Hi everybody! Will post good photos of my 600t as soon as my side panel arrives. Until then, here's a few with my phone.

This doesn't sound like much, but it can be the difference between selling a case for $99 or selling it for $119. And that $20 may not sound like much, but most people wouldn't pay more for the exact same chassis just because it has PWM fans. Heck, most people who buy cases don't know the difference between a PWM fan and a standard fan. And anybody that would care about PWM fans would likely be replacing the fans with their own so it's kind of a moot point.

You guys have to remember that people as knowledgeable as you are 1% (at best) of the possible market. Think about it. How many friends do you have that look to you for computer advice? 5? 10? 50? When you count family members into that, how high does it go?

But I wouldn't have it any other way. At least this way I know that somebody cares about the little details.
Just HAD to dazzle me with your logic, didn't you?

"Heck, most people who buy cases don't know the difference between a PWM fan and a standard fan."

I guess ya got me there. Heck, even some people with enough knowledge to install a hydro type cooler still just plug their fans into the PSU and let them run 100% all the time. Cripes, that would drive me crazy to have my system that loud all the time. Still though, since Corsair used thinner 200mm fans, people who would like to use a PWM 200mm fan don't really have any choice. Oh well, at least they seem to work OK using voltage control. I can get the 700RPM fan down to 500RPM and it's pretty quiet for web browsing and such. I don't mind noise when I'm gaming. Any way you cut it though (so to speak) it's still a sweet case.

@kita24

"I'd love to see Corsair design and market something bold like the Cosmos 1000...A standout American case, roomy, brash, built to last, full to the brim of options, the kind of case geeks n freaks just couldn't resist..."

I know case looks are subjective, but...ew....

That reminds me of something I might see in the restroom at a local restaurant, or maybe a kitchen appliance I might have purchased back in the 70s. Not great cable management either.

If the only thing holding you off using a 600T is the mesh fan mounts, why not put your own mesh there? Or just mount a 200mm fan to the stock mesh? I mean, it's just mesh right? How hard can it be to replace the mesh and make mounts for a 200mm fan? More rep for that than just using the stock options. I wanted a little more air in my case too, so I did something no one else has done (that I've seen) and modded the bottom of my 600T so I could mount another intake fan. It took a couple of hours, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I think modding the side panel mesh for a 200mm fan would be easier to do.



Here is the side panel from my roomates Haf X. It has mounts for 200mm and four 120mm fans. It looks fine to me, showing you could mount a 200mm fan on the 600T if you wanted to:





Here is the mesh cover for the 600T windowed side panel. All it would take is some careful drilling and 4 grommets to mount the fan:





Who knows, when I upgrade my main board and CPU maybe I'll go this rout myself. It looks like a pretty easy mod to me.

I was tempted again by the charms of the 600T, and was hovering over buying one, but after the disaster that is no option to mount a 200mm fan in the side, which would have kept airflow, and noise constant, that forced me against it. My new build will be in my part of the large chill/sleeping room, and on 24/7 so it needs to be really quiet, and cool. So I have plumped for my second Silverstone case, a Raven 2 Evo this time [and will bung a 3xhd tray in the front with probably a quiet Scythe fan to cool them.

I don't get Corsair George's theory that 1% of his customers know what they are doing, that sounds pretty absurd imho, maybe for store branded cases, but I doubt your average idiot buys Corsair. Anyhow, one lost sale (due to Corsair underestimating its customer base).
could of got the aftermarket side that comes with a grille which is interchangeable with a window.. you can mount 2 120mm fans.. or could of drilled the holes in it to mount a 200mm

Good job, very clean. Nice build. What size is your large monitor?

@ Mergatroid It's a 27". Once I get my quarterly bonus, I'm gonna pick up 2 more of them. They are great monitors. You've got a nice build too!

ra, true, but, why should I really have to? Anyhoo, off this thread now as its Raven 02 Evo all the way for this build ; )
They have done something unlike anything on the market with the 600T, it just doesn't match your standards. What other case out there gives you an option of a window or mesh panel on the side like that?
