Inside the Corsair 600T

As shown before, the side panels of the 600T are removed by pushing two latches available at each panel. In Figure 15, you can see inside the Corsair 600T. The motherboard tray has a big hole around the area where the CPU is installed, allowing access to the backplate of the CPU cooler, so you can replace the cooler without having to remove the motherboard. The motherboard tray has several holes protected with rubber covers for you to route and hide cables behind it. The motherboard tray also has several metallic clips for you to fasten cables using cable ties.

The case comes with black thumbscrews for you to fasten expansion cards. The top fan can be removed if you want to install a 240 mm liquid cooling radiator. The case supports video cards up to 13” (330 mm) long, or up to 18.1” (460 mm) if the top hard drive cage is moved or removed.

In the 600T, you can install the power supply with its bottom fan facing up or facing down, so you will have to decide if you want the power supply to be pulling cool air from outside the case (fan facing down) or hot air from inside the case (fan facing up). As already explained, this case has vents with an external air filter on its bottom panel, matching the location of the power supply fan. The power supply compartment has a bracket with thumbscrews for better matching the size of your power supply.
