As I said earlier in this review all Corsair products either are best in class or right up there, so does the 600T make the cut? It sure does, it is everything that a case should be. Starting out with the build quality the internal steel chassis feels very strong and sturdy. There is some plastic on this case, but it feels very solid. The case doors come off very easily and the latch system works great and I wouldn’t expect the latches to break either.
As far as features go this case has quite a few. Starting with cooling you have 3 fans (1x 120mm, 2x 200mm). These fans can all be controlled via the fan controller on top of the case and the 2 200mm fans have white LED’s, which gives the case a little style. It was nice to have 4 USB 2.0 ports, a USB 3.0 port and a firewire port all on the top of the case for easy access. Each of the hard drive bays slide out and support both 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch bays. Also you are able to move the top cage down for better airflow and to support longer graphics cards. The front and top fan filters can be removed by simply pushing on them. Then you can clean them without having to worry about anything else in your system.
Installation could not be easier with this case. It has to be one of the easiest installs that I’ve done in a while. If you are installing 3.5-inch hard drives and optical drives the installation is tool-less which makes installation fast and easy. With all of the routing holes cable management is made easy and you can make the inside of your case look professional without much work at all. Corsair also provides many cable ties to make moving cables out of the way easy.
I really did not have many issues with this case except that the 6pin CPU power cable for the motherboard just fit. I actually had to remove the 120mm fan on the case to get it in without scratching up my hand on my CPU cooler. It would have been nice to have an extender included with the case.
The Graphite Series 600T Case sells for $159 at my favorite online retailer. At this price it is a bit more expensive than some other cases, but with all the features and build quality the case is definitely worth the money. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Corsair Graphite Series 600T Case a 9 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award.
