. I personally feel like my 955 BE ran hot.
