Earlier, I replaced the stock fans with a 120mm Bitfenix Spectre, and a 200mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro. Some days ago I added a 120mm fan right onto my 7950 crossfire setup, this all helped a little getting temps lower but i am not satisfied yet.

Any suggestions? People with crossfire setups, how did you manage? Besides changing to watercooling?

i'm assuming you're using the mesh side panel with mounted 120mms and not the window?

Has anyone mounted a bottom fan? I think this is one thing that case is missing.

I didn't "mount" one but I did put a 120mm fan standing one the hard drive cage facing the mobo. Mobo temp went from 40c to 32c

I have one where the PSU-side drive cage mount used to be.

 

1000

 

It's a Rosewill ball bearing 120mm.  I highly recommend a ball bearing fan for horizontal mounting.

You can add a 120mm fan above your hard drive cage pointing at your video cards. You can install a better 200mm fan at the front (the Bitfenix Spectre Pro is popular, but there are better fans such as the 166CFM NZXT fan, but it may require drilling mounting holes). I would recommend a better exhaust fan as well as intake fans. Positive pressure is nice to reduce dust issues, but just increasing the pressure inside the case won't necessarily increase your air flow, or reduce your temps. If you're into modding you can also add a 120mm fan at the bottom of the case, but you'll have to cut a hole for it.

Hey how is your case doing with your Bitfenix 200mm Spectre Pro? My cousin is getting this fan but he has a HAF 912 case. He's really looking forward to lower temps with that fan and hope he wont be disappointed. He bought a Cooler Master Megaflow 200 but it doesn't really move as much air as the stock 200mm Corsair fan in the 600T.

Its hard to say to be honest. I do like the Bitfenix Spectre Pro fans, but the problem for me is, that the Corsair 600T case itself isn't really known for great airflow, hard to give an 100% accurate opinion on the fan because of that.

It sure pushes more air than the stock Corsair ones, they look awesome and also is dead silent whereas the Corsair fans were kind of whiny on high RPM.

I see no reason to not purchase them. Good luck thumb.gif

I happen to have a close up:



That was when I also had a fan mounted to the hard drive cage, but I have since removed it as it was just causing my hard drive and SSDs to get dirty. I cut a hexagonal hole with a Dremel, and mounted a dust filter on the bottom, then the fan inside and another filter (the top filter in the picture has the fine mesh removed).

SAM_0025.jpg

That shows the hole. You may want to let the front of the case overhang the surface it's sitting on so it gets a good source for air, or remove the rear dust cover that covers the power supply intake. I have noticed that filter is never dirty, so I don't think it's filtering anything.

I'm letting my case overhang at the front. If you come up with a better idea, let me know. For now the overhang is allowing lots of intake space.
