New Build: TJ08-E or smaller

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Making the transition from air to water and wondering if the TJ08-E is the smallest case that I can use without worrying about my temps. Im intending a single loop for an OCed 680 and i5. The silver stone can supposedly hold a 200 mm rad in the front and 120 in the back. Ideas or suggestions on this or another case is welcome. SFF is very intriguing and worth the money as long as I'm not making sacrifices. I am fine with some modding and have access to a machine shop with the help of someone much wiser than myself. I was also very impressed with miahallen's max11lv3 and would love to see any other similar build logs. As for saving space on the inside, I have no need for a HDD or optical drive. Just one ssd is all.

Yeah I have seen some WC TJ08 E owners. So You find more infoms from the thread Silverstone TJ08-E Owners Club about WC.

Good luck.. wink.gif

If you can stomach the extra 4 inches in depth, a Lian Li A05nb would give you way more flexibility. Height and width wise, it's almost identical to the TJ08.

500

You could stick with a full sized ATX motherboard if you wanted, and there's plenty of space for full sized graphics cards.

A 3x120 radiator will fit in the top with some modding, and a 2x120 radiator will fit in the bottom also with some modding.

Thanks, but I'm looking for smaller than the TJ08-E, not bigger.

I am almost done reading the owner's thread and I have seen a few so I know it's doable. Just curious if I could go any smaller. Again I don't need any drive space except for WC parts possibly. Just one SSD likely on the back of the mobo tray.

The Lian Li PC-V354 is slightly shorter than a TJ08, but a little deeper. You could stick a 2x120 radiator in the front and a 1x120 radiator in the top or back.

Something truly smaller than the TJ08 would be the Lian Li PC-Q08. It's an ITX case. If you don't use any optical drives, you could probably cram a single 2x120 radiator in the top, or if you still want an optical drive, I'm sure a 180 radiator would fit with some modding.

If you remove the front drive cages, a 1x140 radiator will fit in the front.

Here's a build a guy did. It's not the cleanest, but it gives you an idea of the space inside the case.
