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.

This isn't just the 2011 boards. Because the MB mounts upside down in this case, more than likely everybody's RAM slots are near the drive cage. I have a Z77 board and have the same issue. The problem is the heatsinks on the RAM are too tall. Normal sized RAM modules fit just fine. I swapped out the RAM in my build and am able to use the drive cage.

Re Your Post #13 of 3353 re. TJ08-e PSU orientation.

I disagree that the TJ08-e PSU should be fitted with the fan facing downwards.

I emailed Silverstone re. the PSU orientation as stated in their manual . They advised that THE MANUAL IS INCORRECT ie they made a mistake. .

My email and their reply
=====================================
Dear Mr. John:



Thank you very much for purchasing SilverStone.

We’re sorry that TJ08-E’s manual was wrong, please install your Seasonic X660 with its fan facing top.

Thank you for remind us about this, we will correct this mistake immediately.


Best Regards,

Albert Chang

Hi I have recently purchased one of the subject cases and a Seasonic X660 power supply which I bought before I chose the case. The Manual suggests to fit the Power Supply with the fan at the bottom if the fan is over 120mm. My Question is: Would this still apply to the X series Seasonic which has a temperature controlled fan that does not start until the unit reaches 20 degrees C.? I was also concerned that by fitting the PS with the fan at the bottom, the Power Supply will only draw in hot system air instead of ambient from the room outside.

I have bought some cheap adapter which is just 2 metal brackets which screw onto each side of the HDD, then into the 5.25 bay. I can't find a product for you as I live in sweden, but it looks something like this.

Those make noise though. They rattle like crazy. The higher quality ones are better xD

If you look at the screw holes in the back of the case for the PSU, the case is obviously designed to be able to mount the PSU either way. Which way is best honestly depends on one's system and preferences. Fan down will help cool graphics cards that vent into the case while making the PSU fan work harder. Possibly make it quieter overall, possibly not. Fan up will keep the PSU quiet, but do nothing for the inside of the case.

I'd say if your graphics card vents outside of the case, the PSU should be fan up. Putting it fan down would just make it compete with the graphics card for the same air. Otherwise, you're gonna have to experiment to figure out what's best for your system. But I wouldn't say fan down is wrong.
