1. How is the dust filtering? I plan on getting the silver with the window, so my only intake would be the front. I notice the optical bays have a filtered mesh, do they need to be cleaned regularly. Im a smoker btw, so dust filtering is kind of a big deal to me lol. I currently own a antec 300 illusion and it does a fine job of this, i really dont want to downgrade in this aspect. Do they sell kits to put rubber seals around all of the doors to make a proper seal (obviously i guess i could do this myself too).

2. I am going to put a radiator in the top, havent decided if i wanna stick with H100i or wait until the piece from swiftech comes out. But im worried about using push/pull on this case, does this basically depend on VRM heatsinks on your motherboard? If this is the case i will buy a motherboard with no upper VRM heatsinks.

3. I plan on removing the HDD cages completely (as well as the piece of plastic they mount to). Does corsair offer atttachments to mount drives in the optical bay slots? If not i know of a couple different types of adapters but what do you think would be best:

http://www.amazon.com/ORICO-AC52535-1S-Full-Aluminum-5-25/dp/B005OJFASY/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1359753243&sr=8-6&keywords=%225+25%22+to+%222+5%22+adapter
(these come in black or silver as well)

OR

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817996019

This comes with a white led fan that matches the front fan but then i would have to worry about cleaning the optical bay drive covers more often.

We have both a 650D and s 600T in our home, and they are about the same for dust. I find the front filters only let the finest dust through, allowing me to go longer between cleanings.
If you make the case positive pressure (more intake than exhaust) you won't have to worry about rubber seals. You would have to work out the details, involving replacing the fans on either the 600T or the 650D. If you're really worried, there are filters available for this case:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14346/ffi-88/DEMCiflex_Corsair_600T_Magnetic_Dust_Fan_Filter_Set_-_4_Piece.html

Note, that push/pull really doesn't make much difference on the H100. You're talking only one or two degrees difference. As for the HDD racks, they will fit in the optical drive bays. If you leave the bottom three optical drive bays empty, you can slide a hard drive rack right in and mount hard drives or SSDs in them.

The biggest difference I find between the 650D and the 600T is that the 600T has more room on the right side for cable management due to the convex doors, and there are two sets of mesh on the top that you need to move air through in the 600T, whereas the 650D only has one set of mesh on the top which may make airflow in that case slightly better in a stock configuration.

Note, you can mod the 600T by cutting out the inside top mesh (just leaving enough side material for mounting rads or fans). Some people also cut out the front inside mesh to allow better intake air flow.

Wow, had to edit this post about four times due to typos. Talk about slack.

What kind of fans are those that you have on your H100? (I assume that's what it is). I like the look. How is it compared to gentle typhoon AP-15 or cougar vortex CF-V12HP? Trying to figure out what mod to do with my case to get push/pull and look nice

Hi Guys,

Recently I've been interested in buying a corsair 600t case with the mesh side window, the black edition obviously. Anyway, I have never done a watercooling system before, but I'm doing my research and Id like to put together a beginners custom loop in one of these things. I am not looking for super performance but I'd like a solid performing 240mm rad with a set of fans, that'd be fine for my own needs.

I've read a couple reviews that say this case is well suited and some that say ( TTL ) this case isn't very suitable for water cooling. Basically, I'd start with just my CPU, a 240mm rad and probably a dual bay res/ pump combo. This case fulfills everything I need it to do, and I'm just curious as to how it would perform with a top mounted 240mm rad. I'm obviously not talking about modding the case as at this stage I'm not comfortable cutting into my pc case, I like the idea though, that should I want a better setup in the future, I would be able to mod the 600t to suit my needs also ( I've seen quite a few people do this to support bigger and thicker rads ) .

As far as mid towers go, I see that stock water cooling is usually quite average, and I think was I going to go all out and crazy on a water loop, I'd invest in a full tower. I'm somewhat of a novice when it comes to building pcs and I will be doing extensive research and seeking help from an experienced friend when installing my watercooling kit. I was just curious to hear it straight out from people who have fitted a 240mm rad with a custom loop in the case, and not had to mod the case to fit the kit into case.

Thanks so much for reading guys!

Regards,
Curt

I just ordered myself the acrylic side panel from mnpc, time to get serious on my sleeving endeavor. I have a bit to get that part finally in the done section of my build.

I'd like to get the Corsair fans some time in the futures. Would it be best for the top of the case to buy the AP or SP variants? Because there is a mesh below and above as well.

they are some NZXT ones, i got them with my old case smile.gif I think they are just standard blue LED fans, and unfortunately I havent done any comparison to other fans. All I can tell you is that they do a great job on cooling the liquid in my H100 smile.gif

Before you go believing people who say this case isn't suitable for water cooling, you should look through the thread. Instead of just believing people who may never have tried this case, look and see with your own eyes.

Here is a tiny little sample of what this case is capable of:

http://www.overclock.net/t/831636/official-corsair-graphite-club/8210#post_19187824

This is, in fact (IMO of course) one of the premiere enthusiast cases on the market today. It may be a "mid tower", but it's much wider than most mid towers and the movable hard drive cages add even more space by simply removing one or both of them, or changing their location.

For the size of this case, you can squeeze in quite a bit. Of course, in a full tower you could squeeze in more, and there are cases even larger than a full tower that can contain even larger water builds with even more rads. So, one has to ask, what do they mean by "unsuitable"? Look at the pictures and decide for yourself.
