The SilverStone SST-TJ11B-W Tower Chassis




The front of the TJ11 has an art deco feel with its smooth surfaces, stepped back edges, and sleek accent lines that really set off this chassis own style. The sides are flanked with a lowered aluminum edging that wraps from the bottom, up the front, and down the edges of the top. On the face, you find simply six 5.25" bay covers and a large power button with a chromed accent ring around it.




The left of the TJ11 is behind the motherboard tray. Even so it offers slots for ventilation in the middle, and angled cubes cut with steel mesh inserted to allow for air to flow easily in the bottom compartment.




With the rotated motherboard tray design, the rear of the chassis is very plain. At the top there is a painted "Made in China" and at the bottom is one of the two power supply mounting plates. Notice the PSU will sit on its side; this helps slide the second PSU in right next to it.




The right side matches the left except for one major change. This side has this very well placed window that uses eight screws that are Allen wrench driven and coated with a chrome finish.




The top of the chassis wraps with a curve down to the front bezel, and just before this piece hit the removable rear top panel of venting seen here; there is yet another power button on top of the case. Having two buttons allows for this chassis to be sat on a desk or on the floor while allowing easy access to the powering of the PC.




On the right of that power button, tucked in the side above the stepped sides, you will find both the microphone and headphone jacked flanked on either side with USB 2.0 ports.




Tucked in the same spot, on the left side of the top, you will find connectivity for a pair of USB 3.0 ports and a tiny black reset button. The power buttons will light to display system power, but this reset button is LED backed for hard drive activity display.




Removing the top panel and reorienting the case, this is the "rear" I/O, which is technically the top I/O for the motherboard. There is a bunch of venting with large square openings, the 9+1 expansion slots, a 120mm fan, and a pair of switches to control the 180mm AP fans inside.




Under the chassis, the curve of the front wraps under the chassis and is padded with a large rubber foot. The rear of the chassis has a stack of four stepped rubber pads to make each foot. The screws you see here at the bottom are to remove the hard drive bays. I will get to it in detail later, but keep these screws in mind.
