Thanks! I'm using two of these: http://www.moddiy.com/products/Expansion-Slot-Side-Fan-Mounting-Kit.html#.UOH5NHdew-U
The site has a lot of little doo-dads that I found helpful, at least in terms of mounting!
I also used a couple rubber grommets to space out the second fan over the pci power connectors.

I can't tell you how helpful it would be for your setup, I know the 6xx are really power efficient and don't run hot. In my case, I have two gtx 590s that would hit the low 90s in temps, and I had no way to mount side fans because I have mnpctechs acrylic door. After re-TIM-ing the cards and mounting those two 140s, I dropped my temps to the low to high 80s, with the gpu fan only hitting 70%!

I'm also using this http://www.microcenter.com/product/390969/Magnetic_Fan_Bridge_Mounting_Kit to mount the 120mm by the 5.25" bays. It's suspended from the roof, gives a clean look and the magnets come nowhere near the HDDs I have in the bays.

you could also try this http://www.legitreviews.com/article/2099/1/

lol I spent a lot of time looking for ways to mount fans in this case

Just ordered a black 600t, along with a rosewill silent night psu, and 2 200 mm bitfenix pro's. I will be modifying the top to accept a xspc rs360 rad, and add either a 240 or 120mm rad when I decide what I am going to do with the gpu. Haven't decided if I want to upgrade, or just water cool and overclock the **** out of the 6950 (bios is 6970). Once it shows up, I will take some pics of the changes.

Hello gentlemen,

I'd like to have your opinion on changing the fans in the Corsair Graphite 600T (white edition). I'm thinking of replacing the front intake with a 200mm Bitfenix Spectre pro (white LED), and the top exhaust with two 120mm Spectre pro's (also white LED). These fans appeal to me mostly because they should perform better than the stock 200mm fans while they would allow me to keep somewhat consistent with the style I had before (I really like how clean the stock Corsair fans look, and while they perform well enough in principle, I'd like to get a bit more cooling performance). Now, I read that the front intake can be replaced with the 200mm Bitfenix whilst keeping the drive bays in front (which I'd like). However, from what I've read, this 200mm won't fit up top as it is thicker than the one from Corsair. This is kind of too bad, as I like to keep a consistent style, but I think that the two 120's from the same series would look fine up there as well. I like the white LEDs because I like the inside of my case to be visible, but I don't like the IMO toy-like colors everywhere.

I'm a little worried about noise, but from what I've heard these fans are pretty quiet so it should not be that much of a problem. Generally people say two 120mm fans are louder but perform better than one 200mm, but with these fans it should be a bit different. The 120's are 18.9dB, and having two would result in around 24.9dB ((sound from one source + 20 * log(2)), where 2 is the number of sources in this case). The 200mm produces 27.5dB at full speed, so it would be louder than the two 120mm fans. However, the 200mm would perform better in terms of moving air (148.72 CFM versus 112.44 of the two 120mm fans combined). In any case, the result should be quieter than the Corsair stock fans (28.8dB each), and it would move quite a bit more air (only 92 CFM each for the Corsair fans).

Now, what do you guys think about these fans in such a configuration? Any other thoughts/suggestions? How much do you think this will help in terms of cooling my Asus 670's (their temps are fine but I just want that tiny bit better)? I'd like to be a bit sure before I spend fifty euros on a couple of fans wink.gif. Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts thumb.gif

BTW: I've got a Corsair H60 functioning as rear exhaust, in case you were wandering. See this post for some pics, and my sig for some specs.
