Yeah that pretty much sums me up as well, I really like this case, is there any set release date yet?

On corsair they didn't have any distributors that had it but its on newegg?

I was going to go ahead and order the Corsair Graphite Series 600Tcase off of newegg, is there anything else I should order, such are compound for the cpu to orient it horizontally etc? At this point in time I was just going to order the case and thermal compound and hold off on the only other things i may need, those being a newer graphics card and dual monitor display.

Have you considered water cooling your pc. I have found that it makes a lot of difference and leaves plenty of room for air flow.

Originally I was going to go with liquid cooling but I was talked out of it. I was actually looking at it and reconsidering it since I don't like the design of the current cpu fan I have. Unfortunately, I know little to nothing about liquid cooling.

If you want an all-in-one water cooling solution then I recommend what I use:

Thermaltakeusa**Cooler**Liquid Cooling**Liquid Cooling All-In-One**BigWater 760is : BigWater 760is CL-W0121

or you can build your own water cooling system piece by piece.

Does anyone else have an opinion on this?

You'll need to research and read some reviews about every piece of water cooling kit you use.
I'm only starting to get into watercooling myself, I just bought a Corsair H50. It only provides cooling for CPU.
But from my research so far, I'd be happy with anything from Thermaltake or Corsair. Both are reputable companies, who make good products for all ranges.

So it depends on what you want to do, and how hardcore you want to cool your gear.
The link Bobtran posted, looks good. It means you can start off with the CPU cooling block, then later add a GPU cooler. I've read (on TGDaily.com, I think) that Kingsington are doing water cooling blocks for RAM now

If you plan on building a monster machine piece by piece, then it would make sense to go cooling piece by piece.
Get the cooling blocks around the same time you get the components, and install them together.

The one thing I was looking at besides the Corsair 600t was the Corsair H50. I would like a new cpu cooler, since the thermaltake V1 kinda consumes a large amount of space but I have not decided yet. Right now I have a Thermaltake case, CPU cooler, power supply, and intake/output fans. Thermaltake does make very high quality goods as I've seen. For Corsair I have the ram but after looking around for the past few days I've come to like Corsair for a lot more than their ram.

I find that unless you are really overclocking something pretty heavily, water cooling is simply unnecessary. I've never considered a water cooling setup at all. Heck, I even overclock (albeit a very modest amount) with my stock cooler and I don't use any more fans than what came with my case.

That is true, plus after reading horror reviews about water cooling leaking and ruining 3-4 components of the computer makes me skeptical. I like the corsair H50 and H70 but even now I'm skeptical about them even though there are a few builds that have one or the other in the "Show Us Your Rig" thread.

I have never overclocked my pc, I have wanted to but never actually have. whether its because I don't know everything about it or my dad simply told me I didn't need to cause I have a super computer.
