I need to find out what going to be the best thing to do with that pain in the back side USB 3 cable the we have to run to the back of the 600T to sue the front USB 3 port is there some type of apter that Corsair do for the 600T to go to the motherboard I have look on there site but did miss seen it or does the 600T not have one yet ?

Make sure you get a motherboard that has atleast 1 USB 3.0 header and then all you need to do is get one of these http://www.xoxide.com/bitfenix-internalusb-3-0-adapter.html - you plug the blue end into your motherboards USB 3.0 header and then one of the other end plugs into the usb 3.0 cable. This will make it so you dont have to run your cable out the back of your case to take advantage of the front usb 3.0 port

There are a few options to chose from for the top fan. You could leave the 200mm fan that's there. If you don't have any noise issues with it, it will do a fine job. If you replace the front fan and the rear 120, consider making the front a high cfm fan so you can create positive pressure inside the case. You could also use 2 x 120mm fans in the top if you want more pure airflow. I would not recommend making them intake unless you have a dust filter. If you use a good fan controller, you can control the fans well enough to create positive pressure at any noise level by making sure the intake fans are always moving more air than the exhaust fans.
Positive pressure will force air out of all the areas in the case with no fans, like seams, drive bay covers etc. so they don't get clogged up with dust. If you don't mind modding, you can use a dremel to remove the mesh from the top and front of the case to increase air flow and reduce noise. This is the perfect time for that since you haven't started the build yet.
As for a cooler, that's really a personal choice. There are great air and closed loop water coolers available that will all do a good job cooling your CPU. The H60 is a little older now, but not a bad choice for the price. Most are using H80s or H100s (or similar coolers from other companies). Even Intel has a nice water cooler now. The common theme here is price. No matter how good your closed loop water cooler is, you can always find an air cooler that will be very close, if not even, in performance for quite a bit less money. Go through the thread and look at the pictures. If you decide you like the looks of having a small water block on the cpu then go with a water cooler. If you like the large air coolers, then go with an air cooler. The performance difference is pretty small (for the high end air coolers). Personally, I've done three builds for personal use with three different water coolers over the last year. I'm not going back to air. I think the water coolers are worth the price.
If you want really great airflow, remove the hard drive bays and mount one inside the optical drive bays. This will accommodate your hard drive and ssd while removing the obstacles partially blocking the air from the front intake. Again, you can see examples of this throughout the thread.
Good luck, and don't forget to post some pics for us when you're done.
Edit: Just thought I would mention, the Corsair Hydro series coolers, with the exception of the H40, all have 5 year warranties. If you decide to go with one, rest assured they stand behind their product.

Thanks a lot for your help! So my main issue is right now is what to cool my CPU with. Right now I have the Cooler Master: Hyper 212 EVO. I heard so many great things about this air cooler. I'm still unsure if I should get the Corsair H60 or H80 and go with Water Cooling. I'm not sure what to do!!!!!! I'm just going to leave the top fan stock and change the one up front with the MegaFlow 200 by Cooler Master. and change the back 120 with the Cooler Master as well. I'm not looking to overclock or add another GTX 680 SLI right now. So yeah, I'm stuck here. mad.gif

Question to 600T owners (SE or regular): how is the case for sound dampening? I've got a Gigabyte motherboard with a bad capacitor (or something sounding like a very high frequency high pitched dial up modem) near the back panel of the MB and wonder if I should still get the case I want (600T) or just go for 550D for some better sound insulation. Because the sound is coming from an area that's near the back side of the case, I imagine sound-insulated cases won't do much for it anyway... But if anyone's experienced otherwise and has had a good result with 600T or 550D covering up sounds (of say fans) from the back panel, please share your thoughts!

If you have the cash to get a H100. Get it and call it a day. If not stick with the EVO.

I heard people were having a hard time fitting the H100 at all on the 600T. I think I'll stick to the EVO for now, maybe if I upgrade in the future, I'll look into the Water Cooling. Thanks everyone.

And the person who listed this product above: Bitfenix Internal USB 3.0 Adapter... Is awesome for the 600T so it doesn't show the wiring coming through the back-end, good find!

What is the best 120mm Fan for Cases? I prefer Red LED or none.

i have a h100 and there is plenty of room lolz the case is made for it damn near just sayin dont let that be the reason u dont get it....

Yeah sorry guys, I assumed it wouldn't fit. I just picked it up today from Micro Center. Should I put the exhaust up on top of the side of the casing. Where is the best place to put my fans with the best air flow.
post #6809 of 18210
mines up top with a push config so the fans are outside the case under that mesh

I really want to get the white 600T case for a new build that I will be doing. I love everything about the case except one thing. Corsair needs to come out with a USB 3.0 upgrade kit for the front panel! That's the only thing hindering my decision right now.
