They are nylon and the bitfenix ones are like cloth, just IMO because I have dealt with more than one brand!
Thanks for your take. I might just get the corsair full set then, i suppose your paying for quality. Unless anyone has any cons of the corsair set?

I put my Corsair H100 on the top outside and have two Corsair SP120's on the inside pushing through the rad to the outside world. Only needed a bit of cutting and no cutting of the removable top grill. The system looks much better with the Rad on the top and showing off the fans on the inside.

One thing to note with the vid, is that he shows the front 200mm fan coming with a fan mounting bracket, I got the black 600T mesh case and it did not come with this fan mounting bracket.

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 have not put a 360 rad up top, but I did mod my case so I could move the H100 forward one fan length toward the front of the case, which is basically the same thing.

All I did was put a 120mm fan up top in front of the two fans that I already had mounted. I traced around it and cut both the plastic and the metal under it. I ended up with a space perfect for a 360mm rad.
The picture below shows where the hole was cut (ignore the off-set fan, the picture was from when I had an H70 installed up top)



And this is what I ended up with:



That was my all time favorite mod. The three fans up there looked really "down to business". I did this so I could mount the H100 using push/pull but unfortunately, since I purchased an i5 motherboard, my mod no longer works because the interior fans now hit the memory/memory socket.

The mod itself was really pretty easy to do. I did all the cutting with a Dremel. In the video provided by Okang, you can see the guy has some problems taking the top mesh off because he put the rad up top instead of inside. Also, he's using a 30mm thick rad, which is amazing because I really didn't think one would fit up there. I bet the rad is actually hitting the metal mesh, which I would prefer not to do. I would recommend getting a 25mm thick rad and putting the rad inside and the fans up top. Since he's using a 30mm thick rad, he had no choice but to put the rad up top since if he put it inside the case it would likely hit the memory and/or the CPU power cable connector.

Something else to think about is how you want the fans to work. If you're going to use exhaust or intake, and weather or not you will put the fans inside or the rad. I prefer exhaust myself, and I also prefer push. Because of that, I have my H100 rad mounted up top now, with my fans inside pushing air out through the rad.

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

Since you have a Corsair modular power supply, you can go onto Corsair's site and purchase sleeved cables made specifically for your power supply, so you won't need extensions.

http://www.corsair.com/en/power-supply-units/psu-accessories.html

And they have different colours too.

Edit: Oops, I guess you already saw them. I think they would be better than using extensions.

Just cut some holes in my case ready to get my watercooling stuff

(^This is for when I upgrade, I want to get the Phobya 200mm, but my budget isn't covering that at the moment)


Just curious to know what anyone thinks of my WC basket, before i hit buy? smile.gif


Didn't want to go over £220, so I'm hoping that what I've chosen will be fine and dandy..
Ill also be getting a mayhems die at some point too, to make the res look nice...
Would be nice to know if I've missed anything (in my price range) that would be better than something else i have picked...

smile.gif

EDIT: Is 3 litres of Di-water enough for that loop or should I get more?

Yeah, I know. The case isn't bad for a steel\plastic case, but that's just the nature of steel\plastic cases. Just different than what I've been use to using since 2008. I paid something like $270 for my Silverstone case back then frown.gif

It's not 100% done, but I was too lazy to make a decent circle, lol. I'll make it prettier some other time.

Other than that, I did this:



A loooooooooong time ago, I said I'd try to make something like a holder for my headset. Recently, I got an idea. These small fancy things came with my BitFenix LED-kit. I figured I wouldn't need all of them, so I took two of the big ones and got my mom to get some super-strong double adhesive tape from her work. This is the result.



I was going for the front, but I decided to do the right side. That looked quite ugly, and I wanted it to be more practical, so I tried to put them on the other side, like on the picture. They fit perfectly where I put them now, and I like both the looks and the functionality of it smile.gif

Cheers!
