I had about the same reaction when I got mine in a couple days ago =).

Been lurking for a few weeks and decided to go ahead and go with the Silverstone for my new (albeit partial) build. I had been originally eyeing the Fractal Arc Mini or Define Mini but when I broke out the measuring tape I realized it was the same size height and depth wise and wider than my mid-tower HP from 5 years ago.450

After slicing my hands grabbing the hardware from my slimline I'm absolutely loving how quiet the TJ08 and graphics card are, while keeping great temps (for being air cooled). Since this is my first build, it's a bit messy in there right now but I'll be uploading some more pics when I get around to it.

Anyhow, thanks for the info and ideas, keep it up =)

Making my watercooling order for my TJ08 today.

looking at the Magicool Extreme 180MM rad since that is the only 180mm rad I can find (unless you guys have a better recommendation?)
6ft of Primochill 1/2id tubing (was thinking about going smaller.... but i think with the higher flow rate of the bigger tubing and the smaller rad, I should be fine)
A few fittings

The rest I have....

Anything else I should look into>?

Ehhh.... the more I look at the TJ08-E outa the box the more im not really feeling it. I'm so spoiled by my Antec mini P-180 with the thick and sturdy multilayered door panels and tough outside plastic the TJ08-E feel flimsy after years of not having a regular steel case. I'm also not really sure if I wanna bother putting a window when everything is flipsided and away from me or I have to redo my entire desk layout, which im not really sure I want to.  Plus, I just but alot of hard work into modding "Night Fire" that I feel bad on giving it up already

 

I need to think this over the weekend.......

If you are satisfied with your "Night Fire", then why change it?

My TJ08-E came yesterday and i must say that I am really impressed with build quality.
The front panel is absolutely amazing,aluminum is just great, too bad it is not all of aluminum.
One thing i do not like is thickness of top panel,it is too flimsy...

Ok I managed to fit the hdd bay in behind the front plate. It was a bit of a squeeze though, the sides of the plate had to fit between the case and the bay adapter so that it would retain its original position. Also added a 128GB SSD and an antec kuhler 620 with 2 ap15 fans in push-pull replaced my gelid tranquillo. Temps seem to be the same as before but I think it looks better.

Looking into sleeving my cables and adding a window at some point in the future. Really liking this case smile.gif

I suppose I should put my system into the case at least once to give it a fair try, but its just such a pain to redo all that work.....

Yeah give it a try! The inverted layout is really neat and once it is all put together you might just like it. I am partial to my P182-SE, but it is huge. I know your 180 is smaller, but the TJ08 is designed well and might give better airflow etc. It will be easier to mod the Silverstone too. I tried to mod one of the Antec 180 series cases for water and it was not easy.

Uh no, the TJ08 is a bit smaller by a good margin
