The cooling potential of the TJ08-E is superb due to the huge front intake fan and system configuration. The air pressure is excellent inside the case and in an air cooled rig is basically all you need, there is no need to put extra fans in the back. In fact I found the AP181 to be more than enough so replaced it with a Phobya G Silent 180mm 700rpm with a resistor to reduce the noise levels (and air flow/pressure) still using the switch for high and low speeds. This still allows me to use a modest GPU passively and keeps temps well within limits. If you only need 1 small radiator then it's fine, larger radiators will cause some difficulties especially if you want a very quiet PC.
My main concern is silence, I know I need fans and they will always produce some sound but my computer is spooky quiet. wink.gif

I would use either a 120mm rad with 120mm fan behind it (pull config) n the back of the case or a rad being blown through by the front fan, if I needed only 1 rad. I like the idea that some people have used which is a 200mm rad at the front, not sure if that would be quiet enough for me though.

I have built using both cases in the past year. The Fractal Design Arc Mini is more conventional and more focused on quiet operation. It has excellent noise dampening material and accommodates 140 mm fans. This is nice given the 140 mm water cooling kits that are becoming available (Corsair and NZXT). The 120 mm fans that come with the Mini are not very quiet so I replaced them with 140 mm fans from Corsair. Finally, the Mini isn't really very mini. It's only slightly shorter than most mid-towers.

Just a quick question, what's the best way to orient my CPU cooler? I'm still waiting on my power supply and the extra time has made me think I've installed it in a stupid position. At the moment I've got it pointing towards the floor of the case but I'm starting to think I should have it the opposite way pointing towards the back of the GPU. I didn't want to do that initially because I thought it might blow too much hot air towards the graphics card but at the same time that position makes it pretty central to where the air flow from the front fan should blow, so what do you guys recommend?

Thanks Qrash for bringing the NZXT to my attention that sounds perfect for the 3570k which I have planned as it supposed to run hotter than my 2500k .. just have to find a couple of reviews...

Here are some reviews that compare the Corsair and NZXT 140 mm (single and dual size) all in one water coolers:

http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cases_cooling/corsair_vs_nzxt_battle_of_the_aio_watercoolers/1

I found the comparison (both temperature and noise) of the water coolers to the Noctua DH-14 in the Tom's Hardware review interesting. I hope these are helpful!

Most people seem to have CPU coolers facing the rear and depending on how tall your ram is have the fan in a pull configuration exhausting to the rear.Some people also have a clearence issue with the lower HDD bays as well.

I'm using an AMD CPU which only permits upward or downward air flow so I positioned my cooler so that it blows air upwards from the bottom of the case. I'm using a Be Quiet Dark Rock Advanced cooler and in this position it gives adequate cooling. The air pressure from the fan is quite low and although I can feel it pulling cool air from below, I cannot feel any air movement coming from above the heatsink. So it appears that the front fan is adding quite a bit of cooling to the CPU cooler and moving the warm air straight to the outlets in the back of the case. The massive front fan is very powerful so does not allow warm air from the CPU cooler to reach the GPU.

If you try to blow air downwards from top to bottom, I think you might find it is less efficient.

Hi,

Can any of you give some recommendations on hydro coolers suitable for 775? Sadly the new Corsair H80i has no 775 mount.

Couple of issues have me looking in that direction, quite simply I need better HDD storage so will have to change the memory to something with lower profile to use the original drive bay, and moving from an air cooler to something attached to the rear fan mount will help too.

My BeQuiet air cooler leads to a overheat shut down if I OC my Q9550 to 3.5gb also. Need to look into this.

I had bought a Scythe hard disc stabilizer, but cant mount that due to the front panel blanking plate getting in the way.

Currently having memory issues too, 4x2gb of Corsair XMS PC-8500 will only run at PC-6500 speeds in my Maximus II Gene, any attempt to run higher won't boot.
This memory had came from a PC that kept blue screening last year, but had passed an overnight Memtest.

As the memory had passed Windows Memory Diagnostic and Memtest, that coupled with my USB ports not reading USB attached storage (kept stating I had to format them) had me assume that old PC's motherboard was failing. Guess I need to test all of it individually again.

Yeah I found that having it in the position it's in now, it's pretty much impossible to fit a hard drive in. I think I'll change it that position then, RAM shouldn't be an issue since I bought low profile sticks to be safe. Thanks for the help.

EDIT: Oh another quick question, if I reseat it should I clean and reapply the thermal paste or should it be ok since I've not actually switched it on and used it yet?

Looking to build a computer based on the TJ08-E very soon.
Any thoughts on this part list?
