The TJ04-E comes with a multitude of mounting screws, some zip ties, two large aluminum hard drive heatsinks, a USB 3.0 to 2.0 adapter, two SATA power extenders and a detailed installation manual.

The power supply opening is at the bottom of the case and has provisions for mounting either way. There are foam strips along the bottom to rest on and ventilation for the fan. There is an optional 120mm fan mounting location in front of the power supply in lieu of the six bay 2" drive cage. The cage comes out with four screws in the bottom panel. A 120mm exhaust fan is mounted in the rear and an additional 120mm intake mounted in the top. An optional 120mm or 140mm fan can also be installed at the top. As mentioned previously, the riser slot attachments must be accessed from outside the case by first removing the cover.

There are plenty of access holes around the motherboard tray for passing cables through, all with rolled edges. The TJ04-E supports up to nine 3" drives, eight in the removable cage and one at the bottom. Four screws secure the cage within the case. A handy swing-out chrome handle provides for easier removal and carry. The four 5" bays have provisions for tool-less and screw mounting and the blank filler panels are all held in with both. The tool-less hold downs are an easy-to-use plastic pin on a hinged flap that snaps in place.

Plastic slotted guides are attached to the top and bottom of the 3" drive cage for easy alignment and scratch-free removal and installation. The back side of the cage is left open for better airflow, or optionally the included massive heatsinks can be bolted to the drives if you have some that run particularly hot. If you can make due with only one 3" drive bay and need extra interior room, such as for a water pump or reservoir, the drive cage can be left out entirely. Behind the cage are the two 120mm side intake fan positions, one of which is included.

Let's get some hardware installed into the Temjin TJ04-E.
