Yes the power supply exhaust out the bottom.

@66racer: Ive seen the build by metallicacids ...amazing. Even though its a little too much for me. I think he should have gone with the power supply attached to the front panel.

I am also thinking about doing that... amazing idea to get more room in the bottom (when you build it upside down)

Looking forward to hearing from your build!

I ended doing a g3258 build with mine as well for my father in law. I think my next personal build might stay inside my current tj08b-e, That or buy another tj08b-e and do a new window mod and powder coat it.

Anyways here is how my build turned out:




Intel g3258 Pentium Overclocked to 4.4ghz
Intel integrated graphics
OCZ arc100 120GB SSD
Gskill 8GB ddr3 memory
Corsair CX430M
Asrock h97 m-itx motherboard
Stock cpu cooler
DIYpc brushed aluminum PC
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Nice, that will be a challenge lol but fun too!

Yeah I may end up using this case for an HTPC soon on another build. It just looks so good. With the birth of my twin boys I lost the computer room for their room and soon my pc will probably move into the garage work area. Cant go without some sort of pc in the house so I think I will dive into an HTPC with wireless keyboard and all....we'll see. I also like some of silverstones HTPC cases for that.

I have built a few high end systems and the g3258 was the lowest cpu I have used in who knows how long, once that thing broke 4.0ghz I was truly impressed with it. Getting 4.4ghz on the stock cooler was even more impressive, I didnt try for more as temps I think were 78C already. My father in law will only use it for web browsing but man I wanted to through my spare 212evo on it and see how much higher it could go!

I sadly got a dub and it wont go past 3.7 even at 1.4v , but if your planning on using a longer gpu, I'd either get a short sfx non modular psu, or go with the evga hadron air, will report the build process probably late sat night.

Yeah I agree about the power supply, but I got that one with the intention of the build purpose. If it were for a gaming build like I originally planned I was looking at silverstones small power supplies.

Well they didnt bring my board today, so it will be late tomorrow I guess, all in one 120 cooler fits fine (zalman lq310) so lets see what we can do cable management wise.
post #30 of 789
shame i only found this thread now, would get alot more attention in the SFF forums me thinks.

besides the top blow hole mod heres a few extra tips for cable management that I've done.

i cut out the sections that i've yellowed on the mobo tray



"some" AIO watercoolers would fit , fractal kelvin would not. i tried it and the rad is just too tall and wide.

due to my mobo CPU socket placement (z77e) the pump/block ended up higher then the rad and i couldnt even get the thing to cycle water through it. now im just stuck with an nonworking build till i sort how do i get water flowing part
