         Introduced in 2004, the TJ04 has been a main stable of SilverStone’s prestigious Temjin series of tower chassis. Its excellent original design needed only a few minor tweaks and improvements over the years to keep up with the demands of modern PC hardware. An important equation in keeping the TJ04 a popular choice among system builders was its understated and classic styling. So in designing the TJ04-E (Evolution), SilverStone engineers kept the exterior styling largely unchanged while vastly improving the internals.
          The power supply is now bottom-mounted with the ability to accommodate up to four 5.25” drives, nine 3.5” hard drives and six SSDs, raising the bar significantly for storage capacity in a mid tower format. In addition to increased storage capacity, the TJ04-E can also install cards up to 17 inches (431mm) without the need to remove any hard drive cage, a feat usually accomplished in full towers. To make sure the myriad of component can operate effectively, the TJ04-E includes a custom cooling solution to reduce hard drive temperatures and two custom cables with built-in capacitors to facilitate cable management and improve drive stability.
          To finish up TJ04-E’s already impressive layout efficiency, design details borrowed from other great SilverStone products such as positive pressure and quick removable filters will enable users to easily maintain consistently high performance for years to come. So it is possible that TJ04-E, like its predecessor, will again be able to outlast many generations of PC builds.

A:The TJ04-E has a unique 5cm spacing designed between the drive cage and the intake fan, which enables cool air to flow directly onto installed hard drive’s aluminum surface. This design has been validated by SilverStone’s R&D team through repeated thermal testing to be fully capable in coping with fully installed cage. The extra 5cm spacing also allows TJ04-E’s graphics card cooling to be unaffected by the number of hard drives installed.

A:The hard drive fan and hard drive noises can leak out through the right intake vents so we recommend placing your PC to your right side to turn away the noise source.

A:The extra space there is designed for cable storage. If you are using a non-modular power supply, you can store extra cables there. Even if you use modular power supply, you can still store unused cables in the extra space to avoid misplacing them.

A:You may install the radiator where the top fan is located. Since installing the radiator there will interfere with a large CPU air cooler, the radiator must be used for CPU cooling.

A:This is to avoid hard drive’s connected SATA cables interfering with long graphics cards

A:If you install multiple high-speed hard drives in the TJ04-E, attaching heat sink onto hard drives can help cool them more effectively. The heat sinks are not made for fanless cooling, they still need fans for maximum cooling efficiency. Please make sure all screws are tightly secured to ensure the best possible conduction cooling. There is no need to apply thermal grease between hard drives and heat sinks as it does not improve cooling performance from testing we have conducted.

A:This is absolutely to be avoided. The custom SATA cable connectors are designed to facilitate cabling and reduce clutter with multiple SATA devices. Each cable from power supply has limited capacity to handle the combined current draw from multiple hard drives so we highly recommend connect one custom SATA cable with a single power cable from the power supply
