Inside The SilverStone SST-TJ08-E Evolution Continued
With the tray out we can get a better look at how things are set up. Seven of the eight risers needed for a Micro-ATX board are welded to the tray, leaving the eighth one optional depending on the board's layout. There are two large holes on the left to pass wires through along with seven locations to tie wiring to. The hard thing to miss is the big access hole, but there is even a little cutaway at the bottom to allow the 8-pin to plug in with the bulk of the wire behind the scenes.
Removing the top may take a glance into the manual to find the screw locations, but once the six of them are removed, the top of the chassis slides to the back a bit and then lifts off for access. This allows you to finally be able to fit a PSU, and offers a good time to wire and install the drives going in the front of the TJ08-E.
I should have covered this before, but better late than never. With the drive cage removed, you can see the plastic layer applied to the top. This is to keep the graphics cards from dragging on metal, and offers a place to put a foam pad to help support longer graphics cards, and do it vibration free.
Removing the four screws I mentioned under the chassis, you can see now that to install an SSD into this placement, you need to do a fair bit of work to get here.
I had to break the wiring images up due to the length, and lack of, that made it near impossible to get them all in one shot. Here we have the longer of the cables for the HD Audio to supply the front panel. The large black connection is a native USB 3.0 connection. If you board supports this connection you are good to go. For those who don't, SilverStone has you covered as well.
The shorter group of wires is these four. There is the power LED connection, the HDD LED connection, the reset, and the power connections. These are shorter for good reason. They don't need to go as far with the orientation of the motherboard in the TJ08E without turning into a mess. The length is needed for the pervious connection to reach across the case, and is provided where needed.
