Inside the SilverStone Temjin TJ08-E
Both panels are attached to the chassis using black thumbscrews. The first thing you will notice upon opening the TJ08-E is that its motherboard tray is “flipped.” On virtually all tower cases, the motherboard is installed against the case’s right panel, and we need to open the left panel to install the motherboard and components. This case, however, uses the opposite configuration: the motherboard is installed against the left panel, and you need to open the right panel to install the motherboard and other components.
The motherboard tray has a huge hole for you to access the backplate of the CPU cooler without having to remove the motherboard from the case, two big holes for you to route cables behind it, and several metallic clips for you to fasten cables using cable ties.
In Figure 12, you have another overall look inside the case. Expansion cards are fastened using regular screws, but at least they are black. The SilverStone Temjin TJ08-E supports video cards up to 13.25” (336 mm) long and CPU coolers up to 6.5” (165 mm) tall, which is impressive for such a small case.
At the bot
tom panel, this case has CPU cooler support. This support can be moved up and down to hold your CPU cooler. This is a very interesting device, especially if you have a big CPU cooler.
As already explained, the power supply is installed at the top of the case. Note that it can be installed with either its bottom fan facing up or facing down, so you can decide if you want the fan of your power supply pulling air from inside the case or from outside of it.
