I like their stuff too. I just wish it wasn't in brown/beige or whatever color it is in. I have two boxes with their coolers.

They look great and they have amazing reviews. I was having such a hard time deciding between that or the Phantek PH-TC14PE that I ended up just getting the CoolMaster Hyper 212 Evo and the Cougar fans. I'm planning to eventually run a closed loop system, so we'll get back to cooling later.

I don't think you could go wrong with Noctua for air cooled. tongue.gif

Hello everyone!

My tj08-e should be at my doorstop when I get home from work biggrin.gif

Will be moving my current build into it -->

i2500k w/ Corsair H50
Asus Maximus Gene-IV Z68
Galaxy GTX 560TI 448
4x4GB GSkill sniper
180GB Intel 520
1 TB Samsung F1

My current case is a giant ugly thermaltake element V full tower with front panel usb and audio ports that do not work. This will be my first real attempt at a nice looking, clean build! Wish me luck!

I’m building a new rig with My tj08-e and wondered what best configuration for my three hard drives and Prolimatech Megahalems heat sink would be?

there’s no way my 120mm Fan is gonna fit on hard drive side of cooler and I already have a Nexus BASIC D12SL-12 120mm fan as an out take. What would happen if everything blew inward. My video card is a Radeon HD 6450(small). If heatsink fan is directly adjacent to outtake fan won’t they work against each other?

What if rear case fan blows in? 180mm intake plus 120 mm intake on rear shooting straight into heat sink fan (no out take). Would that type of positive pressure be effective, all the heat hypothetically moving out the grills near vid card?

1: Put them in the optical bay and not use the hdd bay. (more space for cpu fan)

2: Unscrew the hdd bay and turn it sideways with the cables facing the back of the case. reattach with velcro thumb.gif(more space for cpu fan)

i have an optical drive in top bay. could put one drive up there, one on bottom and something else with 3rd one.

thank you very much for suggestions. you got me thinking of options. i could return Megahalems. maybe that corsair h60 thing? i feel more secure with air in case water device fails and i liked the dampening of the drive cage, wish the whole thing faced sideways as installed.

won't i defeat benefit of front fan with bay sideways?

I went watercooling for this reason. I couldn't stand to give up the hard drive bank or the push fan on the heatsink. And turning the hard drive bay sideways concerned me for the reason you just listed. The bay converter is a good idea if it'll fit all the hard drives you need, and it's a nice clean option. There's this one if you want an optical drive:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817997041&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-pla-_-SSD%2f+HDD+Accessory-_-N82E16817997041&gclid=CJKd9p6YjbUCFU966wodFEUAKg

As for watercooling, I've heard nothing but good about the Corsair AIO systems. I liked the idea of custom designing one, so I spent a bunch of money and built something that's probably over-complicated, but an H60i or H80i fits in this case no problems and will give you much better cooling than an air heatsink with no push fan.

While the two opposing intake fans idea is interesting, I don't think it would be effective. Heatsinks are designed for directed airflow, and what you'd have is lots of turbulence and positive pressure for sure, but mostly stagnant air in the cooling fins. At that point I'd think you'd be better off with just the pull fan if you were staying with air.
