The only reason I can think why they put a hole on top of the case with an airfilter.

1) You want to have a silent PC.
2) People that put a fanless PSU, or temp controlled PSU,
3) Fanless PSU --> Heat rise up --> hole is available --> complete silent.
4) Same with the temp controlled PSU --> If the temp and load is under 200 watt or 30 - 40 degree's --> fan is stopped --> If the psu temp rise due load --> fan's spins on --> suck fresh cool air from top --> passive again.

6) So like my PSU, it is a temp controlled fan, AX850 corsair with a diameter of 120 mm Fan....
My main goal is to put 2 GFX inside this case...
This will say, more hot air rise to the top, if you turn the PSU upside down, my PSU will engage the 120 mm more --> so I can use it as a second 120 mm exhaust fan.

Due the big 180 mm fan in front, you still create a positive airflow in the case. and the PSU will remove some internal heat biggrin.gif:D.

And to be honest, those PSU are really tortured at maximum ;-) if they die, it is warranty biggrin.gif

That my point of view tongue.gif

Cheer, and thanks for the positive feedback thumb.gif

This does all make sense to me. The only thing that doesn't is that you normally put a fan filter where there is an intake fan. I guess its for dust to stop falling on top of the psu? IDk its just odd to me. I didn't read the manual and didn't think twice about the PSU. I was happy it had an intake.

Also I don't really want mine running super hot. But in reality it probably won't affect it that much.

Any word on if the phantek will fit inside the TJ08-e? I know its a little bigger than the NHD-14 and the Silver Arrow but I really like the look of the blue one plus the performance.

Because you can do the both way's :-)
And yes, the filter got 2 functions, view is the first 1, otherwize you got a hole on top :-)
And 2 it prevent falling dust inside, or sucking dust inside the case if you turn the psu around:p

With the big intake, it cannot be so superhot, that the PSU will suffer anyway.

http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/corsair_ax850/6.htm review for my PSU :-)

From a benchmark test under load of DC Loading(W) 845/846 --> Temp In (°C) 24.1/24.1--> Temp Out 32.2/30.9 ( so not to very high temps ) but the fan spins for my PSU 1957/1945 rpm

I have indicated zero fan speed at 170 W which isn’t strictly speaking true because the fan kicked in very intermittently at this level at 300 rpm for few seconds. The silent fan control technology means, according to the graph, no fan noise up to approximately 150W because it won’t be spinning and virtually no fan noise up to 425W at only 10 dBA, a very welcome feature for most enthusiasts I’m sure. The fan noise does ramp up beyond 425W and at full load it becomes noticeably louder but no more than other power supplies in this class. Temperatures remained very low at all times, but once again, please are aware that it wasn’t installed in a case and no hot boxes have been used.

What I really like about the Corsair AX850 is the silent fan control technology and the results it produces. Let’s face it, you’re not going to get silence when used in an high end dual graphics card set up playing a round of Crysis and it wouldn’t really benefit me because I usually fold when not gaming and the loudest thing I hear is my graphics card fan, a quiet power supply really wouldn’t make much difference. It will benefit the gamer that likes a silent PC while at the desktop, surfing, or using productivity software and enjoys quiet while gaming on a single high end graphics card.

If you want silent, put the fan upside, if you want it louder and more heat to take outside put it in the otherway. thumb.gif

Yah no worries man I'm not knocking you at all. Forgive if it sounded like I was. Your free to do yours however you like and I don't think either is wrong.

I think you said you wanted to do SLI? I think its better to have it like yours I like your choice. For sli because there will be a ton of heat right there.

No problem mate, it was'n knocking at all,biggrin.gif
Yes, SLI will be tested.
If the heat is OK, I order my second card.
There will be a lot of heat, to be tested.

Already bored about waiting those CPU and GFX cards :-(

Sorry if I missed it are you getting 680's? If so I would very much like to hear what temps you get in this case. Not that I will need SLI for one 1080p monitor but I would love to get it one day.

Please post results.

And will do, if my computer supplier calls me :-)

I'm a bit more interested in the upper-midrange boards - can't really justify getting the gene/sniper boards unfortunately frown.gif

i'm in the same position. Right now, I'm debating between the P8Z77-m pro and Asrock's Extreme 4-m. does anyone have experience working with Asrock's boards? They appear to get very good reviews, for about $30 less than the Asus board. I'm thinking that a number of online vendors will be running combo deals next week with the release of IB, and my plan is to get the CPU / MB at that time.

After that, only two more paychecks until my Tj-08e is complete. Can't wait....

Nice Fredal, can't speak to the ASrock boards as haven't used them and no mATX Z77 ASrock boards here atm but they do get decent reviews. For me it's between Gigabyte Z77MX-D3H and Asus P8Z77-M Pro, the Asus being £10 more, I'm looking into which is the best atm.

randomnerd865, as for the Phantec cooler its going to be at least as tight as the Noctua, depending on how many fans you use. The 151mm width will mean it will be 1-2mm away from your GPU if not touching it (so probably some padding needed to insulate it) Also if you do use all 3 fans you are probably going to be ditching the drive cage, I would also watch out for RAM clearance if you have RAM with tall heatsinks - amazing cooler though!
