PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
Building a Great-Looking, High Performance System Has Never Been Easier
The Graphite Series™ 600T makes it easy to build a world-class gaming system. With excellent cooling from the dual 200mm fans, eight PCI-E expansion slots to accommodate multiple graphics cards, and plenty of room for large, power-hungry components, the Graphite Series 600T can handle just about anything you can throw at it.
Mid-Tower Size, Full-Tower Features
The Graphite Series 600T is a mid-tower in height, but inside it's positively cavernous. Easily accommodate even the longest graphics cards in the industry due to the reconfigurable hard drive bays. The increased space behind the motherboard tray allows clean, uncluttered cable routing. Up to six hard drive caddies, each of which can accommodate SSDs and standard mechanical disks, sit below the four 5.25" tool-free optical drive bays. If that weren't enough, you can remove the top panel 200mm fan and install a 240mm radiator and dual 120mm fans for a quick watercooling upgrade.
Features for Builders
Corsair innovated cable routing with the Obsidian Series™ cases, and the Graphite Series features the same ingenious design. Pre-cut holes in the motherboard tray with rubber grommets and plenty of room behind the motherboard to route cables for a clean, uncluttered interior. The optical drive bays are tool-free, the side panels easily detach with the built-in latch mechanisms, and the integrated fan controller allows you to choose between quiet operation or maximum cooling performance.

About The Graphite Series
The Graphite Series provides full-tower features in a mid-tower sized case, with an emphasis on performance and style. Whether you are an expert or on your first build, the Graphite Series is designed from the ground up to provide you with an incredible building experience. The Graphite Series proves that a high-performance case can be highly functional and look good doing it.
The 600T is indeed a mid-tower chassis, although just a bit longer and wider than most. Its steel core and plastic accents provide lots of storage and expandability options and a full-featured front panel I/O panel.
Corsair engineers have done an excellent job of incorporating the best features from the Obsidian series' cases into the 600T, including the excellent cable management scheme and fixtures. Tool-free features abound in the 600T and the side panels each sport a pair of latches for easy access to the interior goodies and the storage options are highly configurable, as we'll see a bit later.
