Over the past 13 years Modding has outgrown it's identity as a hobby and become it's own culture. I enjoy reporting on whats happening within this "Modding Culture" by sharing mod news, custom builds and product reviews from around the world and unique products aimed at PC builders and Modders. Whether you just like reading about custom PCs, case mods, watching videos or even the occasional movie! I think you'll really enjoy the following the Zoo!

I recently reviewed the new Corsair 600T Graphite Mid Tower Case


Final Thoughts

Overall Design & Construction is Excellent, It’s steel, but feels similar to Aluminum
Excellent Cable Management, anyone can make a cable job look nice in this case.
User Features, fan controller, option for 240 Radiator, adjusts to different length PSUs
Plenty of space, with room to accommondate larger video cards, removable HD cages layout options
Good Filtering, the entire front is filtered, with easy access for cleaning the filters.
Security, with discreet lock for the access panel.


WISH LIST

Window in Access panel version
3rd 200mm intake fan in the Access panel
Metal HD trays, instead of Plastic. fyi: Plastic releases on the optical bays are very durable.
360 Radiator option in the top panel. The space is there... just need to revise the exterior trim design
Color options, at least Silver.
Not going to complain about the $149.99 - $159.99 price tag, I think it’s very reasonable.

The review is great!
As for the case itself, its certainly depends on everyones needs and demands.. For me the NZXT Tempest Evo is unmatched in terms of features per buck

That case is surprisingly inexpensive! Makes me wish I needed a case... Unfortunately for corsair, I bought a MM Extended Ascension this past spring and I've got a Cosmos S and HAF 932 sitting in my garage.

Thanks for watching the 600T review and commenting guys! I predict it will be very successful for Corsair.

I agree. The big O has nice specs but the case's physical appearance is lacking - even more so when you consider it's supposed to go in your living room. They need to send it off to mnpctech for some work in a big way.

Not that it is not a nice looking case, it is just that it is too "busy" or maybe too "industrial" looking for my tastes. How are the temps in that thing?

I'm still alive!! and now the Chief-In-Editor of The Mod Zoo, which was born from ashes of CaseModBlog.

I love these CaseLabs Mercury S3 mITX cases, and they're Made in USA!

I'm really impressed with the fit & finish of NZXT's new H630 full tower case. The design focuses on offering many options for both air and liquid cooling enthusiasts, More details here, http://themodzoo.com...ower-review-r46

I loved the Cooler Master N200, but will its bigger brother N600 live up to the reputation? Time to take a look and see how it fares with the Zoo Keepers.
