    well finally got my 600t push/pull finished up. Was a complete nightmare to set up but looks like it turned out alright in the end. Also changed around a few things like got rid of the hdd mounts that i didnt need in there. The 3570k is sitting at 4.5 ghz at the moment stable for 4 hours then got bored and shut it down! I wont post the rest of my build bc i did on an earlier page in this thread, and its mostly in my sig too. Next step is a new gpu someday.

    Shot of the push/pull:

    Is it really worth it to do push/pull with such ultrathin fans?

    Push/pull does increase static pressure (but not airflow).
    I prefer shrouding radiators for push instead. Using the H-series as intakes is a silly idea to me, no matter that it's marginally more effective; I'd prefer to have more than the rear exhaust actually exhausting, if I have a non-reference GPU.

    Nice 600t. You can remove the plastic hard drive spacer from the bottom if it starts to bug you. Just pull the front fascia off.

    I posted mine a few pages back (403).

    I'm not very tech savvy so I'll probably miss out some details but I built myself a new rig recently


    i7 2600k @ 3.4ghz
    16gb ram
    64gb SSD (now I realise this was too small, going to upgrade it)
    Radeon 7970 OC graphics card by Gigabye
    I know nothing about motherboards but mine is: Gigabyte Z68XP-UD4

    Criticism is very welcome as I love keeping my rig updated and having a smooth running machine.

    I have never done any overclocking. For some reason this runs Diablo3 like crap. Worse than my old rig which wasn't a gaming machine at all and had 4 gig ram / 6850 graphics. Runs other games beautifully though.

    Its a good time to upgrade. The price per gigabyte has gone as low as $.50 per. I'm going to upgrade soon too when mechanical hdds go back down to pre-flood prices.

    You should be running D3 a lot better with that. Turn Vertical Sync on and see what it runs like. And make sure in the control panel that it's not using the iGPU on the CPU instead of the 7970.

    Got some new fans in to replace my stock h100 fans, and i have to say they're amazing.

    they're the corsair SP 120mm fans. They're quieter and keep my 3930k temps 2ish degrees cooler on idle. And if anyone notices my 1 empty dim, its cause for some reason after I built this comp one of my G.skill sticks didn't want to work anymore. lol

    The standard fans with the H100 aren't great. I replaced all mine with beQuiet! Shadow Wings, fantastic pieces of kit.

    Why's it too bad? It can fit a baffling amount of stuff, ie 2x120 rad and 3x120rad.

    I love big cases (thats why i got a Cosmos 2) and i doubt my watercooling system would fit in that case.
