Sidegraded to 4770 from 2500k since there is a deal that I can't resist. Also threw in a Thermalright Venomous X black to replace the Antec Kuhler 620 since I'm not really a fan of Closed-loop cooling. Its either Air cooling or Custom LCS for me! I also slapped an ancient Evercool Armor on the 5.25bays. It took me 3 hours to figure out how to slap it inside because it won't fit completely when I tried it, as well as the cabling between the PSU and the HDD bay.

Not sure why it is not correctly rotated when uploaded. I am seeing the normal rotation when I open it at Photoshop. Anyways, yep the plastic from the Evercool Armor does not match with the rest of the front bezel frown.gif


Here is the messy cabling. It really wont fit if I don't do something with the 24pin motherboard connector. HDD temps dropped around ~8C though with the help of the 80mm fan infront of the HDD bay. Surprisingly, the stock fan is silent enough for me not to replace it with another one! I really cant hear it even with the front cover opened.


Back cabling. Its the best that I can do with non-sleeved cables.


That rubber thingy there is from the TJ08 for long graphics cards, I put it there since I removed the reactor cover from the 7970 Lightning BE so that the reactor PCB wont hit the heatsink. Also it is my attempt to cover the USB3 cables using the Bitfenix Extension cables, but it failed.


The reactor PCB sitting on the rubber pad.


Last pic, sorry for too many pics!

I had wondered about the Evercool Armor. Nice to see it can be used. What did you have to do to make it fit? Also, creative cable routing and use of the rubber pad.

its just simple really, maybe im really tired last night when im trying to install the evercool armor.

basically, it wont fit if i just put it into the 5.25 bay and screw the sides. because the side screw holes of the evercool armor wont match with the TJ08-E case. so what i did is to remove the TJ08-E front bezel while also removing the front panel of the evercool armor, insert it into the dual 5.25" drive bays, put the TJ08-E bezel back, then put the front panel of the evercool armor.

Before doing the above though, make sure that the HDDs and your SSDs (im using 2 HDD and 1 SSD in the evercool armor) are already screwed into the evercool armor, and also the cables are ready as well. theres a huge space below my SSD so i stucked most of the clutter there--- 3 sata cables, and the long power sata cable from the X650.

also note that the evercool armor doesnt have padding for anti vibrations for HDDs, although i dont hear the hdd cage vibrating. the only thing im hearing inside my case are the scythe fans, they produce more (motor?) noise than the AP181.

I wanted to wait until I got my new Kaveri system setup, but with the FM2+ processors due next year I figured I would post what I have currently. biggrin.gif





I just got back my fourth PSU back from OCZ and this one appears to be in better working condition than the last... but I have my doubts. I selected it because the bulk of the cables are modular and it also has a Red LED fan that glows out of the top the case for a really nice effect. Since the cables are much longer than needed, I zip tied them (in red :-)) up over my 3 drives.





I should mention that I have managed to keep my case relatively neat by housing my two SSDs and single HDD in one 3.5 bay drive - thanks to Silverstone's converter, of course.





As mentioned before; I am in the process of giving away my current i5 3570k and moving towards Kaveri. As such I did not bother cleaning up all the wires because I have no idea where the front I/O headers will be located. For now, this will have to do.





Almost forgot! Most MATX boards I have seen coming for the FM2+ platform do not seem to have any sort of proprietary Clear CMOS button on the rear I/O. Since opening my case and tinkering with jumpers is such a huge pain (due in part with the location of my case) I also took it upon myself to utilize the rear cutout of the TJ08-E and use Silverstone's own Clear CMOS solution. All I know is; it is red. It is shiny. I like it!





When put together it currently looks like this:





I sure do hope the next board I pick up has Red SATA cables. If not I will have to pick up a handful as they, and my ram, stick out like a sore thumb. I would also like to replace the front intake fan as it is a tad loud for my tastes. If anything, I would like to replace it with this. My H60 would go swell with one of these, I think, but I will wait until they make a static pressure variant before I buy a 120mm fan.

Hey!

Finally got round to registering on the forum as I wanted to give back after reading through all the quality information in this thread (thanks!) and share with you my PS07 build (that's still in progress).

