If this is true, and what Sky said is true also it should be a simple mode to replace the Variable Resistor with a larger OHM value one to make the voltage difference more 'smooth'.

I, for one, welcome our Corsair case overlords. I have now found a soon-to-be replacement for this ugly HAF

I have worked with the HAF and ATCS and a few other CM cases, but the 800D I have just feels like a higher quality build than any case I have worked with. I have not worked on an Lian Li or a few other high end case makers.

Any ideas on how to do that?

Pretty nice review. I have to admit that Corsair 600T series are very nice. I am the proud owner of a 600T black and I love working in it. Fan controller is also working very good but I have to say that the 200MM fan are junk. Both died on me and the replacement done so. At least corsair impressive service are sending out a brand new case :)

I would like to see corsair get into the HTPC world like silverstone with the lascala and grandia grandia series.

Did you get the side panel? I have the black and it is great for cable management. I haven't had any problems with the 200mm so far but the top one really doesn't move as much air as i would like it to.

Nop, still using the full steel panel on mine.

The one thing I don't like about the 600T cases is they come with 4 front USB ports and not every board supports this. So you end up with 2 extra ports not being used.

Just stop using Asus? All the mobo I got since my first homebuilt computer were supporting 4 USB.

Arrow Corsair 600T Special Black

Just noticed the other day on Newegg that they started to carry the Black version of the White version. At the moment, it is even cheaper then the original 600T (black), not to mention the 600T Special White:
Corsair Graphite Series 600T CC600TM
But now there is no need to order a seperate side panel; if only Corsair did the reverse for the 650D.

MSI shares this problem too.
