Silverstone TJ08-E Owners Club. - Page 267

post #2661 of 7203
I had a quick question. I have already built and ordered my SilverStone TJ08-E without a wireless card. I have an old USB wifi adapter (wireless b/g), but wanted something a little better for this computer. I am going to have a GTX 690 plugged into the Rampage IV Gene and I was wondering if there is enough room in this case for an Asus PCE-N15? Or, should I stick with a USB wifi adapter? I am very far away from my router and internet socket, so cables are out of the question, for now.

Thanks

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.

Hey, I mounted my harddrive in the bays using some cable. It is suspended and completely quiet in there as is. This would work for 2 harddrives. The SSD can be mounted on the backside or anywhere really.

EDIT: Something like this, except I used much nicer looking cables. suspended_drive.jpg

Hi people,

Stumbled upon this thread/site soon after deciding to use the TJ08-E as the case for my first ever PC build. I've basically settled on the following components for my multitasking PC.

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K
CPU HSF: Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO
Mobo: AsRock Z77 Pro4-M
RAM: G.Skill Ares F3-1600C10D-16GAO 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3
SSD: SanDisk Extreme 240GB
HDD: N/A (possibly add in a WD Green 2TB or other 3.5in drive at a later date, will use my 1TB external usb3.0 drive in the meantime...)
GPU: N/A (may add a card later when I feel ready/that I need it)
Case: Silverstone TJ08-E
PSU: Antec High Current Gamer 520W-M
ODD: Lite-On IHAS324 24x DVDRW
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit with SP1 OEM $99

The reason I've slipped the CM 212 in there is to keep the temps low and also the whole system quiet. I'd also like to dabble with a moderate 4.0-4.5ghz OC at some stage. Will likely slip a standalone GPU card in when I'm ready as well. Would the build be capable of this?

Also, been inspired by the impressive cable/case management in this thread. Mine may be more subtle than extravagant, but any tips would be handy as it's my first build.

With cooling, should I be looking to use an exhaust fan? What would you recommend for a cooling setup?

Thanks
Have you checked out powerline adapters ?

I know its that easy but minor things i am thinking about just make me to go ahead and get a whole new case.

Like with the PS07 i can put all my case badges / stickers on the case and i can have every fan in there a noctua, And various other minor reasons.

Having this case for a spare though will most definitely be used in my next build.

Need a fast answer if possible!

I plan on ordering 16GB of Ram tomorrow! I have a coupon code that was sent to me E-mail, was wondering if this set of ram would fit in the case:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226337

Gigabyte G1 M3 Sniper Motherboard
Most likely a Antec 620 CPU Cooler.

I am worried about clearance.

How is the ram going to have any clearance issues with an all in one liquid cooler? serisouly?!

Sorry, new to this.

What about the Hard Drive cage? Will a 1Tb drive hit the heat sinks?
post #2670 of 7203
Hello all,

Great thread, lots of info and ideas. Plan on using this case for my 3rd build (1st one for me!). I also have looked at the LIAN LI A05FNB but it is almost 4.5" longer than the TJ108B-E. Other dimensions were very close. I'm striving to build a small, fast and quiet system (isn't everyone!) that will be used mainly for Photoshop, browsing and MS Office. No gaming.

Here are the main build components I plan on using in this case:
  1. ASRock Z77 Pro4-M motherboard
  2. i5 3570K CPU
  3. Samsung 2x4GB DDR3 1600 SDRAM - really low profile!
  4. Samsung 830 Series 128GB SATA III SSD
  5. Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA III HDD
  6. Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler
  7. Noctua NF-S12B FLX 120mm fan - for rear exhaust. Ugly and expensive but very quiet and effective from what I've heard. Open to other suggestions.
  8. Corsair VX550 PSU - bought a couple of years ago but never used. Should be more than sufficient for my purposes. One drawback-not modular.
  9. AFT XM5U All-in-one USB 2.0 3.5" Card Reader - will use in bottom 3.5 bay
  10. Rosewill RX-C200P 2.5" SSD / HDD Plastic Mounting Kit for 3.5" Drive Bay - cheap but should work for mounting SSD in cage. Open to suggestions/alternatives.

I do a lot of CD and DVD copying so I will be using both upper 5.25 optical drive bays. Already have these. Don't plan on adding a discrete VGA card unless the 3570K's HD4000 graphics really suck.

My questions:
  1. Using the CM cooler with the WD HDD in the cage I would assume that I will have to remount the CM fan and use it in a Pull config. Correct?
  2. Using the AP front fan, the CM reversed CPU fan in Pull config and the Noctua S12B FLX as an exhaust fan will this be an effective and quiet air flow setup?
  3. The ASRock board has a 4 pin PWM CPU fan header and a 4 pin PWM Cha_1 header. I could hook up the AP fan to the Cha_1 4 pin and the CM fan to the CPU 4 pin for speed control and let the Noctua run off the Cha_2 3 pin fan. The Noctua has options to run at 600, 900 or 1200 RPM using power cable restrictors. Would I be better off connecting all three fans with something like a Akasa 3 fan PWM splitter and control all three through the CPU fan header? Am I over thinking this?nerdsmiley.png

I know I could use an external card reader and an external eSata or USB 3.0 HDD and not use the cage at all like I've seen in several build pictures here but I would prefer keeping everything inside the case.

Again, I really like the potential of this case and TIA for any comments or suggestions.
