I did not make my choice yet because people say the 180mm fan is loud and I am still not sure if the case if hard to build in. Also that does seems like a problem but if the customer service is good I think I could live with it. Another thing is that I would have to get 5.25in to 3.5in bay adapter to make it look nice and the 350D it seems that the cabling will be really easy but I can not say the same about the TJ08-E,I would have to talk to the people in the owners club again unless anyone from there see this and enlighten me.

I realize this is your perception, and there were some issues with the H80i early on, but most of our cases have been fairly bulletproof. We do have occasional issues here and there but the 350D is a very solid choice.

Don't get me wrong, I love Corsair products but sometimes (like all products) things can go wrong and it has unfortunately happened to me a few times but it still hasn't put me off.

I saw that thread Friday night and sent it to our customer service team. They'll respond to him when they get in this week.

Well I read a bit of that thread and if something goes wrong and I need to rma any of the products I would not have a pc for a bit of the school year frown.gif but you know I love corsair and I will risk it and hope they get through their problems soon but if it gets real bad on the thread I would have to go with the TJ08-E and think about the psu and the water water cooler I am using frown.gif

I personally have a TJ08-E and LOVE the case. As far as reported noise on the front 180 fan, disregard it. I keep mine on low and use an AIO cooler in it with zero temp issues. I can't imagine needing to run it on anything but the lower setting unless you manage to put out some pretty heavy heat loads internally from...your...hdd? Everything else will have an exhaust directly out of the case so you don't really get a load of heat buildup, and the front fan keeps plenty of air coming in even on the lower setting to maintain positive pressure in my setup. I removed the drive cage and stuffed a 6950, ssd, mech drive, br drive, h80, and a tv tuner in mine and it isn't cramped by any means.

Put the SSD on the backside of the mobo tray, mech drive in the opening at the bottom of the case and make sure to lay out all of the wiring before you stick the mobo tray in and you won't have any issues with it. I keep mine on the floor, and the can't hear anything except my gpu fan spin up when it loads into a game, which quickly drops back to low settings and is near silent. My ceiling fan makes more noise than the computer does.

I don't any reference to the 350D as far as building with it goes, but I can speak very highly of the TJ08-E. Unless I was going to go 3+ gpu or a big liquid cooled build, I would use this case over and over. Size is perfect to still be portable, but it has enough room to not be limited on most choices. But like someone posted before, you will have to change CPU coolers to either an H80 or a nice air cooler since there is no spot for the bigger AIOs in this case. I use just that and haven't seen any heat issues with a 2600k in my build. Hope this helps!

Alright thanks for enlightening me I know what to change if I want to use that case but right now my sig is for the 350D. The things I will change is to the h80i like said and only 2 sp120's quite editions. As for the fan thanks and I want it to look good not empty so I think having the TJ08-E will make it look that much better since it is smaller. I guess I will ask my mom and dad what case do they think looks better tongue.gif

P.S I think I would go for the TJ08-E anyway seems like I need to change my sig a bit thumb.gif

I'm sure either is a fine choice, but also the filters on the TJ08-E are easy to clean and I have had my build for over a year now and have dusted the inside once, just because I felt I needed to out of pure principle. I keep the filters cleaned once a month or so and there is almost zero dust build-up inside the case to deal with. I looked at the 350D earlier just to have some comparison to see, it looks like a nice case, but I still prefer the looks of the TJ08, psu is hidden out of sight and it looks "clean" when its all said and done. That fits with my style though, if you want a bit of flash and want a window and some lighting or something to set off the inside, the 350D is still a good choice, just not my personal preference thumb.gif

Oh the lack of dusk is nice and the 350D has that also. And in my opinion I am not the guy who wants the flashy stuff, I like sleek and elegant and even if I get the 350D i'm not sure about the window. Oh what the hay i'm going for the TJ08-E and I get to be in that cool club I have been talking to for a while thumb.gif
