The Bad

- Heavy steel internal construction

The first time we took a SilverStone Technology case out of its box, we were amazed at its style and size. The TJ03 Nimiz was a monstrous product that had great features, such as a sliding removable motherboard tray, a seemingly endless potential for expandability, and, of course, an all aluminum construction with clean cut edges.

SilverStone Technology has a pretty good record of well designed cases having the features that most consumers look for when shopping for a PC chassis. Besides standard desktop cases, SilverStone has an entire product line, which includes HTPC cases, power supplies, HDD enclosures, and various types of rheobuses.

Recently, SilverStone Technology sent us a sample of the fifth product in their Temjin line, the TJ05 . We expected a product that could either match or surpass the quality of the TJ03 Nimiz. When we unwrapped this revision, we were not disappointed. So let's get to it. Ladies and gentlemen, the Temjin 5...

    Why does the reviewer call a concave door "convex"? Reply

    Wow, that's a really nice looking case. Great review, and thanks for picking a non-ugly case to review this time. :)

    Almost makes me wish I had waited until now to build my machine... I like that case a lot better than my current one.

    Finally a case that does not burn out your retinas by looking at it. Great review.



    P.S. Is there a Thermaltake Tsunami Case Review in our near future? :D

    I appreciate the inclusion of more pictures showing the case with the components installed. For example, seeing a full size motherboard installed gives me a better feel for the actual dimensions of the case, and I can see how easy it would be to work inside of it. The highlighting of the space between the bottom of the power supply and the motherboard is also important to me, since you sometimes have to worry about CPU heatsinks overhanging the edge of the board, depending on how close to the motherboard edge the socket is placed.

    Thanks for the review.

    I agree. In context, it seems like the author meant to say "an entirely ALUMINUM chassis would have appealed more..."
