I'll have one 9.5 mm thick 2½" SSD, one 5¼" Blu-ray burner and two 3½" 7200 rpm hard-drives. I intend to use the external 3½" bay for a card reader/USB3 hub. PCIe cards will be just the graphics card and a Sound Blaster ZX.DPete27 wrote: How many hdds and SSDs are you putting in there?
Can I have my cake and eat it too? I'm planning for the controllers to slow all of the fans down to a nearly-inaudible level when I'm reading and posting on TR's forums, then spin them up to wherever they need to be to keep things nice and cool while I'm playing Guild Wars 2 or other games.Chrispy_ wrote: Are you going for silent-running or overclocking?

I can't remember if the TJO8-E came with perforated PCI slot covers but that made sense to me when I built it.
Thanks for that. It does make clear that the perforated slot covers provide a vent for heat from the graphics card. I'll have just one of those blocked with the sound card.thebluebumblebee wrote: Here's an image of one with an H80.
