Newegg and Tigerdirect dont offer the original CC600T anymore. However I have found that Amazon and Best Buy both offer the CC600T.

Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Graphite-Series-Mid-Tower-CC600T/dp/rebates/B003Y0R1GO

Best Buy:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Corsair---Graphite-Series-Mid-Tower-Gaming-Case/1473269.p?id=1218261837243&skuId=1473269


From what it looks like, It doesnt look like there are any changes made to the case which would affect overall other than the windowed/meshed side panel.

EDIT: Also I came across this in the Marketplace and it seems like a really good deal depending on where you live for the shipping costs.

Can i ask some of you out there with a GTX 470 (or similar) what kind of temps are you getting on Idle and full load? i realized (and it was a pain too fix) that i had the 2 top fans facing the wrong way - so they were pulling air out rather then pulling it in - Got it so much my H80 in Push-Pull pushes the air out while the top 2 fans pull them in. My GTX 470 is currently sitting at 39c with the fan at 100%

Once i had them pulling air in they kept catching on the top of the case, thankfully i have 2 dust filters that i used too stop the screeching kind of noise that it created

What would be a "good" Idle and load temp as i am wondering how fan down i could turn the fans down before the temps become a worry

My wife's idles at 42c and load is 79c running Heaven with the fan all the way up. It's in an NZXT Lexa S case so the airflow isn't that great. All I did to it was redo the paste and it has a high flow bracket + backplate from EVGA on it. Ambient is 28c.

seeing as how i havent used Heaven im not too sure what that is, im guessing benchmark/stress test kind of thing. Just finished a few hour session on Prototype my CPU didnt go above 34c which im loving thanks too the new H80 i got my GTX 470 at 100% topped out at 68c though not sure if it was sustained at that or if it was just spiked at it, it was hanging around 55c when i closed the game down though.

At idle again at 100% i am sitting at 40c. whats a "good" idle temp, would be be okay if it was like 45-50c at idle? thinking about reducing fan speed while not gaming and such

An idle between 40-50c is fine. Obviously these cards are known for running hot and have terrible default fan profiles. My current card idles at 30c, but that doesn't count since it has a nice cooler and is newer tech.

If your concerned about heat then mabe you could try one of these, I have heard good things about them. It should be quieter too.

Mmmm my idle temps are going down :/
currently idling at 38c and another round of Prototype and when i quit the game it was around 45c
So think i might be able too turn the Fans down a bit for when im not gaming

Yeah i did have a look at that, think i may just be over reacting after all its a different case cant expect the exact same temps

Yes you can. I use very hot water and then shake the hell out of it before letting it sit to dry.

I am sure i am missing something VERY simple, anyone know what that could be?
BUT on a good side, no need for drivers i have somehow fixed the headphone problem while trying too fix something else so i have NO idea what it was lol

Make sure you have "Legacy USB" enabled in BIOS. USB keyboard and mouse should work in any USB socket.

Note that there is an edit button so you don't have to leave multiple messages in a row.

Try a different keyboard for a test. If the fault still occurs, try unplugging the front panel USB headers and try the keyboard again (plugged direct into the mobo). One guy had an issue with the ground on the circuit board for the front panel connectors. If the keyboard doesn't work with the front panel unplugged, you may consider adding a ground wire. Ask if you don't know how to do it.

Are there any quality differences or changes between the current versions and the original version other than the color and the windowed/mesh side panel?
Thanks

Nope, I believe it's still being sold with the USB 3 cable that plugs into the rear ports. You can get an adapter though that will let you plug it in internally.
http://www.hd-plex.com/usb.3.0.html

Personally I was happy with the external connector as the first build I did in this case didn't have USB 3.0 on the mobo, so I had to purchase an expansion card for USB 3.0.

I don't think the original model with no window or mesh is available any more (unless you can find old stock). However, you can order replacement side panels from Corsair or if you look around there should be people like me who own the original, ordered the windowed side panel and now have a spare side panel. You may be able to get one for a few bucks plus shipping. Of course, that's assuming you want one without a window or mesh in the side.

The newer versions have better fans than the original version did. The originals had transparent 20mm thick 200mm fans that were really bad and hardly moved any air. The newer ones are much better, but some people complain they are noisy. I've heard them and they don't sound noisy to me, but perhaps it's the luck of the draw.

My cards are 69xx cards, but they are "idling" at about 55c with an ambient of 23c so I think you're worrying about nothing. In fact, they have actually increased their temp since I installed the Spectre Pro 200mm fan at the front of my case (which I'm removing when I get the time). I'm going back to the NZXT 200mm fan, which is way better. My cards hit the mid to upper 70s when I'm stress testing.

As for the noise your fans make, if you install some washers between the fan and the case, problem will go away.

Yeah i am borrowing another keyboard tomorrow apparently from what i have said about the issues i have been having its something called "ghosting" i know about it on monitors where an image gets stuck over the screen if the same still image is on the screen for ages and such never heard about it for keyboards. That particular problem has gone now and they work anywhere but still get the odd issue where the keyboard thinks i am pressing Enter when im not as well as in games pressing "W" and space bar wont make the character jump but pressing directional pad forward and pressing space bar does make the character jump. So i am really hoping that the keyboard is what is at fault seeing as it does it in EVERY USB socket i put it into as well.

My idle temps have gone DOWN now, tend too be idling at around 39-40c at the moment. Having more time on Prototype my load temps when i finished were around 55c as well so maybe it just needed that little bit of time to get used too being in a new case lol i am going to slowly reduce the fan speed until the GPU idles at about 45 which still sounds like alot lol
