Re: Temjin TJ08-E 140mm fan replacement?

Its a shame they didnt cut out enough for 2x120mm fans. It would have been good value for the customers.

Re: SilverStone Temjin TJ04-E Evolution Case

What i do not understand is why Silverstone release TJ04-E when they have the TJ08-E. They should have focused on improving the TJ08-E instead. Introduced better HDD cage and made out holes for 2x120mm fans instead of 1x180mm fan as an option as well as change the bad 180mm fan. Cant help but think ...

Re: Noctua NH-L12 Low Profile Cooler

ANC for headphones is really not that difficult. All the action happen at one point -- at your ears. The mic is positioned almost exactly where the headphone driver/diaphragm is, and it can cancel out the noise the mic picks up coming through the headphone housing. This is why the Bose headphones a...

Re: Some questions regarding the Silverstone TJ-08E

I have 1xScythe Slipstream700rpm@12v on my Noctua NH-U12 for my i5-2500K. 1xScythe GT 1150rpm@600v on my Arctic S1 for my HD6950. 1x180 AP @ 300rpm. First off the 180mm isnt very effective because it has bad noise signature even on 300-400rpm. Problem with the AP is that at higher RPM the bad noise ...

Thank you for the reply, i decided not to as well. However i realised Noctua fans arent that good and one of them is probably broken. I have had some of them for 4+ years as well so i guess it was bound to happen.

I got my TJ08-E and installed it yesterday and even thou the fan is loud even at low it didnt have that growl that your fan had. Contact silverstone and say your fan is broken and have a growl. Ask them for a different version fan as well, if your lucky they will give you the non AP 180mm 700rpm fan...

Re: ADATA XPG SX910 128GB Solid State Drive

Bought the Samsung 128gb for about 170$ 4-5 months ago and now its available for 100$. I dont think the premium of the ADATA 910 drive is worth it considering its possible to get the ADATA 900 drive for 100$ as well as the Samsung drive. One is paying a premium essentially for the extra 7% space.

Re: Need advice on z77 mobo, should i go cheap or not?

Thanks everyone, i decided i will go with the Asus board. Its less of a hassle and i dont plan on changing cpu again the next couple of years and i dont think GPU sockets(PCE-E) will change so baring the board breaks on me it would probably be ok.

Thanks again for your input. :wink:

That's a big premium. Fan Xpert 2 is probably as good as it gets right now, but what is that premium compared to? Cheap mobo + separate controller? Yeah it seems that is the only other option.
