Well I went to Canada Computers today and bought their last Corsair 600T.

They had a deal on Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB 1600Mhz CL9 for $45.99. Of course they were sold out and only one other location had it. It was late and wouldn't be able to make it today. I reserved it and will be picking it up tomorrow.

I picked up a Corsair H100 today off Kijiji. My question is, the only way to run a push pull system on the Corsair H100 is to modify the case right?

Question #2 - I want to replace the stock Corsair fans. What are great fans for the job? I keep hearing about Gentle Typhoons. Anything compare?

The rest of the parts should trickle in over the next week or two.

You should be able to mount the rad and fans inside the 600t but you might have to move the fans to the other side of the grill. As for replacing the fans you mean the ones that come with the h100? if so yea the GT's are a exceptional fan

What do you mean by removing the fans to the other side of the grill? I keep reading how mounting fans to the bottom of the rad, while in the case gets in the way of the Mobo and RAM.

Okay you know the grill at the top of the case? where the 200mm fan sits? Well you can fit 2x120mm fans there but you might have to mod the grill that covers that as some fans are thicker than others (hoped this helped)

Right, I already did that last night actually. My real question is, can I fit a 360 rad and fans INSIDE the case without interfering with the Mobo and RAM? (after modding the top of the case?)

Well Spudnik in that thread has the rad and fans installed underneath along with fans installed in the grill area. That's why I asked. So, it seems someone has pulled it off, I just don't know how.

I reserved the last set of Corsair Vengeance 8GB Blue from CanadaComputers in all of Ontario. :D

Boy am I lucky. lol

Still trying to find an I5 2500k. Anyone got one for sale?

Well he used a thick rad and had to modify a vrm heatsink on his mobo but to fit a triple rad he had to disasemble the entire thing and cut the top to fit the rad

Ya, I was planning on doing the same mods to my 600T.

I already removed the plastic under the top grill area.

Just installed the Corsair H100 to test fit. Love the look.

I don't have a Mobo to test the fit of the rad and fans underneath though so I can't make any judgements.

Well my slim xspc 240 rad is about the thickness of a 25mm fan (closer to 30) so the whole package is about 60mm wide with fans attached. So a regular double thick rad will have clearance issues no matter what on this case
