My System Specs

Default Corsair 600T replacement fan

As the title say, I am looking for replacement fan for my Corsair 600T. The 2 200MM to be precise. Both are dying ( a 2 month old case ) and it seems impossible to get replacement from corsair so I am looking to buy fan somewhere. Newegg seems to be the one that carry the most 200MM fan. I was looking at the Xigy to keep the white led style that the case come with ( I also love kind love it. ) But I'm open to other color if much better fan are available.
Newegg.ca - XIGMATEK Cooling System XLF XLF-F2004 200mm White LED Black Case Fan PSU Molex Adapter/extender included
Newegg.ca - 200mm

So the question is : What is the best 200MM fan on the market?

+1 for the CM 200mm fans. greater CFM than the xigmatech at a lower RPM with roughly the same noise output.

Yes, Megaflow is great! but unfortunately the CM Megaflows do not fit as we would like into the 600T
They are too thick.
Unless the user is planning on modding the case.

Xigmateks fit perfectly, I recall briefly encountering another manufacturer with 20mm slim fans, but I don't remember the name, sorry.
(I will check when I get home, I may have written it down or bookmarked the weblink)

I remember speaking to some other people who were looking at 200mm fans, but quickly came to the realization there wasn't any type of standardized design for the screw-mounting holes yet (or is there??)

Hi Martin,

Sorry for the delay in reply.

Here we go...

Thermaltakeusa**DC Fan**200mm Fans**200mm Blue LED Silent Fan : 200mm Blue LED Silent Fan AF0046

I remember I was browsing around for 200mmx200mmx20mm fans.

The only thing is, I believe that the OEM/ODM for these fans is more than likely Xigmatek.
I have not tested these particular case fans before.

So there is no guarantee they will fit.
However according to representatives on Corsair's website, they state any 200mmx200mmx20mm should fit.

I have a pair of CM Megaflows I pulled from a new HAF X 942 and replaced with blue led versions. They're new and sitting in a corner of my room begging to be used and I'll let them go at cost to a good home. From what Grampa said though, I'm not sure if they'll fit into the C600T.

The Xigmateks are good. One thing to note, though, don't even try the NZXT fans. They aren't great at moving air and are actually 192mm, not 200, and as such will not fit in anything but an NZXT case.

Hi all. I was just looking at fans for my 600T case also so thought I would chime in. I have a dremel and am not afraid to use it so... how hard would it be to make one of these 30mm thick fans work ya think? Because every 200mm x 20mm fan I see is lower CFM than the stock fans? I'm thinking about reversing the airflow they are currently in and see if that helps. I really don't want to have to put in the mesh side to mount some 120mm fans.
I have H80 cooling the CPU so that temp is fine but my system temp in the case seems a tad high most of the time and my Vid card fans kick into high gear fairly quick when I start gaming. right now it's the case is sitting at 40C/104 F which seems hot to me since the room is at 74 F ?
