Silverstone TJ08-E Owners Club. - Page 25

post #241 of 7160
Just be careful if you go with the Macho, as the thermarlight compatibility list has a lot of Asus mobos not compatible. Its weird cause the silverstone manual has pics of it, so the Chiphel review has it mounted, so the standard none macho version does fit, my guess is the macho uses a new mounting bracket that might have issues with a lot of asus mobos. Also depending on the GPU you decide, the TY140 (fan included with the macho) might fit or not (the fan is uneven one side has 140mm and the other 151mm).

Personally i think the HR02 is a great cooler (already have one running on another pc), not the best with all the dual rads that are out like NH-D14/silver arrow, Genesis. But it does have wider spacing in the fins, allowing it to perform good with little airflow. A lot of the reviews bash it out of its price, at $80 it approaches all those dual rads, and those even come with fans while the HR02 doesnt, so for them the HR02 is just overpriced cooler. Now to me its perfect option, its big, performs good with low rpms fans, and i dont mind the price. And since the HR02 "macho" is incompatible with the Gene Z i didnt have much option.

Doesn't the manual show a fanless HR-02? It might be the original (non macho) version.

The manual show a HR-02 with a fan mounted towards the 120mm exhaust of the case.

Below the (easily) removable HDD cage, there is an external/internal 3.5" drive bay with room for a 2.5" drive under that (sits sideways slammed against the floor of the case, so it may be for SSD's only).

From top to bottom, without modding, the case has:
2x 5.25" external drive bays
4x 3.5" internal drive bay cage
1x 3.5" external drive bay with holes to mount a 3.5 drive internally
1x 2.5" internal drive bay (SSD only?)

Hi, how about the H60?

Was thinking of getting 2 Gentle Typhoon to do a push-pull config.

Or should i just place 1 on the rad for exhaust?

Still waiting for the TJ08-E to arrive in Singapore. From the distro, probably mid next week.

A H60 will fit with both fans.

Definitely not man.

The stock cooler is fine for not overclocking! You'll be fine with one fan on the H60.

Hi all, just made an account here so I can share some infomation you might be interested in. Have been following this thread since I laid eyes on this case.

So, I have this case ordered along with new hardware, including the Maximus Gene-z and the HR-02 Macho. All was going great and I will recieve the final shipments tomorrow including the case and cooler, when i saw Abula commented on the incompatability with the the gene-z anc Macho. Feel stupid for not noticing this myself.

So heres what I have discovered: I contacted thermalright about it and was told I need another retension bracket and to contact my reseller about it. No luck with the resellar so back to thermalright and to keep it short (already too long, sry) the europeen ditributor has the new retension bracket already and the newer shipments of the HR-02 Macho will ship with the new one already, compatible with the Gene-z among others. I recieved great service from thermalright and the distributor and the distributor conacted me shortly after for my adress and will send me the new harware needed.

Conclusion: The HR-02 Macho should fit with the new retension bracket and new batches should come with it as stock.

Fingers crossed theres nothing else thats slipped between my fingers on this build =)
