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 eggsSilverStone TJ08B-E

Pros: This case was able to accommodate all the components I installed. I removed most of the drive bays I didn't need, so there was ample room. Good choice for the price. I needed a DVRW as well. My H80 cooler fit perfect.

Cons: The case metal is really thin, and seams flimsy. If I had used the drive bays there would have been issues with space. Some of the drive bay parts were rusty. One of the 5.25 drive bay covers was bent, so I just used the other for a cover. I had to install plastic standoffs for the SSD drive because the power cables on the Corsair PS only had perpendicular connectors.

Other Thoughts: It would be nice to have a windowed model.

3 out of 5 eggsGood case, faulty audio jacks

Pros: This case is just about the absolute best you can get in MicroATX form factor. Despite its reasonably small size, it's very large and easy to work on the inside. It has plenty of room for routing cables behind the motherboard, with conveniently placed and well thought out cable tie locations. The construction is fairly sturdy, and the exterior is, from what I can tell, almost entirely metal. The front panel is easy to remove -- it has screws, not annoying plastic clips -- and the front ports and LEDs are attached to the case, not the front panel; you don't need to undo any of your cables to remove the front panel. Overall, a very well thought-out design that makes working in this case a very easy and enjoyable experience, even for a higher-end build.

Cons: The unfortunate thing is the side panels do scratch pretty easily. The stock 180mm fan was a bit noisy for my liking, but you can replace it with any 180 or 140mm fan. The case also has one crucial issue:

Faulty jack detection.

The front headphone jack constantly believes there's something plugged in for just a fraction of a second. In Windows this is fine because the Realtek driver waits for a period of time before muting the speakers, although I do periodically get muted speakers anyway, presumably because it thinks there's something plugged in for just that long. In Linux, this is a bigger issue because no such mechanism exists that I'm aware of, meaning I'm stuck having to disable auto-mute, which isn't ideal.

I emailed SilverStone support, who were helpful; I requested replacement jacks, which they sent without any hesitation. However, the replacements I received have the same issue. It should be noted that I am currently testing with another set of jacks (not the ones for this case), which are working fine; thus, it's not an issue with any of my other hardware. This is an unfortunate design failure which I would not expect in a premium case which is otherwise almost perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case

Pros: Simply an amazing mATX case, best I have seen hands down. Very good build quality and all pieces are put in an extremely good position for having a great looking build. Subtle yet elegant case that has a nice finished look to it.

Cooling performance is top notch, the Air Penetrator fan at 1000rpm is quiet and pushes a ton of air. Put a NoiseBlocker multiframe fan as the exhaust and my system is dead quiet along with extremely great temperatures.

Motherboard tray is removable! Makes it stupid easy to install CPU and CPU tower cooler. Also supports full 5.25 ODD's!! Slot loads are nice looking for only the cheap cheap price of twice the cost of a much more robust larger ODD.....

All intakes have fan filters that are easy to access to clean, plus with positive air pressure in case, will keep the dust at bay for months at a time.

Cons: 3.5 HDD cage can be problem for any HDD and any decent sized CPU tower cooler. If you have a AIC, then all is good. I use three SSD's so that issue does not have as much affect on me. Also could use another SSD mount on the bottom or move them to the back of the motherboard tray.

Other Thoughts: Even though the HDD cage can be a pain to use if a HDD and a tower cooler is uses, it is great at being a support for longer graphics cards along with the added benefit of easily hiding cables behind it for an extremely clean build with a little bit of effort.

4 out of 5 eggsfun case

Pros: have enjoyed owning this case, like the heat sink rest you can use reduces load on the MB. whole case is easy to take apart so that installation of parts is easy.

Cons: modular power supplies are a bit crapped next to the optical drive mountings.... the included bottom bracket adapter always feels loose

due to the psu venting out the top i thing a filter is needed there used a magenting 120 took care of the issue

Other Thoughts: I love the case, have long thought about adding water cooling to it, but never moved forward partially because of the odd fan/needed radiator in front.

