The Front Panel
The SilverStone Temjin TJ08-E has an aluminum front panel with two external 5.25” bays at the top and one external 3.5” bay at the bottom. Behind the big mesh you see in Figure 3, there is a 180 mm fan, model AP181, which works at 700 rpm/18 dBA or 1,200 rpm/34 dBA, depending on the position of a switch located on the right side of the front panel. Between this fan and the front panel, the case has an air filter that is really easy to remove from the right side of the front panel.
The buttons and connectors of the case are located on its front panel. The case comes with two USB 3.0 ports, which use an internal connector. They are connected directly to the motherboard, thereby not requiring you to connect the USB cables to the USB 3.0 ports located at the rear panel of the board. If your motherboard doesn’t have this type of header, you can convert it into a USB 2.0 header in order to use the USB 3.0 ports as USB 2.0 ports.
