Man I tried two gtx670's and it got crazy hot on the cpu closer to the cpu (1st one). My problem I think were mismatched cards though. I had an evga ftw 670 (gtx680 pcb) on the bottom and an asus dcii 670 on top, since the dcii backplate hangs down it really killed air flow to the fan on the evga. I hit 90c on heaven lol. I ended returning the asus though.

**edit: don't want to scare people from the case, it comes down to the gpu on this one.

Hi thanks for the response,
It is very strange. The only difference between the cards is 670 vs 680.
I have a Cougar 120 mm fan spinning @ the lowest RPM ( I did the test to put the cougar on max spinning 1600 rpm, you receive a lower temp, but more noise. ) in front of the cards, see picture.

So maybe the 180 mm fan does really good his work... I see you have that 180 mm Rad in front, maybe it strubble the airflow?

To be honest a corsair H80 keeps the temps really fine for the CPU.

And you got a 180 + 120 rad in this case, maybe add 2 GFX in your watercooling setup ?

Hey guys I thought it might be relevant here. I have the FP55 silverstone bay converter for sale n the market. TJ08 as well.

Yeah I think the problem was the asus card sat low and the evga one sat high since they were not matched cards, If I had two asus cards the cooler on the asus would have still been able to take enough air or if I had two evga cards the top one would have sat higher allowing more air to get to the bottom. I dont have the asus card anymore though, just the evga one and love it for 1080p gaming.

The 180mm radiator does slow air down, probably going to add another fan for push pull. A single 120mm radiator isnt bad but since im on an i7 at 4.8ghz I wanted temps as low as I could. Was hoping to push it to 5.0ghz but really 4.8ghz is enough so probably just gonna put the FTW on a water block to have a super quiet setup. Slowly I want to switch over to a custom water loop since I know an aftermarket cpu block will be more efficient of removing heat from the cpu too.

This would be good for anyone wanting to put their hard drives in the 5.25 slot, I use one of these. Man dude been a little quiet in here since you switched cases lol

I was contemplating to buy the TJ-08 casing for a long time. And after reading through this forum and seeing the work that has been done, I am completely sold. Will be getting mine soon and hopefully will be able to post and share with all. redface.gif

Hey all! Picking up one of these on Friday and I had a quick question regarding GPU cooler styles. I'm torn between the EVGA GTX 670 FTW (blower style cooler) and the ASUS GTX 670 dcuii (dual fan cooler). They are both at the same price point, though I'm not sure how well the ASUS card will do, since it recirculates hot air into the wind tunnel-style case. Can anyone with some experience with either style of cooler in this case help to dispel my fears and help me choose a card? Thanks guys! This thread is awesome!

I actually tried both in my case. I kept the FTW. Personally both cool about the same but generally people will recommend the exhaust style in a small case to help keep the inside as cool as possible, the nice thing is that the FTW can use 680 water blocks if you ever go water, The asus one might take a while or might not even get one. Keep in mind my ambient has been 78-80F too and both coolers did great. I cant really compare temp/ghz since the asus couldnt even be stable at 1180mhz, it crashed once on heaven and passed the other, the FTW did 1215mhz stock without even overclocking. But the asus at 70% fan at a lower clock was about the same temp as the FTW at a higher clock at 70% so Im guessing both coolers are pretty good with the 670 since the FTW uses the 680 cooler. The difference between the two is sound level, the Asus is SILENT!!!!!!! I had fans at 70% on the asus and it was hard to hear, the FTW matching that sound level needs to be at about 60% fan speed. One nice thing is that the FTW had the memory on a heatsink where the asus dcii does not, that might be why my FTW memory overclocks WAY WAY better than the asus did or it was just luck. Its nice how the FTW takes the hot air out too, it has kept my liquid temps down a bit and maybe 1-2c cooler while gaming on the cpu compared to my asus dcii gtx570, I didnt get enough data on the asus dcii670 to really notice but liquid temps looked very close to the 570 over time.

Also the 670ftw can use the 680 backplate if you want to use one, Im sure evga will release one sooner or later but I havent gotten one yet hoping a 670ftw plate comes out. Im curious if it will help pull heat away from the board.

Also remember with the 670 it TRUELY is a lottery with overclocking, even the asus top ones are all over the place. Some of the TOP cards dont even clock much higher than the asus spec. I really only had the hope for over 1200mhz.

Has anybody found a great drive that aesthetically fits with the aluminum bezel?

I'm torn between just dealing with a black plastic drive or splurging for this and the extra money for a slot load DVD burner. (about 45 on newegg)

I'm just wondering if anyone has found a good alternative or a cheaper slot loading dvd burner.

Thanks!

I have the silverstone slotloader bay.
Same color and gradiant as the case.

I took this Bluray Burner slimline Sony Optiarc BD-5850H-01 --> https://www.alternate.be/html/product/Blu-ray_Brander_Serial-ATA/Sony_Optiarc/BD-5850H-01/645583/?
Attention,
If you buy this kind of front loader don't forget to buy this cable.
DeLOCK Slimline 7+6-Pin SATA Kabel
https://www.alternate.be/html/product/Kabels_Serial-ATA/DeLOCK/Slimline_7+6-Pin_SATA_Kabel/501035/?
It takes the power of a FFD connector from your PSU.

Also you can mount 4 SSD or laptop drives in the bay + frontloader Bluray.
Works like a charm.
