    Cool Just purchased an TJ-11 today (Now w/ pics) 56k DEATH



























    Initial thoughts :

    Lighter then I thought it would be. 180mm fans were bigger then I had thought and also a lot quieter even on high.

    Finished installing everything but will have to redo it again later as the side panel won't want to fit back on (cables blocking the bottom air compartment).

    To bad I won't be using any watercooling until Ivy so probably going to disappoint some people in here, especially considering the case will now be worth more then the main components (Mobo,CPU,Ram) :P

    Those components are kind of 'worth' more only in the sense that I need it to run the computer

    Just had some extra money and was tired of using the fractal case I had been using.

    Wish I could, hasn't even shipped yet

    That's what I get for going with free shipping, they seem to take their sweet time. Got my 1200w set up at least currently running my setup on a mere 4 cables

    Rocking the no case still in the mean time (pic with old psu):



    Going to clean my room tomorrow and make space for this beast should it be shipped and on its way. I am hoping it can fit under my desk at least, I think it is a foot and a half tall. Got to measuring the cables on the new psu and it is 20mm which means once plugged in they are basically 10mm showing which is basically perfect (I hope) since I have only 20mm of clearance between the psu and the radiator once I install it. Probably won't get full water cooling until X79 but will most likely get impatient and just buy all the WC parts or at least try to get some sponsored gear to offset the cost of this project. Trying to learn google sketchup is hard just to make a render of the TJ 11

    Hi Matt

    Unfortunately we are currently out of stock of the Silverstone Temjin case you have ordered, however we are expecting to receive additional stock in approx 5-8 business days. Once available it will be shipped for you automatically and the tracking number will be posted under the Order Tracking page once shipped. If you do not wish to wait we can either exchange it for a different item or remove it from your order for a refund, whichever you prefer.

    Thanks

    ~~~~~~~

    Lol, would have been nice to know this when I ordered it on the 31st. Was wondering what was taking them so long so I emailed them and there is my answer. Tons of pics to be up once I actually get this thing.

    Being worth it is relative to the buyer, and often digs like this are a vain attempt to mask one's envy that they are comparatively poor.

    That said, the CPU and SSD in the sig, not to mention the platform, does seem somewhat outclassed by it. Were I to have that kind of money to spend I'd probably have prioritized a 1155 Z68 chipset MB with Smart Response, Pci-Ex 3, and 4 SATA III ports, which can be had for $190 (MSI). Then slap something like a Plextor 128GB SATA III SSD (around $200), divide it in half with a partition, and use one half for OS and apps, the other for Smart Response SSD caching. I'd run something like a i5 2320 on it for now, which can be had at $175, and put an Ivy Bridge CPU and Pci-ex 3 GPU on it come Mar 2012.

    They are very much so outclassed. There is really no point to getting a new i5 setup though with x79 around the corner, I can wait a few more months to have better performance. I use this rig for gaming so there is literally no benefit in upgrading to either platform except for some numbers in a benchmark. I'm still not sure whether or not to get a new ssd though as that has tempted me, have another $800 or so to spend on Friday buying more useless stuff so unsure wheter or not I want to do more upgrades. Thinking I might try my hand at some google sketchup and try to design the TJ11 and the build I want to do with it and then possibly try to get some sponsors to save a bit of time and money on my end.

    No vain, no poor, and relativity is "nksharp" stronger point.

    A decent render, photoshop etc. would show your parts are still up to par, and for gaming it`s more than sufficient, , as for X79, it looks promising.



    As for this thread, I`ll be following it, from my wood-heated, battery powered, and somewhat damp cave, praying for better days.

    I wasn't referring to an "i5 setup" per se. I was mainly referring to 1155 as a platform vs X58. Yeah LGA 2011 will have octo core support, but games won't use that at all. The 1155 supports Sandy Bridge & Ivy Bridge, Pci-Ex 3.0, and Smart Response if you go Z68. Pci-Ex 3.0 will benefit gaming, and the Smart response boost system and app performance up to 40%. When Pci-Ex 3.0 GPUs come out, you'll be able to get the equivalent of x16/x16 Pci-Ex 2.0 bandwidth on two x8 Pci-Ex 3.0 slots. Intel's 1155 platform is one of the most well rounded, and priced so well it affords you the things you are only contemplating as future purchases, now, rather than later, like that 128GB SSD I was referring to, which has 420 read speed vs 500 on some SATA III SSDs, but it's write speed is 210 vs their 175.

    Actually what's funny is you thinking you're some kind of parts guru to the point of slamming people for what they purchase, yet you got sucked into buying two 480 toasters.

    I`d better go back then, to my wood-heated, battery-powered, somewhat damp cave and find warmth by my toasters.

    Haven't really started it at all yet

    Should be a bit easier since I have the case now though. Need to re rout all my cables since I messed it up the first time. Couldn't put side panel back on since I didn't bother really routing the cables since I just did it quick and dirty.

    Got myself a sponsor for my build now, FTW PC. Talking about getting an 8 bay reservoir made for my case as well which should be pretty awesome.

    Not powdercoating it if that is what you mean. Painting the fans for my radiator (once I get them).

    Nope, still waiting on GT 2150 fans. Might be buying some radiators this week however and should have a custom (8 bay) reservoir soon from FTW.

    A lot of waiting on this project due to so many custom things required unfortunately. Should have the ball rolling once I get the fans and reservoir though (whenever that may happen).

    I'll have to see about borrowing a friends DSLR or something too so I can take worthwhile photos. Also may look into getting another sponsor for some of the hardware, already got most of the watercooling parts figured out at least just need to figure out a loop order and that's about it.

    OCN finally got the GT 2150's made from Nidec so once I get those I will probably make a new thread of a build log here and some other places and probably set up a website. About damn time I get this thing started I think :/

    Ordered 16 fans and probably only need 11 or so I believe. Might have to give the rest away or something.

    I was wondering if you ordered barebones or completes

    I'll be watching to see how this progresses

    Hopefully I can get this thing rolling soon, starting to get annoying having such an awesome case with old parts in it

    Not sure when these GT 2150's will ever get to me though is my problem right now. Talks with FTW are very slow.

    Bought a new SSD today since mine keeps getting full and I want some extra space for some games :

    http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=62...t&promoid=1012

    Thinking once I get my custom resevoir to shoot off some emails to some companies to see if I can't get any sponsor or two.

    Edit : Looks like I should be getting my new ssd today at least

    Status On vehicle for delivery

    Also got an email from FTW saying they will be getting some new acrylic for the resevoir so hopefully that gets done soon. Once I have that I will make a proper build log thread and take better pics
