Is there a guide on this? I've seen some sort of DIY kit on Amazon, but it said it involved removing the ends and playing with the wires, so I got scared.

Heres a good place to start. A ton of info can be found there and if you have any extra questions ask there. Its really nice being able to do your own cables. Cant wait til I get a decent camera to take some pics when I am finally finished.

Thanks for the link. I'll have to check that out.

This is a weird question,but I plan on picking up a 600t sooner or later, because I love the way they look.

I know its possible to mount a H100 on top of the case, or just two 120mm fans, but would it be possible to mount an H50//H60 in the back top 120mm place with a 2nd 120mm fan beside it? I wouldnt need a H100, because I dont overclock much, so a 50/60 or even 80 would be fine im sure. and it would be cool to be able to have if pull into the case from the top, and then exaust right away through the rear fan.

I can't wait to get red sleeved extensions. I can't find them anywhere where I live, and Amazon's international shipping for them is ridiculous (like 40 bucks for 50 bucks worth of cables; they only offer some premium ass shipping on electronics).

Are you planning on replacing those stock fans? I also wanna get a second Bitfenix SP to mount a second front intake when I remove the drive cage.


I'm really kind of torn on replacing the stock fans. I really love the color of the 200mm in the front, but I might replace it in the future. Any suggestions? As for the stock fans on the h100, I probably should replace them since they're ridiculously loud. After looking at some benchmarks, it appears that the stock fans work almost as well as Corsair's HP fans, both the quiet and performance editions. So it seems that my only real options are more expensive fans. I just don't want to drop sixty bucks just to make my computer a little bit quieter, ya know? But maybe it would help a lot.

Yeah, I don't know any fans with the same hue as the stock Corsairs. As I said I really like the Bitfenix's white LED, so you could look at that.

I thought the H100 came with a three-speed knob?

K guys here it is. All the modding to my case is complete.................. For now haha

I bought a cross flow Radiator from XSPC. Not thinking of the extra 1 inch of tub that was on this kind of Rad. So since I did not want to return anything, and plus the way the cross flow let me sort the tubes for my case really was needed. Cutting the mesh was like eating pie! I think that's that a phrase? right?
So everything works great The only thing I could see myself adding would be a Louvered grill for the rad but I could not find any that I liked. So any suggestions would be greatly help full. I like how it turned out from just going blind into it. I was able to use the rest of my U Channel molding that I bought for my window that I made for this case. I purchased it on eBay, and Lowes has the acrylic window for any of you that were wondering.













Hope you all enjoi let me know if you have any comments!!!

Like always, I have to thank Devious Dog!

I'll definitely look into the bitfenix. Do they move more air than the stock Corsair fan?

The H100 has a three speed control on the waterblock. The fans aren't too loud on the lowest and medium settings, but they are absolutely insane on the highest setting. It seriously sounds like a jet engine. I had no clue 120mm fans could even be that loud. I've heard replacing them helps with the noise, but not much with the cooling (maybe like 5 degrees cooler) unless you spend some serious money on really good fans. But don't take my word on it because I haven't actually done it.

Wow, it's impressive how streamlined you made that radiator look on the top. Really nice job!

Yeah, they definitely move more air than the stock. Just remember that the LED is straight up white; I think it goes really nice with the case.

That's strange. I had never heard of them being so loud. Have you turning them down a notch with the fan controller?

Also, 5 degrees sounds real good to me. What fans would get you that difference?

Car17, have you sleeved your PSU yourself or did you buy a upgrade kit? Also did you remove the hard drive bays and the 5.25" bays? What size is that radiator, because it fits perfectly! You have a very nice rig there!
