I'll be installing the following hardware into the SilverStone Temjin TJ04-E:

Intel i7 4770K w/ factory cooler
Gigabyte Z87X-D3H
2 x 8GB Kingston HyperX Predator DDR3-2133
240GB Kingston HyperX 3K SSD
LG Hitachi 8X Blu-Ray Burner
SilverStone Temjin TJ04-E Evolution
SilverStone Strider Gold 650W
Windows 8 Professional

There were a few minor issues when it came to installing hardware in the Temjin TJ04-E. I've already touched on the riser slots and motherboard I/O being flush with the rear panel. I don't care for the attachment points being external, but more importantly the thin metal and lack of creases and bends makes the back panel flimsy, which is especially notable when installing the I/O trim plate and power supply. One of the liquid tubing knock-outs was missing and the other popped out during installation.

I like the fact that the interior of the case and all the supplied hardware is colored black, however there was a good deal of paint in the interior threads. What's more,the standoffs and screws are also painted, not anodized, which required extra effort to install. This leads to scratches, cross-threading or stripped threads and the quality of the paint is not the greatest, particularly on the hardware. Certainly not up to the same standard as the exterior finish and not what I have come to expect from SilverStone.

Let's wrap things up with some final thoughts and conclusion.
