I got the TJ08-E as soon as it came out. I might be looking to replace mines with a 350D so I could use a 240mm rad. Several issues I have with my current TJ08-E

Cons

1. The front fan is noise is pretty loud even on low. Been meaning to replace it with a Phoyba fan but never had the time.
2. The case scratches really easy. Cheap/thin steel body
3. Hard to slide the side panels back in. Sometimes I have to take a screwdriver and push up the tabs on the side panels so they can lock in the case
5. H80 cooler barely fit in a push/pull config due to the height of the block touching the fan

Pros

1. Weight/Size
2. Easy accessible filters. I clean mines once a month. Barely any dust gets inside the system
3. Removable motherboard tray

I purchased the TJ08-E case for my mom and I don't think "it's all that" other than the size in which is why I got it in the first place.

Well I just unconvinced myself, not because of you guys though I know the people over at the TJ08-E club are really happy with their cases and I just seem to think the 350D has pulled me in I really like it .

Thanks everyone for the help biggrin.gif

I have heard a lot of people complain about their TJ-08E front fan being too loud. It must be an issue with some cases but not all. Mine and my dads is extremely silent unless I flip the fan control switch on the side of the case to high, then it hums, but still not too annoying. I will have to agree with you though that the steel used on the case is a bit prone to scratches. As far as the side panels mounting tabs, I will say this, it wasn't the best design and I was a little disappointed because Silverstone regards them selves as high end case manufacturers and their case prices reflect that. In regards to the H80 in push/pull configuration, I noticed that the rear 120mm fan mount is only capable of push/pull config. if one of the fans is mounted outside the case. Now the front 180mm is capable of a push/pull set up within the case.

It may seem like I am all for the TJ-08E, but I really do not have a preference. At the time of my build this was the best case available for its size, so I used it. I love Corsair cases and I am very excited about the new 350D, but I want to add my opinion on the TJ-08E because all in all, I am very happy with it and it is noticeably smaller than the 350D.
