Ventilation on the 600t?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Gonna be going Tri-SLI this summer and this case's ventilation just will not cut it. I was wondering how the airflow on the Corsair 600t is and if anyone had better mid-tower suggestions.

NZXT tempest evo has AWESOME airflow for a mid tower if you dont think the 600t will cut it.

I've founds loads of useful case reviews on Bit-Tech.net

Here's the cooling performance section for the 600t:

They also show the stock cooling performance on other cases, which is why it's my favorite case review ATM since i care about temps

Unfortunately, they update their test setup so if your looking at old cases, it only compares to other old cases.

And for my suggestion/s: FT02 or RV02/RV02-E since they have the best stock temps according to Bit-Tech, and they look pretty good IMO.

You might want to consider the White version, with the mesh side panel that can house four 120mm fans, and comes stock with higher-RPM 200mm fans in front and on top.

The cooling with the mesh side panel and fans as well as the higher RPM 200mm fans is pretty awesome, and more than sufficient for 3-way SLI.

The Antec 902 V3 has great cooling and is also a mid tower. Might be difficult fitting in all your cards though if you also want to use several harddrives.


I don't like the HAF series due to the lack of removable and washable dust filters, but the HAF 922 is a reasonable price. It has tons of room for a mid tower and great cooling.

I would love to get the white 600T but I can't find it anywhere, is it only available from Corsair website?

It hasn't been released yet, it's coming in April.

Yeah, shipments are on the water so they should show up regionally starting in mid to late April.

Will there be a white side panel? The Corsair website only mentions the black one atm

The white case comes with the window/mesh side panel. It doesn't come with a solid panel like the black 600t.
