I'm sure you could adapt something it would be a pain though... It is primarily set up for 240mm rads, someone correct me if I'm wrong. For all the hastle and mucking around I would use either a h100 or a h100i.

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.


Can you link to where you found that the SP won't fit up top in the 600T? It's 25mm thick, and so are 120mm fan that fit up top. Also, the H100 fits up top and it's 27mm thick. I haven't tried it myself, but it seems anything 27mm and under should fit.

Performance is good on the SP, but you should know that performance comparisons between 120mm and 200mm are not really valid since there are so many to chose from. There are some pretty crappy fans out there, and some really good ones. If you're thinking about 120mm fans up top, there are plenty to chose from in the 120mm case fan market. You don't need high static pressure fans if you're not going to be using a rad up top, and that really opens up your choices.

I finally bought a Spectre Pro, I went LED-less for now, but I might replace it with one with LEDs and use this one for a different build. Anyway, Yes, it does fit with the HDD cages. I know this has been asked a million times, and there were pics of it installed but I haven't seen any with both cages too. If someone has put one up, then thats great, here is mine.

HI folks,

I have an important - and rather noobish, sorry - question about fans.

Since I mounted my SLI in my 600T SE I need some serious cooling, my temps are too high. So. I want to mount some additional fans here and there, on the front and bottom, and I think I'l mount the Mash panel to add 4x120mm fans... But I have no idea on how to power them.

I have maybe one or two 4-pin connectors left on my motheboard, and one or two Molex plug left on my PSU. No PCI-E connector left because of the SLI so no adapter. Obviously not enough connectors if I want to plug each fan individually.
I imagine there is a way to mount the fans in series or parallel?

How can I mount these 4 fans? Ideally 6 fans? I'm interested in the Scythe Gentel Typhoon for example, as I understand they come with 3/4 pin connector but no Molex - how can I do? Do I need adapters?

Please help guys... I really need to do it, my PC is very hot. Thanks a lot.

If the fan controller on the case is already occupied, get another fan controller for one of the 5.25" bays and use that?

Thanks for that pic Sakura. I need the 2 cages and had my doubts. biggrin.gif

I need to power them, not control them. Or at least I need to power them first. What's a 5'25" fan controller and how is it powered?
post #7958 of 18197
well, a fan controller will power them. something like this, http://www.nzxt.com/new/products/fan_control/sentry_mesh. It will go in the optical bay and you can connect fans to it thumb.gif
post #7959 of 18197
^^what he said, alternatively you can also mount a fan (120mm) right underneath the 5.25" drive bay (unless you have your HDD cages there) to push more air onto the card. (see pic to see the fan i'm talking about) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
900x900px-LL-93c69e19_IMG_1391.jpeg

i'd recommend this http://www.lamptron.com/products/view/Fan_Controller_FC6

plugs up to a 4pin molex, and then you can hook your fans to the controller for power and speed control along with temp sensors thumb.gif

side note..i get more watercooling accessories in tomorrow and saturday...i'm giddy with excitement! pics to come!

That's really a waste of money, as the BitFenix Spectre Pro 200mm Fan LEDs have an additional two wires which control the LEDs on the fan. If you want to disable the LEDs all you need do is remove the connector on the end of the LED control wires which breakes the curcuit and the LEDs are off. This is a really cool design on the BitFenix Spectre Pro LED Fans which is designed to be used with their Fan and Light controller, they really took the time to design the Fan.

So I would recommend sending the little bit extra now and get the LED version and disable the LEDs if its too bright, no modding envolved. thumb.gif

I was not aware of this when purchasing all mine, I thought you and others might be interested as I dont think its stated on the packaging that you can do this with the Pro LED fans.
