Closer Look: Graphite 600T Interior
Utilizing the large internal volume afforded by a robust frame, the Corsair Graphite 600T delivers high-performance cooling features and numerous cable-routing channels to help system builders construct a system that truly stands apart from the mainstream. In this section, we'll cover the internal layout for the Graphite 600T.
Corsair includes a variety of pre-cut holes in the motherboard tray with rubber grommets, giving plenty of room behind the motherboard to route cables for an uncluttered interior. When grommets aren't necessary, such as the CPU backplate cutout, the sheet metal edges have been rolled to allow upgrading your CPU heatsink without worry of sharp edges.
There are also knock-out points above the motherboard to accommodate fan wires and other cables. An oval near the upper-rear corner of the motherboard tray allows system builders to cleanly wire power to the 4-pin P4 or 8-pin EPS motherboard receptacles. There is approximately 3/4" of clearance between the door panel and most portions of the motherboard tray, so thick primary cables will have room to flex and turn.
Corsair includes eight tool-less drive trays with the Graphite 600T. Each of these plastic trays releases from the cage by squeezing the tabs in towards the middle. Drives are fastened to the tray by using well-placed pins inserted into screw holes, instead of screws.
Users can remove the top drive cage on the Corsair Graphite 600T case, but the lower cage requires tools in the unlikely event you'd prefer not to have any trays installed. The entire cage system is cooled by a 200mm fan that is illuminated by white LEDs.
