I stop in to see how things are going every now and then. Haven't been using the 600T in my own build since I got my BH7 a little over a year ago. Gave the 600T to my dad though so at least it's still being used for his build.</div>

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

Hi I've just bought a 780T, also a psu cover and a magnetic front dust cover for it. I was thinking about top mounting for the H110i. I was wondering if there is enough clearance room between the motherboard to put 140mm fans on both side of radiator?</div>
</div>
<br>
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.<br><br>
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.</div>
</div>
<br>
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... <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/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.<br><br>
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/collections/radiator-templates/products/laser-cut-reusable-radiator-template-dual-120mm-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.

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!

Can I be added to the 380T list in the OP? I have posted a picture of mine.
I asked that question three years ago... Okay, the chassis is no longer a virgin!!!! I finally got a rig going in it!

Meet "The Honeycomb Hideout". And yes, of course it's a Hexacore with that name!



The only real snag I ran into was that I had to snip off the tab on the 8-pin power connector to fit the H100i v2 back in.



I'll have to work on cable management, and hook up the drives, but at this point, it's a working system!





I may have only paid $69.99 (after rebates) for the Corsair Graphite 380T on June 1, 2015, but it's a nice case (and no longer a virgin!), and I'd even say that it might be worth what people are charging on eBay these days. It is actually a breeze to build in compared to so many other mini-ITX cases!





Can I be added to the list now? I'll be posting some preliminary OC results, including pre/post delidding numbers probably next weekend to the i7-8086K OC Results thread.

Nice build there man. Too bad this thread and the Graphite thread seem so dead now, but everyone is moving to Tempered Glass cases it seems. Personally I love my 760T.

Hi Guys,

Anyone know if those usb 2.0 front panel ports on the 600T can be replaced with a usb 3.0 assembly?

thanks

You would have to mod something to do that. I don't think anyone else has done it previously, so you would be the first.

Hello friends!

I am about to join the Corsair Graphite Club.


I am currently in the search of a Case for my Workstation, currently in between the 780T and 760T. Can get both of them for around the same price, Black Color Scheme.


Which one do you like the most?


Thanks in advance!

Nice to see the 600T thread merged into a larger Corsair one! Haven't been on OC.net in a while but still in love with my 600T case, swallowed up a Corsair H100i v2 like nothing and still very quiet.

I thought I was added to the 380T list some time ago when I first requested.

anyhow, you can see the following pictures in my rig list in my signature as "The Honeycomb Hideout".

please add me to the list of the proud owners of the best portable itx case ever produced, the corsair graphite 380T!

thanks

ps: these pics are from before i got a great deal on a gtx 1080 (msi gaming x).

I don't know if anyone is modding this thread anymore.

It's unreal that it's so slow since many of these cases are still being sold.

I recently moved on from my 600t. Still have it and might use it for something else. Great case that lasted me a long time.
