Yeah thats what I thought, maybe typod on 280? He would have needed to drill new mounting spots though, thats why I assumed it was a 240 till he said 180.

Hello,

Can somebody recommend a reference cooled 7850 GPU for this case? There only seems to be a couple of them and the reviews on them are spotty at best.

I have settled on this card series as the best option for my set-up under $300. All of the current reviews are for the dual-fan aftermarket cooled set-ups which I'm not sure would work well with my set-up which will include the stock front fan and an Antec 920. I play games here and there and might OC a bit; nothing too demanding, on a 27" 1080P monitor.

Thanks

Any reference 7850 from a reputable brand name. Look at warranty and price as the cards will be practically the same.

Added a 120mm fan on low and got temps down 5-7c and when I was comparing, the cooler temps with the 670 were at 78F ambient. The card did good with no help in ambient in the 72F range though but in the hotter temps guess the case was getting warm up there. The asus dcii 670 was similar regarding temps, only difference was it was silent so I dont think its a cooler issue, its just the top of the case collects the hot air. My gtx570 dcii had no issues and to defend the 670ftw the only reason I want to be far away from 70C is thats where it will kick you down 15mhz, not that the card was overheating tongue.gif

Wait so the rear radiator outside in the back is a 180mm? Could have sworn it was 280mm or 240mm. Nice so your doing 2x 180mm radiators huh? Regardless very creative layout thumb.gif
Mind sharing some pics of how you mounted the rear one? I have the 180mm magicool and am assuming the fans you have on it are smaller than 120mm?

If I am not wrong how he mounted that external rad is with this

Ok bad news...
Stupid issue #1... The "standard" 5.25" Lian-Li HDD cage BZ-525 won't fit in the "standard" bay of the TJ08e... Maybe the first is a bit wider, or the second a bit too small or both...

Anyway, here's the pic and there are more in the flickr set:

HDD Cage Fail_1 by gB^Holy_COW, on Flickr


Since the Bezel is removable, (and that's the part that won't fit) I guess I will have to try to swap the Lian-Li bezel with the stock one form the case... no front ventilation holes for me so far...



UPDATE
Cant fit the case bay cover over the Lian-Li cage after removing its bezel/cover...
The other option will be to screw the cage further back, but as we all know the room between the 5.25" bays and the PSU is really close so I guess this will be a no go frown.gif
The only "good" thing is that I already had the Lian-Li cage lying around and was not a purchase specific for this build tongue.gif


So I guess I will have to check out the Silverstone 4x2.5+slim DVD cage.
To be safe, can someone confirm that it will fit?
The width according to Silverstone is 148mm http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=326&area=en
and the lian li is supposed to be 149... and I'm sure theres more than 1mm blocking the lianli from entering the case...

Thanks for the pic +rep, the color seems very very close if not the same without the flash. Good thing it wasnt money waisted, you can probably cut down the lian li bay cover though so it sits deeper and either drill new mounting holes or just 2-sided tape it in place.

I ended up just using an empty FP55 since there is a little opening in there, it actually sucks in air from that thing

Yes it will fit. I had a similar problem with the lian li slim dvd bay not fitting, side part of bezel was too wide and wouldn't slide in far enough, so I bought the silverstone one instead. Perfect fit and with slot loading dvd is not as deep as the dvd drive it replaced so more room for hiding cables. Can't post any pics 'cause I'm at work but can post some later if you want.

Edit: May be of some use or maybe I'm a little dumb but the Silvestone drive cage fits slot loading drives with an eject button. I wasn't sure about that and couldn't find any for sale without an eject button so emailed Silverstone. Impressed with the quick response that I got telling me that they all fit as there is a small amount of space behind the bezel to accomodate them.

I have a quick question about the case:
Can the front 180mm fan be turned around?