5 out of 5 eggsWell designed and laid out

Pros: Well laid out, good instructions, decent build quality. I am still assembling the build but the screws all fit, and the directions are clear and easy to follow.

Cons: This is a big Micro Atx box. It is large enough to make it easy on my big hands. I am really looking forward to a new design for computers from the ground up. The basic layout has been the same for over 2 decades. It is time for a PC built like a stack of cell phones with fiber optic connections between the different layers. One to 4 compute layers, 1-4 storage layers and 1-4 video process or specialized compute layers.

Other Thoughts: I am building my 3rd PC since a 1995 disaster with windows 95 on 32 floppy disks. Each disk required 45 minutes of nursemaiding to get it added to the install. I never made it past the 2nd day. I put everything back into the box and returned it to Sxxs. I am calling that a build because nothing going now could be worse than that software install attempt. The second build was a gaming computer that was a pita in a different way. Stability was an issue because I bought the latest and greatest. This build should be both Windows 7 and a Hackintosh.

Other parts: GIGABYTE GA-Z97M-D3H, Intel 4460, Crucial Ballistix 2x4 G sport cl 9 @1.5v, CS650M, Evga GTX 960, Samsung SSd 850 Evo 256G, 1TB Seagate Barracuda,

5 out of 5 eggsBest Case Ever

Pros: +small but still roomy
+excellent design
+Aluminum/very lil plastic
+2 USB 3.0

Cons: +USB in front is kind of loose after a years worth of use

Other Thoughts: best case I've bought, and I've bought at least 7 cases before this one. The case is super roomy for how small it is, just be efficient with your cable layout. I will probably use this case for a long time

5 out of 5 eggsamazing airflow and design

Pros: Airflow: Just buy 1 exhaust fan to run at the same speed as the intake and you should achieve positive pressure and just amazing airflow. In one end, out the other, thats it.

Management: Plenty of space for cables.

Has a resting mount for the CPU fan.. Pritty cool.

Cons: My large graphics card doesnt really *rest* on the resting rubber piece they include. In fact its slightly bent. No big deal but not perfection.

My Noctua double CPU fan just pushing the space to the limits. I cant fit more than 1 hard drive in the hard drive rack. Just about 1 milimeter of room.

Other Thoughts: I just love this case.

3 out of 5 eggsQuality for the most part

Pros: Beautiful tower if you want a practical subdued look. Temps stay cool as stated. Was looking for a tower which would save me some space; this fits the job.

Cons: Fit is somewhat questionable(issue with the side panels specifically). The thumbscrews for the side panels are starting to strip. Bothers me since as I was originally planning on sticking to this case. Now considering an upgrade sometime down the road. I don't plan to open the case too often, but this might be of bigger concern for others who change parts frequently.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case for single GPU

Pros: This is a great single GPU gaming case. From my experience it has been virtually silent as long as you keep the front filter clean and run the fan on low. I've used a GTX 780 Ti and a GTX 980, and they both have ran very cool at their OOB settings. Likewise I am running a 4770K with the stock cooler, and it rarely tops 65 C. I've run a mild OC, but can't really tell any difference gaming at 1080p, so it is running stock clocks for now.

Cons: None, when used for the right purpose.

Other Thoughts: Plenty of room for long video cards and large CPU coolers. Very good build quality. I upgrade components quite often, and open the case very often. Some cases get sloppy after a short time, but this one is still just as tight as when I bought it a year ago.

2 out of 5 eggsdead LED after 31 days

Pros: 1) Nice front finish, looks sharp
2) Small
3) some what good layout
4) super quiet front fan

Cons: 1) low quality manufacturing, coming from Lian-Li case this was shocking

2) there is a good reason that on cases with motherboard mounted upside down the power supply is on the bottom - some cables might be short. I had to buy a 8" extension for the 8 pin aux power connector

3) After 31 days the power LED died. I thought LED light last forever?

4) Support does not answer the phone and mail box is full - support works as good as the their LEDs
