Silverstone TJ08-E Owners Club. - Page 213

post #2121 of 7203
Yeah, definately get a 160mm long PSU, I don't use an internal optical drive but from seeing other images in this thread 160mm can be tight with an optical drive. In fact 190mm is no go as the maximum is 185mm for PSU before it will be blocked by the angle in the top enclosure, plus PSUs really have no need to be that long so look for something 160mm IMO.

As for coolers, its more motherboard limitation (GPU slot clearance and RAM) but I say just be sensible, this is a small case so get an appropriate cooler. Of course you can get something huge and some fit and sometimes require modding (look back a few pages to see someone who had to cut back the fins on his Noctua NH-D14 to clear the GPU). Most coolers that take a 120mm fan will be just fine and the 165mm clearance is plenty enough for mostly all of them, with 140mm fan coolers it can be hit or miss so carefully check the dimensions. For reference I used a venomous X which uses a 120mm fan shroud which is 145mm wide, it clears the GPU by a couple of mm. Best of luck with the build, hope you can post back some photos.

With a Maximus V Gene and a 7850, an NH-D14 fits pretty much perfectly. All I had to do was wrap some electrical tape around the fan clips, which even gave the GPU a bit of support biggrin.gif. If you have a card with a backplate, all you would need to do is bend the fan clips a bit so they're closer to the heatsink and it'd be fine.

Hi I'm currently purchasing parts for my build, do you think a GTX 690 will get adequate cooling in this case with the front 180mm case fan set on low?

I was also considering passively cooling the cpu with a HR-02.
post #2124 of 7203
why not get the HR-02 macho, the TY-140 fan is virtually silent anyway and will give the HR-02 much better thermal performance and thus room for more overclocking.
post #2125 of 7203
Well you can add me to the club now!
TJ-08e has arrived, with the Asus GTX670 DCU2T and a couple of noise foam packages.


Now to start measuring, counting screws to replace with red allen ones, etc...

I thought the height and width of the TY-140 fan might touch the back of the GPU or the stop the side panel from fitting back on the case.

Other coolers I've been considering are the Antec Kuhler 920 and the Noctua NH-U12P SE2, but I am worried about the noise with the Antec and the overclocking performance with the Noctua.

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.

Could you show us what it looks like?
post #2128 of 7203
Does anyone know if the front 180mm fan can be replaced by 2 120mm fans? I assume that you can but that it would take some work. Has anyone tried doing this? I plan on taking my current build and transplanting it into this case soon (with some upgrades). I know that Silverstone has the PS07B but I can't stand the front of that case.

Also, I'm new here so hello!

I bet hes talking about this one: http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=326&area=en

Quick search into Silvertone site:
FP58-34View.jpg


My only concern with using that one instead of the Lian-Li I have is heat, 7200rpm 2.5" drives do get hot, not as much as a 3.5" but since heat is the 2nd worst enemy of a HDD...

Here's the Lian-Li bay device im talking about that I have:
http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product/product06.php?pr_index=527&cl_index=2&sc_index=5&ss_index=17&g=f
bz-525-05.jpg


As you can see the in Silverstone one, HDDs sit really close to each other, the Lian-Li have more room between them and has the front holes for added ventilation to the case.

So you have to trade off between the heat and the slim drive (lian li is only 4x2.5" drives)...

How well does that lian li one match the tj08e brushed front cover? Im thinking of using my lower 5.25 for an air intake with this fan:

(edit) This ebay one actually is rated at 40cfm vs the silverstone one at 14cfm

Still thinking about it since I can also use that slot for a reservoir
