[Rebuild] Corsie the blue Corsair 600T

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Alright Guys

Thought id share this with you. Its kinda post build log, the machine is 95% finished.

Well its been a good year since id done anything to my machine, and i was offered the opportunity to get my case repainted. So i jumped on it and stripped my rig back down. Being a uni student and having my 600T for near enough 2 years it had got a lot of abuse big scratches and scuffs all over it  and the white had started to yellow.

My 600t already had a few modifications, which included trimming the bottom of the drive cage to allow pipes through, removing all the HDD cages, Modifying the front to fit the 200mm fitting flush against the front, various extra holes added to screw the pump and SSD(Till the rebuild the SSD was screwed to the back of the motherboard tray).

In tendered modifications were to add support for a 360mm radiator at the top, along with trim down the optical cages further to improve how the insides looked. The paint I always had a thing for blue so the outside would be a BMW Custom electric blue which is found on the a 1992 BMW E30 Convertible Neon Design Special Edition. And the accents would be done in Satin and soft touch black.

All the paint work was done by friends companies, All the blue was done by a company called Rays Motors, and all the black was done by my mate Dan (which works for a development company) Big thanks to everyone over there.

Nothing flashy here i just wanted my rig to look clean.

Thanks for looking

Feedback is welcome.

And you will see the one thing that drives me mad about my rig. Fingerprints and dirt on the sidepanel.
