    Default Questions about PC-D600 Case

    (1) Does the PC-D600 support the SSI CEB motherboard form factor? I recall seeing a news release that says that it does, but the PC-D600 page on lian-li.com does not mention this form factor. We plan to use an Asus P9X79-E WS motherboard.

    (2) Is there any way to get a left side panel without a window? We would like a side panel with sound proofing.

    Thanks.

    Hi Burnt Orange - Longhorns fan I'm guessing?

    1) Yes, it will. The standoffs may have to be adjusted though.

    2) I'm afraid the window panel is the only panel available for now.

    Thanks for answering, Lian Li Tech. Very helpful. I guess we can try the case and apply sound absorber if necessary. Maybe you could make a suggestion to Lian Li to offer a solid side panel on the D600. Go Longhorns!

    Really excited about the PC-D600WA. Add me as another vote for Lian Li to offer a solid side panel on the D600. More questions:

    (3) Why isn't there venting under the PSU? Would have been better to have the PSU draw in cool outside air.

    (4) Are the side panels interchangeable?

    Thanks.

    Hi Gigabyter,

    Thanks for your questions.

    (3) Why isn't there venting under the PSU? Would have been better to have the PSU draw in cool outside air. - With three 140mm fans blowing air across the compartment of the PC-D600 with the power supply, there is enough unrestricted airflow in the compartment according to our tests that it was not needed. The power supply sits pretty high off the case floor due to the rubberized rails, and since there aren't any hard drives blocking airflow in this compartment, fresh air isn't a problem.

    (4) Are the side panels interchangeable? - They indeed are.

    Thanks so much! I assume the PSU rubberized rails are for noise control. I can think of an advantage with this PSU mounting orientation: No PSU bottom intake filter to clean! More questions:

    (5) Can the "USB3.0 X4 / HD Audio" unit be repositioned to the bottom slot? I'd like to reposition the HDD cages to the top slots and put everything else in the bottom slots (USB3.0 X4 / HD Audio, optical drives, etc.).

    (6) Is there any way to order a "replacement" solid (right side) panel?

    (7) Is there sufficient clearance to apply sound dampening to the side panels?

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for posting your questions, Gigabyter. We seem to be thinking along the same lines.

    I like your angle about the right side panel. Lian-Li does sell several replacement side panels, so that may be an option.

    What drew us to the D600 is the external 5 1/4 inch bays. We still use two optical drives a lot and want to be able to also install a fan controller with knobs and also an I/O panel. Therefore, we need four bays. After further thought, having the straight-through airflow across the motherboard seems to be a real benefit. (We use air cooling to avoid the hassle of water cooling.)

    I know that all the "experts" say to install the power supply so that it takes in outside air. But then you have the problem of needing a dust filter, especially when the power supply is on the bottom. Besides, it used to be that almost all PCs exhausted inside air through the power supply. Based on this, I've always installed the power supply to take in inside air and have never had a problem. It provides a little extra motherboard cooling.

    You are welcome Mr. Orange. We are most definitely thinking similarly.


    Mounting the PSU to intake outside air potentially will result in lower PSU fan noise due to likely lower fan RPMs, but at least there is one less filter to clean.


    My main concern about this case is noise. I don't want to hear it when idling which is why I'm looking at applying some sound deadening. Of course, I don't want to compromise cooling.


    I've never used water cooling before but this case cries out for a nice big 280 or 420 rad. I wonder if such a solution would be quieter than a big 'ol HSF. I'm looking at the Corsair H110 and am wondering if it would be best to mount it front left or right rear.


    Do you have a particular HSF in mind? The Captherm Systems MP1120 would be my 1st choice but don't know when it will be available.

    Gigabyter, thanks for the tip about the CapTherm MP-1120. I follow PC components off and on, but had missed that one. If it is as good at cooling as their tests indicate, it sounds like this would be ideal for me. I've been using a Noctua cooler with the quietest fans I could find for five years and planned to do the same for this new build. A big problem is finding one that clears the RAM on the motherboard.
