My 5870 is making a really weird noise (kinda like Intermittent rattle/grinding at idle speeds??)
and it only happens when its in the upside down orientation.
The fan speed is at 20% and i can hear the GPU around 5 meters away.

I checked and nothing is touching the fan or near it. It has a clear airflow path.

Sounds like the fans are bad, I would RMA them. They shouldn't make noise in any orientation.

A SilverStone rep on another forum commented on the HD cage being left in (even if empty)

"We were surprised too about the hard drive cage when conducting thermal testing during TJ08-E's development. But it does help reduce tested CPU temperature by a few degrees especially when the front intake fan speed is lower. "

Hi!

I will be having the TJ08E next month.
I would like to ask if the current users are having problems with the problems that was identified by silentpcreview.com?http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1215-page8.html

Are these problems can be ignored? Can it affect the overall performance of the TJ08E?

Also how is the mounted PSU at the top? Is it only supported by 4 screws at the back of the case? Thanks!
post #194 of 7170
Welcome to the forums Matt!

What problems are you referring to? Their complaints were:
>Noise, wishing it had a lower fan speed setting - my mobo keeps mine whisper quiet for me, so I can comment on that.
>Thin metal - no problems here. You'd have to be a ham-fisted moron to bend a case anyway. Noise resonance could be an issue, but with quality components and fans, it shouldn't be.
>A second drive cage - it's a relatively tiny mATX case that can already take 4x 3.5 AND 1x 2.5 AND 2x 5.25 drives. A second drive cage would be neat, but not worth the price for the 99.99% of the case's buyers who would never use it IMHO.

The PSU is mounted with the standard 4 screws at the back and supported by the sides - the bottom is open but the side plates wrap under it and help hold it up.

Hope that helps.

@DaveG
thanks!

@nagle3092
you are a user of lian li a04 before right?
Is tj08e a lot better compare to lian li a04?

@all
is it allright to have a PSU with 165mm length?
from the review of anandtech 160mm is the best and other PSU's with length above 160mm is not good for the case.

from anandtech:
Quote:
. Power supply clearance is at a premium, too: you'll need a 160mm PSU, period, end of discussion


sorry if I have many questions. I have to be clear that my components will fit inside the case otherwise I could cancel my reservation for the upcoming stocks of Tj08E. Thanks!

@ matt047
For a $100 case, its the best case i have ever used.
I prefer it over my $300 CM storm SniperBlack.
Noise is not an issue for me, The CM Storm was louder

Component temp not an issue Cpu idle, 22,24,28,22,21,21 (stock cooler)
Hdd's are all 22-26c
GPU 35c ICH 36c IOH 34c
Room Ambient temp around 15c-20c

It holds the same amount of HDD's as my CM storm did
It has a nice build quality about it doesn't feel as cheap as other cases in the same price range i have used.

A 165mm PSU will fit, it will just be a very tight fit (ie 90' bend in cables and a lot harder to do cable management)
I have my psu fan facing up where the filter is (so i don't have hot air blowing into my psu from all the other components) Silverstone have stated either direction is fine.

For components fitting inside the case, Everything of mine fits and its neat.
Sig Rig is inside this tiny case, And this is not a cheap rig of components...980x cpu ROG mobo eyefinity 6 gpu etc..
Pics if you want to see how much clearance is left after full install.

DOWNSIDE It's a lil heavy but my last case was worse.
CASE PICS *Click Me* =D


Hope that helps a lil in choosing this case.

That looks pretty nice, its a shame that the price is so high though.

The Corsair H80 is not compatible with this case. The second fan will eventually hit the CPU block. Although with some mods, there are several ways to get it to fit.

One of the guys on the OC AU forums decided to mount the fan externally so kudos to him. Although he did cut up the rear mesh. Here are his pics

I REALLY want this case for a home server, you cant find cases this small with that many hard drive bays, not to mention looking this good! I think it might be a crime to tuck it away in a corner as a server though... tongue.gif
