Why? The SSD itself is just a circuit board in a metal case.

SSD's can be mounted just about anywhere! biggrin.gif If you look around the various build logs on OCN you'll see them mounted behind m/b trays, next to PSU's, in the 5.25" bay and all over the place! thumb.gif

BTW welcome to OCN!

Wanted to report back on the Phobya G-18 Silent 180mm fan. Arrived today and just got finished installing a little while ago.

Replacing the 180mm fan requires that you take off both sides, the top cover, front cover, HDD cage and then remove the 4 screws holding the fan and the 2 screws holding the switch. The Phobya is 25mm wide so it adds a little extra room between the fan and the HDD cage.

When they say silent they mean it or damn close. You can hear it if you put your head by the case, but I have the case on a rack down below so about 3' from the bottom of the case to where my head is and it really is just a gentle hum now.

I had an issue getting the AP181 to start up on low with my Gigabyte mobo SYS_FAN header, but the Phobya starts right up and is near silent as it is only spinning around 400-450 rpm. Top level is 700 rpm. Huge improvement over the AP181. Temp's running Prime 95 just got a little over 50º C, so cooling just fine with the Phobya and Scythe PWM on the CPU cooler.

Really, really impressed with this fan and changes the acoustics of the case immensely.

The number of screws (and the number of very small screws) that are required to swap out the fan is ridiculous though. Not sure why they did not use tabs like other cases to pop on the front cover as the little screws are very easy to strip so take your time removing them.

Thanks for that update. I just put a fan controller in my case hoping that the AP181 would be OK on very low fan speed, but there is an unpleasant shuffling/whirring/something noise. I may get the same fan as you.

Hello, I joined this board for feedback on a TJ08-E build in Australia. I'll be sure to post pics when I'm done making it this week!

This build for a combination of reliability, occasional BF3/SC2 gaming, silence and cost (although I have already chosen to pay for premium mobo, PSU for reliability). No overclocking. Any comments on the uncertain or other components would be appreciated.

The two components I'm uncertain about are the cooler and the graphics card. I opted for the ASUS 1GB 6870 for reliability and quiet idle, but I'm not sure if it will fit as its 279 mm x 127 mm. I have read max is 336 mm...

The Contac 29 cooler is fairly large, and I've listed it at this stage as I currently have one spare with a nexus fan. It's a pretty good cooler on standard boards. The dimensions are 120 x 50 x 159 mm and it weighs 558gs. I read that the max cooler height for the board is 165mm. I can't really visualise if the width of this cooler will be problem. Will this cooler fit? Is using it crazy or awesome?
If it's crazy what would you recommend?

Full specs
Video card: ASUS 1GB 6870
Motherboard: ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z
Cooler: Contac 29 ?!?!
CPU Intel Core i5 2500
SSD: Crucial M4 SSD 128GB
PSU Seasonic X-560 80Plus Gold 560W
ODD: Samsung SH-222AB SATA DVDRW
RAM Corsair Vengeance CML8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 low profile
Case: Silverstone TJ08-E Black M-ATX/ITX
HDDs 2x old SATA 640gbs, RAID 1

That graphics card will easily fit. I did just measure my case and 13.25"/336mm is indeed about the the max.

This is awesome to know.
Guess I'll be buying a fan soon!

I want in the club too!
Here is my entry. (Notice the zip ties holding the middle fan on the HSF. The Noctua damnear touches the bottom and I couldn't get the fan to clip back on.
