Great job there. Very well done.

Something to consider: I was also thinking about this.

I would try and arrange it so the drive would open if you pushed on the mesh. Did you manage that or are you using Windows to open and close the drive?

@smorg

"went to turn the top fan around today to make it an intake.. I raged when i found out the screws will only go on 1 side..."

I hear ya, I also raged a bit when I tried the same thing. Another 50 cents worth of plastic would have fixed that. I suppose you could try wiring the power on the fan backwards, but the flow likely wouldn't be as good.

@CeaserNYC

Are you having any dust problems with your side panel fans? I worry about the lack of a dust filter. I've already cleaned my PC about 3 times since January, the Corsair filters seem to keep out all but the finest dust. No bunnies, but still dust.

Also, when I had my H70 set as intake for a few months and I reversed it, it had started getting quite dusty because there's no dust filter on the top. I cleaned it and since reversing to exhaust there has been zero dust on the H70 fans or rad.

For anyone looking for the windowed side panel in Canada, I ordered mine from Memory Express. I don't know where they got it from, but it took a couple of weeks. They are western Canada only (Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver) at memoryexpress.com

Anyone ordering in from overseas, don't forget import duties and taxes, and perhaps even brokerage fees.

One last thought: Corsair George, a nice addition to a PC case would be a few little strips of felt with sticky backing, so when you install hard drives and fan controllers you can stick the felt along the bottom or top of an external bay cover, between the cover and the drive, to keep dust from getting through the crack between the drive and the bay cover. Or just have pre-installed felt or foam strips along the top or bottom of all the bay covers. You install nice stuff in your sweet case and it always leaves gaps between the components in the drive bays.

More side panels should be on the website soon. We order more every time and they get sold out almost instantly - so we ordered a huge chunk this time.

Didn't realize it'd be so popular.
post #965 of 18196
Thats the new trend now. I only buy cases with Side Windows, like my Previous 800D, 650D and Now the 600T SE... Im waiting locally to get another 600T SE onces Microcenter has it in stock... My First arrived today and I was so happy, but yet so careful with it because its white, any dirty hands or anything will leave a mark haha....

Corsair George, is the white on this case really tough, say from scratches and scuffs? I know 650D and 800D were.. Because sometimes i would bump it while moving it and no chipped paint or anything... Great quality. I guess ill have to see with the White.

now that you mention it, when I went in to install the 240mm rad on the top, while the case floor had minimal dust, the H70 looked like it had a years worth of dust in the fins. The intake side panel fans are directly feeding the H70 running as exhaust. To be fair the room the computer is now in had a fair amount of plastering/sanding/woodwork done in the past month or so; I cleaned the H70 and will wait a few more weeks and see if it looks as bad.

On a sad note I broke my headphone jack on the top of the case. Well my 2 year old did. Came up behind me while I was playing Portal 2, started playing with the headphone cable, and then yanked it right out of the jack. At her height she couldn't pull it straight up, but down and to the side. Luckily my headphones are built like a tank but my poor headphone jack flew right out of the hole. I wish I could buy parts from Corsair to fix that, and for the fan controller since I broke that a few months back by attaching some fans that were a little too much for it. I noticed the obsidian series has all these modules and add ons. If not possible this gen I would sure like to see the Graphite series get parts you can swap out.
The fan controller still supplies power just no longer spins the fans down, and I only used the headphone jack for gaming, I do have an external dac/amp for music that I could use for games too; so neither is a tragic loss but my 600T is taking a beating frown.gif

Actually, I cut and painted a piece of aluminum to go inside the mesh (so you can't see the drive) Then crimped the mesh around the insert. The drive opens by touching the bottom right corner (very little pressure.) I did that by putting a little piece of foam tape over the button. The next things to do are drill a hole for the drive light and another little hole for the manual door release.

Also drilled new holes in the DVD drive (makes the bay cover flush with the rest of them) so my quick release brackets would still work (Still a tool free case!)

Well I am happy to say I just ordered the Corsair 600T Special Edition White from NewEgg as well as a ASUS Crosshair IV Formula Mobo. I am finally starting to buy parts for my very first build. I should have all the parts I need by September. I am thinking about doing unboxing videos as I get parts but still not sure. I will post pics of the case and mobo when I get them. So soon you will be able to add me as a member of the Official Corsair Graphite Club. biggrin.gif
