Inside The SilverStone SST-TJ11B-W Tower Chassis
Here is the TJ11 with both panels removed so we can have our first look inside. I will just let you sit and absorb what all is going on, as I am going to cover each part individually.
Behind the front panel there is room for up to 9 5.25" devices, but only six go through the face of the TJ11. The bottom three can be used if you choose to remove one of the hard drive racks and use it in here, as they are designed to go right in here.
These are the drive racks I just mentioned. Each rack has three trays for hard drives with quick releases on the front to allow easy access to hot swapping hard drives here. I will also show these closer in the hardware section, after I removed them.
To the right of the hard drive racks, SilverStone lines the floor with two strips of rubber so that the power supply or supplies don't get scratched on their sides. I will cover the routing and you will see the amount of room here is much bigger than this image portrays.
Just above where the power supplies go in there are a pair of slots that run through the body of the case. These allow the pair of 180mm AP fans to get a good supply of cooler air into the motherboard compartment. To keep dust out, there is a pair of dust filters that you can remove for easy cleaning.
The motherboard tray is rotated to the right ninety degrees to allow convection to work its magic with all the heat generated inside going straight out the top like a chimney. Some of the risers do come pre-installed around the rather large CPU cooler access hole
Looking at the motherboard I/O area, you can see the expansion slots use screws to hold cards securely into place while hanging here, and that they include a 120mm fan to aid the flow of air out the top.
I know this image is slightly random, but I just wanted to accentuate the fact that this chassis is completely screwed together. Not a single rivet was harmed in the assembly of this chassis.
Looking behind the motherboard tray and the rest of the chassis there are a couple things I'd like to point out. The chassis is pre-wired internally to keep them out of the way, the odd looking places for screws on the optical drive bays, and the pair of 120mm AP fans to cool the hard drive bays.
If you look just beyond the SATA cables you can see an oval pass through hole for some of you cabling needs. There is another in between the 180mm AP fans that allows you to get power to the motherboard and cards cleanly.
The case wiring is short in comparison to what we typically see in a case. SilverStone does a really good job of giving you just enough wiring, but not too much to look a mess later in the build. On the left there are the 3-pin plugs for the 180mm fans and the top 120mm fan. Hanging down in the middle are a pair of USB 3.0 cables to connect to the rear I/O, and on the right are all the power, activity, and USB motherboard connections.
