I am still using my white 600t. love it!

I just read through a bunch of posts on Corsair's forums. Several mention that you can install a push pull rad in the top without any issues.

Btw, that case has a front dust filter built-in. Also, the front bezel is plastic, so your filter may not work at all unless you manage to put it inside somehow or between the bezel and the metal chassis. The front filter can easily be removed and cleaned, as is the case for most high-end Corsair cases.

Hay thanks, you're exactly right. I just got it, omg it's huge. It has a dust filter on the front, good enough, you don't want to lose the air flow. At the top you could fit external fans (covered by the case) to the rad, and inside the rad would have fans set on the other side to push -so easily both sides. I want to mount the rad on the top because the hot air from a front mount was too much with the temps on the gpu, by about 6-8c depending on CPU usage. But a top mount is normally a little hotter on a cpu rad, still alright, gpu comes first. It should be good... smile.gif

I hope you enjoy that case. I would be using it right now if it had one or two more external drive bays. Since it didn't I got the 760T instead.

Don't forget to post us some pics when you're done.

So if there's one thing I don't care for about my 600T it's this empty space under the 5.25" drive bays.

I suppose with the cages all mounted there it's not issue, but it looks cluttered and blocks airflow. Plus that Thermaltake 200 mm intake fan is a lot thicker than the original Corsair units. It would be one thing if the motherboard tray extended all the way to the front of the chassis, but it doesn't, and instead there's a big white gap. I thought about painting the inside of the panel black to help it blend more, and I may still do that.

However, some of the cases at CES 2018 had side mounted exhaust fans in that general location and look awesome. That got me thinking...I wonder if a couple 120mm fans would fit in that area?

Sure enough, they fit, and thanks to the thicker intake fan they're actually snugly held in place. So what about venting out of the case? Well, the original front panel's window is offset and when placed on the back side of the case covers about half the fan area. Since the panel bows outward away from the motherboard tray, the fans also have room to breathe. I removed the acrylic insert and installed the mesh panel that (amazingly) I knew the location of and never thought I'd use.

As far as temps, nothing huge, but the GPU is idling at 39° vs 40° and the HDDs are running 2-4° cooler at 30-32°. Some some function to go with the form. To complete the look I swapped out my test fans for a couple more white Thermaltake Riing fans. Love the look. They actually stay in place fine on their own, but for now I zipped the two fans together and then to one of teh cable hooks on the motherboard tray. They're quite snug and aren't going anywhere.

I think I'm going to get one of these "templates" which will give me something to screw both fans down to, and then secure the whole assembly to the chassis.

https://www.primochill.com/collectio...m-15mm-spacing.

As a nice little bonus, I finally have a use for the fan controller on the case. All of the other fans are plugged into the motherboard, but I don't think I have any more headers on the mobo, and I wanted to run these at low power, so the controller works perfectly for that.

If corsair redid the 600T with tempered glass and removed the optical bays (and redo the front filter so its full cover) they would sell a lot of them i think. Still one of the best looking cases of all time.

I love t his case, the build quality, the design, and the room.

I would like the option to have them be removable, but I still want the 5.25" bays in there as I use 3 of them. I agree though, I'd love to see the case re-released with TG (or even nice acrylic what I have now), more intake and exhaust options (ability to mount 120 and 120 mm fans not just the 200 in front or 200 and 120 up top)), a PSU shroud with a 2 drive cage in it, and more locations for SSDs and maybe another HDD or two behind the motherboard tray as there's loads of room. Until then, I'll just tweak it to my liking.

I also need the optical drive bays. I didn't purchase the new version specifically because there were not enough bays. The 760T at least had three. Without them, I likely wouldn't own a Corsair case.

If Corsair redid the 600T with more modern features I would almost certainly buy one! I think my only other issue with the 600T is that it had a few build quality issues that I wouldn't have expected given the higher price of the case. I love that case and may even go back to it once space is no longer an issue.

Like everyone on this site, I am still learning. If I ever make a mistake or a bad recommendation, please let me know so that I can learn from it

Yeah, I think the 600T is one of those rare products with staying power.
A few ssd mounts, USB C, better or no fan controller. Heck, just leave the fans out so the customer can pick his own fans. There isn't much wrong with that case.

Still running my backup rig in my white 600T to this day! I absolutely love this case and if I hadn't decided on a Silverstone TJ-11 for my water cooled main rig it'd still be my main case. Only problem it has right now is that the fan controller died a few years ago. Other than that its held up really well and still looks brand new!
