Probably what they are thinking with air flow. I noticed my gpu kinda sits on the memory locking tabs which I'm happy about, stealth gpu support! thumb.gif

I took mine out and don't have problems. Fan noise with filters only changes once the filter or mesh becomes a restriction though, try it with filters first.

Yeah, depending on the cooler route I go I think I will be glad for as much space as I can get - say goodbye drive cage wink.gif

Lightsout, I think you are spot on - its purpose must be directing airflow and GPU support but if you haven't had any problems then I'm happy to take your advice.

faMine, i'm starting out with an SSD but it will probably go in the bottom slot for now, though I do like the way its been mounted by the guy in the link posted by BadDad62 further up the page (attached to the side of the optical drive bays):

One question... why on earth does the front 180mm fan have two 3-pin connectors?!?

How many HDDs are you looking at fitting in there? I'm planning on 8 in mine thumb.gif

Um 6 right now. All 4 of the standard HD bays and 1 in each of the expansion slots. I know there are 2x HD per 5.25 out there though so 8 will be fine!

Audio Setup: foobar2000 > Digital (Coax) > Gamma 2 DAC > M^3 Amp > Denon D5000

Water Cooling: Laing/DD 355 (3.25) > XSPC Quad Radiator > XSPC Raystorm Waterblock > AquagraFX GTX 580 Waterblock

I totally know where you're coming from. Just when I thought I am done with my tj07 after a month of switching stuff in and out, I switched to the tj08 biggrin.gif
