Ordering my case hopefully later today or tomorrow, just want to see if/who has the h80i installed and if they've had any issues with fitting at all.

I have an AX850, and it works perfect for my needs. I suppose it all just depends if you are planning on using both 5.25 bays.

I am in love with your cable management! That is gorgeous... Any chance you could let us know what cabling and psu you used or were all these custom made!?

Hi all,

I've been lurking on this forum for such a long time and not really contributed anything towards the group, you guys (and gals) were a huge factor in why I chose to get myself the TJ08-E around February of last year.. I've got to say that this is one of the best cases I have ever owned, but it does have a few niggles.

A friend of mine just bought one to do his first PC build. He wanted to see how I had done things so this morning I took my PC into the dining room and dismantled it, then documented putting it back together so he could see what I had done. I thought I would post the 'abridged' version here for any potential purchasers to see.

Firstly I took a picture of my PC building kit, I have basically collected the various screws and bits and bobs over time, which I now have in a Stanley Tool case. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I have basically divided things into four separate containers, 1contains screws / nuts / standoffs etc; 1 contains tools; 1 contains cable tidying and heat wrap and the final one just has a load of RJ45 connectors.

Going into the case are my original components. These are as follows:
  • Motherboard: Asus Rampage Gene IV
  • CPU: Intel Core i7 3930K
  • RAM: 32GB 4x8GB Corsair Vengeance
  • GPU: Asus GTX680
  • HDD: 2 x 512GB OCZ Vertex 4 / 1 x 120GB OCZ Vertex 3 / 2 x Samsung F4 2TB
  • PSU: Silverstone Strider ST1000 1000w Fully Modular

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

One of the things I did last time I built this rig was to ghetto mount an SSD behind the motherboard tray using screws through the grate at the top. This was all fine and dandy until it came to the point when I wanted to change the SSD over from a 60GB to a 120GB. I had to totally remove the motherboard in order to change it over. To get round this problem I attached the SSD to a tray which I then stuck onto the reverse of the motherboard tray with Scotch double-sided sticky tabs.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Ghetto Mounting the SSD is a really good way of fixing it in a solid and sturdy way to the case, the trouble comes in an upgrade or RMA situation.


To get round this I attached an SSD 'tray' for want of a better word to the back of the case with Scotch pads and I can now unscrew and replace the SSD should the need arise.

Now I have come across two big issues when using the components that I have chosen. The Socket 2011 M-ATX boards have a 2 x 2 memory configuration, meaning that you have 2 sticks of ram one side of the motherboard and 2 sticks the other. The trouble with this particular chipset in this case is that if you have RAM in the side furthest from the I/O panel you CANNOT use the HDD caddy, it just will not fit.

If you are using a pre-built water cooler such as the H80, then you will also get the fan housing pushing (gently) against the RAM that is closest to the I/O panel. The position of the RAM slots on 2011 boards is just 'slightly' inconvenient.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

This was incredibly annoying as I wanted to fill it with both SSD's and also 3.5" HDD's

The other thing to remember when building this case is that if you are going to be making use of the 2 front 5 1/4" Bays at the front you will NEED to get a 150mm depth PSU. A 160mm would be excruciatingly tight. Even with a 150mm depth (totally modular) PSU I am struggling for space Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I placed the 2 OCZ Vertex 4's in the front 3.5" bay using the base of the HDD caddy. I screwed one into the lower section and then used some more scotch pads to mount the second one.

Next was the GPU, which could really do with the caddy in to give it a teeny tiny bit of support. It does sag every so slightly at the end nearest the front. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Cabling in this case is a mission and I WISH that I could do what MetallicAcid has done (check out his post a bit earlier on to see true cable management).
However I did the best I could in the time I had. I have no idea how MetallicAcid has done his so neatly, the front I/O board does have some really thick, not very bendable wires that I can't seem to find a neat way of using.

In order to use my 3.5 " HDD I purchased 2 Hot Swap (Trayless) bays to go in the top of the case, these have proved a bit of a godsend, although putting them in has made cable management REALLY difficult. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

So there you have it... My little build and rundown of the case with a 2011 Socket board. Would I recommend this case???? In a heartbeat. I love it! But with a 2011 board it is a slight pig to use.

Your idea for mounting the SSD behind the tray is fabulous! Mine is mounted in an extremely hidden place that you'd never actually find. I have mine mounted on top of my ODD with a rubber pad between the ODD and SDD. To further that, it's packed down with all of my cables so it's never going to move or become dislodged. But again, having to remove or change it if it goes bad is going to be a pain nonetheless.

You could always think about buying low profile RAM and selling yours on the OC marketplace.

For your GPU I have one suggestion that I think helped with my cards not sagging (Dual 670 FTW). Try pulling the cables pretty tightly and upwards a little bit, so that way the cable has a little resistance against the socket and is holding the GPU where it 'should' be instead of weighing it down.

Great build log mate smile.gif

I am using the Corsair AX850, with just the standard cables. I have a little more space in the 5.25 build to hide any access cables in, as I do not have a HDD caddie... It is still very tight in there smile.gif

What have you done with the front panel cables? They seem non existent in your build?

They are bundled up, secured with cable ties, and enter up through under the DVD-ROM in the 5.25 bay. Cables can be observed above the front intake fan. I will be making a plexiglass cover which will sit above the fan and below the 5.25 bay area, and possibly under the fan aswell... Just to tidy things up a bit smile.gif

I'm sure this has been asked before but I'm thinking of doing a few upgrades for my case. What adapter are you guys using to store your HDD in the 5.25" Drive Bays? Right now my WD 1tb is in the lower front of my case and it's not able to screw in.
