Corsair Graphite 600T Case and Airflow Pro Memory Preview

Corsair is showing off a bunch of products for the very first time this year at Computex 2010 here in Taipei! One of the most interesting is their first case in the Graphite series that will be called the 600T. The Corsair Graphite 600T is a mid-tower PC case that is due to come out to the market later this summer for right around $150. Corsair also shows off fully modular power supplies and brings LED memory lights back from the dead with Airflow Pro.

I'm liking the look of the case, and the power supply

Very nice design, with clean lines and no garish stupid looking super LED dumbness about it.

In 6 weeks I am building a new PC and I have been looking through case after case on NewEgg trying to find something I like, and I have failed; but this looks good.

Price Range is ok if a bit pricey. It is bigger inside then my Antec 300 I have now and should fit a 5870 easily, which my current case supposedly cant.

My 300s front filter just collects thick dust non stop and cleaning it requires removing the door and front panel and I am rather sick of it. So that easily removable front filter in the video is just so awesome to me right now.

I hate LEDs, I hate Side Panel Windows, and I hate Doors, and I hate complicated dust cleaning!; I love a clean design with solid lines, and a roomy interior so this Corsair Graphite 600T is looking dam good right now.

Wait a minute I cant see it with the door on, noooo, please no window, please no window.

The Graphite looks very nice! I especially like the way the hard drive cages can be remove, and relocated. But I have to wait and see what that one Cooler Mater case looks like before I arrive at any conclusions. :)

I found this funny, by looking at the pictures. The case isn't setup like Corsair's recommended airflow for the H50. Any idea if the fan on the cooler was blowing out of the case?

you can see the fan is sucking air in from outside the case, as H50 instructions dictate

But the top fan is pushing air out and the intake fan is pulling air in.

so air can't go from the rad straight out the top fan with the front acting as a normal intake? positive airflow, keep in mind that setup is using a single fan on the back side of the radiator so it's not like its creating huge airflow in the case

Cool air in the front across the drives, cool air from the rear across the rad, all being sucked out the top. Heat goes up and out the top.

It was my understanding they wanted the rear and top to intake and the side and front to exhaust.
