At Computex this past June, we had a chance to look at some upcoming products from various manufacturers such as Thermtaltake, CoolerMaster, and Lian Li. Lian Li's BTX style case, the V line, proved to be an innovation of its own, but had a few minor drawbacks.
SilverStone was also at Computex and brought a few of its new products, including the Temjin 6, which is a direct competitor for Lian Li's PC-V1000. Many expected BTX to be the major theme of the show this year, but were disappointed to find that only a handful of names were showing off their BTX equipment. And to increase the appetite for the BTX standard, SilverStone took it upon itself to display the Temjin 6, an ATX form factor case with a BTX look.
This is our third look at a SilverStone product and we have yet to be disappointed. Our look at the Temjin 5 in August proved that even though SilverStone has moved away from using aluminum as its primary construction material, they can still develop a product with great value. So, let's take a look at the sixth product in SilverStone's Temjin line, the Temjin 6.
More information on the Temjin 6 is available at SilverStone Technology's website.
