What I am currently fitting in is
2x Phobya Xtreme 400mm Radiator
8x BitFenix Spectre Pro 200mm Fan - White LED (But changing the LEDs to a darker RED LED waterclear 5mm 12000mcd)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Making room to fit my fan and radiator mounts


Fan and radiator mounts installed


Radiators installed Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Fans mounted.

Mainboard tray to be modified and installed hopefully tonight or tomorrow night, but if all goes to plan it should be up and running by the weekend. Such a shame that pccasegear.com are unable to secure any parts from Bitspower, this is really killing me and my build.. If anyone knows of a GOOD supplier in Australia (NSW) let me know (PM me), also just got my shipment of MDPC cable sleeve so I am going to be very busy.. thumb.gif

Bravo bravo applaud.gif

I love the 400 in the front, but another up top, that is insane!! Hope you are running quadfire 7970s to put them babies to good use. (jk I know you are using a matx board lol) Very interested in seeing what you are going to do about covering everything back up. I can recommend this modders mesh if you wanna use something with low resistance and easy to bend/very pliable. I have used it for two different spots. One to cover the 6 door fans and to keep the Decmi Filter from touching the fans. And to replace the horrid mesh on the top removable panel. Only thing that sucks about the mesh is that it creates some noise when very close to the fans, but the Decmi filter dampens the sound nicely

EDIT: If for some reason you decide to get rid of one of those beautiful radiators, I will take one off your hands tongue.gif

Well I helped a couple people out with the 400 radiator in the front as I had already done the research on this and it is an awesome mod for the Corsair 600 with very little major modding. I had to order both of these radiators from the US but they worked out not bad from FrozenCPU, however they sent me a Bitspower D5 Dual mod top with damaged threads and cant get warranty. madsmiley.png. so not impressed with them $100 bucks is a lot. will look into the mesh, cheers for the info.


Oh, no need to worry about the magnets. My drives are all SSD, and our SAN boxes at work by EMC and also HP all use Rare Earth magnets for there front covers which are Uber close to the spinning discs..

As for the GPU cards, I will be getting another GTX690... or if the GTX7xx series comes out before I can organise a waterblock I will be run these SLI cards in dual.. so a Quad setup only using two cards.. hence why the mATX should be okay.. especially when I am willing to watercool my GPUs.

Okay.. will do a Build Log, nothing hard so far in what I have done. But getting all the covers to come back together will be fun, I still want it to look like a Corsair 600 as that was my man objective.. aswell as to squeeze 2x 400's into this case to prove that it can be done and all of those people that say a 600 is no good for watercool can look and eat their words.. thumbsupsmiley.png

Mostly telling Gyrael to check Dark Cyde's build on the first page for a good example of well done CCFL usage. Pay particular attention to how he placed them without having them in your face. Click on his sig picture for a better look. You can click on my sig for a look at how LED strips can come out. I'm using NZXT Strips that come with a little controller for on/off and brightness control. Also, I was the guy who replaced my Spectre Pro with my NZXT because the latter moves a lot more air and I have it modded with eight LEDs so it looks better as well. However, the Spectre Pro is a great fan for having low noise but still performing well. I know the NZXT is listed at 166 cfm while the SP is listed at 140 something, but you can sure tell the difference when you stick your hand in there. At about an inch away, the NZXT fan will actually suck the front dust cover closed. Just remember, if you use an NZXT it's 30mm thick so you either have to move the drive cages or mod them while the SP fan, at 25mm thick, will fit without modding.

Yeah, I was actually looking into cold cathodes because I don't like the "dotted" look of LED sleeves. I love Darkcyde's lighting. I also saw someone do it with white ones. Do you have any recommendations as to which CCFLs to get?

Edit: Also, you said the NZXT's screw holes didn't align, yeah? Because if I'm making that up I might go for that instead. As I said I just don't like having to mount fans that don't normally fit.

With the rarity of silver cases these days this was my next upgrade from my old Antec Super Lanboy. Which lasted well past its prime. Poor thing just isn't cut out for SLI anymore.

2500K@4.8, SLI GTX460s@980/2340, 16gb 1600Cas7 G.Skill.

I see you have those new Enermax fans. I was coming in here to ask if anyone had tried them. How are they? Can you compare them to others? Also, where did you get that white one?

My other question was this: I saw some people with horror stories about their CCFL's inverters bursting into flames. What's the deal with this? I was planning on getting Corsair fans and getting my lighting from CCFLs and my BitFenix SP in the front, but this is an actual possibility I'd have to just get some LED fans, I think.

Um they are pretty much on par with these CoolerMaster fans. But id say the enemax are better looking but pull slight less air.

The white one is from here. (they used to have the red/black twister's as well but no more.

Maybe Darkcyde can help you out with the CCFLs. The ones he picked look awesome and the ballast seems to have lasted. I would think that if you pay for a quality ballast you shouldn't have any fire problems.

On my case, the original Graphite 600T, the front 200mm fan was mounted with a bracket, not with actual fan screw holes. So, I don't know if they would line up in one of the newer cases or not (the newer cases don't use the bracket). The Spectre Pro fan lines up perfectly though.

For me, since I left the lower drive cage at the front (modded by cutting the "curl" off the front edge of the cage) it actually holds the bottom of the fan against the case, and the top two screw holes lined up with two holes in the mesh.

You can see it installed below.

^ nicely done! thumb.gif

Is there any list of the directly compatible fans for the front bracket?
also, how can I join the club?


here's my build, stock black 600t (solid panel) *not shown

btw, I have heard people mention that they have tested temps with the power supply upside down and rightside up and they got zero difference. Personally, I just don't see any point in drawing warm case air into the supply, and besides if it actually makes zero difference to temps, then why mount it upside down?

How do you like the Impala? I picked up a new car last week myself...

My shop heater went out so I haven't been able to work in there until I get it fixed (supposed to be this week.) Hopefully, I'll have some updates on Yin and Yang early next week. I've been doing a few things like sleeving and getting templates ready for the metal work, but nothing real substantial...

In the meantime, I've been sketching some workups for my old 600t. I think I am going to turn it into a watercooled CAD rig for my shop...(once the D@#!$ heater is fixed!)

As for the PSU..it wouldn't matter in the case temp-wise whichever way it is mounted, but I would rather run it pulling cool air from the outside (especially since it's filtered)...but that is just my preference.
