For a case company, it really takes something special to get me on the edge of my seat in anticipation for it to arrive. It seems I go through quite a few "plain black boxes with options" to get to choose the cases that make me all warm and fuzzy inside. Up to now I don't think any company has had me feeling this as much as SilverStone has done this last year, and even beyond that. While every case they produced over that time weren't exactly what I was looking for, I did end up enjoying my time using them and eventually they won me over in time anyways.
This year more specifically, I have gotten to see some really ingenious layout designs and overall concepts. For those who don't frequent my writings, please refer to the RV03, the FT03, or even the PS06. In each of the three, there are some similarities in layout, materials and most importantly, craftsmanship while still offering three very unique chassis'.
Today is no different. For those who had the pleasure of seeing or using some of the earlier Temjin Series chassis, I envy you. I have always wanted to acquire a Temjin chassis before I was writing reviews, but at that time even, they were cost preventive in me getting one. My personal favorite was the TJ07, and at a very close second were the squarer TJ09 and TJ10 models. One thing all of these cases share is that they were ahead of their time in case tech and very pleasing to the eyes. The biggest thing about the TJ07 I liked was the compartmentalized interior to break up the heat sources and offer their own ways of cooling each major compartment.
Taking styling cues from the TJ07 and using aluminum like its predecessors, that is really where the similarities stop. Let me draw you a mental picture really quick. Take the outside of the TJ07, thicken its structure and panels and completely reverse the layout of the case so that the window is now on the right side of the case just like the RV02. Keep the clockwise, 90 degree turned, motherboard orientation and make it fully removable. To the left is a full run of optical drive bays and it leaves the bottom of the chassis with a huge box of room for the hard drive bays and up to two power supplies.
Make this all black and throw in a very well placed window, and you got the basic idea of what we are about to get a really good and long look at. While all this is still fresh in your head, we should venture off into the exact specifications so you can get a much more detailed idea of how the latest Temjin Series chassis from SilverStone is laid out. Get comfortable, settle in and enjoy the SST-TJ11B-W - hopefully as much as I do!
