SilverStone Temjin Series steel body MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

In 2006, SilverStone launched the Temjin TJ08, an impressive micro-ATX tower case with then unheard of dual 120mm fan configuration. It helped pioneered the idea of big tower cooling performance in small packages. Five years later, improved technology and design has enabled SilverStone engineers to create another pioneering small tower case in the TJ08 Evolution (TJ08-E). To improve cooling performance, a class leading "Air Penetrator" 180mm fan was installed behind the front panel to create virtual airflow tunnel with positive air pressure, which also improves quietness and dust prevention.

Standard enthusiast features retained or improved include removable motherboard tray and top panel, CPU back plate cutout, all black painted interior, removable filters for all intake vents, and beautifully finished aluminum front panel. Features unique to the TJ08-E are its ability to accommodate long cables from high-end power supply and storage room for one 2.5" hard drive and up to five 3.5" hard drives. If you are looking for a classic, cleanly styled premium micro-ATX tower with the latest chassis construction technology to house top-of-the-line components, the TJ08-E is it.

4 out of 5 eggsOverall great with a couple drawbacks

Pros: Overall quality is excellent. It's solid, the airflow is excellent, it's easy to clean, and doesn't have any plastic parts that look like they'll break after a year or two. Front panel ports and buttons are good quality and well placed. I expect the case to last a few years. Case is reasonably light.

Cons: When the side panel is off, the case is not very rigid, and I was a little concerned about bending the top panel when I was working on it. Some of the screw holes are too easily stripped: I've stripped one of the screw holes for the drive bays, and I'm not pleased with the idea that the other one might get stripped if I want to swap hard drives out over the lifetime of the case. The four small screws holding the top panel are also worrisome, and you really need to remove the top panel in order to access the power supply if you use a modular power supply. No 2.5" drive bays. Can't use a 5.25" to 3.5" bay adapter with the drive bay covers installed, because the drive bay cover uses the same screw holes as the drive.

Other Thoughts: I would like to see a similar micro ATX case with no 5.25" bays. It's been a couple years since I've used an optical disc on my computer, and removing the 5.25" bays would open up a lot of space, to give you extra clearance around the CPU so you can use a larger CPU cooler without running into the 3.5" and 2.5" drives.

1 out of 5 eggsForget it if you want an SSD

Pros: It is solid. Lots of this box can be taken apart to increase ease of instillation of components. It has standoffs already on the tray, which helps a tad.

Cons: The board installs upside down. At the beginning it is like that is just a little bit of creative engineering, but as assembly gets going, it is obvious all the ergonomics and thought that has gone into the design of the Motherboard becomes apparent they are working directly against you.

But the big con is that the SSD location is completely inaccessible. There are 2 racks above it that have to be removed to get the SSD in, and once it was in and the racks PUT (dang profanity filter would not allow me to say what you do with screws) back in. I could not get any of the plugs in it. It just does not work. The holes in the side of the lower rack just are not wide enough to accommodate the power and data cables.

After 2 hours of trying to wrestle with the thing, I just attached the SSD with 1 screw in an upper rack. Not nearly a good solution but the best I could come up with.

For this price it should not only accommodate one SSD easily, but 2 or 3.

The rubber grip on the feet is too much. It is very difficult to slide the thing and it grabs so hard it tries to hop/vibrate which could be hard on components.

The plastic thing to apparently keep a monster heat sink in place just kept cutting me and scratching me. I eventually just removed the thing. I wish I had done that, the first thing.

Other Thoughts: My mom likes the case. She picked it out. But I wish I had not given her a choice when I made her machine. There are much easier cases to work with for a lot less money. The entire case seems to be designed with one goal in mind: get a big fan in there! They did that, but they made too many careless compromises to do it.

You do have to actually read the manual on this one. You have to remove the top to get the power supply in there which requires removing 6 screws and applying some force and sweating that you might break something.

All the screw holes are just barely close enough to get two pieces of metal together, the holes only overlap a small amount. Nothing really aligns correctly. And on mine the door thumb screws were very tight and painful on the finger to turn the entire way not just to start or finish.

For this one as long as you don't need an SSD or a long blue ray or other long optical drive, and you have the right sized board and preferably a modular power supply, things should not go too poorly.

4 out of 5 eggsClever compact design

Pros: This is one of the few computer cases where the PSU can be mounted the old fashioned way, at the top of the case where it acts as an exhaust fan. I covered the top fan hole with some black metal film tape so it's impervious to liquids/small objects and it looks great.

With the drive cage removed, there's still mounting points for a 2.5" SSD and a 3.5" HDD, plus plenty of room for a decent video card.

Cons: The LEDs are too bright, but they are easily replaceable (soldering is required).

Other Thoughts: This is a 5 star case, I just got one with a manufacturing defect and no response from SilverStone support, so minus 1 star. Whoever built the front panel broke a LED lens and instead of fixing it just covered it up with tons of hotmelt glue. Other than that, the quality is excellent. Rather than abuse Newegg's awesome return policy by returning the whole case for a tiny broken piece of plastic I just 3D printed a new lens, which turns out works even better than the original lens.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy to use. Perfect size

Pros: This was my first build and this case is great with the sides and top easy to remove, and the motherboard tray also removable. Plenty of room for a graphics card and heat sink. This case is well engineered, that is why it has been around for so many years... a true winner.

Cons: No cons.

