Silverstone TJ08-E Owners Club. - Page 519

post #5181 of 7172
Guys, I'm trying to decide between reference GTX 780 (like EVGA SuperClocked) and ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II upgrade for my PC.

What would work better in TJ-08E ? I know about positive pressure and it've worked well with my ASUS GTX 670 so far.

Thermals and noise are paramount for me. Less performance.

Also not going for SLI anytime soon.

Get the one with the best cooler...the asus one. While it will dump hot air into the case, it will at least properly cool the gpu. I have had a few different video cards in my tj08e (asus gtx570, 670ftw, asus 670, asus 660, evga 650ti current asus 770) and the only one that was an exhaust card was my evga gtx670 ftw and I hated that I needed the fan on max to keep the gpu from the 70c throttle limit. At least with the asus 780 if fan speeds need to be higher it wont be as loud as a ref. cooler.

I honestly cant see running a high end gpu in sli in this case without water blocks either unless you do not overclock. I tried a 670sli and temps were just out of control while just benching, had to return the second card. The top card has the psu restricting air circulation and the bottom card is obviously below the top gpu.

Have fun with the 780...Im tempted with the price drops

Not sure which classy your talking about but I have my 180mm in push/pull (stock 180mm fan) and the asus 770 BARELY fits. To be safe I think you would have 11.75" if you only have one fan on the rad.

I can fits a Gtx 780 (reference cooler) with a phobya xxtreme 200mm rad sitting in front.. still got 1inch clearance between rad and 780. And basically evga classified Gtx 780 has the same length (270-280mm) with the reference Gtx 780. So I don't see any problem with that smile.gif

Thanks xiong91 and 66racer for the info. I forgot to mention it's a EVGA GTX780 Classified. I ended up contacting EVGA and yes it will just fit with 1 X 182 fan and rad.

Cheers

Thanks for reply. Made my choice easier. I have a question about the PSU, though. Do you put yours fan up or down? Do you let it suck the hot air from the GPU ?
I have a Seasonic X-650 and I've never seen it turning on the fan yet... maybe if you put it fan down, it would turn it on because of the temperature threshold?
I'm having it fan up and it's been working completely passive so far... all the heat just goes up through the case vent. And the GPU's hot air is pushed out by a positive pressure.

I have mine fan up, have wondered what fan down would be like but havent done it since my wires are routed nicely dont feel like doing it again lol

My ax850 fan doesnt turn on much but I figure even if its not on, fan down still creates a patch for hot air to escape. If I were to do it again I would try fan down.

I have tried a couple of PSUs and found that if the fan is coming on they work better down from a noise level point of view.

Im so very tempted to go back to the TJ08e for my next project...decisions decisions thinking.gif
post #5190 of 7172
Hi everyone,
I'm building my first computer (gaming pc) and I've chosen the tj08-e as my case. I've pasted the parts list I'm planning to use (and a link to the list on pcpartpicker) below. I read a lot of professional and user reviews for the parts and checked the specs against the case dimensions, but like I said it's my first time doing this so if anyone has any advice or constructive criticism I'd like to hear it before I order the parts. Any help is appreciated!
Thanks,
Greenegiant
