Silverstone TJ11. Is it worth it for air cooling?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey guys. I was on the verge of getting myself a Cosmos II but it will not fit under my desk.

 

Now I am in the market for the Silverstone TJ11.

 

It seems like a very different design than regular cases. Are there any downside of it?

 

How good is this case for air cooling?

 

Also would my Corsair h100 fit somewhere in the case?

 

Thanks guys/.

Seems a bit of a waste. Not sure how it's air cooling performance is though, generally larger cases (Cosmos II, 800D, TJ07 etc) are made with watercooling in mind.

You'd have a lot of wasted space, and money, if you just went with air cooling. Why not just get a full loop? biggrin.gif

The problem with the full loop is that my warranty here in Turkey would be void for the GPU.

 

This is my main concern.

 

Otherwise I would go for a water cooling loop although I am a noob at it.

 

Here in Turkey TJ11 is $700

Cosmos II is $500

800D is $400

 

I used to own the 800D but it was bad for aircooling and sold it and got a 500r to get by. But the 500r is small for my taste and the cable management is not as good as a Full Tower case.

 

I really need a full tower case and most of the FUll Tower cases available here in Turkey are terrible.

 

I don't want to purchase a Thermaltake Level 10GT, or a Aerocool Xpredator or stuff like that. They are all cheap plastic no matter how many cool options they have.

 

My safest bet is the Haf X, but I am not a fan of the design.

 

However I just took a look into TJ11 a bit more and noticed that there really isnt a place to put my Corsair H100 radiator.
