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

about that last question, i found that out, been reading the chiphell review and build log. It seems what i was inquiring about was the cpu cooler support mount, found just at the inside lower corner of the case.

thanks for the quick reply though!

Now onto the part where i choose the mobo...whats say? the asus or the ECS smile.gif

I was also thinking of getting the slim desktop drives from seagate, to improve airflow throught eh HDD cage.

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.

Modular is absolutely not needed in this case - there is a nice big hole going from the PSU compartment to behind the mobo tray, with a large area to store unused cables. Unless you're worried about air circulation behind the mobo tray.

Not that is really matters, but modular PSU's are also usually a little longer than their non-modular counterparts - so if length is a concern, it might pay off to go with a non-modular PSU.

Modular may not be necessary but if you're a neat freak like me, it's nice to be able to contain all the cables in as little space as possible. Also, because of the thickness of my main 12V rail running behind along with other cords back there, I have the squeeze the back on...it bulges slightly (nothing major and I think it's bulging less with time). If my PSU weren't modular there would def be way too many cords back there. Also, having a modular PSu helps with any work on the machine as I can unplug the power from the PSU instead of the item in my case as it's quicker and easier to retain my cable management if the cables don't have to be re-threaded through all the holes (my capacity for using the english lagnuage is failing me today so i'll stop here before I ramble on too much more frown.gif)

EDIT: I know I'm not on the owner's list...I'm at work right now and my pics are at home, i'll get them posted when I get home. The light sucks in my flat though frown.gif

Hi there,

I got myself a Silverstone TJ08-E too. For the last 9 years all my computers were build in a Chilli Professional 1/4" III mATX case. I liked that little beast a lot, but for cpu's with more then 65W TDP it was too small. So I needed a new case ...

On the photographs you can see my TJ08-E and the Chilli case too. I hope these pictures qualify me to become a TH08-E Owners Club member redface.gif

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.

Thanks for the feedback Dave. I dont mind it having a little noise but dont want too much. I will play a few games in it as well occasionally.
I am not up to speed on coolers, is there a Gun airflow cooler that is very effective and very quiet instead of water cooling then?

Cheers

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)?

Great minds think alike...
Actually I was thinking of dropping the power supply to a Corsair HX- 750 Modular unit, but not sure what sprt of graphics card I will run in the future. Hence a little headroom.

Cheers

Just installed my 6970 and took some pics. Could do a better cable management job if I didn't toss away the extra modular cables from my PSU frown.gif

Would you mind posting some idle and load (preferably gaming) temps for your CPU?

I have a similar setup, 2500K+GENE-Z+GTX580DCU2, and I'm trying to decide which cooler to buy. My main concern is that my GPU cooler, much like yours, blows most of the hot air inside the case, and I'm wondering how would that affect the performance of HR-02.

Also, how's the clearance with the first memory slot? Would those fan clips be in the way of a Corsair Vengeance module (about 5 cm tall)?

Hey guys, I'm not sure if it has been posted, it literally came to my mind today and I don't recall reading it. Can anyone measure the space behind the mobo tray for me? Thanks in advance.
