OK so as for my cooling issue, I thought that maybe replacing the two stock 200mm Corsair with better ones (delievering greater airflow) would be an improvement as well, what do you think? Is it worth it or insignificiant? And wjhat 200mm fans would you advise me?
Thanks

I think the bitfenix spectre pro fans 200mm are what everyone is getting for the 600T, I'm about to get 2 of them to replace the corsair ones.

alright here is my revised system Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Swiftech D5 655 vario
Bitfenix Mod Kit
Bitfenix 150mm res
PrimoChill white & clear tubing (went with clear to get the background an invisible effect)
Intel 180gb 520 SSD

Will replace front 2x200mm fans with spectre pro's and a corsair 120mm AF series fan for exhaust.

now how much would it hurt if i were to turn my fans around on my 200mm & 120mm rad to exhaust instead of intake? i want to create a positive pressure case cause i get a lot of dust coming into my case right now.

Anyways, here are the images for joining the club.
Sorry, I took them on my phone so the quality isn't that great redface.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Huh? How come two 200mm fans have different sizes? One is 140x25 and the other 200x24. How is it possible? Does the 140 still fit or not?

not if you want to mod it the case a bit to get them to fit, go with the 200x25mm fans and you'll be good.

Hehe, thanks mate.
My advice would be to buy a LARGE pack of thin black zip-ties (not the large ones) and be generous with tieing everything up. I used a good amount from my pack.
Don't be nervous bending the wires, my 24 pin and 6 pin cables are tighter than a rats arse. Can barely move them...
Start with the 24 pin cable and zip it to the midway loop between the rubber grommets, this will be your base guide for the rest of the wires...
Now what you want to do is remove the top drive-bay cover and unplug one of the fan ports depending on whether you're using 3 fans or the mesh side panel. If not then skip this step.
I then seperated the wires out into groups by the size and path they were going to be wired to, depending on that I zipped up the wires into bundles so they were easier to manage in segments.
I find this to be an impotant step because it helps to visualize how you're going to manage the wires. If they are all in a mess then it makes it very confusing...
I then decided which IO cables I was going to use. In my case I chose the USB3, USB2 and left the audio and 1394 cables... Ofcourse the front panel connector is compulsary...
I routed the USB3 cable along the top of the case (as seen in the image) and used the tension to wedge it around my radiator, both holding it in place and keeping it hidden from sight.
The USB2 cables I bent in a sharp S shape down to the bottom grommet. I zipped the top to the HDD bay to make sure it didn't drop down and also to prevent it from interfering with the side panel clips. I then zipped the rest to the 24 pin cable and passed it through to the motherboard...
The front panel connector is somewhat longer, so I pushed it into the recessed gap down the left side of the case and zipped it partially to the fan cable. This ensured some tension to keep it in place.
The rest of the cables I carefully zipped into a loop and tied them to the drive bays. This can be seen in the image.
Zip, zip, zip - if the cables are too long them bend them into a figure of 8 and tie them down. Not too tight otherwise you won't be able to manipulate the lengths if you have to.
I then rinsed and repeated with the rest of the cables, further tieing them to the 24 pin connector.
Hope this helped.

Also, one more tip. Move the drive cage down to the bottom if your PSU permits. This enables you to wire the Sata and power cables through the small hole in the tray. This helps to prevent any cables hanging down past the clear area where the side panel is visible. In my case, the wires were too short anyway so I killed two birds with one stone...
