[Official] Corsair Graphite Club [780T/760T/730T/600T/380T/230T] - Page 714

post #7131 of 18217

Aside from the price and the side panel, what's the difference between this one you posted, "the original CC600T," and this "600T" at Microcenter.

I was planning to go get this case at Microcenter sometime soon, but it seems that Microcenter sells it for $20 more than most places. I want the all black 600t. I plan on purchasing the transparent windowed side panel from the Corsair website.

What do you guys recommend as the cheapest way to buy this? I'd prefer to drive to a store and purchase it instead of ordering and shipping.

The original 600T has no side panel window (or mesh) and uses a bracket at the front to mount the front fan (no fan mounting holes).

The newer 600T has the front fan screwed to the front of the case using mounting holes, and it has the hole in the side panel with the Mesh installed.

If I were you, I would get the newer one from Newegg:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139007

There it's available for $139.99 after a $20 rebate, and using promotion code EMCNBNA35 which ends August 15th.

Note, if you get the newer one with the mesh side panel, you should be able to order the plexiglass window from Corsair for less than purchasing an entire side panel. Or, you may be able to purchase one from someone who bought the white 600T and is using only the mesh, which means they would have a spare plexiglass window piece (the white 600T comes with both the plexiglass window and the mesh). Someone here who is not using it must be willing to sell their plexiglass for cheap.

My 600T case came in today. I bought it from BestBuy, which said it was just the original model with no window or mesh side panel. And the pics on their website also supported that. Unfortunately it has the mesh side panel. UGH!!

I wanted the regular side panel. Anyone near Delaware that is willing to trade for a side panel with the mesh window?

Today's quick mod -



I'm now contemplating removing the rear 120mm "mesh".

What would be the point? The airflow won't be that different.

Really? That's not what a lot of people in this thread seem to say.

Besides I'm not intending on doing it for airflow. I'm doing it to reduce noise.

This. to think a mm here and a mm there would make a differnce in cooling your system. SURE you would increase the airflow by .3 CFM but your system isn't going to preform any better, at all.
That's just common sense doh.gif

I don't recall mentioning airflow anywhere?!? That was Evilsplashy.

Are you saying removing the rear mess doesn't decrease noise and doesn't improve airflow?

All those people are in the wrong then according to you?
