MAIN OVERVIEW FEATURES:
Pros: Just like the title says - this case is an absolute monster, but in a good way. It has plenty of drive bays, fans, Corsair's excellent and well thought out cable management system, it has built-in support for USB 3.0 and a fan controller - you can even add Corsair's hydro coolers like the H100 without breaking a sweat. Adding and removing hard drives is literally a snap - you just pull out the drawers, insert the drives, load the drawers back in and plug your SATA cables - you're set! Adding 5.25" drives isn't a challenge either - slide the drives in, and lock them in place, that's it. There's plenty of interior room in this thing too - it will handle all the largest video cards on the market (with removable HD cages, at that), it will handle the biggest PSUs, heatsinks, fans, you name it. There was a lot of great thought that went into this case and it's one of the best on the market for that reason.
Cons: Extremely tight, tight fit for big heat sinks and fans like the Silver Arrow or the Noctua D14 - watch out as you maybe have a 0.5" - 1" gap from the top of the fan to the case fan. The case fans (front and top) are also a bit of a pain to get working at first. After calling and e-mailing Corsair's tech support for the longest time I finally figured out that any Y-fan cable to PSU would do the trick. The fan controller is a huge pain to install and you don't really need it - it's not really worth the extra effort. It's also a huge and extremely heavy case - don't get this one if you plan on transporting your computer to any LAN parties or events for an extended period of time.
Pros: Aesthetics, the wide demensions which prevents the cables routed through the back from bending/pushing up hard on the side panel, the intuitive PSU bracket adjuster, thumb screws on the pci covers, I like the white LED's vs red or blue, push panels to clean dust filters on the front, top, and underneath the PSU. Good Quality Grommets and well placed. Adjustable Hard Drive Cage Location.
Cons: -USB3 port on the front should have been a header cable to plug into boards that will eventually support them, and two with that over the iEEE1394 port.
-Documentation seemed a little erratic but just remember that you use the motherboard screws to screw in the 3.5 inch hard drives to the slide out trays. I didn't screw mine in and I could hear the drive vibrating while working hard.
-LED on/off for the 200mm fans would have been nice but not really a neccesity since the white lights are not overly bright (well done Corsair)
I agree with others that the fan dial doesn't seem to really kick in until the knob is past 50% turned, but not really a big deal.
Overall Review: Besides the USB3 thing this case is a builder's dream. The Graphites and Obsidian cases outclass the others imo. I love my antec 1200 but this thing is a step above that more than a few aspects.
Rig: Corsair H70 Cooler, i5 2500k, Asus PVZ68 Pro board, 16gb GSkill DDR 3 1600mhz CL8 (Blue Modules),HIS IceQ Radeon 6870, 2TB Hitachi 7200rpm 64mb cache, ssd soon to try out smart response technology :)
Pros: Wide: this thing will handle the bigger CPU coolers with ease. Easy 5.25" and 3.5" drive mounting system. Plenty of USB 2.0 connectors on top. Black interior looks sharp against the white case. Fantastic cable routing options. Tons of room to hide excess PSU cables.
Cons: Internal USB 3.0 connector for front panel should be a 20-pin, rather than the male A connector. Documentation is seriously lacking. SSD mounting options do exist, but could be better.
Overall Review: In the video description, the presenter gives the most ridiculous solution for connecting the USB 3.0 male A connector the motherboard. Don't do that. Just don't. Instead, do a Google search for "20 pin usb 3.0 female". Within the first couple of results you will find a 20-pin female to female A connector adapter for about $3.00. Silverstone also makes a decent solution--CP09--however, it's pricier and has one additional connector that will go the waste in this configuration.
I would rather have seen a front panel eSATA connector than the firewire one provided.
Take a look on the Corsair site for support on this case. There you will find a link to a forum post that covers the fan controller connectors (something that really should've been in the documentation).
Aside from my few minor complaints, this is a really nice, quality-built case.
Pros: Amazing Design, nothing new to say that others already havent expressed
* Unparalleled Cable Management.

* etc etc..
Cosair Made me fan! they listen to the enthusiast and deliver what more can i say
Cons: Little Price, but its top of the line in design and looks and features. this is for the enthusiast!
Anyone need help building a box? this is a pure joy to assemble and look awesome at after the work has been done.
Overall Review: Bigger Fan Controller on the next box, Higher Wattage, perhaps a replacement for it, if they make the case modular, different mesh, that would be cool. Change parts.. get HEPA filter inserts..
think out of the box. they clearly have in the box mastered :)
maybe more u
Pros: First. This case is large and really has the room of a full tower. The cable management options are the best I have ever seen, I mean this thing just echos quality.
Despite most cases trash fans, these fans are very solid. I don't know about you but when I have built systems in the past I planned on buying fans at the same time with the cases because normally case fans are junk.
This case is user friendly and comes with amazing options, great engineering here.
Great options for future expansion.
Cons: As great as this case is, the outside plastic seems to be the weak link.
I feels light and honestly I expected more from the price tag.
