I actually had to go back to SilverStone's own pages to find the history of the original design concept of this case. I knew it existed as I had seen it many times looking around at their site over the past three years, but I never really took a deep look at the chassis. That is until now! No offense intended to SilverStone with this, but even with the chassis being originally released in 2006, the case is quite boring and standard by today's "must have's" in cases. The basic effort then was to deliver a Micro-ATX chassis that offered four expansion slots, a removable motherboard tray, a couple of fans; but aside from that, you only got a face covering of aluminum on the bezel and an unfinished steel interior.
Aesthetically the chassis hasn't changed that much on the outside; by this I mean that even the new version is made of steel with an aluminum facing that has a large mesh panel to allow the chassis to breathe. A similar configuration is found in the latest sample, but even here, things have been arranged with more attention paid to what is almost in an order of importance for use. Inside is where things really get rearranged! SilverStone packs quite a few tricks of the trade into this small chassis and offers something very innovative, and is something I have seen nowhere else on the market, yet. I'm sure this idea will be the "inspiration" for others to follow suit with this really ingenious solution.
I don't want to give too much of what the Evolution has in store for you to see and admire about this chassis. SilverStone had five years and from the original configuration, a ton of room for improvement! I think ample time has been there, and from what I wrapped my mind around during the build process SilverStone went above and beyond my expectations, and as long as you follow a couple of simple suggestions about specific sizes of certain components, I am pretty sure you will be just as excited about the Temjin TJ08-Evolution Micro-ATX tower chassis as I am.
Grab a beverage and get comfortable, as you are about to see plenty of innovative solutions to what makes smaller chassis' fail, and one simple solution that just makes you think "why hasn't this been done by now?". I say it's enough with the chatter; let's get on with the show!
