I made a picture with my smartphone, you can see the wire and the actual LED in the small mounting hole:

Though its hard to see on the picture.
What you possibly could do is send a PM to Xbournex. (http://www.overclock.net/u/251436/xbournex)
He's a Bitfenix community representative on this forum. No doubt he could give you an answer.
Good luck thumb.gif

Thanks for the photo, but I see what you mean. They do look like 5mm LEDs in a moulded insert, but very hard to be 100%. I have sent a PM to Xbournex but I have already PM loads of other people with no response.

Thanks, I need to order these fans so I can start my build log and start doing the work over Christmas.

UPDATE: Xbournex got back to me uber quick, LEDs do come out. Just placed an order for 8.

I have tried suppliers but they can't open the box to check.. mad.gif and I need to buy 8 of these, for my next project.

Have you tried emailing BitFenix themselves? You can call, tweet or email them i believe.

Just picked up one of these cases for $80! I'll post pics once I receive it. I was suppose to get a Storm Sniper case, but they had an inventory error so got this one for the same price!

I think the opposite is true :/ I had both fans side by side out of the case, and the Bit Fenix was much quieter. It also had less visible space between the blades...

On a different note, I'm going to be going with a Phobya 200 mm rad. What is the best fan for high static pressure in the 200 mm form? Do they even make a 200 mm fan that is optimized for static pressure?

Hey everyone. Ive been getting nipped by the upgrade bug lately. and apart from a new cpu and/or gpu I have been looking at the 600t white. Now, I absolutely love my cm690II advanced but this corsair case is really starting to grow on me. I had a few questions though.

First, How is this cases airflow?
Is there anyway to get a coule 140mm/120mm fans on the front to replace the 200mm without too much modification?
I know that the USB3.0 on the front is set up as a pass through. Is there any news of corsair changing this to a standard usb 3.0 mobo header? Or will I have to get an adapter? It's one of the pet peves I have with this case.

You will need to purchase a USB 3.0 mobo header to dual USB 3.0.

One thing you can do is flip your PSU upside down and use the PSU fan to pull air out of your case, this would really assist in the over air flow in the bottom back of your case. But of course you should ensure you have a case setup with positive pressure otherwise it will start to fill with dust.

Bitfenix fans are much better quality than the stock Corsair ones.

Hello. Thought I'd add a few crappy shots of my rig. Virtu MVP gaming through Thunderbolt is running flawlessly so far.

Yeah, I don't think I'd replace a stock Corsair fan with that model either. It may be a slight improvement, but not enough to justify the replacement (imo). I'd go with the Pro, or something completely different. Eventually I'll put my modified NZXT fan back into my 600T. It's a far better fan than even the Pro, and I have installed double the number of LEDs so it's also way brighter.

I don't have a dremel and really don't want to buy one if I don't have too.

You could use a good pair of side cutters. One guy said he used a hacksaw blade. But really, a roto tool and a set of cutting discs only cost about $30. Considering how much the case is, I think it's worth the purchase.

There are no HDD cages in my case.

Why not check with your local hardware store and see if they have some spacers you could put the screws through? And pick up some longer screws while you're there.

Yeah, I think installing actual long bolts with nuts will do the trick. I modified my ICY DOCK MB994SP-4SB-1 4x 2.5" SSD/HD in 1x 5.25" Bay at work, and was gonna pick up some likely mounting hardware to bring home, but I got busy, then had to deal with my supervisor trying to fire one of my people >frown.gif
Tomorrow isn't looking much better...
