So blown away by the length of this thread, the picture gallery could almost do with some coding to get to the images/list the thumbs a bit better. What a great source of info it is though.
Thank you all... thumb.gif

I decided that even though I won't be building a new computer until after the Zen CPU's come out, and I see if the are some decent mATX options for it or if I need to go with an Intel build for the the mATX PC I want, I would get the case just in case it might be hard to find a year from now, especially because I wanted the windowed version. Sure, I could just get a different mATX case, but looking at everything available currently, I don't think anything compares to the TJ08 in appearance or compactness without being difficult to work in.

So, here it is in the box, which is how it will be for another year or so unfortunately, but at least that might give me an excuse to do a full system upgrade by the time I have my answer on the Zen.

I just built my TJ08-E today. I actually had a system almost 5 years ago in a Silverstone GD04B (horizontal, component-style HTPC). The fans were starting to annoy me, as was having it on the desk. But I still have all the power I need with a 2600k processor, 32GB RAM, and a couple SSDs. So I opted to just upgrade the case.

First off, I was very worried about noise. Some people complained about the 180mm fan. I did research and was prepared to buy two more to compare. Let me tell you though, my system is SILENT.

It took a bit of experimenting, but here's what I discovered:

My motherboard (ASROCK), has a 3-pin fan header next to the 4-pin header. It seems that the 3-pin one there is not controllable, so I plugged the 180mm fan into another fan header on the MB.

I installed a Noctua NF-S12A PWM as a case fan, connected to the 4-pin PWM header.

I used the Macho Rev. B heatsink (WITHOUT FAN).

I tried using fan programs with the front fan on the "low" switch setting, but found it would go lower with it on "high". I also tried using Noctua's fan "silencer" (resistor) cable, with the same results.

My setup in BIOS:

Noctua "CPU fan" (again, there is no CPU fan; it's on the case as exhaust): the CPU target temp to be 50 degrees. The fan is set to run at speed "3" (of 10), and throttles up as the CPU gets hotter. I chose "3" because the Noctua is silent even at that speed, and having it run a bit faster allows the front fan to run slower, for longer.

180mm front fan: the CPU target temp set to 55 degrees. This is so the Noctua speeds up first. This front fan is set to speed "1" (of 10). I want it to be as quiet as possible.


For some reason, my BIOS reports temps about 10 degrees hotter than Open Hardware Monitor. I don't know, or really care, which is right.

Hardware Monitor is showing my CPU temps to be 31 (low), and hovering around 34 as I type this (watching a movie, a few dozen browser tabs open in Firefox and Chrome, not much else). This is just an hour or so after build, so I'm not sure if thermal paste is done "settling". Ambient is low 20s.

I'm very happy with my two-fan, no-CPU-fan setup. No complaints and I won't be upgrading the front fan.

the AP181 is loud compared to your typical 120mm / 140mm fan. and for people who are used to the decibel levels of those "smaller" fans it's understandable. personally i find AP181 too loud, but i'm picky tongue.gif

however, AP181 is rated at 130CFM @ 1200RPM . if you take either a 120mm or 140mm fan that are rated at 130CFM, it would have to spin at much higher speed then 1200RPM so if you figure in the CFM in your comparison, the AP181 is quieter then any 120mm or 140mm fan.

as far as fan speed, i normally run my AP181's at around 500RPM even though the fan is capable of going down to 400RPM. IMO the noise level at 500RPM is acceptable and at 400RPM it's producing such low static pressure that it's barely pulling any air through the air filter in the front. the noise level scales up quite nicely when compared to the GPU with my setting so when i'm gaming, the GPU is still producing just alittle more noise then the AP181.

i won't say AP181 is "silent" cuz you gotta be deaf if you think it's quiet at 1200RPM biggrin.gif but when compared to the alternatives, I think it's a better compromise then even the PS07 which can technically be quieter if you invest in some good quality fans.

I thought I'd give a new pic of my build. The last one I posted had a C2D, so this was long overdue.
