Side Panel on:



Sparkles, Mine are on the outside too. You can just mount the fans on the inside and move the radiator position. Theres diagrams and all sorts if you look back through the thread, we discussed this in detail some time ago.

Yeah i like the braided look it has. I think i am gonna get a strip see how it goes. Thanks Darylesse ... By the way the side panel fan is looking a lot better painted black with the grill on. thumb.gif

It was 75$ for the panel (125$ if you want polished) and shipping to Belgium was 51$

Doh! I was fiddling around with my side panel, dropped it and the fan grill had chipped...respray it is then!

The grill makes a kind of droaning noise which is annoying, i still need to come up with a master plan!

Trying the Piranha again i can confirm its only about 1 - 2c behind the AP-15 so would be a great fan for those who want PWM Control and great performance!

Totally up to you though dude. I think lots of writing / graphics could make it a little 'geekish' rather than a professional look.

Of course that's only my view I'm sure whatever you choose will turn out great

Gonna back this up. Personally I think you wanna go for a clean look.

Since I eventually have to get a new PS, I was wondering if you peeps could give me some advice.

I plan on getting another 660 Ti for a two-way SLI config at some point. For that, a 750~W should suffice, yeah? But what I was wondering is, should I get something like an 850~W as to have some headroom for future-proofing? I'll never have more than a two-way SLI, at least not with our current paradigm. What do you all think?

A decent 750w PSU will power two 660 ti's but I'd say go for a 850w if you want some additional headroom for overclocking or some other fun things. A popcorn machine maybe?

Hey guys

I have been dealt a great injustice (by myself). I was stupid enough to sell my graphite grey & black 600T - yeah, I know doh.gif

I am not looking at getting another one again, though this time the Silver edition. I have few questions though:

1.) Just to confirm, all the newer production models' front fan is mounted using screws and not that plastic fan bracket? This will allow me to install a 200mm by 30mm Cooler Master MegaFlow? The older plastic bracket only allowed 20 or 25mm fans. I am aware that I will need to move the HDD cages.

2.) If I recall correctly, Corsair or somebody in the forum mentioned that Corsair would have switched to newer and better revised fan controller modules to allow a greater range of voltage control - which ultimately would result in a better range of fan control?

3.) My 600T had front USB 3.0 support via a USB type A header connected through the back of the chassis, into the back of the motherboard. Did Corsair perhaps upgrade this to with the USB 3.0 headers that connects directly to the dedicated front USB 3.0 motherboard header connector?

Hey guys. Good news. I got a 600T again - thank goodness - though this time the Silver edition. Now need to look for a buyer for my Cooler Master (CM) HAF 912 that is less than a week old after I sold my original graphite grey 600T.

You may notice that I no longer have my H100 as I sold it too (after 3x swop-outs I still had a defective fan controller). I am thinking of getting a CM Seidon as most coolers from either Asetek or CoolIT have some or other issues, especially (in some case grinding) pump noises and fan controller issues. I experienced issues with 2x Antec Kuhler 920's as well (1x was a swop-out too). All in all I had 5x AIO CPU water coolers and every single one of them had issues (both Asetek and CoolIT units). I read that CM's was designed by them from the ground up instead of relying on other OEMs. In the meantime I put back my spare and trusty CM Hyper 212 until I get a Seidon.

You guys may have also noticed that I ditched the red colour scheme in favour of blue as I got tired of red and the difficulty of finding red accessories & peripherals. I still need to buy a blue CM MegaFlow 200mm and a few 120mm case fans in blue as well.

I also want to get a modular fully sleeved PSU kit from Corsair in either blue or black.

I know the pic quality isn't great and please keep in mind it is still work in progress to get everything the way I want it but this is what I have to share so far:

Just make a water cooling setup using SlushPuppy as a coolant and then you just have a drain port for your nightly cravings.

WHY DIDN'T CORSAIR INCLUDE THIS FROM THE BEGINNING? Seems like a huge oversight to me mad.gif

.

I would've suggested the H220 but it's not exactly the quietest AIO out there. Swiftech also designed theirs from the ground up but it's still very early and for now problems seem to have been worked out. I like mine though. thumb.gif The big problem now is finding one while the supply is scarce.
