I'll be changing them with Corsair AF 120mm's in a couple of days though, purely for aesthetics tongue.gif

Thanks a lot.

Yes, I did mean at the top. The top 200mm (exhaust) fan. I intend to replace the bottom (intake) stock 200mm fan with a Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm (I'm not a modder so I need a config working without having to drill holes / cut / solder / etc.). So yes, I was talking about the TOP fan. so 2 x 120mm fans will provide better exhaust than the stock 200mm? Cool.

Any advice? I was thinking of Bifenix Spectre pro 120, or Corsair AF120 Performance, or Scythe GT AP-14 / AP-15. Which one would be the best? Any other recommendations? Something with good performance or if possible some good-performing fans with aestethics / colors matching the case (600T SE, white).

Aesthetic wise, its really personal preference. But many would agree that the Corsair AF's are one of prettiest fans on the market. I don't really need that much airflow in my case, so I'm just going for the Quiet Edition, which are super quiet. I don't know if it's optimal, but I'm thinking of having the top fans as intake too, and only have the rear 120mm fan as exhaust. I do this to create positive air pressure in my case to prevent dust build up, becasue my room is quite dusty and the case is on the floor. But yeah, I can't really speak of the Scythe fans, but I can recommend both the Spectre Pro's and Corsair AF's. Both overall good fans, especially if you're going for a more quiet rig as I am. If you want something performing better, you could go for the AF-120 Performance Edition, but I wouldn't personally get them (even if they're good), simply because I don't need the extra air moved compared to the Quiet Edition. It's all up to your case and the rest of your setup. If your case gets hot on the inside because of a GPU blowing the hot air inside of the case or something, you should consider the AF Performance Edition. If not, the Spectre Pro's or AF120 Quiet Edition would be my two recommendations.

Personally I'd just go with the Spectre Pro 120's on top. At least that's what I did. The reason is that I think it looks best in combination with the Spectre Pro 200 as an intake (which is what you're also planning on doing). It would give you a bit of a consistent theme, which would be reason enough for me to go with them.

The Corsair AF120 high performance does move a tiny bit more air than the Spectre Pro 120 (63.47 vs 56.22 CFM), but the Corsair is substantially louder (30 vs 18.9 dBA). 30 dBA would be too much for me personally, in which case I'd slow the fan down, but then it will probably move less air compared to the Spectre Pro (the Spectre Pro seems to have a better noise to CFM ratio so to speak).

Wouldn't know about the Scythe fans though.

Hello 600t Graphite Club !

I can't be a part of the club for now becauseI don't have a cam to take pics of my own 600t, but I have a question that someone here might be able to answer. With 4 120x25 fans monted on the mesh side panel, what is the clearance for an aftermarket heatsink ? I am strongly considering the Alpenfohn Matterhorn (not Pure) for its aesthetics and performance, but I don't want to end with it touching my side Noiseblockers :/

Also, another, more general question, as my 600t build will only be completed in 2014 as a second rig, I am buying different components that do not suffer from time passing (basically, everything except HDD, RAM, CPU, mobo, graphics card, and perhaps PSU). The Matterhorn I'm talking about is one of these items I want to buy for the futur, but what about socket compatibility ? I'll probably go with intel sockets in the futur, but how likely is it for a new socket to be incompatible with the mounting kit provided with my heatsink ? Might just be a silly question but I'm wondering.

Thanks for any bit of help anyone could provide smile.gif.

Have a nice day,

It depends on what you want from your case. Many people believe positive pressure is more desirable in a case than having lots of exhaust. This requires more intake air pressure than exhaust, causing air to flow out of all the vents, seams and holes in the case. This prevents dust from entering anywhere except where the intake fans are located.

In that case you want to make sure your intake fans are not overpowered by your exhaust fans. If you're happy with a negative pressure case you can make the exhaust fans more powerful. The best way is to use an after market fan controller to control the fans individually, allowing you to adjust them for positive pressure or negative pressure inside the case.

Thanks.

The only intake fan I have so far is the bottom Stock 200mm to be replaced with a Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm.
I'm not really interested in buying a fan controller for just two 120mm fans.
