Default Replacing fans on my Corsair 600T SE White

Hey guys,

The stock case fans on my Corsair 600T SE White are kind of "meh" (76cfm max) and I'd like to replace them with something that gives better airflow and heat dissipation into the ambient.

I was looking at the Bitfenix Spectre Pro for the two 200mm front/top and single 120mm rear fans. They seem to give great airflow yet not so noisy.

(EDIT: Just realized that the case fans are 20mm thick, vs. 30mm for most others...)

Any better suggestions?

You can use any 200mm fan in the front if you move the drive cage inward but if you do this you have to remove the top drive cage though. Here's a pic that might help ya out.

you can also fit 2 120mm fans in the front (works pretty well) and the top is meant to handle that as well so theres another option

Thanks for reply! Would two 120mm fans offer better cooling than one 200mm fan?

When I used my 600t (still have it actually) it did seem to push more air ( used 2 cooler master.r4 fans)then the.factory 200mm while still.fitting infront of the drive cages

Well right now I'm thinking of replacing the top 200mm exhaust fan with TWO NF-F12 fans, and also the rear 120mm exhaust with a single NF-F12. I may or may not do the same with the front intake fan but since I need all hdd drive cages to stay in I may not have room to fit in a 25mm thick fan.
