Re: Journey to a Silent MicroATX Gamer

How come the TJ08-E was not among the case alternatives? Is the Sugo 10 a better micro-atx case overall?

Combo of PS07 and TJ08-E coming in 2015.

Its the "KL06". http://www.cowcotland.com/news/42372/computex-2014-silverstone-kublai-kl05-kl06-precision-ps11-fortress-ft05.html I wonder if it isn't more of a revision of the PS07 as what makes the TJ08-E so effective is the 180mm fan but they opted for 2x120mm?

Re: Noiseblocker NB-eLoop 120mm fans

I made the misstake of ordering 3 of the elop B12-PS series because i forgot i had a bad experience with the 800rpm version. These fans are catastrophic. There is a audible buzzing noise that isn't just airflow being pushed. It is noticible even at 700rpm :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

Even thou its a cool concept for a true DYI build, the cost is staggering for a music server with less then 1TB space.

Nice build. Could you post pics with panels closed up?

I wonder about the 2x80mm solution, is it beneficial? Meaning have you tried without to see if temps change?

Re: ASUS GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II OC

My Asus GTX660Ti have 2 fans and the lowest they will go is 10% at 1020rpm. However at this point i cant seem to hear them because the vibration from 1 of my hardmounted Scythe GT 800rpm are louder because of vibration, also the 180mm fan as intake is problably louder at 400rpm.

Re: Harddrive screw broke off :(

The only thing that you can do is to drill out the screw which is risky for your own safety as well as for the HDD. Suspension is the best route, but in the TJ08-E the drive would have to be suspended at an odd angle or in a spare 5.25" drive bay. Good luck. Andy Yes i have decided i wont risk the ...

Re: Thoughts on Temjin TJ08B-E + Ivy Bridge Build

I would suggest the Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus instead. Its cheaper and performance will be just as good. SPCR even has a review on it.

Its unfortunate the Thermalright HR-02 Macho isn't on newegg. Would have been the best choice.

The reply i got from Noiseblocker on why the fans only run at 600rpm instead of the specified 800rpm is that they need to be run for 24h before the reach their max speed.
