+REP for that dig!

And almost the same as what I am planning. Ideal for working out what fittings I need to order.

My only problem with that build is his decision to settle for tubing and sleeving that are different shades of grey. Maybe that's what he was going for, idk. I'll probably spend some money on a variety of tubing colors so I get just the right color to match the sleeving I decide on (probably MDPC)

I'm going for white masterkleer tubing with white bitspower 45deg / 90 deg fittings (where needed) and white monsoon compression fittings. I've also gone with the corsair white braided cables for the power supply.
The only thing I definately will do different is to have both fans on the rads sucking out. Becuase of this, I am going to fit two 120mm fan filters into the base of the case so that cool air is sucked in from under the case. If I need to, I will add fans here as I really don't want any hot air blowing over any components.

While we're chatting, I'll go ahead and post my current spreadsheet for this build.

Any thoughts?

The "need" column represents what I think I would need to get in the first wave of purchases to get going. I already have RAM and a GPU, and I might as well not watercool my 560ti if a 660 (or better, depending on prices) is in the works eventually. Also, cable sleeving can wait too.

The "want" column obviously what I will eventually want, maybe a paycheck or two down the road. Current budget is $1000, thanks to a larger tax return than I initially expected.

Thoughts or critique?

I have one as well. Just need the time to get my new AX860 in and the XSPC block on the 690 and swap it in biggrin.gif

The paint coating SilverStone uses on the steel part of their cases needs revised, it simply comes off too easily. Any black paint (including the Sharpee) I use to try and cover it won't match what's already on it, I might leave it as is.

There's a chance you may be confusing paint with powder coat. On these cases, yes, the paint is pretty thin. However, most cases from other manufacturers use powder coat. The powder coat is much more difficult to scratch and holds up a lot better than paint.

When dealing with painted cases (from all vendors), you'll run into problems like this. Unfortunately, its just how it is....

On one of my builds in the TJ08, we sanded it down and powder coated it with a high gloss white. Its now super durable and won't flake. My other mod which is almost done, we're doing paint. So I do expect it to not be as durable but will still be OK.

I think I am confusing the two types of coatings. The panels on this case look shiny (paint), where-as the powder coat has a matte look to it. If I had the facilities to sand down this case and re-coat it with black powder coat, I would.

On a different subject, anyone notice the power button randomly sticks when pressed? Press it once, it stays in, fine, if I press again to eject, it sticks. Not a big problem, just something I observed considering I'll be using this button almost daily.

This is not a problem that I have encountered... Although, you could try this to fix the problem. Remove the front panel (6 screws from inside the case have to be removed), take the power button and sand it down 1mm.

Hi,
first of all, this thread made me want to swap my Lian-Li V354 case to the Silverstone TJ08-E, and so I did. I still think the V354 is a good and even better looking case, but on the inside, it lacks some important features like cable-management possibilities, support for really wide gpus (the psu gets in the way) and so on.

I kept some parts from my old build, but replaced GPU from a 6950 to the Asus Matrix 7970. Also, I changed my H50 to the Dark Rock Pro 2 from Be Quiet. (I read in this thread that it would fit, however, it ditn't on my board.. I am still using the Rampage Gene III so I am on the 1366 socket) As you can see in my picture, it hangs/rests on the side of the case making the side panel impossible to put on, so I needed to make minor ghettomod adjustments to the door.

I am super happy with this build, and I will gladly recommend the case to anyone who asks. I will begin making smaller mods to the case, and I am thinking about adding a window to it. I will also get rid of the optical drive, or get a slim slot-in, to have more space for that huge front-panel USB cable wink.gif

Anyway, here is my build, and I will probably see you in this thread in the future!!

Big cooler hanging out



I would present a view from the top, but I need to work a bit more on cables there.. smile.gif

Hi frutte and welcome to the TJ08-E Club! You have a nice clean build. Lately we've seen mostly water-cooled setups so an all air-cooled system is refreshing. It's too bad about your CPU heatsink not quite fitting. It doesn't look like it needs much more room. Perhaps your window mod can provide the extra space needed. Keep us updated.
