yeah i have mine setup as ap181 intake blows air to the push/pull kuhler 920 which sucks and pulls air out through the rad
just added a video card + CPU cooler + another HDD to my TJ08-E..
5.25 bezel? link please?!
Question for those of you who have installed the 200mm rad in the front, do you loose the ability to use a card reader in the bottom 3.5" bay?
I can check, but i think you lose the 3.5" slot.
Ye, you lose it.
That design reminds me of certain InWin cases from the 90s
Ok back onto the watercooling thoughts,
Will the Phobya Xtreme 200mm Radiator fit ok? or if not the Magicool Slim 180mm Single, not sure which one people use?
i haven't used the a04 but i have the tj08e and it's just awesome. i'd say the build quality is great, nothing feels flimsy, everything is made out of good quality material and is sturday and it's all blacked out and spacious. The 180mm fan in the front puts out huge amounts of air too
where else are you guys mounting your SSD, besides the bottom of the case?
I've removed both drive cages entirely.
finished my build several weeks ago, but was just too lazy to upload any pics so I decided to get off my ass today and contribute to this awesome thread...
There are a few more in my gallery over @ Imgur
The intake fan, even at lowest speed, is a bit noisy for my liking.
For those of you guys who have changed fans? What alternatives are there?
It seems the Phobya is the only other 180mm fan available, what version have you guys used?
Besides the included speed switch, you can use the motherboard to control AP181's fan speed via voltage adjustment. Nearly all enthusiasts motherboards nowadays allow you to do this and it's free.
So I highly recommend that you guys give AP181 a second chance before buying another fan. The AP181 is capable of starting as low as 5V so it will spin down to 500rpm, which should be really quiet. We have a Q&A section on the AP181 product page that goes into a little bit more detail on what you can do:
Here is also another really good article on software fan control that could be applied to AP181 (and other case fans):
