Corsair Graphite Series 600T Mid-Tower PC Case ReviewWed, Sep 15, 2010 - 12:00 AM
Installing parts into the corsair Graphite 600T
The Corsair Graphite 600T comes with all that is needed to mount your parts. The accessories include wire ties, extra rubber fan isolators, screws for motherboard and 2.5” hard drives, and a set of keys.
Installing parts into the Graphite 600T was stupid easy for a mid tower. Even with all my parts in the case there is still a ton of room left. I have seen full towers with less space left.
The front power supply support was easily adjusted and holds the power supply rather well. So much so that even after removing the PSU mounting screws I had to remove the front support as well to get the PSU back out of the case. At this point is when I noticed that the bottom panel of the Graphite 600T was not as stiff as I expected it to be. If you push on the bottom panel just in front of the PSU there is a slight tin can effect. You don’t notice it unless you push in that spot, but it does do it. So far this is the only flaw I have found with the case. Even then, how often will you push dead center on the bottom panel just in front of the PSU?
There was more than enough room behind the motherboard tray of the Graphite 600T. I was able to hide all the extra wires from my power supply behind the tray.
The CPU cut out cleared the backing plate with ease and then some.
With the system fired up I took a quick shot of the system in the semi-dark room and the side panel off.
I then took rearranged the drive cages. I removed the top cage, and moved the bottom cage closer to the power supply. The white LED lighting is a real nice change of pace. Shame there isn’t a window; the white light really shows off the hardware well.
Looking from the outside in the dark the case has a nice glow to it. The screen dust filters cut down how much of the white light is getting out. Without the screens it would be way brighter, and with them it has a nice glow to it.
Keeping the white theme going the power and hard drive activity LEDs are white as well. Catching the hard drive LED at its brightest was difficult, but it is not any brighter than the power LED.
