Silverstone TJ10 for WC rig?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok, got my new rig all planned out except for one thing... the case. Don't know whether to go w/ the Silverstone TJ10 or the CoolerMaster Cosmos S. And then I see this mind-blowing build over on the XtremeSystems forum done w/ a TJ07, so now I'm thinking that's a possibility. Help me out, guys... Is the TJ10 suitable for watercooling? Here's my setup:

Mobo: EVGA 790i Ultra
CPU: Q6600
RAM: 2x2Gb G.Skill DDR1066
Video: 2x EVGA 8800GTX
HD: 4x Seagate Barracuda SATA (500Gb)

Watercooling

Not sure entirely how I'm setting this up yet. May do a dual loop like TJ07 build.

Pump: DD12V-D5 (x2?)
CPU WB: DTek Fuzion
GPU WB: DD-8800GTX (x2)
Rad: ThermoChill PA 120.3
Fans: Yate Loon D12SM-124B

Still looking for a good reservoir.


So that's it. Which case do you think would work best for now and for future modifications?

If you mount the rad externally, the TJ10 will be ok. I like the TJ07 better as most people stick the rad in the HDD / PSU area with very little modifications required. However the air flow in the TJ10 is fantastic but since it's the same price as a TJ07. .. . . I'd get that =p

Also I'm not sure the PA 120.3 is big enough for the Quad and two GTX's. I have the 480GTX for those system specs. Also, I would recommend getting the EK GTX water blocks rather than the DD ones. I'm a big fan of the Swiftech Micro-res for a reservoir.

Hrm... and I just bought a (albeit used) Swifty 120.3. Ah well. If I make it a dual loop, which I think I might, I'll just route the dual 8800's through one loop w/ the 120.3 and the CPU through another (probably w/ a 120.2).

So, neither of you like the Cosmos for that build?

I personally would suggest a Cosmos S because of my experience with it you can check out the pics in my worklog in my sig.... I have three loops in my case got a 360 BIX uptop for the GPUs got a 240 GTS in the 5.25" bays for the CPU and a 120 in the exauhst fan slot for the NB... having said that I would also recommend the TJ07 I have seen sooo many amazing build for it and its just amazing how easy it is to fit a 360 and a 240 at the bottom of the case where the PSU and the HDDs usualy go...but its all cool both of those cases are amazing
