Cool man, good luck! be patient with it and sure it will be cool.

Hello,

I am new to this forum, and I hope to also be a TJ08-e owner soon.

I currently own a huge setup which I want to upgrade for different reason :
  1. noise (too loud for my lounge)
  2. size (much too big for my needs)
  3. new hardware (for performance improvements)

The details of my current setup and the one I am planning to build are in my rigs, just placing the new one below for easier readability:
  • RAD: Noctua NH-U12P SE2
  • PSU: Seasonic X-660 80PLUS Gold
  • SSD: Samsung Serie 830 256 Go Desktop kit
  • MB: ASUS Maximus V GENE
  • Proc: Intel Core i5-3570K (3.4 GHz)
  • RAM: Corsair Vengeance Low Profile White Series 8 Go (2x 4 Go) DDR3 1600 MHz CL9
  • Graphics: Asus GTX670-DC2T-2GD5 2 GB
  • Sound: Asus Xonar Essence STX (already owned)

Beside of the case for storage: (I already own 2 Seagate Barracuda Green 2 To SATA 6Gb/s)
  • NAS: Synology DiskStation DS412+
  • HDD: Seagate Barracuda Green 2 To SATA 6Gb/s
  • UPS: Eaton Ellipse ECO 800 USB

Do you have any comments on the hardware chosen for my new build regarding 2 main aspects :
  • the system needs to be as quiet as possible (keeping a good performance level)
  • components need to fit in the case smile.gif

I already went trough the forum and it seems all pieces of hardware in my rig can fit the box and are quiet enough to fulfill my requirements.

I just want to bring this to the good audience here, to get advices or comments to improve it.

Another question : do you think it can be valuable to add noise reduction matting such as AK-PAX-2

(PS: Sorry for my English smile.gif)

Yea, i figured around 5mm would be good and wont affect the cooler. Now i'm debating if I should use a dremel or just some wire cutters since the fins are thin.

What about pulling the cooler out and laying the side you want trimmed down on a belt sander after taking a couple MM off with the Dremel? You might be able to just go full belt sander (if you have one of course).

Welcome to ocn. Hmmm seems you got pretty much almost everything covered lol. Maybe just the rear case fans which I am sure you probably thought of already and is that gpu reference or non-reference?(this case seems to prefer hot air being exhausted out at the rear) Hope to see you in the club soon smile.gif

Would be nice and a whole lot easier with a belt sander but dont have one. Instead I took the long route and used small wire clippers to cut each fin which took forever. Then at the end I used a Dremel to grind it to a smooth touch. Right now it clears perfectly but will apply some electrical tape to the GPU to be on the safe side.

3) scythe ninja 3 rev.B
These are the only coolers that i have in my local PC store.
Other components in the PC are going to be 2500k, maximus IV gene-z, gtx570 dc ii and 8 gigs of normal RAM with no heatsinks on it.
Please help me decide. Tnx in advance.
Ps: oh yeah, congrats for 200 pages on this thread. :3

Hi !

A HR-02 Macho does fit. I had to slightly move the fan towards the inside of the case to close the panel (1mm or less, not a big deal).
I'll take a few pictures tomorrow to show you.

P.S.: You might wanna read about that other guy experiencing BSOD's and/or system freeze before installing the GTX in the first PCI-e slot.
post #2008 of 7177
I'm thinking about this case, and some others for my current rig. I'll be swapping the 6950 though for a 670 gtx reference, which would be the only major change. My question is how would my H60 fair in the case in terms of overall cooling and how would I set it up?

I'm thinking:
SilverStone SUGO SG02
SilverStone TJ08B
or maybe go with one of the Fractal design cases.

So at the 120mm exit in the back? Also what fans for the push pull would be optimal? Sorry for the barrage of questions. biggrin.gif
