Default Corsair Graphite 600T White Review Comment Thread

After Corsair released their highly acclaimed Obsidian series of cases, many knew that it would be only a matter of time until less expensive yet smaller variants became available. Those predictions came true and today Corsair has a full stable of cases from the high end Obsidian to the entry level Carbide series. The one we're looking at today however is the mid-range Graphite 600T with a little twist: this one comes in a special edition white finish and is packed with additional features.

Nice review. I like the looks of the case. How well did that fan control knob work? I thought that is a really nice feature.

I absolutely love this case (I have the graphite), but would drool over the white when I can get one for another build perhaps.

Does anyone know if the fan controller can be modified in any way? Maybe to allow even slower or even faster fan speed? The fan speed isn't making much of a difference to me IMO.

I would guess so since from my understanding it works with a simple variable resistor. However, why would you want to do that? It goes from 0-100% which is basically the range of any fan. If you wanted to overvolt a fan then that's another conversation altogether different.

Nice review, any chance doing one for the Corsair 650D?

Request noted. We have a few more to go through first but we'll try to make it happen.

Default i'd love to review the 650D!

Its been quite a joy to shoot the 600T White. I finally have all of my lighting equipment and was in use the first time with the 600T!

Assembling the case was a lot of fun as well! the cable management is just amazing with this case and the white, well, you can only appreciate it with your own sight. The quality is, Corsair quality, so no cheap plastic or steel. Very sturdy material.

Anyone with the 600T white is a lucky owner! :D

The fan controller knob works really well, but like someone in the comments said, it really is a Low-High speed fan controller. The rotation is very smooth but the difference between low to medium is fairly low.
