New Build: TJ08-E or smaller

post #1 of 3
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.

i like the case tjo8 alot, but i think it makes a better aircooling case. dont get me wrong, it can be done. but like you said....taking out the parts will add alot more space

/agree. the only reason to go liquid on a TJ08-E would be if you are going for SLi/Xfire. on a single card configuration with just a i5, you won't be producing enough heat to require liquid. just get a nice triple wide card like an asus directCU2 for the gpu and a silver arrow or NH-D14 for the cpu and you can have a nice and comfortable OC headroom. for your thermal load, liquid is more of a vanity choice then a thermal requirement.

in fact, if you want to go smaller, you can look into a SG08 build. the new asrock Z77 board with axp-140 cooler and any dual slot 680gtx should do the trick. wont have as much OC headroom as the TJ08-E, but it's also quite abit smaller then the TJ08-E
