Then I think I see 2 open slots.

Sabertooth has an extra fan opening for the TUF armor or whatever it is. Considered doing it but the sound card is in the way. Debating on whether or not I want to try the 50mm fan.

Mergatroid and BiuS, was the Spectre any bigger than the Corsair fans?

Don't know, I haven't used the Corsair fan in ages. If you have the newer case though, with the screws and not the bracket for mounting the 200mm fan, it should just screw in without any problems. It has multiple mounting holes.

Thanks for the info mergatroid, i just sent my spectre back fro a replacement it was really running at low speed and i think was defective. And have you tried other 200mm fan like coolermaster mega flow or from xigametk?

Sorry, I've only tried the stock fan, NZXT fan and the Spectre Pro.

Looks nice man! jelly of your 670's biggrin.gif
haha ok smile.gif what do you mean about your soundcard? have you run out of slots?

The stock fans are better. The aftermarket Corsair fans may be quieter though.

What are those black things in the middle of the cables? Are those hard drive connectors? OK, I think they are. Lol, I couldn't figure out why the white cables had big black things in the middle, but of course they would be hard drive power connectors. Looks nice man. What do you think of the quality of the sleeving? I was thinking about getting some, but I'm still not convinced it's worth the price. The AX750 has all black cables, and I have cable managed them so you almost can't see them (most of them). It uses the same cables as the AX850 you have.

I'm really on the fence concerning sleeved cables. I have seen some rigs where the cables really add to the look, especially if the same colour lighting is installed, and maybe a same coloured rad and/or some other parts the same colour.

I just love that motherboard to pieces. Wish I had of bought one instead of waiting for a Black Friday sale on the ASUS board I bought. I like my board OK though, but I really like that Sabertooth board.

Excellent deal on a Graphite 600T, with mesh and window plus a Demciflex filter for $100.

Tests Update!

2-Scythe SY1212SL12mm x 120mm cooling fan were added to the cycle and installed in the bottom of the Radiator and here the results:

1st Test: I maintain the fans in the INTAKE config and get 32C at the CPU and 38C in the MoBo.

2nd Test: I change the fans in the EXHAUST config and get 31C at the CPU and 37C in the MoBo

The difference was only of 1C degree under in the EXHAUST config, relatively the same for the the INTAKE.
I resolved to use the INTAKE for the hi-end look!

Yeah they are sata power connectors which is powering my optical drive.

Quality i think is very good but then again i havent used any other sleeved cables so wouldnt know the difference. They are expensive but worth it imo. Yeah I think they really add to the aesthetics of the case. Ive got blue led lighting which looks nice with the white cables i think as it almost makes them glow. I do plan to get this ram aswell http://www.ebuyer.com/387427-corsair-16gb-2x8gb-dominator-platinum-memory-kit-cmd16gx3m2a1600c9 which i think will look nice and also a h100.

That's about average. I have heard people who have done this test report anywhere from 1 to 3c. One guy claimed 5c. I suppose it depends some on the case and mounting locations and such. Just note though, you don't have to use intake to keep your fans up top. You can use exhaust/pull. I have read an article with some tests where the fellow said overall push or pull doesn't make all that much difference. He thought that the push fans did better at low RPM, and pull did better at higher RPM but again, the differences are so low that I wouldn't be concerned about using fans as pull only. Also note you may have gotten different results if you have a video card that exhausts into the case, and you were running something like Furmark while you were doing the CPU temp tests. Also note, that it seems the temps you are giving are idle temps, which are not very important overall. You should have performed the tests under load, not idling.

If you want an honest test to show the actual difference, then during the test you should run Furmark to get your video card good and hot, and Intel Burn Test to get your CPU nice and hot. Then you'll see the actual difference between intake and exhaust.

Here's the article:

http://martinsliquidlab.i4memory.com/Radiator-Fan-Orientation-And-Shroud-Testing-Review.html

The last chart shows 25mm fans pull vs push with a shroud and without.

That's pretty sweet RAM. I have no idea what I would do with 16GB though.

Yeah it does look nice and you can even change the led lightbar to different colours. I do quite a bit of VM work and normally use at least 10gb a session.

Hi there...

Need some info regarding the 600T. Would it be big enough to have a fully water cooled 3930k and gtx690 loop? I wouldn't mind slight modding and I know it can fit a 360 rad in the roof and a 200 in the front push pull but is that enough to cool these components?!

Just a lot of money to spend want to make sure it all fits.

Thanks in advance.

Hi

I was planning to go GTX670 and i5 2500k on the same kind of watercooling setup you just mentioned. I would say it would be on the edge of too little cooling, if you're going to do it with a 690 and 3930k
