The fan moves a tiny bit if you move the case position or when the fan kicks on full speed but only a very small amount, and I've yet to hear any vibration from it. The duct at the back is attached the same way, with a piece of heavy wire bent at a 180 and sent out the back mesh at the back of the case. Then I just twisted the wires tight on the back with some pliers like I did with the fan. I really lucked out with the fan mounting as the existing holes in the mobo tray were exactly 120mm apart and right in the perfect spot to cool the GPU.

Alright, sounds good! It kind of look like the fan is just floating there. Gives the build a very interesting look anyway smile.gif


You could definitively fit a 140 there instead though, it would give you a bit more airflow but it could be a bit worse with vibrations and such due to the way that you have mounted it.

I could have gone with a few that would have given me higher CFM but these FM 121's push 110 CFM which is higher than most 140mm fans. The 140mm fans that pushed more air didn't come in the white to go with the build and wouldn't have fit the spot so well. I've also had previous experience with the FM 121 so I knew how beast they were biggrin.gif

Well in that case you made a great choice wink.gif

What is your take on the FM 121's then? 110 CFM is quite a lot for only a 2400 RPM. My Super Kaze that is 38mm thick and 3000rpm pushes according to the specs 133cfm while the 3000RPM Gentle Typhoon I got only does something like 83 CFM.

And those fans makes a fair bit of noise. How are the noise levels for your system?

Well with the fan controller I just installed the thing is pretty damned quiet right now as I just have the 200mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro and the Noctua NF-P12's running at full speed and they are very quiet, yet still provide enough air to create positive pressure with the exhaust turned down. When I game I'm wearing headphones with the volume cranked so I can't hear the system, but yea it does sound like a vacuum with all the fm 121's spinning at top speed. lachen.gif

The only issue I have with the FM 121's is that they come with an odd wiring set up. They include their own single channel fan controller that is designed to fit into a 3.5" floppy drive bay lol. Kind of a pain when you'd like to use your own fan controller or the motherboard pwm connecters. So there is one yellow RPM wire to connect to the mobo for fan monitoring; one very short 2 pin female cable that is for the included fan controller; and a long molex male/female cable. Easy enough to find a 3 pin male female cable and splice it with a molex cable with smaller gauge 3pin wire leading out of it from my stash of wiring accessories and old PCs that I just can't seem to get out of the crawl space whistle.gif

Haven't started on the 'real' cables yet smile.gif
I did sleeve 5 sata data cables just a moment ago, I can see that my fingers are hurting a bit and I got ropeburn again tongue.gif

Turns out my dad had a heatgun, works way better than a lighter smile.gif

I'm still trying to get through all the posts in this thread but I thought I would share my 600T SE and what I've done with it. But first I have to congratulate everyone on all the awesome builds and for giving me great ideas for my own. Recently I've had the upgrade itch (which I'm hoping to satisfy with a new GTX 780:D) but in the mean time I thought I would upgrade my cooling situation since I knew I could get better flow and case pressure ( I went for positive pressure to keep dust out).

So I grabbed a 200mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro for the front and moved all my drives to a 5.25' to 3.5" Silverstone bay converter and replaced it's stock fan with a FM121 to go along with the other 2 I have. Up top there are two 120mm Noctua NF-P12's as intake to add to CPU cooling and positive case pressure. The FM121 in the middle is secured through two slots in the MB tray designed for cable management with some heavy wire bent to shape around the fans and twisted tight on the back on the mobo tray. It seems to be secure enough thumb.gif I was wondering if the switching the top to intake could have disturbed the exhaust fan airflow as it was blowing intake air directly at it so I created that custom duct out of an old DVD-R spindle lid I had lying around and it seems to help CPU temps quite a bit as it acts as a push/pull for the CPU heatsink w/o having to mount another fan. To control all of this fan goodness I'm using a Fractal Adjust 108 6 channel fan controller.

When I decided to switch the top to intake I had to find some filter material so I went to a local fabric shop and got some a huge piece of black sheer fabric for $10. This stuff has come in handy as I also used it on the front of the 5.25" bay converter. I've also cut out most of the plastic spacers on the front and top grills as a lot of other users have done. When adding the mesh to the top I had to add some wire to hold the fabric back from being sucked into the NF-P12's and rubbing against the blades.

Please excuse the sloppy cable management and the dust on the HSF (it is almost two years old tongue.gif ) Oh and the crappy cell phone shots.





The new fan solution combined with moving the HDD trays has really increased the air flow in the case and temps have dropped by ~ 5-10C

After an hour of BF3 the highest the CPU got was 49C and the GPU was 70C yessir.gif All set to overclock a new 780!wheee.gif

If you use the hdd cage you can mount the fan on the existing hole ( where the second hdd cage is supposed to be)
You could put a rubber mount where the screw is to get rid of the noise


Sorry about the picture quality

good job though smile.gif

Great job on getting the heatshrink up under the clip. It's seemless.