I choose the PS07 over the TJ08-e because of the front door that (as discussed in SPCR review) aids in reducing noise emanating from the front of the case. Ideally I'd have liked an mATX case that had a full height door with a top venting PSU to enable the use of a fanless model, while blocking some of the noise from the hot-swap bay but I couldn't find one. Plus I wanted to stay loyal to Silverstone after having enjoyed many years of service from my much loved old school TJ06 (you can see it peering over the new build in my last posted image :-) ).

The bits I have already for my build are as follows:
  1. Silverstone PS07B
  2. Icybox MB153SP-B "FatCage" 3 in 2 SATA Internal Backplane Module (This cost more than the case! :-/ )
  3. 520W Seasonic Platinum SS-520FL2 Fanless Modular PSU
  4. AcoustiPack ULTIMATE Soundproofing
  5. 3x Sharkoon 120mm 1000 Fans
  6. 1x Sharkoon 80mm 1000 Fan (To replace the stock IcyBox fan which is very noisy!)
  7. Zotac GTX 760 (with Stock Blower, tested idle noise and is near silent at ~1000rpm)
  8. Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E SE (with 2x TY-143 thus the first PCIe slot can be used!)
  9. Crucial Ballistix Sport Memory Kit 32GB (4x8GB) 1.35V 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 BLS4C8G3D1609ES2LX0BEU (Very Low Profile)

My build will eventually be comprised of the following (when I have the cash next month!):
  1. Intel Core i7 4770K
  2. Asus MAXIMUS VI GENE
  3. 2 x 256GB Samsung 840 Pro (in Raid 0)
  4. 3 x 3TB Seagate ST3000DM001 Barracuda 7200.14 in (Raid 5)

I'm trying to make as near silent PC at idle as possible with this build (care less about load noise as I use a headset) and have been working on sound proofing the case. Additionally, I've replaced the stock fans, installed the hotswap bay and the PSU. Here's some smartphone pictures (sorry about the quality!):






These images don't show the sound proofing I've also added to the top panel. I'll eventually get round to adding sound proofing around the 120mm fans but it's a seriously fiddly job!

One question has anyone attempted to use the gap next to the PSU to store 2.5inch drives? I was thinking of fabricating a driver cage for there, rather than what others have done previously by attaching SSDs to the back of the motherboard tray. I could still do this but the sound proofing might make it a very tight fit.

I'll post again when I've completed the build. Comments / suggestions welcome and thanks again to everyone who's posted useful tips and their builds on this thread! smile.gif

Thats probably the most common place for SSDs in the case.

Apologies, I wasn't very clear (edited my original post). I don't plan to attach the SSDs to the motherboard tray as others have done in this thread but above in the gap next to the PSU for "cable management":



Is there a reason others haven't used this area?

I have some concerns that if I do use this area and attach the SSDs vertically upright in landscape using just two screws they might be a source of vibration, hence the idea of fabricating a simple bracket to brace them together.

Another question I have concerns overclocking, what are people achieving in this small case? I'm hoping for 4.8Ghz+ after delidding. Should be achievable if I luck out and given the TDP of the 4770K vs SB-E CPUs that the heatsink was designed for? I'm getting 1.1GHz GPU (vs 993Mhz stock) and 6.8GHz GDDR5 (vs 6GHz stock) out of the GTX 760. I hope for 2Ghz+ out of the DDR3 too again with any luck.

Hey guys,

What fan direction config do people use with this case when mounting both a front and rear radiator?

I have some concerns that if I do use this area and attach the SSDs vertically upright in landscape using just two screws they might be a source of vibration, hence the idea of fabricating a simple bracket to brace them together.

I'm not sure about the area, but you can "stick" an SSD pretty much anywhere you can fit it and can get power and the SATA cables to it. There are no moving parts, so there should be no vibration from the SSD itself.

If you want to put it there, just use some zip ties and attach it through the steel "mesh" area just above and screws below or just use zip ties only. I have used double-sided carpet tape to place SSD's in my cases in the past but not vertically as I would use double-sided tape and zip ties.
