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.

Corsair - Some of the most thought out cases in the world. They really make building a system fun. The rubber grommets around the cable management holes really add to it. Hands down, Corsair is my favorite case manufacture.

This case is Awesome! I've stuck mainly with the mid's and sacrificed in a few areas that they seem to have improved with this case, mainly the room behind the motherboard tray and the awesome cable management holes. someday I WILL own this case lol.

Its almost hard to choose between this and the NZXT Phantom. Both cases are awesome.

I just looked at the one you mentioned and it is pretty nice and both are similar but I'd still choose the 600T for myself, based on the few differences on the inside I like, the main one being the white fans instead of the blue, it's kind of refreshing in a way. :lol:

lol at calling one line Plagiarized. I am glad to see that I am not the only one who feels the case looks like a Scout Trooper but I did not take it from Scott. This was something that was discussed even at CES when we first saw the case.
