do you find that 3/8 x1/2 is nice and flexible and allows you to do what you want?

Mate this is a sleek elegant looking build. I love black and white scheme which is what I am going to end up with in my 650D.<br><br>
Are you going to be using mayhems pastel ice white or just DI?

It fit it has good air flow and is quiet, the only fans I can hear on my rig are the little ones on the motherboard ( I will replace those soon ).<br><div class="quote-container" data-huddler-embed="/t/1365660/build-log-my-600t-watercool-rig#post_19414811" data-huddler-embed-placeholder="false"><span>Quote:</span>

I have a similar setup and found I had better results by setting the top fans to blow air in and the rear fan as exhaust. That way both rads get cool air from outside and the top rad is not getting air already warmed by the front rad.

Yes, I thought about that too.<br><br>
The reason I have the rear fan as intake and top fans as exhaust is because all fans I have blowing air inside the case have washable filters.<br>
I had a hard time trying to figure how to put filters on the top.<br><br>
That is something I didn't try on my last rig, as a result It build up too much dust inside the case and inside the radiators.<br><br>

SLI and Memory cooler update:<br><br><br>
A friend at work gave me a Corsair memory cooler, here is how it look after i changed the fan and added black fan grills:<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1349892/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1349892" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1349892/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>

White cable extensions anytime soon?<br>
This is one of the few builds where colored cables look good (as in no sleeving or extensions)

I use a Decmi Flex 360 filter on the top mesh ... it fits, adds no restriction that I could measure, and works great.<br><br>
The standard front filter on my case does add a bit of restriction so I'm going to get another 240 filter to put there.<br><br>
Edit: I just remembered you have it easy ... there is a full Decmi kit just for the 600t

Bad planing, crappy case, bad location of the radiator by the door, 3 Motherboard water-blocks... but as ugly as it looks it last me 5 years.<br>
Here is the first version ( I updated the reservoir later on, I got no Pics. )<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1355855/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1355855" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1355855/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 431px; height: 604px"></a><br><br>
I was going to actually use my old GTX 8800 on my current PC.. but a stupid capacitor fell off the video card... <img alt="mad.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/mad.gif"><br><br>
Anyway, I may use the old PC Motherboard / CPU / Memory and Video Card and re-design the case water cooling for my kid.
