Hopefully they do provide a Mail in Old Fans for the New fans, or atleast help us get the 1000rpm fans...

Yeah it would be nice. I noticed NZXT has two different speed 200x200x30MM fans at Micro Center. Wish Corsair would at least offer the 200x200x20mm 1000rpm fans as an option to buy at the very least. A trade in option would be awesome.

I'm pretty surprised, what with how, ahem, (justifiably imho) heated the Fractal Design VS Corsair thread got, and how the very good natured Corsair George saw all the concern over the thin front fan and lack of option for upgrading it, they didn't use some of the time spent fiddling with the type of plastic to use to address this issue, or at least re-tool some dual 140mm options. I also cannot fathom why there isn't the option to mount a 200mm fan on the side mount of the new side panel - having 4x120mm fans on the side is just going to work against the whole principal of cold and quiet - whoever radioed in that "design" choice needs to be spanked (as long as they don't enjoy that sort of thing)!

I see the 600T as a very long term seller for Corsair, and honestly appreciate the work and detail put into its design, if only they had made the changes to the front fan fittings, I would have bought one and have recommended it to many other potential customers.

I still think its a great case, but it so clearly could have been one of the best cases . I also wholeheartedly agree that Corsair should offer some kind of programme for exchange/free/minimal charge for the newer 1000rpm fans.

Kita, the changes to fit a 200mm x 30mm fan (or front 2x120mm fans) couldn't be done in time for this chassis. Those changes take a lot of time (months and months) to get implemented and cost a lot of money in new tooling.

Rest assured that I have heard your opinions.

As for the side mesh not having a 200mm fan mount, the vast majority of people are asking for 120mm fan spacing - something like 80%. The complaints about the 200mms are that they're perceived as "uncommon in hole pattern" and "not as good at focused cooling as a 200mm" so the side panel was designed to address those complaints directly.

It's funny. You put 120mm fans in, people complain that 200mm fans are bigger.
You put 200mm fans in, people complain that 120mm fans are cheaper and more common.

You really can't win. No case is going to be perfect for everybody.

Every single thread I post in, I get conflicting results. They want the 600T with a window, but then the 650D they want without a window. They want USB 3.0 compatibility with motherboards that don't have an internal header (last year's boards), and then half the guys get angry that it's not compatible with the internal header (this year's boards).

You just can't win.

So... what about those 1000 rpm fans for us original 600T owners? I would be willing to pay for them, but not $20 a pop.

Hi again George,

It takes a bold man to frequent the forums where his products are discussed, so kudos for your perseverance. As someone who sells a wide range of products online (not related to computers), I can empathize with the frustration you feel trying to hear everyone out, especially on a hobbyist forum. Imagine Da Vinci trying to sell the Mona Lisa online... "Nice painting but *** is wrong with her mouth bro?!!?1?" "Lulz shoulda made her blonde IMHO."

For what it's worth, your participation gives me a lot of confidence in Corsair products and, when I start my next build, I'll be buying a lot of them.

Cheers!

Corsair George, thank you for your measured, honest response.

I hear, and understand your points; I was just gutted with regards to the cooling options of the 600t- as the proud and incredibly happy owner of a HX650 and more recently also a HX850 I was so impressed with the build quality of those units, I naturally almost jumped at the chance to buy a 600t.

It pains me that the case is so very near to perfection. Outstanding build quality, builder/modder/"enthusiast" [hate that term...] friendly design, spacious, I mean the design would make sense for a first time builder and equally to someone like me who has been building [but not modding] for 20 odd years.

For me, Hard drive, Cpu and PSU temperatures rule my computing world, in that order. Despite wanting to buy the 600t so badly as it ticks every other box [removable psu fan filter...- though I didn't like that part of the PSU fan is obscured from the filter] but falls down on HD temps and the relatively poor front fan performance lets it down.

I hear you regarding the new side panel, but surely it wouldn't have taken too much effort and tooling to have the option for 4x120mm fans *and* holes for a 200mm fan? Also, that the side panel doesn't have a dust filter is pretty unforgivable. I really hope that Corsair will come up with something that addresses these issues, and its a real shame that for this build, there isn't a Corsair case that fits my (admittedly demanding) requirements. It will be a good 5 years before I will be able to upgrade to a new system and in all absolute honesty, I think its a damn shame this build won't be in a 600T - I really mean that.

I hope Corsair comes up with something to help owners of the 600T to get hold of the new 1000rpm fans in as painless and cost effective way as possible, with Corsairs excellent reputation for customer service and product quality I imagine that will happen.

Apologies for the essay, and I won't de-rail the thread any more, sorry to all the owners in this thread!

We'll make them available on the webstore, I don't know the pricing yet, but I'll make them available for you guys who want louder, faster fans.

I would be really willing to buy 650d fans!

Once again! Perfect corsair customer service... It's why I love their products so much!
