Many thanks, unlucky that is not possible for me, as the cost of sending the case back to us, and later to here it would be a lot.
I'm happy with the dampening material, just not with the chipped paint, and not sure if something else is missing.

In fact i have bought dampening material, so is just fine.
Will check what i could do to repair the parts that are damaged. Nevertheless the overall is fine i would said an 8/10.
Is just that is not cheap, and i paid for a brand new.

Thanks again for replying 66racer and Indigo340
Will provide the photos of my rig once I'm able to build it.

I'm from Argentina, here is not easy to obtain a Silverstone case, but i just received my TJ08-E from abroad.

Once is complete will add a photo to show that is mine smile.gif
Although owner's list is not being updated.

I've a few questions about the case, my came with paint being damaged on many places, and also has some kind of acoustic dampen material on the sides panel. It didn't included any molex to 3pin fan connector.
(Just remember that I haven't checked if is already attached to the fan)

So i'm a bit worry that is not brand new, that it was refurbished or returned.
Could you tell me how are your sidepanels? (if they include the dampen material or anything like that)
How could I repaint the parts where paint wore off?

The Quality is not what i would expect for it's price here, but used to have a Lian Li, so It was a bit hard to amaze me.

Nevertheless I like it a lot, and just expect to pass the exam time on college to start building it.

Thanks for reading thumb.gif

Whom or where did you buy it from? Definitely seems like you got a used case. If you bought it from a retailer, I would complain loudly and demand they pay for shipping there and back in addition to getting a new replacement. Worth a shot anyway.

Otherwise, if you can't fix it yourself, try searching for parts only, like a new side panel. Silverstone doesn't seem to sell parts at their site, but I haven't really looked elsewhere.

Same here, big difference. Aluminum is nice for case material, but vibrates so much more than steel.

AMD FX-8320 Vishera 3.5GHz
Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3 (Rev 4.1)
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB)
HIS Radeon HD 6850 (needs upgraded cooler)
Corsair H60 Water Cooling System
CORSAIR CX500M 500W PSU

and im upgrading all of the fans with cougar vortex HDB 140/120mm fans.
http://www.cougar-world.de/en/products/479/vortex-hdb.html

Havent decided on the hard drive setup yet. Can always do that last. Gotta figure out what im gonna buy for the 6850, TRAD2 was my first choice with a couple slim fans. Gotta pop my current case open and verify that its a reference card.

Didn't really test out the H80i because it was stupidly loud. All I can compare is the idle temps and the D14 is about 5 degrees cooler whilst being considerably quieter but not quite silent.

Looking at getting a fan controller to slow down the AP-15s but can't find a decent one that has a nice black aluminium front.

Man the H80i isnt noisy, i bought one to replace my D14, the H80i is more complicated, but it doesnt interfere with videocards.
Also ive set the profile to quiet and temps are better with the stock paste.

arc mini as far as i know, is made of a cheaper quality material,and has a cheap plastic front bezel, part of the reason i chose the TJ08-E over the arc mini in the first place

Arc Mini seems a little weak by comparison to the TJ08-E. But the Define Mini is a solid case. Easily more solid than our lovely TJ08-E but I still love my TJ08-E. I wouldn't go from the Tj08-E to the Arc Mini. Define mini maybe if you wanted a door/more silent case. But even then... Eh. My Tj08-E build is absolutely silent as it is; with no fancy foam or anything. Just a fan controller and an extremely quiet GPU. Lol

I have been looking for another case to replace mine as well just to put something new together, especially if I give haswell a try, but I honestly cant find something that comes close to this case. The only thing I might do is the corsair 350D but hate how much bigger than the tj08e it is. Only nice thing is that it will have better air flow if I decide to SLI.

I'll be honest. If the 350D existed before I bought my TJ08-E. I don't think I would've gone the TJ08-E route. Sorry guys Lol. But it's size does bother me a bit. It's more like a smaller mid-tower rather than an m-atx build. No different than the Bitfenix Prodigy being m-atx size as an ITX case.

I personally am moving into ITX soon anyway... (Lian Li's Campaign-based M1).. So it's a non-factor regardless for me.

The 350D is probably the only case I'd bother moving into from the TJ08-E at that sort of size (though again noting the 350D is a good deal bigger than the TJ08-E)

Hi guys,

I was hoping to build a watercooled SLI rig using the TJ08-e.

I'm wondering whether or not it'd be better to water cool the graphics cards (2x Gigabye gtx 670's SLI) or not, considering you can only fit a 180mm + 120mm Rad in the TJ08-e.
I have read that in air-cooled mATX SLI builds, one card can run 20 degree C hotter than the other. But will the whole thing run even hotter with only 2 single rads?

This was my proposed rig (going for a black/blue/UV theme):

Main Components

CPU: Intel i7 3820
Mobo: MSI X79MA-GD45
HDD: Seagate 3TB
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB
RAM: Corsair Vengeance CML16GX3M4A1600C9B 16GB
GPU: Gigabyte Gtx 670 (2x SLI)
PSU: Silverstone Strider Plus 750W ST75F-P
Case: Silverstone TJ08-e

Watercooling

CPU WB: XSPC RayStorm CPU Block
GPU WB: Heatkiller GPU-X3 GTX 680 Hole Edition Ni-Bl + Backplate (x2)
Reservoir: Monsoon Series Two Premium dual bay reservoir
Pump: Swiftech MCP655 Pump PWM -
Radiators:
  1. XSPC EX120 Radiator
  2. Magicool Extreme 180mm x 35mm Slim Radiator
Fans:
  1. Corsair SP120 High Performance Edition 120mm PWM
  2. Phobya 180mm G-Silent 18 LED Fan 700RPM Blue LED
Heatkiller GPU-X Series Dual Link Bridge Block
XSPC FLX Tubing Clear UV 1/2ID 3/4OD 2m
+ Compression Fittings

Thoughts?
