That being said, some people won't notice the difference, especially of the rear fan is controlled by the fan controller or on a PWM duty cycle in the BIOS.

Well, part of the huge difference is because the Noctua heat sink is about 2 inches from the fan so a higher CFM plays a much bigger role. I think you would see much less of an effect with a different CPU cooler.

As for the noise, I really can't hear them at all. Perhaps I will feel differently when my water cooling is setup and I don't have the GPU / CPU fans blowing.

Does anyone know if corsair will always sell the side window panel separate on the 600T, or will they start selling it with the window already in it? I noticed the 600 SE has it just wondering if they will come stock with the 600T in the near future?

CorsairGeorge - So I am going to install my H50 with a push/pull configuration and I am going to use the stock H50 fan and stock 120mm fan that came with my 600T. From my understanding, they are both 50 CFM fans. If they are not the same, which fan should do the pushing and which should do the pulling? Thanks.

Hi GoodInk --

Yeah, I was really surprised by the drop in temperatures across the board. At first I thought it was a fluke, so I did some testing. It was easy because I had those reversible fans up there so all I had to do was flip a switch. Now, I do have a side panel fan so obviously that is a contributing factor, but I ran tests without that fan and still experienced a fairly significant change in temperatures. I'm not much of a scientist, but I never did buy that argument about hot temperatures rising. I mean, c'mon, we're only talking inches here not 12 foot ceilings. Fans in a small enclosure like a computer case are going to override any of the "heat rising" theories...

Can't comment on unannounced products dude, but right now the only thing we've announced is the white one with the window and mesh.

If you had to pick either window or mesh, which would you pick?

The case fan with the 600T is lower speed and CFM than the 1700 RPM fan that comes with the H50. The difference isn't massive, and you'll still probably be better off with push-pull with unmatched fans than you would with a single fan, but honestly I'm not sure of the higher RPM fan would perform better as a push or pull fan. My gut feel is that it should be the push fan, but I could be way off. Let me know how the numbers look when you do your testing.

Try experimenting to see what works best for you.

Run 3 tests:
1- H50 fan as push fan.
2- H50 fan as push fan and 600T fan as pull fan.
3- 600T fan as push fan and H50 fan as pull fan.

For each test, run Prime95 for 1 hr using the small FFT test. Leave something like RealTemp running to monitor temps. After 1 hour, record the max temp on the hottest core. Use whichever configuration yields the best results.

I would like a window, but not sell 3 versions. thinking.gif

Yeah, there's the rub, right? I don't want to sell:

-Grey 600T with solid panel
-Grey 600T with mesh panel
-Grey 600T with windowed panel
-White 600T with windowed and meshed panel

We're including both with the white 600T but the cost is higher - by about $20. MSRP goes from $159 to $179, primarily due to the cost of the mesh and windowed panel.

I don't want to raise the price of the Grey one, if I can help it.
post #680 of 18190
I've seen other complanies do window and non window versions. If you don't want 4 revisions, what about selling a Grey with windowed and meshed panel for the same price as the white? I don't see why the solid panel version would go up in price, plus alot like the look of it.

-Grey 600T with solid panel-$159
-Grey 600T with windowed and meshed panel-$179
-White 600T with windowed and meshed panel-$179
