Silverstone TJ08-E Owners Club. - Page 598

post #5971 of 7177
I'm planning to build a system in this case, but there's this one issue I'm concerned about.

Specs of the system I'm about to build:

Mobo: Asus A88XM-plus
CPU: AMD A8-6600K
Cooler: Thermalright HR-02 Macho rev. A
RAM: 2x4 GB Team Group Vulcan Series Red 2400 MHz, CL11
PSU: Super Flower Golden Green Pro 450W
Rear fan: Scythe GT 800 rpm
Case: Temjin TJ08B-E
DVD-drive

Storage:
1x PNY XLR8 120 GB SSD
1x WD Caviar Blue 1TB HDD

Is there any easy way to install those drives in the case without using the HDD-rack? After reading this thread for a while I noticed that the macho's fan may interfere with the HDD's cables if I install the HDD in the HDD-rack.

E: If there's no way to fit those, will swapping the CPU-Cooler to Thermalright True Spirit 120 or 90 do the trick?

I have that heatsink. The hard drives will fit, but you will need L-shaped sata cables, and "flat" sata power connectors.

It's pretty much the only heatsink of that size that WILL fit HDDs.

If I can get off my ass, I'll take a picture of my PC one of these days. BUT... there's a picture of one in the case manual too.

Another idea would be to get an SSD that is 7.0 mm tall, unlike the 9.5 mm thick PNY SSD. Originally, I had my 7mm Samsung in the bottom mounting position, but could not get the SATA connectors to attach because they were flush with the bottom of the case. My solution was to raise the SSD by a millimeter or so with washers so that I could get the SATA cables connected. This will not work with a 9.5 mm SSD because the drive completely fills the space provided. You need a thin SSD.

Alternative idea: mount the SSD upside down with thin mounting tape so that the SATA data and power connectors are not flush against the bottom of the case. I wouldn't use too much tape so that it will be possible to remove the SSD in the future. Good luck.

By flat sata power connectors do you mean the connectors in the middle of the sata power cable, not in the end? Or do I have to buy some special adapter?

E: To Qrash, do you think Seagate 600 would be a good alternative to the PNY?

This image is kind of decent for what I was talking about. The connector on the left... the cables kind of stick out too far. But the one on the right they are nearer to the hdd.

Hi Haades. I have no first hand experience with the Seagate 600. Sorry. Here is a link to the review at Anandtech which might help you to decide:

http://www.anandtech.com/show/6935/seagate-600-ssd-review

Overall, the reviewer liked the Seagate 600, but he did have a couple concerns (idle power consumption and lack of hardware encryption support). Read the review and any others that you can find on reputable sites, is all that I can suggest. Let us know what you decide.

If I go for the PS07B instead of the Temjin, which comes with 5.25 to HDD adapter, should I be able to fit the drives? How can it be that the bottom mount designed for SSD cannot fit a SSD in a case as pricey as this.

E: I found this

4310_23_silverstone_temjin_sst_tj08_evolution_m_atx_tower_chassis_review.jpg

From a review. According to the picture the SSD-drive isn't going to be in flush with the floor because there are those stands for it there. Did you mean it would be hard to install if I tried to pack two drives in that bottom cage or something, SSD AND HDD?

You're right they both should fit. I originally had my SSD and 3.5 inch hard drive together in the bottom drive cage. However, I had to raise my SSD with washers in order to connect my SATA data and power connectors. Maybe it's just my connectors. Yours might be better, but if not, you'll need to try one of the suggestions here such as an L-shaped data connector and a thin power connector. Or raise the SSD like I did. Good luck.

Just a last question. If I end up using the upper HDD-cage, can I install the fan to the heatsink normally? I mean, blowing air through the heatsink towards the back of the case, using the right cables. Not having to install the fan to the opposite side?

Yeah, you can.
