Your Opinion on the TJ07 - Page 2

post #11 of 32
I only recommend something thats aestetically pleasing to you and does everything you need. It took me a while but i fianlly chose one and im pretty happy with it. My last case i had for about 10 yrs so for me its somethin im gonna live with a while if its the same for you make sure you like looking at it. After i overcame that i was in pretty good shape. That case is alot of money. I could never spend that much. I hope you find something cheaper that you love

It's a great case, good for watercooling as well.


Check out Cyberdruids builds, he did one with that case, turned out great.

You can fit your rad in that bottom section.

Thanks for the links, that second build looks awesome! (rep)

I don't plan on liquid cooling, but I could consider it. How much does a LC system cost? (rep).

I might consider the CM 690 or Rocketfish. Any idea if the price of this TJ07 will go down in the next month or two? (rep)

Thanks for the other helpful comments, just give me a few minutes to read, reply, and rep accordingly.

Is there a good site for browsing all of the lian-li cases with prices? Newegg doesn't have many of them (rep).

It's expensive, but I find the design irresistibly intelligent (the layout and cooling solution) and it looks so classy.

Any opinions?
The TJ07 is probably the best case you can buy if you are water cooling. besides putting a radiator below, you can also fit a PA120.2 at the very top, so you can have 2 seperate loops without needing to do any mods to the case.


If you're going to be air cooling however, I would recommend a TJ10 instead.

Like few have said TJ07 is probably the best case for major watercooling without modding but in case of air cooling there's some problems in upper chamber and I would look for Lian Lis instead.

Are we talking about same Newegg?
Looks like lot of full towers and probably nearly all Lian Lis.

Okay, I've gotta be the guy to do this, because I'm a fanboy, lol. But I'm getting a TJ07 modded for me by Charles, the creator of the Murderbox. You should look at his site for ideas, and you could even email him and exchange ideas with him. He's got a lot of great experience with the TJ07's. I'm really excited about getting mine. It's a magnificent case. I thought I wanted a Lian Li until I saw what he could do with them.

EDIT: My avatar is a build he's working on, and it just shows a great cable management idea I want to steal from him. My profile pic is my actual case. All that's missing is the custom faceplate. Powder coating is a beautiful thing.
