The Build and Finished Product

The first thing I did after getting the hard drive racks out was to remove this motherboard tray. Removing thumbscrews under the top cover will allow this tray to slide up and out of the TJ11. You can see also that the 9+1 slots are really 9+ 0.5 or 0.25. The slot under the fan is for an accessory that is sold separately!

Fast forward about ten minutes and I had the motherboard installed, and you can see, I have a water cooled build in motion here.

After about another hour of trial and error I am now ready to slide the motherboard tray back in. When I did slide it in, I made the realization that the radiator sits "just" proud of the tray. Removing the screws and allowing it to settle to the board just a bit corrected this, but it reminds you to check all the angles.

I figured for those with keen sight, you would spot the dual fans behind the radiator. On fan was gutted to use as a spacer because this radiator wouldn't clear the rear I/O area without the extra spacing installed.

The front of the chassis doesn't change too much with my basic installation. Also since this is going to be sitting on my desk, I installed the optical drive as low as possible for easy access.

Here is the TJ11 with a triple radiator in the bottom along with an AX1200 PSU, which isn't a small power supply, and I had plenty of room for all of it. Using the pair of holes through the midsection of the chassis keeps the wiring and the tubing clean in their routing.

I just wanted to get a little closer so you can see just how clean the wiring is, and for those who appreciate a clean water loop, this shot was for you!

Since SilverStone provides it, why not use it. Since this dust cover is magnetic, it really takes no effort to stick it over the fan on your power supply. It does offer holes to be mounted, but the screws you see are actually in the PSU not the filter.

Looking in the back of the case you can see there isn't wiring going all over to get things powered up. You can also see that my triple rad. with fans on both sides still allowed room for the large PSU to the left. I tied up some wiring for cleanliness, but had no issues getting them where they needed to go.
