Took some new pics since switching to a BitFenix Specter Pro front fan, ditching the optical drive, and adding an Asus Xonar DGX. Also built a front panel audio headphone/mic jack PCI bracket.

You have a point. Honestly the case is SO good that it's hard to find much wrong with it, and the fan controller isn't AMAZING so it gets targeted a lot. The case is so sleek that the big round button seems out of place aesthetically to some people.

Personally, I don't really see a need for fan controllers unless you have more than three fans on your case. I don't even have mine plugged in. I prefer to let the computer turn up the fans on its own, as opposed to me turning the dial up and down all the time.

Maybe you can help me understand why you find the controller useful? Maybe you can convince me to plug mine in smile.gif

Welcome to all the new members.

Thanks for the welcome. I'm a big fan of your setup. What CCFLs are those?

Just for noise control, really. I have 4 fans plugged into it. If I leave my computer on overnight, or if I'm watching a movie or something like that I usually turn it down since the computer won't be under load. A lot of people say that the knob barely has any range but I can easily tell the noise level difference in each notch. And it definitely gets a lot quieter at the lowest setting. So yeah, I really like it. I also don't think the knob seems out of place since it's not too tall, but that's subjective.

Gyrael do you have the white edition or the normal 600T, because from what I have gathered the original has a worse fan controller. I have the white one and it works perfectly and DOES make a difference.

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 have to ask, why the 360mm + the 400mm rad for just CPU cooling? Are you planning on adding waterblocks to your GPU's ?

I have the white one and the fan controller doesn't work. I ordered a separate fan controller today.

I was actually looking to get that one for my previous case before I got the 600T.

So your 600T shipped with a broken fan controller? That sucks.
