Default Corsair 600T Graphite Case Mod Project

I recently installed a window in another 600T for a customer and posted a D-i-y guide on my blog, Install window in Corsair 600T Graphite Mid Tower. | Case Mod Blog

Review added 9/06/10
YouTube - Corsair 600T Graphite Mid Tower Case Review, by mnpctech.com

I've got an exclusive preview of the 600T for you with HD video review to follow in another day or two before I perform the transformation :dremel:

I would describe the theme I'm creating as "Sci-Fi or Futuristic Military Equipment Cargo Carton" that has seen some action in the field. No bullet holes on this one tho, I want to create the illusion of it being indestructible. The drawings are only Conceptual. The final piece will be slightly different and much more detailed. A large portion of the construction will involve cnc milling PVC sheets.

I will debut a brand new custom LED lighting system for this project, compliments of I&H Accessories

600T is currently en route to online retailers and will retail between $149.99 - $159.99
I've heard that some online retailers are already taking pre-orders, for less.

The following is from Corsair's website

Graphite Series 600T Manufacturer Product Information

The Graphite Series 600T is a mid-tower in height, but inside it’s positively cavernous. Easily accommodate even the longest graphics cards in the industry due to the reconfigurable hard drive bays. The increased space behind the motherboard tray allows clean, uncluttered cable routing. Up to six hard drive caddies, each of which can accommodate SSDs and standard mechanical disks, sit below the four 5.25" tool-free optical drive bays. If that weren’t enough, you can remove the top panel 200mm fan and install a 240mm radiator and dual 120mm fans for a quick watercooling upgrade.
Features for Builders

Corsair innovated cable routing with the Obsidian Series™ cases, and the Graphite Series features the same ingenious design. Pre-cut holes in the motherboard tray with rubber grommets and plenty of room behind the motherboard to route cables for a clean, uncluttered interior. The optical drive bays are tool-free, the side panels easily detach with the built-in latch mechanisms, and the integrated fan controller allows you to choose between quiet operation or maximum cooling performance.
Features include

* Twin 200mm cooling fans with white LEDs for excellent cooling
* Eight expansion slots provides you flexibility for multiple graphics card solutions
* Unique cable routing holes guarantees you a clean and clutter-free installation
* Integrated fan controller, for up to four fans, gives you the choice of noise vs. performance
* Tool-free optical drive installation makes building your system faster than ever
* CPU backplate cutout makes upgrading your CPU heatsink easy
* 2.5” and 3.5” hard drive compatibility for up to 6 drives — straight out of the box!
* Two year warranty with Corsair’s world-class customer service and technical support

I personally like the Ammobox/military Mods, looking forward to seeing this one done.

I didn't even know Corsair is making a 600, lol.. good deal.

I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.

OK, Bill has taken pictures and the case does not have any MNPCTech awesomeness modding happening yet!

Damn, I had to subscribe to this work of art in progress.

This guy's review sucked! Bill's review was much more entertaining and informative too! I personally thought this was just yet another whinging pommy who's just hard to please! It was like 20mins of agony with him talking about not been able to do this or that with this case and yet he still gets a few things wrong!

As I commented in the reviews section where Bill posted his video review, I totally agree with him that the case is fantastic and with a few extra tweaks it would be even better!

Yah, i found him annoying.

Seems like he just woke up, cranky like hell and force to do a review about the case.

Although he did bring up some good points, nonetheless... annoying.

He has some good ideas, but he also has some biased ideas that make him look like an idiot only thinking for himself. Who the hell wants a grommet sticking out the back i/o section of their case, just so those few early adapters of usb3.0 can have their way 0.5% better? Corsair did a very fine job with this case, the usb3.0 pci bracket is perfectly fine, they also made it a standard ATX case, so if this idiot wants to have a 240mm and a 120mm, go buy a fricking 800/700d that's made for WC. Again only thinking for himself. Many people (myself included) love this case and the spacing is just perfect, make it any bigger and it'd be a deal-breaker.
