The SilverStone SST-TJ08-E Evolution Micro-ATX Case
The TJ08-e is exactly as described in the specifications. A black brushed aluminum sheet wraps around the pair of 5.25" bay covers at the top and the large mesh panel at the bottom. Splitting the two is the front I/O. At the very bottom is a 3.5" drive bay if you have to have that floppy drive.
The front I/O is pretty basic but offers all you really need. There are the 3.5mm jacks for headphone and a microphone flanked by a pair of USB 3.0 connections. To the right are a pair of LEDs, the left is hard drive activity, the right is the power indicator, and the light is blue for both. On the far right there is the smaller reset button and the larger power button, both covered in aluminum to complete the look.
Stepping back a bit, you can see that is really about it for things to look at thus far. The left side panel is flat and smooth making for a nice clean look.
In the back things might look a bit strange, but keep in mind the motherboard is upside down in this case. At the top is the power supply, then we run into the four vented expansion slots. Under those is a trio of holes. One is for the optional 120mm fan, the other is for the rear I/O plate to go into, and the last little one is a pop-out slot for CMOS clearing optional part. The right side panel is also plain and offers little more than a sound barrio and a way to hide messy cables.
The top of the TJ08-E has a dust filter that is magnetically held in place over the large mesh hole. This is intended to be used as the intake for the power supply, and that is why the dustcover is supplied in this location.
You can see under the chassis that the construction is a fair mix of screws and rivets to keep things together. Things that are removable such as part of the hard drive rack to the right, or adjustable like the CPU support system in the middle, are held in with screws. The body of the chassis is riveted, and supported on a table with four large rubber feet. The holes to the right without screws in them are for installing a 2.5" drive to the inside of the floor.
