Its not that bad, but if you decide to stay away from a custom loop any of the 120mm kits from antec and corsair will take care of the cpu fine. I have even seen an h100 in the tj08e somewhere in here. The guy mounted it behine the 180mm fan area and had just enough space to place it verticle. I think he used velcro or 2 sided tape to secure it.

Hello All,

Order the first batch of parts yesteday: This board was definitely the reason I went with this case - some excellent builds and ideas on part placement - SDD behind MB tray one of my favorites, along with removing the HDD cage for better air flow, more space and a cleaner look. Thanks everyone!

Ordered:
Case: TJ08B-E
MB: ASUS Maximus V Gene
CPU: i5 3570K (getting from microcenter this week) planning on overclocking to 4.5GHZ if chip allows.
SSD: Muskin Chronos Deluxe 240GB
PSU: Corsair Professional Series Gold 850AX
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaw (8GB DDR3 @1600GHZ)
OS: Windows 7 Professional SP1 64bit OEM
HDD: 1TB from previous build

Still undecided on the following:
Cooler: Corsair H80 or Noctua NH-D14 (or something else.....) Suggestions?
GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 670 2GB is the front runner but maybe a slightly more pricey HD7970...is worth banking on great things from the Catalyst 12.7 drivers?
BR/DVD: something in the $50-$60 range

The computer would sit inside a desk cabinet - opened in the back but the front has a door that would be about 4 inches from the front of the case. Does this sound like a bad idea w.r.t. to disrupting the cooling flow?

Thanks again all & hopeing to post some pictures once this baby gets underway.

Hi, I'm using H80 and happy with it now~ looks simple inside the case and gives you more space...
NH-D14 is good cooler too

johnnyli: Is the H80's fan louder than the AP181?
I'm thinking about change the Dark rock pro, but I'm affraid of the nois. I've read about Corsair hydro series are a little louder than the Dark Rock Pro's fans.
Any experience about that?

Well the fan he's using is a noctua anyway.. Not sure if he even tried the H80 fan? Corsair fans are loud in high. Low/Medium should be fine though. But with the AP 181 at the front; I think low would be enough anyway. There'd be enough cool air coming from the front of the case to compensate for the low setting...

H80 seems decent but I'm not sure I want to spend another $25 for an aftermarket fan.....minimizing noise is a factor for me. Is there a reason why you only used 1 Noctua fan on the H80 radiator? Did it not fit, or was it for budgetary reasons? Did it affect your cooling performance to remove the "push" fan?

Thanks

I know the h70 fans were kinda loud but the antec 920 ones were even louder.

If minimizing noise is a factor for you, then go for the aftermarket fan(s)! or never turn on the 3rd LED on the pump....
I think 1 Noctua fan (PWM by mobo BIOS) is more than enough at the moment

PS: It is very cold in Canberra now plus im running stock speed. Even OC to 4.8GHz will be no issue at all...
