Silverstone TJ08-E Owners Club. - Page 304

post #3031 of 7171
TJ08-E or PS07 or ???

My planned "cool and quiet" non-gaming build:

  • Silverstone TJ08-E or PS07 case
  • Seasonic SS-400FL 400W fanless 80 plus gold
  • Gigabyte GA-H77M-D3H (no overclocking)
  • Intel i7-3770S (65W TDP)
  • CPU cooler (still looking)
  • 8GB RAM (2x4GB) Crucial Ballistix Tactical DDR3 1600 (8-8-8-24)
  • no video card (using the integrated HD 4000 graphics)
  • Plextor M3 128GB SSD drive (boot drive, Windows 7)
  • 3.5" hard drive
  • optical drive (in top 5.25" external bay)
  • 3.5" card reader (in TJ08-E lower bay, or in PS07 second 5.25" bay)


With its external 3.5" bay for the card reader, the TJ08-B is a tempting choice. But some reviews say:

  • the 180mm fan is somewhat noisy (and there are few aftermarket 180mm options)
  • the 180mm fan makes a clicking sound even at low speeds
  • the case is prone to vibration from a hard drive

If these issues arise in my build, I'd need to swap out the 180mm fan for a quieter one (or a 140mm fan, for which there are more options), and I'd need to mount the hard drive in the second 5.25" bay (on the theory there would be more damping choices in a large bay). The SSD would go in the hard drive cage.

Alternatively, I could go with the PS07, install the card reader in the second 5.25" bay, and install the hard drive in either the hard drive cage or the lower 3.5" cage, whichever produces less vibration. If the two 120mm fans are noisy, there are lots of aftermarket options.

Any comments and suggestions will be appreciated.

(thanks again to squishysquishy and saran008 for their prior input)

I just installed the FP58 and FP55 in my TJ08E. Took forever to do it, but it's done.

Word of warning: the FP55 says you can keep your existing bay cover, and the manual says that if there's a space shortage, the FP55 can go deeper into the case to give the original cover space to go into place. With the TJ08-E, there's a slight problem with that. The stock cover doesn't naturally fit over the top of the FP55, but even with a standard sized PSU, there's not enough space behind it to push it back further. The only solution I has was to force the face onto the FP55 outside of the case and then squeeze it into the chassis. It will fit, just about, but requires a fair bit of force.

Having said that, I'm glad I've got it now. FP58 on top with the slot loading disc drive, and the stock plate below it hiding my HDD and SSDs. Now the bottom of the case is empty and ready for watercooling. wheee.gif

Hey guys! I just scanned through a few hundred pages of the thread and have seen some builds that I thought were impossible without extensive modding so hell yeah!

The "bad" news is that you may have convinced me to spend a healthy block of my money on an entirely redone build, but before that, I have a few question to which I couldn't find the answer anywhere.

With the Magicool 180mm front rad in (and a 25mm thick fan), can anybody state the clearance there is for a GPU? If I can't fit my 6990 w/ waterblock in there, this build would be pretty meaningless. Alternatively, I don't know much about the standard mATX board, so in the event that the GPU is too big, is it possible to mount it so high in the case that it goes above the rad?

At the rate it's going, if my GPU fits, I'll be joining the club in late November!

Using the stock 180mm fan (1.25in) and the magicool radiator, there is room for 11.87in card length. I looked up the spec on the newegg site for the xfx 6990 and it shows at 12.3inches.

With a 25mm fan, there should be a total of 12.14inches if my math is right. Honestly it MIGHT fit since the remainder of the card might tuck into the radiator since there is a gap from the fan mount and where the fins start. I cant measure that gap since I have a push/pull setup and taking the pull fan off would be a pain

Basically good luck, almost a 50/50 chance it will or wont work

Hey guys, I'm about to buy this case but I don't know if I should buy a 120 fan for the rear or just leave it. 

 

Does an exhaust fan make any difference? If so, by how much, and what kind of fan should I use?

 

Thanks.

Depends, what kind of CPU heatsink are you going to be using?

The case was designed not to have one. Airflow from the 180mm front fan should be ok no matter what cooler you have,

Does anyone know where to get this?

Planning to shift my 2 x 3.5" hdd up to the 5.25" bay, was looking for a suitable bay converter. I managed to get this however it didn't really fit. One reason it didn't fit was because of the original 5.25" bay covers. It blocks the bracket hence I can't screw the bracket to the case.

I'll take a quick pic tonight, and proper pictures when I get my watercooling stuff around this time next month.

It's called the Nexus Double Twin. I bought mine from Aqua Tuning, but they appear to be out of stock (there and everywhere else too). I didn't like it too much because the rubber would always make it difficult to screw it into the case.
If you can't find the Double Twin, you might be interested in the NoiseBlocker X-Swing. It's pretty much the same thing but more expensive, last I checked.
