This is almost exactly how I plan to do my next build! Even the BD-ROM is the same tongue.gif Although I might go for Silver Arrow cooler instead. By the way, what's the best place to get this thermal thing (dunno the name in english) which you put between the cooler and the GPU? I suspect I will be needing it!

The fan on low is pretty quiet, but its probably sitting right next to your ear. I find it a bit noisy too unless I'm gaming so I just cut it off with my fan controller and leave my noctua on 50% and my exhaust is silent so it stays on 100%. I'd still be interested in a dead quiet fan for the front though.

And put both my 2 SSDs (Currently only have 1, the 2nd is on the way), + my 1TB in a 5.25 inch bay.. But I can't find a perfect adapter for this.. There's a Lian Li 2 x 5.25 bay cover that holds 3 3.5inch drives.. (Then I'd just use an adapter for the 2.5's).. But mixing branding like that puts me off lol. Especially because the drive bay has 'Lian Li' on the front tongue.gif.
My TRUE sits so low because the motherboard CPU socket is very close to the top-end of the board.. ><<br /> 280
Also Guys.. I would loveeee some help finding that adapter.. I live in Australia though. So.. Ya. Something I can mount my 3.5 inch HDD into the 5.25 inch bay.. my current adapter simply won't do it. Perhaps I should try another.. Hmm. I'd like to remove the HDD cage completely (the bottom 3.5 bay one). And have a single HDD 3.5 in one of the top 5.25; and put 2 SSDs in there as well. Perhaps one on the very bottom; one behind the motherboard tray (if not both XD)

Hey mate try these ouy PCCG is you friend in AUST thumb.gif

You could keep things ultra simple by just using this kit from Lian Li:

http://www.coolerguys.com/840556089902.html

It already comes with rubber isolators and you wouldn't have to use an additional adapter to go from 3.5 to 2.5.

Hey guys! Got a dilemma. I am going to build a system in this case but I am unsure about the cooler.

I was initially thinking of getting Silver Arrow but then remembered that I have Corsair Dominator RAM to fit in there with tall heatsinks. I was thinking about Thermalright Archon but then realised that it's too tall for this case (150mm).. Taller than Silver Arrow which barely fits.

I also heard that I can remove heatsinks (Link) from Dominator but not sure if that's a good idea..

What would you guys do? Thanks for all the suggestions in advance!
post #1086 of 7172
the heat-sinks are just for show removing them wouldn't hurt anything because ram doesn't over heat anymore. The silver arrow and noctua NHD-14 are both good choices but if your worried about size or covering up your mobo to much go with the antec khuler 620, or corsair water cooling if you prefer.

Hey guys,

I've just bought this case and a Noctua NH-D14 2011 (with the additional mounting kit for 1155 boards), but I'm wondering whether buying that cooler was a mistake due to its size. I have an SSD and 2 regular 3.5" HDDs, so I'm assuming there won't be enough space? If so, what are my best options? Will the SSD and 1 of the HDDs fit?

Thanks!

EDIT - Oh yeah, I don't have all of the components for the build yet, which is why I'm asking. biggrin.gif
post #1088 of 7172
Yeh I guess I will do it, remove heatsinks and get proper cooling. I am not gonna get this water wannabe coolers which are overpriced and show far worse temps than good aircoolers like Noctua or Thermalright ones. But thanks for suggestions smile.gif

You can read about fitting Noctua D14 here http://www.overclock.net/t/1068487/silverstone-tj08-e-owners-club/100_20#post_14373577

I am personally gonna use 1 HDD for storage in the bottom 3.5 bay and fit and SSD somewhere when I get this case.

Thanks!

Would a 2.5" HDD with a 3.5" mounting kit fit in the drive bays without space issues? Presumably this only affects 3.5" drives, right?
post #1090 of 7172
Far worse? I'd be interested in seeing any chart showing that temps are FAR worse than good air coolers.

At the risk of starting yet another "AIO water coolers suck" flame wars, I'd just like to point out with proper fans and configs, the AIO cool just as
well as high end air coolers. As for expense, I got my kuhler 620 for $40. Its all personal preference, as I like the smallish blocks/pumps of
the AIO units because they make the case look less "packed". That noctua, good cooler it may be, practically fills up the tj08 smile.gif

As for the ram, I assume you read that whole thread in the link you posted. They were talking about removing just the fins on the top of the
dominators, not the entire heatsink itself.

@funksoul
You could mount the SSD on the back side of the mobo tray like most of us do here. That would eliminate that problem. Do you have, or plan
to have an optical drive? I have my 3.5 in a hotswap 5.25 bay.
