Does anybody have any experience with the SILVERSTONE TJ09-B Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
It's pricey, but looks very high quality.

There's a Silver Version ... I'm assuming it's just a black vs Silver thing?

The black and silver are exactly the same, you can even get either one with a window if that's your sort of thing. Alas I don't actually have any experience using one; it's just a bit too expensive for a college student to afford. :cry:

It was at the top of my list when I was shopping for a new computer...I decided not to spend $300 on a case though.

I would buy this case, once you do you will never need another case again. Plenty of room awsome fan setup. I have the TJ03 and I love it.


Same case as the silver one at newegg - and newgg is offering free shipping (case this size is normally $20+ shipping)

$257 vs $259 ... don't see much difference?

Just get either an antec p182 or p190 (p190 isn't quite out yet, but it will be out soon, just google it), those antecs have just about all the features the silverstone does and more, not to mention the p190 comes with a dual psu setup for a total of 1200w and is bigger than the current p182, has more fans and is still almost completely silent


I've seen the P180 series - don't like the door with plastic hinges. Dual PSU's for me is about as helpful as tits on a bore hog.

LMFAO, I just looked at the Antec P182 Gun Metal Black 0.8mm, 1 intake 120mm with 2 120mm exaust fans lmao @ airflow. The front 120mm has to get its fresh air from the tiny little holes in the front, no way are the little hole gonna be able to keep up with a 90cfm to 110 cfm fan.

Yeah the TJ-09 is definately a nice looking case. If you want to watercool, there are much better options, such as the TJ-07.

I don't want to water cool - air is good with me.

This case was reviewed here at THG: Holiday Buyers' Guide 2006 - Silverstone Temjin TJ09: The Pretty Boy

You can see from the photo that it's a substantial case ...
and the model isn't bad either ...

I have the TJ09 and find it's worth the price. Here in Denmark it costs about US$350 including VAT and shipping.

I wasn't going to say anything - but ... this case is awesome! I just got it today, and inspected it. It is all anyone ever said positive about it.

And it is huge! The shipping box was half my height. I had my 105 lb wife sit on the case - no problems. Now, I haven't built with it yet, so I can't say how the "sound" is, but this looks like a case to last a lifetime.

Yes, I looked at the Antec 900 and the 180/182 (in person) - but this case is outstanding. I spent $259 - and am damn glad I bought it!

(Seems Newegg is sold out - such are deals) :)
