Push pull possible on Corsair 600t?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to do a push pull with a 240 and fans mounted to the underside of the case with the pull fans up top under the mesh?

Doesn't the PSU block the bottom vent? That vent is meant for the PSU, after all.

Do you mean push-pull with a particular cooler, or push-pull with the case fans? Because the case fans are like that already...intake at bottom front and exhaust 120mm at rear and 200mm at top.

EDIT: Oh...you mean rads. Sorry, spaced out a bit. Should fit...most of the early reviews said it was designed with that in mind.

Legit Reviews says it'll fit:

http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1320/1/

"The top mesh on the Corsair Graphite 600T is removable by just pressing on it to release it from a couple push clamps. This allows for easy cleaning of the mesh, but it also gives you space to mount up to a 240mm radiator on top of the PC case. With the top cover being removable you don't have to worry if the radiator for your water cooling loop will fit or not."

I cannot mount push fans on my top rad in my 600T. One fan would hit the 8 pin CPU plug, the other would hit my ram holders/clamps. And the 240 rad mounts on the inside of the case, with only fans mounting under the top mesh.

So basically my only option is to drill a few holes and mount my rad under the mesh since I would rather have push over pull.
post #7 of 9
I dont think it would be that straight forward. I have looked mine over pretty intensely, thinking about modding.

Where the top fans and rad mounts, the steel is stamped down about 1/4 inch. Then, after the bump up from where the mounting area is, is a plastic layer for the front panel. So it raises up about 5/16, which you would have to compensate for. The the top mesh gets tight if you move the top fans, the top mesh has supports that get into the way, but thats easy to mod.

But, it is a great case IMO. Check out the club link in my sig. Very clean, and nice looking builds. A pleasure to build in. And dont let people tell you it has bad airflow, the stock fans are all to blame for that. Easy fix.

Yeah I love what you have done with the 3 120s in the front and would def copy that. Just running out of HD space in my k62 and this case has caught my eye. Looked at the phantom too but it looks cheap and going from a Lian Li to a NZXT is just wrong.

Phantom = win, just saying. However, for water, the phantom honestly sucks. And why the heck haven't they made a side panel with a window yet? even as an accessory, i'd buy it. But for air cooling, the phantom is pretty good (you may need to replace the fans i guess, but who uses stock fans and expects good cooling? ).

To the OP: You can also put a 200mm rad in the front of the case, specifically the Phobya Xtreme. This, plus a 240 rad working in push or pull at the top, would probably get better performance than a 240 rad at the top in push/pull. I believe you could also get a slim 120MM rad in the back exhaust, whether you had to mount the fan outside the case or not, while still keeping the 240MM rad at the top of the case. You may even be able to get push/pull on the 120MM rad if you get a slim enough rad and slim enough fans, and mount one of the fans outside the case. I personally wouldn't want the additional 120MM rad on the back as i think it severely detracts from the aesthetics and doesn't provide enough performance increase, but it is an option. I would measure this first though just to make sure.
