I'm just wondering if anyone has found a good alternative or a cheaper slot loading dvd burner.
Thanks!
I went with samsungs blueray drive for the mirror finish slot but the rest of the bezel is matte black. Looks good though. Picture at the top of this page

Well my TJ-08e and parts are on its way. hopefully I'll have them this week or the next one tongue.gif (yep, it is slow to ship from USA to my Country)

This will be my build so far:
Case: Silverstone TJ-08e
Motherboard: Asus Gene-V (Z77)
CPU: Intel i7-3770K (Ivy Bridge)
HSF: Corsair A70 (reused from another build)
GPU: Asus GTX670-DC2T-2GD5
RAM: GSkill Ripjaws X DDR3 1600MHz (I had them lying around)
PSU: Seasonic X-560 (Reused from another build)
HDDs: 2x WD Scorpio Black 750GB
Optical: LG GGW-H20L Super Multi Blue

Right now the plan is to build as it is, I'm reusing some parts to lower costs at this moment, however the plan is to replace some things on a couple of months:
Monitor: replace my Dell 2408WFC with a 27" 2560x1440 Shimian or similar (and requiring to go SLI for the higher resolution)
PSU: Seasonic Platinum 860 (as my 560 wont be enough for the SLI)
GPU: Additional Asus GTX 670 DCUII-TOP
HSF: Phanteks? NH-D14? (thought about custom WC, but since the GPUs have great cooling may not be necessary)
SSD: Couple of Intel 520's? Use one to cache the Scorpios?


HDDs
The plan is to remove the HDD cage and use this Lian-li 4x2.5" I already have (in black) http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product/product06.php?pr_index=527&cl_index=2&sc_index=5&ss_index=17
So I will mount the Optical on top 5.25", an the 2 HDDs (plus 2 SSDs?) in the bottom 5.25", and I will have a lot of room behind the 180mm fan

The idea behind the Scorpios (2.5") is to be able to hide them, performance wise they are ok. To improve performance I will use Intel Matrix Raid like in my current setup (SG-07), creating 2 Raids (0 for OS and games, 1 for Data) so I will have performance and redundancy. I'd like to use the Intel Smart Response SSD caching technology, but not sure if it will work with the Matrix Raid setup.


Top Fan Filter
This is GREAT for the Seasonic X-series and Platinum PSUs. These PSUs are semi-fan less, so in low consumption (Windows desktop, browsing the web, maybe watching a movie) they keep their fan off. Having the PSU able to exhaust the hot air by convection will allow them to stay cooler, and maybe fanless for more time before heating up and requiring the fan to kick in.


Modding
Well well well... as soon as the case arrives I'll start measuring and thinking what to do.. maybe paint some red lines/areas to go with the red theme of the mobo, ram and GPU.
I don't think I will put a window on it... Maybe if there was a way to purchase a side panel with window so I can swap them if I grow tired of it (eg so I stil can go back to window-less if it turns out i hate it)

I have other ideas, but will have to wait for the case to arrive tongue.gif

^nice build to come!

im going to be building in this case after countless indecisive moments about what case

prodigy/tj08/sg08

i canceled out prodigy. its the same size as a tj08!!!

im going tj08 due to extra slot for sound card!

mobo:maximus v
proc:3770k
cooler:h80
ram:g skill 8gn
ssd:128 crucial m4
sound card:HT | OMEGA CLARO II
psu:seasonic x650
video card:msi 6950tf3 from my current rig untill i got gtx 680

question about the case though, is it portable as far as taking it to lan partys go, my current case is a fractal r3 for comparison. do you guys take it to lan partys?

enkay, use a strong back-pack, it's surpirsingly heavy once it's built and I don't have any 3.5" HDDs in mine!
post #2106 of 7203
Jumping in here.

Parts for this build arriving tomorrow, here's what I've got going on.

CPU: i5 3570K
MOBO: G1 Sniper M3
RAM: 2x4GB Trident.X F3 @ 2400Mhz
GPU: EVGA GTX680 Signature+
HDD: WD Black 1TB
SSD: Samsung 830 128GB
PSU: Corsair AX650
SOUND: Asus Xonar Essence STX
CPU-C: Corsair H60 w/ 2x BitFenix Spectre Pro (White)
FANS: 1x 200mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro (White)
CASE: The TJ08-E! smile.gif

Getting a window laser cut in the side panel, will be putting clear acrylic in the window, having the internals powdercoated with white highlights, and all AX650 cables will be sleeved with MurderMod black sleeving, and 2 Lime green highlights, and one white highlight, to compliment the board. RAM heatspreaders will also be stripped of stickers and powdercoated.

You might consider the 200mm radiator phobia makes. I have the 180mm and its cool but if I sell this case I cant really use it in anything since everyone else uses 200mm. Been looking for a way to mount it clean on a 200mm fan opening.
