What are your temps like?

Absolutely, if you don't want to overheat your CPU. I suggest something like Antec Formula 7 Nano Diamond Thermal Compound, which is what I used. Available at local office stores and computer stores as well as online.

I used a Antec Kuhler H20 620 water cooler which was easy to install, self contained and made the space very open. This cooler only uses one included 2-pin fan (it could also use 2 fans, but doesn't need it), which I replaced with a PWM 4 pin 120mm fan hooked directly to the motherboard, making it better as the fan is now controllable. It is very quiet even using the original fan and keeps the cpu very cool. The weight is also much less than a heavy air-cooled cpu cooler. This solution is a whole lot simpler and better than an air cooled IMHO. P.S. Make sure the fan blows out of the case towards the back.

I have an MSI GTX 580 lightning in the case, and the only time I hear any noise is from the GPU when it is doing rendering or extreme games,

I ran a simple AIDA CPU stress test for 40 minutes and CPU temps are decent:


I also ran Furmark for about 15 minutes:


As you may know, Furmark is not like playing games. Furmark stresses the GPU closer to 100% by default as opposed to many modern games which are more optimized to scale based on video settings. In gaming or rendering, my temperatures would never reach this high. Depending on the the application, I would average about 45-55 degrees C. The 690 is worth it in my opinion and perfect for this type of case.

Hey there

I stumbled upon this thread and wanted to get some expert advice on this Micro ATX case and what I was planning on buying and if the following components would work/fit (PS/GPU/HeatSink, etc) and if it will keep cool enough.

Case - Silverstone TJ08-E

MB - ASUS P8Z77-M PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 or ASUS Maximus V Gene LGA 1155 Intel Z77
Friend suggests ASUS but the P8Z77-M PRO seems to be getting bad reviews on NewEgg for booting up/issues

CPU - Intel i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5 GHz 4xcore

GPU - Gigabyte GTX 670 OC'ed

PS - OCZ 700W PSU

RAM G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900)

SSD - SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC128B/WW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC
HHD - 1 TB 10000RPM Spinning disc to be added later.

Heat Sink - Cooler Master N520

Will this case/rig fit and be good enough for that CPU/GPU and keeping it cool and running without overheating? Or would I need to add more fans and a Corsair H80 I've read the stories about the smaller cases heating up like ovens. I don't plan on overclocking unless needed in the future...and really havent done much if at all OC'ing in the past minus a few times here and there. (So the maximus board is prob overkill)

I also saw the Silverstone SG09 and was looking at that also since my storage needs aren't that great (though I think the TJ looks overall better)

I'm new to this and don't want to f'up anything nor purchasing. Plan to play games like GW2, WoW, Dishonored, AC3, etc and do graphic design and after effects stuff.

Thanks for any feedback. thumb.gif

Anyone in Sydney want to do a group purchase on some MDPC? tongue.gif

Thinking of sleeving cables, I'm anal about my colours. Will be ordering some Copper Brown and Vivid Violet Sleeving and maybe some Black.

Can anyone verify if I can swap out the front 180mm fan for a 140mm?

You can. There's a set of mounting holes for a 140mm.

I had issue with my front fan too. Opened the well in the fan hub; put some machine (sewing) oil in. All fixed. wink.gif

Hey guys, this is my first time posting in here, but I was hoping to get some recommendations on fitting hard drives in this case.

I have an SSD for boot, and I'm currently using an external hard drive 24/7, but I want to have 2 x 3TB in the case. I don't have a CD player, so I'm wanting to use the 5.25 bays.

The only thing I've found are these two products:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817990022

(Which I bought, and was crap. The screws broke and were stuck, and I had to throw it away.)

and

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817997018

(Which I haven't tried, but is expensive since I'd need two of these, making it almost $50)

Has anyone tried these? Or have any cheaper solutions for this case in particular?

My HD tray is removed because I don't have enough room for the SATA cables since my motherboard has them sideways.
