personally i prefer the TJ08-E over the PS07. but i cant imagine running the AP181 w/o some kind of fan control. fortunately, the AP181 is not so heavy of a fan that it couldn't run off a standard mobo header, so you can dial in the noise level through the mobo fan control with speedfan or the fan control software that comes with your mobo or even within bios itself.

I don't have any experience with the FM181 but people are saying that will solve all our problems:

The Phobya fan was supposed to be quieter, but I can't get them in NZ.

I've been away from the thread a while mostly because there was no updates on my build. However, I'm doing a major overhaul on my TJ08 and will be posting pics along the way so prepare yourselves! thumb.gifbiggrin.gif
post #3714 of 7160
Has anyone flipped the PSU in the TJ08-E ? I'd assume so considering the thread size.

I'm opting for full air cooling, thinking of mounting PSU upside down.
Specs will be 1xHIS 5850 GPU (Air, stock cooling) and Noctua cooler (dual fan) on CPU - Noctua cooler (back) and front fan dropped to low speed.
Aiming for extremely quiet, no video overclock, marginal CPU overclock

I was under the impression that it depends on your graphics card cooler. If its the blower style and you mount the psu upside down, you can cause the card to run hotter as the psu draws the fresh air away from the card. If you have the kind of card that dumps hot air into the case, the psu being upside down is supposed to be the best method.

Has anyone used corsair dominator GT ram with a full hdd rack? Or would that not fit?

I guess I'll just monitor it and try both - it can't hurt to try - I'll document it.
99% sure the 5850 pulls air from in the case, blows it out the back.

Just done some initial work on mine - it's not bad, it could be better.
Scratch rumours - I haven't confirmed but you can tell from the feel of the paint - definitely potential problem.

A couple of tweaks would be good, it's not perfect - I'd like to see a second generation one with some work done on it, it's definitely a good base.

If it's a reference 5850 then yes, it's an EE card. Mount the PSU with it's fan upwards so that it's airflow is completely isolated from the rest of the system.

No matter what kind of GPU cooling, I can't see any reason for mounting the PSU fan-down unless you have exceptionally poor ventilation. The case has been designed for fan-up PSU mounting.

The manual says if you have gpus that exhaust into the case to mount the fan upside down because the psu draws some of the hot air out of the case like that.
