Final Thoughts

In my opinion, SilverStone took a huge chance with quite a few design changes, not only for this Temjin, but things I haven't seen all in one chassis of theirs ever before. This is an instance where you feel the chassis is more of an orchestra of players all coming together for that note that runs chills up your arm rather than listening to the guy on the corner beat on a bucket with sticks.

It is more of the ability of all of the components to do what they are designed to do and they all play their parts well, giving you not only a pleasurable building experience with the TJ04-Evolution, but the finished product is great to look at and it leaves you with enough options to make this chassis unique and all your own.

Issues with the TJ0-E are... well, there weren't any! As sad as that is, because I tend to find even the smallest issues and bring them forward and with the TJ04-E I am sad that I have nothing to pick on them for. On the opposite side of that coin, it just goes to show how well thought out the redesign of this Temjin is. SilverStone really did their homework with the TJ04-E and I just can't say it enough, I really like it!

The positive pressure design had me skeptical with the fan acting as the intake where it was pointing into the hard drive heat sink first, the split around it to fill the case with fresh air. Even here my doubts were proven wrong as I got better than average temperatures during testing for a chassis with silent fans like this case offers. It really seems at every turn in the TJ04-Evolution SilverStone was already there and left you a note to explain what they did before you have even figured out what it was they did there.

For all of the features, design changes, new implementations and all around pleasure to use, I feel the TJ04-Evolution is justly priced. I may be missing a hard drive dock, but besides that I can't think of anything many other $150 mid-tower will offer that this case doesn't have. Even for those with thoughts of a workstation or more of a server build have enough room to really go wild as far as typical motherboard fit in a mid-tower and the fact that you can stuff up to fourteen hard drives and a total of six fans, the odds only get better that this case is the obvious solution for anyone with enough funds to get one delivered to their door. This sleek and sexy, simplistic exterior will make its way into any room of the house very easily, as it is not only one of the most unusual interior layouts I have seen, but it's just so pleasing to look at too.
