Wouldn't be quite tall enough to reach from bottom of case to drive bays. Dimensions for 230mm Bitfenix fans are on their website here; 200mm also available.

I already looked at trying to squeeze a 230 into the front of the Corsair 600T, they would fit but you would need to chop off a good chunk of all that useless mounting holes to the left and right. If you rotated the fan 90 diagrees the fans would be separated by almost 3cm.. Fan blade length is 200mm but they could have made the body of the fan housing much smaller.

The 200mm Pro will fit in with almost 12mm on each side, so it is a nice easy fit and the fan blade length is 187mm over all.

I would highly recommend the 200mm Pro's thumb.gif

If you are interested I have a few pics of the 200mm installed in my current build Case Mod - Corsair 600T - Morpheus, as you will see.. this 600T body can take a lot if you are willing to Mod.

Better pics of my Silverbox:





That is a 230mm Spectre Pro installed in there - had a 200mm but changed my mind about the non-LED version. rolleyes.gif No cutting at all to fit, but it is tight against the bottom of the drive bays; needed to mount 1 upper screw loosely and then hold/force gently into position to install the other three.



LEDs visible in top are just laying in position right now - want to figure out best place to install. Thinking about installing strings between rad and fans so they shine through - they're from the Corsair Link kit & set to change color depending on temp. Might as well make it so I can see that if/when it happens! tongue.gif

Hello there, im about to start on my first gaming rig

So far i have:

Corsair 600T White Edition
Corsair Vengeance 8Gb (4x2)
Corsair HX850 PSU
Intel i5 3570K
EVGA GTX680 Superclocked 2GB
WD caviar Black 1TB
LiteOn 24x Optical Drive
Windows 7 Home Premium

Now i know im still missing motherboard and Cpu Cooling and im still researching on which i should buy, some feedback would be appreciated.

Also i really want the best airflow and temperatures that i can get out of my case, ive gone through and seen mods, fans swaps, and i really wanted to know what would be the best i can do for cooler temperatures. I can move HDD bays cause i only have one HDD and i can buy different fans(Recommend me some cause i dont know the difference) I also want liquid cooling and cant afford to make my own so i was looking towards H100i, i would also appreciate feedback on how i can place it on my case, i have seen the radiator on the top but where do fans go? Also the whole push/pull case configuration? where is best to put exhaust and intake? I dont mind putting on the mesh side panel if it will provide me better cooling

Thank You for you responses, i know its alot of questions but i want to make the best out of my first build.

Would 2 x 140mm fans fit?

My SSD is on the back of the motherboard tray for now
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Might buy one of these adaptors to fit my HDD in a drive bay!


I found if you read the description of most of the hot swappable enclosures they only support 1.5 / 3.0 gbp/s

How did you get rid of the annoying plastic thingy infront of the 200mm fan? The plastic thingy which is below the 3.5" bays?

You have very nice components so far. I have a H100 and I have nothing bad to say about it. Push/pull is easier with a H80. Some (including me) have finigled a H100 push/pull in on the top, but the fans will only be held by 2 instead of 4 screws. You can comfortably put it on the side mesh, but if you are like me, opening your case frequently, that will end up being a pain. I'm about to mod my case with a Mohawk to properly use push/pull. Btw, some have said it's not much difference in temps, but if I can I will.
As for mobo, I believe Asus and Gigabyte are the 2 manufacturers you should be looking at (any one can correct me if I'm wrong). Which one depends on your budget and what you need from it, like USB3.0, how many Sata3 ports, eSata, number of pci slots, etc
As for fans, it mostly depends on what you want as per noise level and looks. With radiators however, you need something with high static pressure. Most people swear by the gentle typhoon AP-15s. I currently have xigmatek xaf-f1255 for their LED lights. I'm about to switch to AP-00s.

Thank You for you responses, i know its alot of questions but i want to make the best out of my first build.

Depends on how much you wanna spend.

For a motherboard, the AsRock Z77 Extreme4 is great bang for your buck, and I've had no issues with it. There are also similar boards on the ASUS and Gigabyte side for around that price, although I can't name specifics. I believe for ASUS it's something like P8Z77 LV? They have an entire Z77 line. I know people also like some of the fancier ASUS or EVGA boards, but those can go up above the 200s or 300s.

The H100i is a great option, you can't go wrong with it. Most people put it at the top in a push or pull configuration. As manny said, some have made mods to allow push/pull, which admiteddly barely makes a difference in the H100i, so it's up to you to decide if you wanna invest the time in that or not. The fans also go on top: the 600T has a small compartment outside the case under the black grill at the top (the grill is removable by pushing its back end, much like the front fan filter) where the fans can go.

The typical airflow configuration for the case is intake from the front and exhaust from the back and top (although I'm not sure whether most radiator users set up the radiator fans as exhaust or intake?). You also have to decide if you want negative or positive pressure. Some people including myself followed user Devious Dog's lead of removing the 5.25" bay as to allow the placement of another 200mm fan for intake at the front. This requires some slight modding though, as you have to remove the rivets that hold the bay in place and drill holes for the second fan. It's also common for people to zip tie a fan on top of their HDD cage (which is placed in the backmost position) to spot cool their GPUs. Obviously the mesh panel will allow you to get better temps. By how much depends on your setup. And of course that implies the aesthetical tradeoff versus the window.

Corsair's Air series fans are excellent. A lot of people also like Scythe's Gentle Typhoons as manny said. There's also Bitfenix Spectre Pros, Silverstone Air Penetrators, Cougar Vortex, among others.

Plastic HDD base attached by four screws on the bottom. You'll have to remove the case front to access the two front screws.
