It's mentioned here:

This should be beneficial for tower heatsinks since the air flow channelled through the hard drive cage would blow directly onto heatsink fins. For those all-in-one sealed water cooling kits, the hard drive cage probably doesn't make much of a difference since the radiator is mounted further back compared to where a tower heatsink would sit.

The massive 180 fan can help push more air through the radiator when needed.



Hi Guys,
Just found this thread. Brilliant. I am looking at buying a Silverstone TJ08-E and have come up with the following spec.

CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K – $324.00 - Umart
Motherboard: ASUS Maximus IV Gene Z – $258.00 – Umart
RAM:G.Skill Ripjaws X F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL (4x4GB) DDR3 – $169.00 – PCCG or
RAM: 2 x G Skill 8G(2x4G)DDR3 1600Mhz PC3-12800 CL8(F3-12800CL8D-8GB) -$105
GPU- ASUS GeForce GTX 580 DirectCU II - $549.00 PCCG
SSD: Crucial M4 SSD 128GB – $279.00 – PCCG or
Optical Drive: Lite-On IHAS324 24x DVDRW – $25.00
Cooling: Antec KUHLER H2O 620 CPU Cooler – $99.00 – PCCG
Power Supply: Corsair HX-850 Power Supply – $219.00 - Umart
Case: Silverstone TJ08-E Black M-ATX/ITX Case– $190.00 - PCCG

Do you think the components wil fit?
If there are any better parts please recommend. I will be driving a 27inch monitor with just a little bit of gaming.

DaveG -I see the above picture is usign a antec watercooling unit.
How quiet does this make tyour system?


Cheers

It's not completely silent. Both this Antec unit and my Corsair H50 I had a while ago had fans the were fairly audible, so they were swapped out for low RPM, quiet fans. Both pumps though make a slight ticking noise, but that noise is about as loud as your average 1200-1400RPM 120mm fan.

I think the all-in-one WC units are louder than a good air cooler at idle, but much more quiet at load.

Mine sits on my desk about 2 feet away from my face, so low noise is a priority.

hey there everyone!

I'm in the market to get me one of these cases. Was looking into matx cases until i stumbled across this on newegg.

Here's what i'm thinking of getting;
case; TJ08-E
mobo; Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z/ECS H67H2-M
proc; Intel core i3-2100 or maybe an i5-2400
ram; Kingston HyperX 2x8GB Kit
HDD; 1x2TB HDD
SSD; maybe a 120GB for OS
PSU; maybe an NZXT Hale90 550 or a seasonic 650W X series
cooler; i dunno can a Hyper 212+ fit? i would like to populate all the hdd cage with 3.5" drives thus the inquiry.

my first question is the height clearance from the dimms to the HDD...will there be an issue?
2nd question is would i need a modular PSU or is a regular cable sleeved PSU enough?
3rd question is whats that space/holder mechanism just below the cpu socket area can that be used to hold an ssd?

Hey!
I'm also looking at buying a TJ08-E. I nearly came to the exact same conclusion than yours regarding components! Nevertheless I'd question the choice of the Antec 620. I read it was not interesting compared to air cooling. My choice would go the the Corsair H80 now that I saw in this thread that it can fit. I'd also challenge the power of the supply, 550/650W should be enough don't you think (a nice Seasonic X-series maybe)?

I am not sure about the power supply :\ I remember reading this case only has 160mm or 180mm of depth allocated for the PSU? Anymore and your modular (modular is a must in this case) will end up hitting your 5.25 Bay drives. :\

I am using a Corsair 650HX and its only 160mm iirc, fits fine, but i imagine if it was any bigger, i'd have some trouble.

1. yes, a hyper 212+ should be comfortably in this cooler. the hyper X ram you're getting isn't 'that' tall. definitely not as tall as corsair vengeance and those are the only ones that are a tight squeeze.

2. your Rams should fit with the hdd cage and the hdds connected. If you had a chance to read all 20 some pages in this thread you'd see that the clearance from mobo ram slot to hdd is about 54mm. so just make sure your ram is not longer than 52-53 mm and you should be okay.

3. you don't NEED a modular PSU but it is extremely highly recommended. You're going to have cabling nightmares with this case if you don't. and you'll end up sacrificing airflow.

4. i am not sure what you're talking about? pics?

=====
we should create a dedicated post just to FAQs (especially those RAM height clearance questions)
