That's strange. Is your power supply installed with the fan down or on top?

Who are you asking that question of? If me, I run with my PSU facing down in the TJ08/PS07's

Who am I? I'm someone that's trying to help. Something must be wrong with this member's airflow if his case is accumulating dust so quickly. However the photo shows a typical installation.

I have my power supply installed with the fan facing upwards so that it draws air in through the top filter, like many other members. This isolates the power supply's airflow from the rest of the case which keeps all of the positive air pressure from the front fan(s) for the resr of the case components. The power supply can cool passively longer before its fan needs to start spinning and the air it draws in hasn't been heated by the other components so the fan can cool at lower RPMs.

This is the opposite of the case manual's instructions. However, many thousands of posts ago Silverstone's engineers told us that the manual's recommendation is wrong and that a new revision would be issued with modified instructions. I keep looking, but that has never happened.

I'm glad to hear that having your power supply installed facing downwards works well for you. Maybe that will help this new member. Isn't that why we're all here?

I edited my post to make it more understandable. Since you didn't quote the question you were answering, it was hard to tell WHO you were asking that question of. And since my post was immediately before that question, I figured I would answer.

Also, I tried my psu in both directions, and found that in every system I've built in the TJ08/PS07, it's given me better temps for every part in the case, especially my GPU's in SLI, since it's helping direct some of the colder air up towards the top of the case.

Here's my TJ08E. Excellent little case.




290 installed, next on the upgrade list custom loop.

That's a good suggestion for those with SLI or CrossFire setups. If I'm remembering correctly, the top graphics card usually runs hot. Anything that directs more airflow to that area should help. Way back, someone added a 92 mm fan to the top of the 3.5 inch drive holder to direct more airflow to the top graphics card. Initially I did something similar, except I velcro'd my fan to the underside of a hard drive htat I had in in the bottom 5.25 inch drive bay.

I wonder if those with the top 5.25 inch bay empty could consider adding a fan at the top of the case that blows down into the case? Would this help?

Nice setup. Red and black theme still looks good. Details? It looks like you have a 200mm radiator attached by means of an adapter to the front 180 mm fan. Is that 4x4GB?

Thanks.

2500K @ 4,5 w/ H100
IV Gene-Z
290 DC II
4x4GB
AX 850

Had the H100 from my previous build and rather than buying a new cooler for this case I made adapters that allowed attaching the rad to the front fan. There's few mm clearance to the floor and the top just slightly enters the second 5.25 bay. Despite of that I managed to fit 2 3.5" hdds in there just fine.

Ah, now I see it. Should have guessed from the big Corsair logo on the CPU block/pump module, eh? Nice work. That's real modding.
