Summary: With the Temjin TJ08-E Evolution, SilverStone has thrown down the gauntlet to other mini-tower makers. Thanks to some clever engineering, it's proven that gargantuan boxes aren't the only kids on the block who can play with high-end hardware.
Excerpt: SilverStone has a long-standing reputation among PC enthusiasts for providing a full line of high quality enclosures, power supplies, cooling components, and accessories. In 2006, SilverStone introduced the Temjin TJ08, an impressive Micro-ATX tower case with dual 120mm cooling fans.
Summary: The SilverStone TJ08-E Case is a fantastic option for anyone looking for a Micro-ATX tower case. There are plenty of drive bays, large 180mm fan, removable motherboard tray, black interior, stylish, excellent build quality and isn't going to break the bank.
Summary: We liked the concept of the SilverStone Temjin TJ08-E. It is a good option for users who want to build small yet powerful computers. It could cost a little less, but we think its price is fair.
Pros: Vented slot covers, Air filter for the front fan, Air filter for the power supply fan, Two-speed fan controller for the front fan, A huge hole in the motherboard tray for accessing the backplate of the CPU cooler, Holes for routing cables behind the motherboard tray, Support for five 3.5” and one...
Cons: Doesn’t come with the rear fan (not an issue in most situations), Slot covers are silver, not black, Could have used thumbscrews for fastening expansion cards
Conclusion: While we were initially puzzled by the SilverStone TJ08-E’s odd layout, we’re thoroughly convinced of its effectiveness after spending some time with it. Thanks to the removable exterior panels and motherboard tray, fitting hardware inside the small confines of the case is also an easy job, with few...
Summary: We were not lucky enough to review the original Temjin TJ08 and photos of the chassis explain a lot about the design and why it was popular. The design was actually quite typical for a MicroATX case and featured a SECC steel chassis and two 120mm cooling fans.
Summary: Despite its modest size, the SilverStone Temjin TJ08-E is a surprisingly strong performing microATX case. The key to its success is the massive 18 cm Air Penetrator intake fan that draws in cool air from the exterior and blows it over the hard drive cage and most of the motherboard.
