The Build and Finished Product Continued

Behind the motherboard tray, there isn't a whole lot of room for wiring. I did have enough room to run the 8-pin EPS wire, and use an adapter for length. Now this fit fine, but anything thicker will cause issues with the bottom of the motherboard tray or the supports on both sides.

I didn't grab any drives for this as I wasn't using them for the build, but I thought I should still highlight this inconspicuous placement to keep your SSDs out of sight.

You can see the radiator lines up really well with the mesh, and the TJ11 was designed to do just this. I am disappointed at the fact that there isn't any sort of radiator support supplied. Again, there is one for SilverStone cases, but it is only available at an extra cost.

There isn't much going on behind the chassis, in fact the only thing to change was the PSU now being installed.

The top of the chassis fills out with the board in place. The pair of USB 3.0 cables are long enough to get here easily and as you can see still tuck away and stay out of your way. Something else I noticed is that this seems deeper from the cover than did the Raven. This allows for regular DVI cables and HDMI cables, where before you had to look for 90 degree connections.

Powered up and testing the fans, I thought this was a great opportunity to step back and appreciate the TJ11 a little more.

Even with the doors on, with a little effort to grab the edge of the filters, they are removable for simple maintenance.

The power button at the top of the chassis has clear plastic under it and the line at the top is removed so that the blue LED light can shine through.

The power button at the bottom of the front is built the exact same way and shines with blue LED whenever the PC is powered on. Aside from the occasional flicker of blue LED from the reset button, this is the only case lighting of the TJ11 as it ships.
