I wanted to post a build using this case to get some feedback on motherboards. Since i don't plant to overclock I'm not sure if i should be posting here? I would appreciate help tho and hope to contribute to this owner's group!
So here goes...
OS: 64bit Windows 7 pro
Case: TJ08e
CPU: Core i5 2400
CPU Cooler:
Needs to allow for use of multiple 3.5" hard drives in the cage. I have two antec 120mm fans from previous build. Potential to use stock cooler until replacement of 3.5" drives. I will be using the hard drive cage regardless so the cooler needs to clear it.
Motherboard: TBD
Needs raid setup.
No plans to overclock gpu, cpu or ram. Never have overclocked. H67?
6x sata hookups
USB 3.0
Ram: 8gb and needs to allow use of the hard drive cage.
Graphics Card - Current: XFX PVT43GNDF3 GeForce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16
Graphics Card - Future: 6770 or similar single slot mid range card.
Hard drives - current:
(all are 3.5")
2x 3.5" 10k rpm raptors 36gb in raid 0 for os and programs
1x 3.5" 7.2k rpm 250gb for data storage
Hard drives - future:
(replace all 3.5" with 2.5")
1x 2.5" SSD 60gb or more (to replace raptors) for os and programs
2x 2.5" 7.2k rpm 1tb (to replace 250gb and put in raid 1) OR 3-5x 2.5" 7.2k rpm 500gb or 1tb (to replace 250gb and put in raid 5) (or a NAS?), for data storage
OD: DVD burner (would like to replace with a blue ray at some point)
I plan to get a cabinet for the unused 5.25" bay to store a small wireless usb card and eventually a sdhc reader usb stick. I like that i can move these around easily from machine to machine.
I also would like to reduce vibrations from the hd's and fans by getting the rubber 'screws'. I am also thinking of applying acoustic matting to reduce sound.
Mahalo!

you got alot of work for me this time:
Cooler:: One of those all in one water cooled units would work fine for non OC (or even light OC). Are you looking for silent computing? Because there are soo many options with coolers.
The max height of coolers is 165mm, you will want one that does not have a spilt heatsink, and one that can be used as a pull fan or a push fan. Look at what others have done on here and decide what route you should go, several have done that.

The max memory dimm height for full hdd compliment is 54mm, any larger you will hit the drives.

The most sata 3 ports I have seen on a mATX is 4, which is by gigabyte. Link so you will be waiting until Ivy is released before you see are jump on sata 3 ports...killing us.

The acoustic matting should drop a couple dB off, for the raptors those rubber ones might make a difference, but for 72k I dont think it will make a big difference IMHO.

You can try switching the fan to a different 3 pin connector (if wired though the motherboard) and see if that makes a difference. Otherwise you can request a replacement from silverstone, but you will have to take the case apart to get the new one in, but you can rotate the new one and make it look better.

USB 3.0 internal header + mATX board +1155 socket (or any other socket for that matter) = few choices, maybe only the Asus Gene-Z or Gigabyte GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3.

The hard drive cage is already lined with a dense foam that helps keep the noise to a minimum - maybe try it stock first before searching for special screws.

Look at the fan while its spinning. Is it twitching when you hear the click?

No, the fan is spinning constantly. The clicking noise naturally becomes louder as I increase the fan speed.

I finally have some time to dissemble it, let's see if I can find anything.

I took out the fan and powered it up. Upon closer inspection, the clicking noise is definitely from the fan and not my other components thankfully. The blades are spinning evenly and smoothly, not wriggling as I thought it would be. With the fan out, the noise sounds as if something may be loose somewhere. I had high hopes for this case, but this fan is irritating me. I'll contact Silverstone and hopefully get a replacement from them.

If there are other suggestions I'm all ears.

Hi all,

I just had my TJ08E arrive, I also ordered a 1 Kingston SV200 128GB SSD to go with it - now in trying to install the thing, can someone tell me if the SSD is really supposed to be attached straight onto the metal casing? Looks like recipe for disaster to me?

for the first time seems like modular psu will not work with this reservoir/pump combo .... it be a super tight fit though...

i can see 90 degree angle connectors will able to allow modular psu.

There would be plenty of space had I used 45's, 90's would reduce flow too much.
