Corsair should really make the logo in the middle a seperate peice that you can turn/snap on in any direction you want. kind of like how the PS2s logo turned so it would be straight if you had it standing up tongue.gif

As for the tubes they don't rotate as easily as the ones on the H100 so what you see on my picture is pretty much how it will look with the radiator mounted that way.


Haha no worries. It looks fine. I actually prefer the look to the left, but I might have to mount mine to the right. I just don't like how it hangs in front of my ram and my white sleeved mobo cable when I mount it to the right, but we'll see what I prefer once I actually get my unit.

I mean we wouldn't have gotten 600t cases if aesthetics didn't matter to us, right? biggrin.gif

Here is mine

Your dad is a legend just for owning that!! LOL

I love his side panel! This is EXACTLY what i want to do with mine, with the 2 x 120mm holes for fans to cool the GPU's

Did he cut the holes himself?

Both setups look fantastic!

I already bought the H100 used and the guy has lost his warranty, if I run into any problems, should I contact Corsair George? Got it for 60€ so it was a bargain...

I hope your skill level in painting or applying lacquer is at professional level, as doing any metallic / metal looking spray job requires years of experience especially with all the curves of the 600T front.
All I can suggest you do is look in other forums like spray painters and custom car spray jobs.

You also might look around at chrome spray paint as this is what most people used to accomplish a aluminum look, but either way this would be a massive job.. but would make for a interesting mod if you ever do it.

Don't forget you will need to wet rub all the case and parts down, you will then have to spray all the parts with a preparation spray so the spray paint will bond with the plastic. You will then need at least 2 coats of paint, min. Not cheap paint, but good automotive spray paint. All of this will easily cost the same cost of this case

That might help. I got mine for $50 used, and I immediately noticed the whining sound so I contacted Corsair and explained the situation and they replaced it with the H100i, no questions asked. They didn't ask for proof of purchase or anything during the RMA process...just where it was purchased and when (which I didn't know so I guessed). I even told the rep on the phone that I had no idea where and when it was purchased and he said not to worry, they would replace it anyway.

Moral of the story: Corsair is quickly becoming one of my favorite companies for customer service

That's how it's set up now. Push/exhaust:



Although now I have a piece covering the front hole. I just wish I could have found a board locally with the RAM mounted a little lower so I could have mounted the rad forward one position as I did in my previous build.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

My current build which I am still working on will ensure I have filters in front of my internal radiators aswell as where the air is being sucked in from. I'm just trying to point out that however you mount a radiator and fan setup in your box you should check it from time to time to ensure you dont have a large dust build up.

I was shocked, as I thought my radiator was perfectly clean and free from dust.. but as you can see that was not the case.

I still clean my case every few months, but I never have a problem with dust in my rad.

You could always use dye or a black marker to colour the cables. I've done that with fan cables, temp sensor cables and ever red SATA cables.

Your best bet is to talk to a custom painter who does airbrush artwork.

You would need to sand whichever parts you want to paint, and then do multiple layers of a silver spray paint that mstchs the colour you want. Wait for it to.dry between layers. If its the white 600t you won't need primer. Any plastic parts should be painted with paint made for plastic.

Personally I've never painted a case, but in sure there's tons of videos online of how to breakdown and paint a case. But it won't look the same as apple products since theirs isnt painted.

You could always strip the paint off the case altogether, and then try to give it a brushed aluminium finish.... but I have no idea how that's done. I assume a lot of sanding and polish tongue.gif

I figured this much as well, but on my black prodigy, it has a silver aluminum looking bezel and its just made of plastic? doh.gif I'm sure its possible right? Here's this pics:

Is it painted plastic? or is the plastic actually that colour?

Getting a brushes aluminium look with paint is going to be very hard. the plastic and metal parts probably wouldnt match. Like i said, you can try to strip the paint you have now with a good paint thinner,or better yet, gasket remover you can probably buy at autozone. tears through powder coating:P. theres also the old fashioned way, a lot of sanding tongue.gif which would be ok if you were to paint, but if you wanted to give the aluminum case a brushed metal look yourself, dont use sand paper to take off the paint.

IMO the best way to go about this would be too take off the current paint down to the pare aluminium, then do a DIY brushed aluminium finish. but theres no real way of knowing what the aluminium looks like under the paint, so its a risk just striping it.
