Been that way the whole week.

For air cooling I'd say HAF X beats most cases hands down (except for the Silverstone RV02/FT02 type cases).
If your mind is set on the 600T, I'd recommend getting the side panel, and swap the mesh insert into it.
It will make a huge difference in the amount of air being drawn into the case, or just use some twist ties and place a 120mm fan on the drive cages to blow air over your graphics cards.

Nice pic Mekaw, your system looks fantastic!

Yes the new fans are better at moving air. (however this might also be due to the fact that the case has less obstruction for intake & exhaust)
The fan blade design is sickle design, much like the cooler master r4 fan blades, but flattened out more.
However I recommend to anyone who is going to purchase, or has already purchased the 650D, to take a bit more care handling the new Corsair stock fans, the blades are very very thin, and might be more fragile than the 600T stock fans.
(I'm replacing the 650D fans out anyhow, so its no big deal to me... just thought it was worth mentioning to potential buyers)
Perhaps HWC will have an upcoming video review for everyone for a better idea of what this case is all about.
I can only say so much before putting people to sleep.

Sorry I don't mean to drag this thread off topic.
