Im planning to buy Corsair 600T (white version). It comes with a meshed side where you can attach 4x120mm fans.
As (i think) the airflow of the 600T is not that great (or is it?) i feel that i will have to attach the meshed side with 4x120mm fan intaking just to get positive air flow inside the case.
Also planning to change the exhaust 120mm (included) to something else and also changing the top 200mm (included) with something else.

What 120mm fans would you recommend? Preferrably with a white LED but not really neccessary. Just needs to be quiet, good air mover and if lucky, cheap.

Also is there anybody out there with a 600T and have changed the fans? With what and how do you think the airflow is going.
Another, is there anybody out there that have not changed the fans at all? How's the airflow?
Last one, im planning to either get the H100 or Noctua NHD14; but if i go with H100 what fans would you recommend to replace the stock ones with?

Thanks in advanced

Replace the stock H100 fans for these - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Or Noctua NF-F12's :) 

Replace the case fans with these - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

However, the 600T already has decent airflow I believe, but if you want better, there's an abundance of replacements if you don't mind for the LEDs.

On a side note - Get the NH-D14 ;)  it's easily one of my favorite air coolers and it'll perform better than the H100 for the price tag :)

Thank you for that. I know the NFF12s are amazing but the price! Its like £20 each here, and put it on push/pull =£80 :o 
Sure these quiet ones are good but wont the performance ones do a better job? and the 12dBA really be noticable?

Again, Sure these are quiet but will they actually move the air? Or shall i just go for the performance ones; will the 9dBA really be that much louder?

Also do you have experience with the 600T? Which fans would you recommend changing?

Unfortunately, I don't have experience with the 600T, however, I do have experience with the Carbide 500R and Obsidian 550D cases. From personal experience, the default fans included move quite a lot of air considering they're...well, stock! :lol: 

However, if you are fond of silence, I will recommend the quiet edition fans (For SP and AF series) as they still move quite a lot of air! :)  I would take the sound rating with a grain of salt, they may or may not be 9dBA in reality, however, I think the performance edition of the fans come with a resistor cable, so you can choose to run them at a lower RPM.

Be sure to use the SP series for your H100 if you decide to go that route, however, as the AF series won't perform as well as the default H100 fans.

Use Noctua's (eg.NF-F12 or NF-P12 or NF-S12B) NF-S12B moves the most air but does not have good static pressure but for case fans they are great. Noctua's are also very quiet

Thank you mocchan for the recommendations.

Unfortunately timarp000 Noctua fans especially NF-F12 are really expensive, they're £20 each and the Corsair 2 pack is like ~£25; and that's for two. Thank you for the recommendation though.

Still looking for someone who've had experience with the 600T. It would be really great to get an opinion and insight from someone who've had experience with the 600T

I'd also go with the corsair SP's for the rad and AF's for case airflow although cougars or many others would do in that respect .. The noctuas I'd definately use if your never let anyone look inside ( gads there ugly ) .. also for something like $ 35.00 you can get a ...... and its WHITE ! That way you can tweak the noise too cfm level yourself .. best of luck :) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thank you rufus.

What im looking for now is some insight from some one who've had or has a 600T. Which stock fans did you change and how is the temperature? Or how is the temperature inside if you havent changed any of the stock fans?

put silverstone air penetrators on my storm trooper side panel--2 should be enough on the side panel

and on my h80 rad

not the cheapest fans but great quality and still not too loud even at 1500rpm and move plenty air

and great leds--they are in the fan hub not the frame so give a circle of light not just lines of light

come in different colour leds including white

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/120mm-silverstone-air-pe...

the picture there doesnt do them justice

heres mine in red--poor quality photo on my phone but the 2 on the left are the silverstones and the one on the right the

original coolermaster for comparison

also came with voltage reducers for those without a fan controller

Fractal do some very nice white bladed fans, with good air flow and very quiet.

I'm a fan of Scythe fans, particularly their Slipstream line. The price is reasonable, only $10 in the States, and they have a lot of speed/CFM options ( or you can get a PWM model too. ) No LED models, though.
