Installation and Setup
After going over the details of the 600T, I had no doubts that installation into the case would go smoothly. Everything about the case is designed to give you easy access and with wire management in all of the right places you can look like a wire management god with no effort at all. I was extremely impressed with the room behind the motherboard tray along with the grommets to help with your wire management. Until someone designs a way to make PC components wireless, this could easily be the pentacle of wire management.
I have always said it’s the details that make or break tech products, and with the 600T there are a couple that did stand out. ALL of the screws included with the case are black in color to match the rest of the interior; you wouldn’t want your black and white storm trooper to have bright pink shoes on would you? On the other side of the fence I wasn’t impressed with the lack of an internal USB 3.0 connection. Reading around on Corsairs forums, I found that they were having problems finding suppliers who produce internal cables at a standard that wouldn’t be detrimental to performance. Even then it still sucks having to run a cable out of the back of your PC to plug into your rear I/O panel.
With no side panel fan or anything similar heatsink clearance for the 600T is great. Our high profile CoGage heatsink had more than enough clearance when installed. When hooking up the fans I was a little surprised the built in fan controller didn’t have the stock fans already hooked up. It wasn’t difficult to do, just surprising that they didn’t take care of it when putting everything together at the factory.
