I have a 170mm length Blu Ray drive in mine that installed flush with just enough clearance for cables.

Just curious, for a future upgrade, what PSU make/Model is fitted and whether it was that or the Blu Ray drive that was longer than ideal.

Thanks, the PSU is a corsair AX850. The issue of the clearance is due to there being 2 HDDs mounted directly below the optical drive with 5mm of clearance at most (they didn't use to be so close but had to move them up due to the radiator). If I was to completely rewire the computer I could get the drive flush but I only noticed the issue when I finishing off the last details and putting the last bits back in there place; after 2 days of getting everything on the cooling system just right I had to weigh up whether the hassle was worth it for something that I can easily ignore. I know it's abit of a shame but at some point I'll put it right, probably when I upgrade the HDDs. If it wasn't a half decent blu-ray drive I would have got rid of it all together and just use an external drive I have for a laptop I put an SSD in.

Is this case due for an update or refresh anytime soon?

Why do you ask that, what would you hope to change ?

I have been thinking about that question and have decided there are a couple of things that would make this case a lot better.

First I would like to see it made from thicker gauge steel, this would be a big improvement in my opinion. It would also benefit from some panel dampening too. (I have fitted some after market dampening and it makes a huge difference but some of it has fallen off mad.gif)

Second, I would like to see better fixings for the top panel and front panel, those little screws are way too small and the threads will strip very easily, there is a limited number of times you can remove and replace them before the threads become useless. The front panel screws are a little awkward to access too making replacement of the front panel very fiddly unless you have a long slim screwdriver.

Does anybody else have any ideas for improvements ?

I'd like to see better paint on the next case, a quieter fan. Maybe ditch the 3.5 bay for more space. And only 1 5.25 bay. I like the amount of air the 180mm penetrator fan moves buts easily the loudest part of my system.

Plus it has been a couple years since the released the tj08-e so I was curious. May switch to the ps07 or the sg10 in the future.

I replaced the Silverstone AP181 fan with a Phobya 18 G Silent 700RPM black fan and used the original switch with a resistor to reduce the speed to 450 RPM, that means I can run it at full speed if I want but so far it's not been necessary. I tried various resistors and speed settings for the AP181 but it had to go. The Phobya fan is much quieter than the AP181 and the airflow is perfectly adequate at 450rpm for my modest system. It will even cool the GPU and CPU passively if I'm not stressing them too much.

I haven't noticed any problems with the paint on mine but I would not expect it to be any less durable than any other painted case,

Well I am still running an old 775 system rolleyes.gif.

What solutions have others found for mounting an HDD above/below the optic drive? I would like to modify the upper 5.25 drive bays blanking plate, as currently it stops me from fitting a Scythe HDD stabilizer kit.

I have already ordered a new graphics card, it may be bottlenecked by the Q9550, but I decided an MSI HD 7950 Twin Frozr III Boost Edition 3072MB would probably be sufficient for a single 24" 120hz 1920x1080 monitor. It can be used later in a new build anyway and should be an improvement over the current HD4780 and HD5750 GPU's I have. It was on offer at £220 with two free games.

I still want to make more space in here though, I can replace my Dominator GT with lower profile XMS that I have. It allows me to use the HDD cage but the CPU cooler still gets in the way. I would like to use the HDD cage as it would allow me to utilise some old 1tb Sammy F3 in a Windows Stripped software array.
As such I could do with a better CPU cooler, possibly a closed water loop such as a Corsair H80i but that has no 775 plate. My current BeQuiet Advanced will not cool the CPU well at reasonable overclocks, the PC shuts down after a short period running 3,5Ghz due to CPU overheating.

So I am still looking for recommendations on closed water loops to attache to the rear 120mm fan mount. Suitable for a 775 system, and I a wondering if any of the newer models may be suitable. Or if there are specific models recommended that suit 775?

The Maximus II Gene seems to not like running my XMS at the rated 1066 settings, and reverts to a 400 setting instead of 533. So I have to address memory. Some Google hunting for subject threads so far have been unfruitful.

I am planning on continuing with 775 until Haswell or boredom get the better of me, last time I was going to upgrade, other interests milked my cash then news of Haswell came out. Sorting out the above issues will serve a new build later, so I guess it is worthwhile.

If I can sort out an SSD, and CPU cooler, it leaves me only having to worry about a Haswell CPU, Micro ATX board, and memory. IF Haswell does not require a different cooler!

i hope you get bored soon biggrin.gif

the BeQuiet advanced should be plenty of a cooler for haswell since haswell has lower TDP then your current chip. there is no point in spending money trying to upgrade tech as old as 775 when you can save the $ towards a new build. personally, dial down the OC on your 775 to the point that your current cooler can handle it and just ride out the rest of it's useful life till you get haswell, then just transplant the cooler to haswell and start your new build.

general rule of thumb, never spend $ on old tech when it comes to computers.

I'd like to see the option for a windowed panel. Also, I'd like to see Silverstone's bay adapters like the FP58 support slim tray-load optical drives, not just the much more expensive slot-load drives.

I believe the new Haswell 1150 socket will have the same mounting hole design as the current 1155 (and the earlier 1156). I think I read this on AnandTech recently.
