He never did but I have done the mod. You need to take off the actual front plastic piece, then you need a drill but about the same size as the rivets and take out all the rivets along the top and the front of the case. Once the rivets are removed the cage will come right off. If you ever need to put the drive bay back in it would be very simple with a rivet gun or a nut and bolt.

I absolutely agree. That's why when I attempted mine, I had the slim fans pushing/pulling each other and the regular sized pushing/pulling each other.

I never did one as I thought it was too straight forward. Car17 is correct, just the rivets on the front of the case aswell as a couple on the mainboard tray where the drive cage is, this should take you only about 15 minutes with a 1/8 drill bit and a drill. The good thing about this mod is you can always put it back with a rivet gun.

I no longer have a factory front or mainboard tray, Car17 might be able to assist you further.thumb.gif.

Thank you! That sounds easy enough. I'll be doing this mod as soon as I figure out how to hook up my bluray drive externally.

Hy guys

I am looking at cutting the grid at the front 200 and between H100.
I was wondering how much additional airflow you get? I can imagine it's a fair bit quieter but is it with cutting the case up?

It's worth it. Im using the two 200mm stock fans and they cool the case quite adequately for me. Im buying the bitfenix pro 200mm when they are available in my country but as for now, the stock fans actually do good... for me at least
post #8370 of 18217
Could use a little help here, I'm new.

Just bought a 600t and an h100, and I removed the top 200mm fan and plan on mounting it to the mesh side panel with zip ties.

Before I actually mount it on, should it be an exhaust or an intake?

Front 200mm is intake.
Top 2 120mm fans are exhaust
Back 120 is exhaust.

I have an Evga 660ti FTW Signature 2 card with dual fans. I don't really understand the airflow from graphics cards, which is why I don't know if I need to suck air off the card or blow cold air onto it. Any help would be much appreciated.


I also have 2 more 200mm fans and another 120mm. Are there any other creative places I could mount the fans to make my rig even colder?
