Silverstone TJ08-E Owners Club. - Page 162

post #1611 of 5970
yes, its only 160mm which is the length recommended by Silverstone for the TJ08-E, the only shorter ATX power supplies I have seen were 150mm. I don't know much about the Chieftec Nitro BPS other than the OEM is Channel Well.

SSD : 120GB - Corsair Force Series 3 £95
DVD : Suggestions please, anything that loooks good will do.
MOBO + Processor + RAM : Hoping to get a bundle when ivy bridge is released, will probably go ASUS because of the concerns about the size of the HR02: Asus P8Z77-M (PRO?) £100 + 8GB low profile corsair vengence £50 + i5 £200ish ?
GPU : Decide next month, probably the quietest thing I can find for under £200.
HD : Got an old 500GB .
missed anything ?
Total spend = £720ish This month + £200 next month + £100 whenever I replace the HD = £1020 (gulp).
(Starting to get quite excited)

I got a Samsung blueray drive to replace my dull Asus one mostly for appearance LOL. Mirror finish door and nice matte finish elsewhere. I got it on sale for $59us so whateva! I have an external but I burn DVD/CD's and rip CD's often (kinda) so I preffered just having an installed drive.

hah I just bought a FT02 so I can quad sli, I had a single 590 in my tj08-e, and 3 monitor surround is not smooth enough with a single 590, impeccable taste non-the-less.

I also had a heat problem, but that was resolved when I took my hdds out and put a fan facing the motherboard (overheated the motherboard :X ), but I like to have everything inside my case smile.gif

it's impossible to quad SLi on FT02 unless you are going full liquid setup. FT02 only has 7 usable expansion slots.

edit, doh doh.gif just read the 590 part biggrin.gif /duh biggrin.gif

That is why I chose the 590. 2 gpu's/card

Thanks for the warning though, I appreciate it.

Hi guys smile.gif
There are some pictures of my new server/gaming oriented build (based on X79/ i7 3820 + 7850 + RAID)

First, the old build (based on i7/870) with poor cable management smile.gif
450

And now starting the new build !!
450
450
450

450

More photos will come this week-end. I need to finish my cable management then testing my loop. Hoping with no leak smile.gif

When finished, I would like to perform some tests. Which softwares can I used to watch temp, to do burn tests and benchmark ?

webflo, that's a mighty powerful gaming rig/server. gl, hope it all works out.

So I've ordered the first block of parts for my TJ08-E build:

PSU: Corsair AX750
Mobo: Asus P8Z77-M Pro
RAM: 16GB Samsung Green
Case fan: Akasa Apache black (no idea about this fan but seems ok?)
Misc: Cables, cable tidy kit, rubber fan mounts, etc.

Still to come:

Case: TJ08-E of course!
CPU: SB/IB (depends on pricing which we will find out soon - am I right that the only differences on Z77 with SB/IB are going to be PCIe3.0 and slightly different memory performance?)
HSF: probably the HR-02 - just confirming I can get it with the Asus/Asrock mounting plate, don't want any hassles with installation
GPU: 7950/670 (waiting for 670s before deciding)
ODD: Bluray drive (TBD - maybe Pioneer BDR-S06?)

That's about £350 down and about another £550+ to go - chump change!

I have a Vertex 2 which I'm going to re-use for the time being as it doesn't get maximum use in my current rig. I imagine I'm best doing a fresh install on this to prevent any drivers conflicts, etc. from my other rig? Will I be able to wipe it after putting it into the new build or am I best doing it within its current home?
