    Not that I can afford to get a new case right now, but I'll definitely be looking for a new housing after I get my end of year upgrade... Anybody here had any experience with the Corsair Graphite Series 600T?

    I've pretty much always had my sights set on a CoolerMaster Cosmos, particularly the RC-1100, but their insane price tag makes me really sad (about R3000 to R3500 for my dream case here in SA). So a Graphite 600T for about R1500 (or the mesh panel version for about R100 more) is a bit more bearable. But would you guys consider this case to be worth the money though...?
    A friend of mine here in pretoria bought that exact case a few days ago when it was on special,he loves the case but he said if he could change one thing it would be that the case should support e-atx motherboards. Other than that he prefers that case above any other, and he has the gtx570 in it with an h70cooler, and it looks great in that case.

    Fortunately the MSI board I'm getting is straight up ATX then.. And I don't have to feel bad about missing the special because I need to sell my current hardware before I can buy a new case. :P lol. So there's a good chance that my PC will be sitting in pieces in between selling this and buying the 600T...

    Oh, and I am so definitely going to mod it.... Custom side panel windows (both sides), extended sleeved cables (from NZXT), and tinted perspex with white EL tape lighting inside.

    Phoneman,

    I have a good feeling the bugs will get worked out with BD so don't despair the six core on sale rips up projects like crazy. You've built a wicked rig and it looks way cool. That 400 case is a mad option for the monies ! Great solutions and options........Is Corsair the best case manufacturer at the moment? I think they are by a fair margin !
    Thanks Alan,
    I really like the Corsair 400R case. It came with two 120mm front fans and one rear fan. I replaced the rear fan with the H2O cooler and added 4 140mm quiet fans (60.9 CFM, 16dB-A) One in the bottom next to the PSU, two on the side and one on top. Still room for one more on top. The grommets for the cable cutouts also stay in place even when you shove the cables. My older NZXT case the grommets would fall out just looking at them. The panels on the case bulge out so lots of room for the cables. I got this case for $89.99 after a $10 rebate but I see the price is about $104 now, but well worth the price.

    Wait... That's... 7 fans? Excluding CPU, GPU and PSU fans of course. So, 10 in total? And you still have space for another one? Unless of course the H20 cooler has two fans, then it's 11... Lol.

    You, my friend, have your own personal wind tunnel!

    There is also room for two more on the inside of the HDD cage. So you can mount 10 case fans, but I didn't want to over do it.

    Lol.. Nice. Yeah, I think with 10 fans (and no speed controller for all of them) it would probably hover above your desk. Or at the very least sound like it wants to...

    I keep my phone books on top to hold it down. I do have a fan controller as the stock front fans are 120mm and a little noisy. But the 140mm fans are really quiet and move a lot of air so I can also turn them down if needed. Still installing software and will play with the fans to balance temps and noise.

    I have both a 600T (AMD 955BE) and a 400R (Intel 2500K)
    To tell you the truth I like the 400R case better. It has a USB3 motherboard header V the 600T where you have to run the cable out the back. The 400R has many more fan mounting points as well.
    400R still need to add some stuff, video card, SSD, HD's, fans & controller, media card reader.
