[Official] Corsair Graphite Club [780T/760T/730T/600T/380T/230T] - Page 838

post #8371 of 18196
Just a quick update on my build, not the finished product as I am still waiting on some pieces so I can clean up my piping. I never would have known it to be so hard to find 0.5mm flat steal in NSW, Australia.. as soon as I find a supplier I will flip/invert my mainboard tray and re-do the back panel but for now this is how it is going to look... Well kind of, will post a pic once I have straightened my pipes (the one at the back) and put red coolant through it.. Yes I know my GPU is no in the photo but I did not want to risk the chance of water on it.. Sill doing pre-treatment of the tubing.

Anyway this is what my 600T looks like for now. biggrin.gif very happy with the outcome so far, Lots more to do though wheee.gif



Update: I will be putting a waterblock on my GTX690, just waiting for Bitspower to pull their finger out so I can special order a VG-NGTX690 Acrylic Top should look rather sweet with that clear acrylic top. thumb.gif So far have been told that it could be up to 6-8 wks.. yet again BP are dragging their feet, they must be waiting for the release of the GTX7xx LOL

That looks completely bonkers... In a really great way. I love the look of the 200mm fans just taking up all the space. Makes the mobo looks so cozied up.


Great job thumb.gif

P.S. It really is gonna be interesting to see how you pull off getting the panels on that thing, can't wait to see how this rig turns out!

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?

I would make it intake to blow cool air on your video card(s). You might want to think about a dust filter though:

@ kcamrn
Well, in my opinion you wanna exhaust the fans on your rad and also have the rear 120mm exhaust. just concentrate on getting enough air into your case which your rad fans and rear fan expel out of your case. So, I'd say you were right from the beginning. Just keep in mind that spot cooling your graphics card with an internal 120mm fan or similar will improve your temps. You can also use the mesh side window if you don't want to mount fans inside your case. That will displace the hot air that the card blows into the case ( i'm assuming dual fans aren't blower types ) and the exhaust fans will do the trick. probably get a strong front fan as well. But that's coming from my experience with my setup so it might not all apply to you. thumb.gif
a very rough example tongue.gif

I really appreciate the help!

This is my first build and i absolutely love my 600t got a 3570k, ASUS GTX 660, Asrock Z77 extreme 4, Corsair H60 all doing really well.

I also added some new components to my PC today and sprayed some of my case components white as well the HDD cage and Pci-e covers and waiting on a White ATX extension and another GTX660 which will come in the next week or so. The LEDs look bright as hell in these pics but its quite subtle in person.

Components i added:

NZXT FS-200 LED Rifle Bearing Fan Blue

BitFenix Alchemy Connect 60cm Blue LED Strip

BitFenix Spectre White 120mm PWM Non-LED Fan

BitFenix Recon Fan and LED Controller White

Nothing good to say about this product terrible all round but will leave in for looks but nothing else

Since you already have plenty of exhaust, you should make it intake.

Also, if you don't use the 5.25" drive cage, you can remove it and mount another 200mm on the front. Look at the previous page for Car17 and Devious Dog's explanation on how to do it. Really simple.

Here's some updates on my rig. Nothing massively different since the last post but got my 16gb 2400mhz Kingston Beast RAMs, my FC9 fan controller and my belowed Xonar Essence STX.







I'm most likely just gonna swap the white LED fan I have in the front to a black one I bought a few days ago, haven't really decided yet as it is gonna be quite dark in the case. However, the red LED's on the h100i and the mobo aswell as the fan controller looks absolutely amazing in the dark. The black Beasts fit in very nicely in the overall black and red theme I think. So the question for me is, do I want to light up the case any more or should I stay with the more subtle approach. I'll have to try out a few configurations and just see what I end up with! biggrin.gif

Also the pics really don't do the rig justice, it looks absolutely terrific when it's dark.