5 out of 5 eggsWell designed, effective cooling

Pros: All metal, sturdy construction
The removable fan filters are great for maintenance
Cabling routing options well thought out
Top mounted PS with heat exhaust and filter ideal for fanless PS
MoBotray easy to take out / back in
Adjustable front fan speed (mechanical switch - two speeds) without additional fan control unit
Efficient cooling - looks like the airflow is good inside, especially if you remove the HDD tray or leave the center slots free.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I've chosen this case for a Micro ATX quiet build. So far everything is quiet and cool inside.
Assembling was easy including cable routing thanks to holes and hooks provided
I haven't mounted a DVD/BR drive but long ones won't fit - you will have to choose wisely.
Using a fanless PSU, SSDs, a fanless video card and a Noctua NH-D9L to cool the I5 CPU, everything within fairly acceptable temp readings and the combination very quiet.
The airflow is effective with the stock front fan which happens to be within my definition of 'quiet' - you have to put your ear to the air intake to hear it.

5 out of 5 eggsThe one case to rule them all

Pros: This case is truly amazing. It looks great and built awesome. I swear they thought of everything. Here are some of my most favorite features:

- A 212 EVO cooler fits perfectly. I especially like the CPU cooler support bracket built in to the case. It's very adjustable.
- Plenty of cable management options with zip tie areas.
- The washable filters are a nice touch. The one on top is magnetic, which makes me smile.
- I like the 2.5" drive mount holes on the bottom. I ended up removing the drive cage since I'm only running a single SSD. It's so clean looking without the cage.
- My 600W Cooler Master modular PS and my DVD burner fit without any issues.
- I didn't run into any sharp edges on the case.
- The paint seems pretty durable.
- The ginormous front fan moves plenty of air set on low and is practically silent.
- The power and HD lights in the front are not like looking into a fusion reactor.
- The overall design is very clean and elegant.
- The quality of the metal is good and fit and finish are great.

Cons: I suppose it's a bit of a fingerprint magnet. That's the only thing I could come up with.

Other Thoughts: I set up the 212 EVO to pull instead of push. Put it on the back side of the heatsink, and it lined up perfectly with the rear fan exhaust hole. There are literally no cables in between the front fan and the heatsink since the cable management is so awesome. This is the cleanest build I have ever done. I will keep this case forevah. You definitely want to take your time, plan it out, and tinker a bit. Read the manual (which is actually fairly decent) cover to cover before you start. Some things need to be taken apart in a certain order.

I bought it so I could re-purpose my old home VMWare Workstation server as my desktop PC. I grabbed some parts from my existing desktop (old Acer Q6600), and merged them with my server parts. The only 2 new items I purchased were this case and the 212 EVO cooler. Here's my frankenbuild:

- AMD Phenom II X6 T1055 CPU (re-used)
- 16 GB Mushkin Enhanced RAM (re-used)
- 1 TB Micron SSD (re-used)
- Cooler Master 212 EVO CPU cooler (new)
- AMD Radeon HD 6750 Video Card (re-used)
- Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS Sound Card (re-used)
- DVD burner (re-used)
- Cooler Master 600w modular power supply (re-used)
- Silverstone Temjin Case (new)
- Running Windows 10 Enterprise

3 out of 5 eggsDecent case overall

Pros: Nice simple design and good material.

Cons: Disk slot was too small to put in a dvd drive. My friend built his PC with me but he got a different case and both drives fit his but neither fit mine. When i finally got it in it bent it out of shape slightly and now all the screw holes are unaligned in the back so its even more of a pain to take it apart and put it back together. Was too eager to finally have my first built PC to send it back at the time so I stuck with it. I know this is a very minor quibble but the annoyance is amplified when you pay good money for something to avoid these things and they happen anyway.

Other Thoughts: If your dvd drive doesn't fit just install whatever you need on the drive with the dvd drive unmounted and take it out when done. Its not worth having a bent case over a thing you'll only use once or twice.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome case, get it while you can

Pros: This is an awesome case, just awesome. This is my first build and cable management was a breeze. I got many ideas from the temjin Tj08 owners forum online. Honestly, for my first case even I was surprised by my cable management. It looks really good. This is a compact, premium case with good airflow and several features to keep the inside nice and tidy. This case is extremely customizable. The size of this case was one of the major factors for me in purchasing it. If you are tired of large bulky cases, purchase this. You won't be disappointed.

Cons: It may be a bit hard to work with if you have larger hands. Make sure you detach the mobo tray to make your life easier. You really have to think about and plan your build and cable management to get it to work. Also, there are some small screws on the case, so make sure you don't strip them.

Other Thoughts: If you get this case to work it's amazing. I never want another case again. This will be my go to case if I ever need anything in the future.

4 out of 5 eggsQuality Case, Missing USB Adapter Cable

Pros: Well built, and solid for a small case. Mounting the PSU took a bit of work. But, once I figured out the workings of the case, installing most components was a breeze. The instruction manual does a good job of pointing out where everything goes as well.

It's slightly smaller and has much better airflow than the mATX case it replaced.

The included dust filters are a great plus, and should go a long way at keeping any system built with it, dust free.

Cons: The package was missing the USB 3.0 to 2.0 adapter. Which means with the current pre-USB 3 motherboard installed in it, it doesn't have working front USB ports.

This would be a 5 egg review if it weren't for the missing accessory.

Like others have mention, the 3.5in drive cage can cause issues with large tower coolers.

Other Thoughts: Could use a couple more SSD mounts on the back of the motherboard tray, or in the area's on the upper drive rack where there is extra space available.
