question. i ahve a 600t se & 1 corsair H60 p/p exhaust. i was going to get another h60, and was going to use the old one to cool my oc'd gtx 460 that i use for folding. problem is i dunno where to add the 2nd h60. i was thinking about modding the top of the case, and having it go through the top fan area in, then using push through exhaust.

any suggestions?

Joining the club. I bought a 600T Silver case and built it this week. Everything is new except for the CPU fan. While I love my old SuperTalent ATX gaming case, it simply isn't really suitable for my XFX Radeon HD 7950, cable management is impossible, and airflow in my old case sucks. This is the first time buying a case in nine years and I liked everything about the 600T. People complain about the airflow but like many people I plan to cut out a square in the top grill for more airflow as seen in a previous post.

For now I plan to move the hard drive cage next to the PSU and remove the pedestal. Also plan on getting two more Corsair AF120 fans for the front and two white LED strips. The color of the Thermaltake PSU and the Gigabyte mobo heat sinks closely match the color of the case by the way. The motherboard has a header for USB 3.0 and will be getting a SilverStone USB 3.0 adapter for it too.

You could have one H60 in the rear and one in the top. The H100 fits up top without any problems, so I think it would be quite easy to mount an H60 up top without any modding at all.

Why not get an H100 and use the 60 on the gpu?

i suppose i could. it's more of a finances thing :sadsmiley.gif. Since the h60 is in p/p then i could only install the h100 with pull through the top right? or i could go the other way, p/p through the top with rear pull on the h60. or maybe a rear push?

i'll set both as exhaust. if i can find an affordable one.

Good new and bad new, the good new is that im going to be a father at the age of 25 and the bad new is that this will be my last update for a long time mad.gif I was planing on going water cooling and already bought a few stuff but that wont happen this year.. So today i went to Micocenter to exchange and i bought a Cooler Master Mega Flow and a $4 open box NZXT black sleeved panel cables

http://microcenter.com/product/358167/118_Front_Panel_Combo_Cable_Set


This is how it will sit for a long time

Check out newegg, i saw in the Corsair Hydro club someone posted a huge deal on H100's like they were trying to clean house. they were selling it for 79.99

Finished up most of my liquid cooling. Only thing left is my gpu that i need to replace. I must have damaged it putting the waterblock on it. It sucks especially since it is my senior project and I can barely afford it. Also, I'm still unsure if I'm in the 600t club or not but I would like to be. But it came out great. Follow the build log here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1318077/build-log-my-first-liquid-cooling-project-600t-2500k-6870

Check out some pics!
