I have seen several members have it rotated 90º, but the screws did not match the plate layout, so I guess I will have to use some velcro , am I right?

Which is the best way to install the HDD cage rotated 90º?

Thanks in advance.

You will have to rotate the base (the thing that cage attaches to), you can detatch it using 4 screwes from the bottom of the case, you can rotate it so everything faces the directions, and redrill the holes from the bottom to line up in the new orientation.

edit: making clear.

Wow, thanks a lot squishysquishy!

I thought I would have to make additional holes or something (which I do not want to). I will try it tomorrow biggrin.gif

You will have to make additional holes...on the bottom of the case...after you take the screws out of the base of the cage and rotated it.

The cage is not exactly symmetric, one side is longer than the other, you might be able to reuse one of the holes, but not all.

Oh thanks, I will see what I could do.

This is what I am trying to do:

Maybe I may use some velcro if I need to drill.

was fun in this club, tj08-e is a great case. however, the front fan is too loud for me so i'll be jumping ship to a lian-li pca05nb. one last pic before the tear down!

You do know this will completely make useless the front fan on the case right? This is blocking over 75% of the air flow.

I've used Velcro to mount my Hdd cage on it's end, No vibration issues thumb.gif

I also removed the single hdd bracket to allow a little more air to move past the hdds

The picture above is how I tried to gain some more airflow around the hdd cage thumb.gif

Yeah, maybe I will leave the CPU heatsink (HR-02) as passive, and then I can accomodate the HDD cage in its right direction.

I hope it could handle the TDP of the i7-4820K (no OC) correctly. In any case I could undervolt it if neeeded.

My build is finally complete.

I actually built this thing twice. The first time around I tried using the HDD cage since I was thinking of adding more drives in the future, but that proved to be a no-go since all the SATA cables and PSU cables will be jutting out on the right side, and that really spoils the looks. I removed everything and proceeded to use the hybrid drive cage instead, with the SSD screwed to the bottom of the case and the mech HDD fitted to the cage. The good thing about this is that all the cables are tucked on the left-hand side and to the back of the case, so they are significantly less visible. smile.gif

My next trouble was the cables that came with my Silverstone Strider Plus. Some of the cables (specifically the 24 pin) were so stiff that it made cable management a nightmare. It was near impossible to get a clean look due to the lack of slack (no pun intended) on the cables. The 8pin ATX was also too short to route it behind the mobo tray.
I then proceeded to order some white custom sleeved cables as an extension and that proved to be working well. Pictar time:





NEXT STEPS:
1. Finding a way to hide the HDD cables that are clearly visible on the left-hand side of the case.
2. Getting a window mode. smile.gif

Hi all
Started playing with my new TJ08-E and doing some slight mods to fit a few rads. Replaced the fan with a 182

Can anyone tell me if an EVGA GTX Classified will fit with a front mounted 180mm rad.
