Next step will be the watercooling. Soon.

where did you find the adapter ? I couldn't find it on Frozen CPU

I've finally finished my TJ08-E build!

First take on the cable management so the back panel is a little bit messy, plus seasonic's cables were so stiff.

Next purchase would be an HSF and a mechanical keyboard. Any suggestion for the cooler?

add me on the owners list tongue.gif

Merry Christmas!

Can someone tell me why I am unable to control the fan with the speedfan settings in the Asus suite? I can view the fan; but I cannot adjust it at all.
Is this because the 7V adapter fixes the RPM or do I have to connect it another way to vary the speed. I have no problem as it is running now; but not sure if it would need to ramp up at some point in the future.
Thanks!



The specs for your Phobya fan show that it is a 3 pin fan. As such it does not have a 4th wire that is required to control the fan speed via the motherboard and will be a fixed speed fan, except for the low voltage 7 Volt option - so it seems that it will not be PWM speed controllable via the motherboard or ASUS fan Expert control. The specs show that It should run at 700 RPM at 12 volts -at 17db which seems to be the similar to the original Silverstone 180mm. I find that the original Silverstone fan seems relatively quiet and only starts to change pitch from just under 800 RPM. So, I keep mine around 770 RPM.

I used to run an Antec 200 (I bought it thirty bucks on sale when I built), and that thing was built sturdier than this TJ08-E, and if it weren't for the ridiculous number of high RPM 120mm fans I had hooked up to that thing, it was actually pretty quiet.
The TJ08 just doesn't feel as sturdy (it's like a dainty little toy, really), but I'm fine with that. It's a lot prettier than the 200, but sometimes I feel like I should have bought another Antec with the hundred bucks I dropped on this case.
Oh yeah, the front 180mm is really loud on lowest speed setting too. I'm thinking of buy a pair of Noctua 120mm fans and ghettorigging a PS07 style dual 120 intake.
BUT DAT BRUSHED ALU, IT MAKES UP FOR EVERYTHING tongue.gif

What make/model of HDD are you using to make a noise such as you describe ? I only run a Seagate Barracuda 1TB [ 7200:14 ) in the very bottom under the HDD cage and I am very rarely ever aware that it is there.

Anyone manged to install H100i in TJ08-E?
Or I should go with H80i ?

I think the only way to get an H100 in would be to take the front fan out... H80 fits on the rear 120 area.

Thanks for the information. I am new to building so I wasn't aware this fan can't be controlled via typical ways. I just didn't like the noise from the Silverstone fan and everyone was recommending this fan as a low noise replacement. I guess it's quiet because it only runs on a low RPM.

With the 7V adapter I use I have monitored it's running anywhere from 200-400 RPM so far; not sure how it is fluctuating though? I might try it without that adapter and see what happens.

I just hope it will ramp up to the max. of 700 RPM if the system needs the cooling; though I don't know how that will actually be controlled and happen. I'll just continue to monitor it during my initial benchmark testing of the system I hope to do soon.

Thanks again!
