- Silverstone TJ08-E or PS07 case
Seasonic SS-400FL 400W fanless 80 plus gold
Gigabyte GA-H77M-D3H (no overclocking)
Intel i7-3770S (65W TDP)
CPU cooler (still looking)
8GB RAM (2x4GB) Crucial Ballistix Tactical DDR3 1600 (8-8-8-24)
no video card (using the integrated HD 4000 graphics)
Plextor M3 128GB SSD drive (boot drive, Windows 7)
3.5" hard drive
optical drive (in top 5.25" external bay)
3.5" card reader (in TJ08-E lower bay, or PS07 second 5.25" bay)
- the 180mm fan is somewhat noisy (and there are few aftermarket 180mm options)
the 180mm fan makes a clicking sound even at low speeds
the case is prone to vibration from a hard drive
Alternatively, I could go with the PS07, install the card reader in the second 5.25" bay, and install the hard drive in either the hard drive cage or the lower 3.5" cage, whichever produces less vibration. If the two 120mm fans are noisy, there are lots of aftermarket options.
Seeking comments and suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
