SilverStone really should have made the USB 3.0 header with a 90 degree connector, or at least include an adapter. doh.gif
OK thanks! Here's the build I have planned. Half them I've ordered.

SilverStone TJ08-E
ASUS M4GZ (bought)
i5 2500K
EVGA Superclock vs Megahalems (not sure)
AMD 6970 2GB original reference (have)
Xonar Essence STX (have)
G.Skill Sniper 16 GB CAS9 1.35v
Spinpoint F3 x2 (have)
Crucial M4 128GB
Silverstone 750W Gold with the short cable set vs Seasonic X560 (not sure)'
I also have a bunch of AP-15s lying around that I can plug up any remaining spaces for fans.

I'm just not sure about the cooler or the PSU. I don't know whether the longer cables on the X560 will hinder the build but at the same time the Silverstone route is a lot more expensive while being a worse overall performer than the X560. The EVGA Superclock is a pretty small tower cooler and I thought it would be better to get that instead to reduce overall weight and save space.

I just got mine in last week. already mounted my Rosewill lightning 1300 and my blueray drive. I am buying all my components when there is a big sale on them. (And I am waiting for Ivy bridge; and the X79 to launch). I need to cram 4 hdds into the tower 2 1.5tb raid 0, and 2 2tb storage, plus a 120gb ssd. the SSd clearance is simple, just hide it on the bottom. What do you all think is the largest cpu cooler I can cram in there without messing wtih my HDDs? I have 90deg sata and power cables for em.

All of you seem to be finished with your builds, you will have more knowlege of this than i can figure out.

but no one really knows the layout of the performance x79 mATX boards will be. I hope they launch a x79 with 8 dimm slots and 2xpci-e3.0. but if they do, that will screw up placement for any cooler i buy now. decisions decisions!

Any input would be killer!

For that HDD setup you'd be better off buying a WC cooler.

I havnt ever actually done watercooling before :3

So, I would suppose that one of those all in one baddies would be the best deal for me then. especially for the size of the case.

With those all you have to do is clean them out every once in awhile and replace the coolant?

Do you know any that I can do a push pull config with, preferably to be used with 120mm fans out the back? Is there a particular one that you'll recomend?

please and thanks!

Those Corsair and Antec units are closed loops that don't require any cleaning or flushing.

They also all work in Push/Pull.

The Antec 620=H60/H50
The Corsair H70/80=Antec 920.

Approximately that is^

The H80 is the best performing but only just fits with a dual fan setup.

Hey,

Working out my new rig, want to go for something quiet and portable.
Just wondering if anyone could tell me if this is crazy or share thoughts

i5-2500k
gigabyte GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3
8GB of mem
Thermalright HR-02 Macho (passive)
Seasonic X-460W fanless
and of course a Silverstone Temjin TJ08-E

I already have an Asus 6870 DirectCU (doesn't directly vent to exterior of case.
Also, already have a Vertex 3, and won't be using any other disks.

I'd like to run the cpu heatsink without a fan and utilize the 180mm front case fan.
I won' t be overclocking the cpu in this config.
Thanks for any replies. Love this case.

Thanks guys, I honestly didnt know that (which now i realize why they never mentioned anything about changing coolant, *light goes on*). I will prob go with the 'best' one you can recommend, because...I dont have air-conditioning during the summer. And my rooms sits at about 100F/38C during the summer, yea not fun.

So, I guess I will go with the H80 and replace the fans with the noctua ones (since i already bought 1 120mm exaust fan).

But of course, they push Ivy back again and now I have to wait. but it give me more time for RESEARCH!



PapaG:

That looks like a pretty good setup. The z68 is the best board currently for use with SSD (for both OS drive and for caching), and the layout of the board is pretty good too. although, that particular board does not get very good reviews on newegg (but that is the only place I checked). I personally love EVGA boards, and they are around the same price point. (z68 micro atx only available on NCIX or Evga's websites). But, if you have good luck with a particular company, I try to stick with them.

I would recommend leaving the HDD bay in to help direct airflow towards the cooler. That 180mm fan has a hi lo switch, so can test the performance on both settings and see if you have to install the fan or not. But that cooler the right at the max height and width for the case, so passive cooling will work the best with it. I think it will be alright due to copper heat pipes they do the best job grabbing heat away from the processor. This case is good for passive PSUs because of the vent directly above the PS (good match!) and it is 80plus gold so you care about the environment!

I dont think the heat off your vid card is not a concern. there are plenty of vents around it and that 180 will push that stuff out.

I hope this helps you some. Hit the community back with questions!

The superclock will fit. you might have to change the orientation of the cooler for hdd clearance, but I agree with the others, liquid cooling might be a better option.
You can always pick up extensions for 10ish dollars, but my Rosewill lightning 1300 (also comes in 1KW and 800) cables are plenty long for me.
the memory looks good (clears the hdd cage if you have drives in all 4 slots).
