So, I got my build in my white 600T. The case looks amazing, and love the way it looks. The case itself is about 3" wider than my previous case, with a good deal of that being behind the motherboard tray, so there's plenty of room for thick cables to be organized. But one bad thing I don't like about the case is the construction of it. I had been using the Silverstone FT01 for about 3 years, which is pretty much a solid block of aluminum. Coming into the 600T, it just feels like a cheap pile of steel and plastic, which is what it really is. I'm still using the case because again, I love the way it looks, but after using a case made of higher quality materials, I had forgotten how cheap a steel\plastic case feels frown.gif

It would be awesome if the 600T was made from better materials, the only problem then would be the price. It would probably be too expensive to be worth it for some people if it were even made out of aluminum with the same plastic.

So I just did my first build in a 600t and have a few water cooling questions for all of you. I'm intending to do it in 2 phases, first just the CPU and probably late next month when I get back from vacation I'll cool the GPU as well.

Here's what I plan to order:

Swiftech MCP35x Pump with attached tube reservoir.
XSPC Rasa Block

And here's my conundrum:
Just how much modding is involved to add a 360mm radiator up top? And how do people that have done it route the 360 inlet/outlet tubing, just through the 5.25 bays?

What about just mounting a 200mm Phobya radiator up top? From what I've read it's performance isn't far behind a 360mm radiator.

Mind you, when I cool the GPU I intend to install a 200mm Phobya in the front intake of the case. When I do this part, should I have the front as intake still and then have the top mounted 200mm or 360mm radiator as exhaust?

I am interested in WCing my rig some time soon too, and 360 up top seems like a good idea. Looks really clean too. I found this video on YouTube last week. He does it pretty well, but if you want to do it the exact same way as him, you're gonna have to use that exact radiator. You'll see why in the video. Otherwise you could just cut the thing off, which he doesn't want to do, but I don't know if it would ruin the grills closing/opening mechanism.

Hi guys, im getting my 600t white tommorow hopefully and have been thinking about sleeved psu cables. Would you recommend getting this complete sleeving pack http://www.scan.co.uk/products/corsair-individually-sleeved-modular-cable-upgrade-kit-for-the-professional-series-gold-ax850-ax750- or just buy bitfenix extensions? I know the latter is cheaper but i dont really want excess cable in the rear and dont know if it'll look better having white cables coming from the psu or black. Im also afraid ALL white cables might look 'too much'

What do the majority do, buy extensions? Btw i havent got time to sleeve them myself really.

Thanks smile.gif

I bought the extensions, and they've been fine. The side panel where all the excess cables go, have very nice space for the cables on this particular case. So you won't have any problems at all, getting it all to fit. So my vote is on Bitfenix extensions thumb.gif

IMO bitfenix extensions are junk! Too flimsy and in my experience the white ones get dirty really easy. Not a fan of the material either, I got generic performance PCs almost 2 years ago and they work so well hold shape well and the material is way above per for the price you pay. They are nylon and the bitfenix ones are like cloth, just IMO because I have dealt with more than one brand!
