Silverstone TJ08-E Owners Club. - Page 110

post #1091 of 7166
Ok, not far worse, just worse smile.gif and for smaller price (in my area) I can get an air cooler that performs better than water cooler. And since I won't be opening it much I can sacrifice and openness inside the case for better temps. All I care is price/performance ratio and good air cooler wins here for me.

And yeh, I linked just the first thread I saw about it. Not sure whats the better way, removing the fins or the whole heatsinks...

Also just checked, Kuhler 620 is not sold here... Just out of curiosity, what's the best corsair cooler for TJ08? So many came out lately...

Edit: Corsair H80 costs about ~$15 more than Silver Arrow. Worth getting Corsair in that case? Seems way too big though..

Edit2: Remembered why I didnt like Corsair, it's fans are too loud.

I believe people are able to squeeze the h80 with p/p fans in their tj08. I wish the ps07b had a better front face, as I would have preferred the dual 120mm up front over the single 180. This would have allowed me to use the h100. The tj08 is just far better looking.

As for the ram, I don't think I'd attempt to remove the heat spreaders. One of the posts said they were epoxied on. See if you can't remove the fins and look at how that might fit.

I never use the stock fans on my coolers. I've had the h50 and now the kuhler 620. Both I ran with scythe ap15's.

Any of the thicker radiator AIO units I'm sure perform pretty similarly. I went with the thinner rad for 2 reasons. First was the $40 sale price, 2nd, I wasn't SURE I could get the h80/h70/kuhler 920 to fit with 2 fans. Had the 620 not been on sale, I probably would have gotten the h80, but it was so that pretty much sealed the deal.

As for not opening the case much! I look at mine several times a week! No windowed side panel means I just have to take off the side and stare for a bit. smile.gif I also spray it out fairly often. Again, its just too pretty in there not to at least take a peek now and then smile.gif

Hehe I know how you feel smile.gif I was also wondering why Silverstone won't make a windowed version or at least let us buy side window as an accessory.

If I replace stock coolers the total price will go up considerably for me frown.gif So I guess I will just look around and check the prices for some deals.

I am very reluctant removing anything from my Dominators to be honest so I guess I will keep looking for the cooler that suits best in my case.

Thanks for your points smile.gif

Ha. Thanks. But I already ordered that Silverstone part. And it works the charm. It's a tight squeeze up there.. but it works and fits. I've cleared out the entire bottom area now. No more messy red sata cables. XD. I shall take a pic once I've re-assembled.

I considered doing the back of the motherboard thing with the 3.5 in a 5.25 only. But I have 2 SSDs. (My other arrived recently. Whilst I won't really be using it yet; I've already got it installed/setup ready to use). I could still do it I guess.. But eh. XD.

I'm going to remove the sata power cables completely actually. Going to get a Bitfenix sleeved cable that turns a molex into 3-4 sata cables and use that. So I'll only have a molex connected + PCIE + the 24/8pin. =D. (I need the molex anyway for my sound card.. )

PS; yes I know PCCG are my friends.. I buy from them frequently and frequently post on their facebook wall ha. And I was eying that adapter for a while (the 3.5 to 2.5 one). But no need anymore ^^.

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

Yeah I was looking at that for a while too. But both your solutions require using both 5.25 bays. (Unless I mount dual SSD's on the back of the motherboard tray.. I may look into this later on.. But for now this'll do)

No windowed version, but I did cut my own window and it was fairly easy. Also, I see a lot of ram heat spreaders that are just double sided taped on and don't even transfer heat.

Oh thats just a piece of paper i put in there so the GPU doesn't short on the cooler.

Following Dragonheart's ways, I decided to purchase the FP55 as well and clean up the inside a bit.

Before:
450

Now:
400

Wire management:
400

Tight Fit:
400

I'm confused. I see you have both the gpu and cpu being cooled by pny. That the hydro pny 580? How are you cooling both off the same radiator?? Is it some sort of hybrid AIO/custom loop?
