Silverstone TJ11 Carbon.....Final pics



Sponsored by:









Hello my friends.

About 4 weeks I was doing nothing, My wife was getting crazy.
But now it is here ......... a new build, with a beautiful case, the Silverstone TJ11
When I first saw the case I had something like "I to want to mod this one"

I must admit that a number points are not so nice at this case.
This "negative" points I will certainly adjust. But they have also a lot of beautifull things renewed.
The main hardware and other materials

De hardware:

Case: Silverstone TJ11
PSU: Coolermaster 1200w
Motherboard: I’m not quite sure, but for the fitting and measuring, gonna use a EVGA Classified E759
Processor: i7 930
GPU: 3 x GTX 480
Memory: 6 x 2GB Corsair DDR3 1600
HDD: 2 x SSD 120GB And some sata

Cooling:

Water cooling of course, but have to gather and brainstorm what best suits the TJ
So it’s a bit of a gray area. But I have some great ideas.
For now:

2 x EK 360 radiator
EK HF Supreme plex
EK Ram cooler plex
BitspowerSilver shiny
Tygon tube Transparant
And more…….

Other products/ materials:

MDPC Sleeve, colors: Black and...........yellow
Carbon fiber film
SMD lighting I think, but not too much this time
Some Acryl, yellow and black

About what exactly will happen, I will not say too much for now. I have a lot of ideas

The beginning:

My hero the guy of GLS, delivered the package of highflow.
Luckily, he treats the case with love and the TJ is without damage.
It’s big, really big…………..but beautifull

De Silverstone TJ11

The box



Out of the box























Inside

Top-mounted slide out motherboard tray



9 uninterrupted 5.25” drive bays





9+1 expansion slots



6 x 3.5” hard drive trays





Dual see-through air intake vents







Dual ATX/PS2 PSU compartment



2 x AP121 fans with hot-swap adapters



Extra large motherboard tray cut-out for CPU cooler backplates



And a little box with small stuff



Manual……….lol



Fasteners, unfortunately silver not black. Missed opportunity



SSD Brackets



Horizontal mount bracket for the PSU



Filter



PSU cable



And a Silverstone logo for on the case or something. could laugh about this



Because the painted this on my beautiful expensive case



Do not mind that it’s made in China, but please don’t do this anymore
This was the case step by step. next challenge is to brainstorm how to install the various components.
New case, new challenges I love it ............... to be continued

Grtzzz.

Always a pleasure to watch you work Kier, subscribed on blind faith. But where are you getting all cool stuff? (looks at sponsors) Dammit. It's like you shake a sponsor tree and it rains awesome!

I think he just built up a very good reputation because of his awesome previous builds and sponsors tend to give more to good modders I think..

Looking forward to your ideas for this case.

I was very tempted by this case, but the price was just too much I went for an Xigmatek Elysium instead. Is strange how then printed that on the back, never seen that before...

Thnx, Most of the stuff I have is from buying and selling. I wish I had a sponsor tree
most of the sponsors has came to me instead of contacting them. I think the key is hard work, be original, be yourself and...............no compromise

Thank you, reputation is important for sponsors yes I think. also the trust relation is very important
It,s all giving and taking

I'm really excited about this build! You've got one of the most desired cases currently on the market paired with a modder who has rapidly risen to the top of his realm. It's like anticipating a big sporting event...ha!

I approached kier about sponsoring him after he won MOTM. We had already established an ongoing dialogue after I contacted him about featuring his Cooler Master HAF-X on my blog. I ask people that I've gotten to know personally or observed over a long period of time. ...After all, they're representing me and my business.

Besides Talent! they should also possess these attributes

1. Already has established work on the web, including other popular forums.
2. Can author a work log with good photography.
3. Friendly & Positive Attitude! Answers viewer questions
4. Easily reachable and can maintain open dialogue with me.
5. Fulfills my obligations, ie: posts our banner, store photos and links.

So there you have it, and I just may be watching you!

Yay! Finally a TJ11 project log! I was a bit concerned it was never gonna happen! Great to see this and Bloody_Pete's Elysium build. It's been a while since we've seen some decent new water-cooling friendly cases come under the Dremel.

Nice man, not a fan of the see thru vents in the 11, the 7 is a much nicer design IMO.
Will be interesting to see where you go with this

Update: dismantling the TJ

What a pleasure, I didn’t need this today. No rivets in this case



Only used this one



Have almost the entire case apart and this is what’s left



First removed the air intakes what was quiet easy apart from one thing



The speed controllers on top are not with a connector, so had to remove it from the case





Back side with the filters



Hotswaps also removed



These will still be used





The fans from the bays



When this was out, had playtime with some motherboards
Find the board



Small isn’t it, can you see it?
No, not this one......... but for now this one



Still is a nice motherboard with the EK blocks. Maybe it willstay with some changes to the red, but I’m still not sure





Back of the tray. Enough space for swapping the backplate





Enough slots





Continuing the dismantling. The top panel is simply push / click, but it’s a very nice design, therefore some pics





Other side





Quick look at how it’s gonna be with a 360 radiator





PSU in..........lots of space



Further......still with my Phillips screwdriver, the drive bays. Very easy to disassemble



Had to disconnect the power switch because it is connected to the switch on top





Nice hole can be adjusted



Omg where is the TJ?



Midplate. This was a bit more difficult, I had to remove the motherboard slide
But still managed without too much trouble



It’s huge ……..63 cm



Hmmm, not much left of it





And again placed the 2 radiators inside with the fans on the inside pulling air through the radiators



Like this I have enough space between radiators for the tubes



psu in it. Not the psu that is finally coming in, but I had this one lying around





And some pictures of the color combination
Carbon and black



Yellow sleeve with it



And always nice..........the black one



Looks nice!!!

Just ordered some stuff for the case itself. I will keep you informed
Grtzzz.