Bought much cheaper cases in the past, that certainly felt more durable.
The window itself sometimes generates static on the outside as well, I wouldn't have put my decal on if I would have known that and kept plastic wrap on.
Also for the price I feel the fan control knob should have been digital over the dial itself, there are cases in this price range that provide that.
Finally even though there is options to add fans, and the stock fans are good, this case isn't the best option for cooling.
Don't get me wrong cooling isn't a problem but it's merely pretty good. I'd give it a 7 out of 10.
A friend of mine had to cut his top grill off for better airflow because the case filters work as a grill which rests on top of a grill.
The front is like that too, you press the filters on the corners and they come right off but you have yet another grill
Overall Review: This is a massive tower, with plenty of room and the best cable management out there for my money.
However if cooling is important to you and you aren't going the water cooling route, there are better options for the price tag.
This case in certainly one of the best but I feel there are better looking white cases.
There are just some minor flaws that hold it back from total greatness but it's still certainly worth the money.
Pros: Truly Remarkable Case. I was always disappointed with Mid-Towers due to the lack of space and quality. Moreover, in Five years that hasn’t changed much. Most are made with even worst quality than before, and are nothing but fancy Carnival Side-Shows. The Corsair 600T is the exception:
*Love the Spacious interior. Plenty of space for everything (well almost).
*The Built-in cable management is some of the best I’ve seen in a Mid.
*The inside of the case is made of good quality Steel. Not cheap ABS breaks-plastic.
*Fits almost any size power supply. Definite plus for enthusiast.
*Tool-less Hard-Drive Mounting system was quite easy. Better than most out there. Still nothing beats good ol’ secured screws.
*Case cables are sheathed in black cabling. Makes them blend in the background.
*Good Quality Feet. Can't tell you how important that is for a Mid. Most will probably keep it on the floor though. Still nice to have a dust-free option, without marking furniture.
Cons: Weren't joking when they said this was like a Stormtrooper. The outward plastic can barely protect against a Blaster blast, much less a small kick underneath a desk. It’s that fragile and was expecting better quality at the price.
*Lack of Documentation. Comes with a Quick-Start guide but leaves much to be desired. Only explains the features really.
*The Clear Side Panel does make a lot of noise. It’s tolerable, but annoying. Assuming it is expanding and contracting due to temperature variations.
*The Tool-Less 5” bay brackets only work for DVD/CD/BR drives. They do not work with Fan Controllers or other display bay devices.
*Built-In Fan controller is nothing spectacular. Not Very responsive. Only changes speed in wide increments.
*Do yourself a favor and ditch the back and top stock fans. Both Hardly push any air even with built-in fan controller on max. Adding two high quality 120mm fans on top help significantly.
*Still a Mid-Tower at the End of the Day.
Overall Review: I was very impressed. Worked in almost all sorts of Towers. From the 900, Stacker, TT Sword, Obsidian, Skeleton, and even cheap-o brand ones and thought I seen it all. Had to downgrade a Super to a Mid due to a recent move. Lacked the space, so figured I’ll do some research. At first, I was not impressed. Mid-Towers are not getting much spectacular and actually seem to be getting worst. From poor build quality, lack of grounding, and being more like Circus shows instead of functional houses of sensitive equipment. Was very disappointed until I saw this one. It’s very easy to work in. Plenty of elbow space to get in and do what you want. No tight corners anywhere. Unfortunately, Corsair outcheaped themselves on certain areas. The outward plastic is very soft and nicks easily, the fan controller is cheap, and the Power & Reset buttons are poor quality. Overall, you’ll be hard pressed finding something better out there. Just be aware of the cons and you’ll be satisfied.
Pros: The case is spacious, clean, well built, and full of features any PC can appreciate. This is an amazing product
Cons: White is a delicate color to work with; it can look great, but it isn't for anyone. Take care when working with the unit, unlike a black or silver case dings will show. Also, I would have like to have some of the paneling made with a stronger plastic, but nothing worth taking off an egg - it is still better then what most manufacturers use.
Overall Review: Corsair is quite possibly the nicest company to work with that I have ever encountered. With this case I was doing some modding and I accidentally cut into one of the cables for the front panel. With no hesitation Corsair sent me a one - no shipping the part back, no paying for the item or for shipping it to me (which only took 3 days with UPS)... Great customer service, quality products, and decent prices are what people want - and Corsair delivers.
Pros: This case was engineered very beautifully. Elegant and simple, the Corsair Graphite 600T is going to be my case for the next decade AT LEAST. Perfect. This case is a showpiece, guests in my home are stunned at the sight. I will certainly continue to purchase from Corsair, as in the case I have equipped the Corsair H80 and have Corsair XMS3 memory and Corsair power supply as well. Way to go Corsair! I am proud as a technical individual to see such a fine product being sold. Very impressed, would give it a 10 rating if possible. This was more than well worth the money I spent, seriously I do not feel that I wasted a single penny, because every time I look at the case I am floored.
Cons: Are you serious?
