SilverStone’s New Cases with Front-Panel USB 3.0

Big ideas are found in small packages in two new SilverStone cases.  First up are improvements to its classic TJ08 Micro-ATX Mini-Tower, the new TJ08E adding a 180mm intake fan with slide-out dust filter, magnetic top-panel dust filer, and the front-panel USB 3.0 connector initially introduced on motherboards last summer.

A pre-production design was also on display that’s designed to make your PC integrate better with office furniture.  Borrowing the cooling path from SilverStone’s full-sized Fortress 2, this small-footprint Micro ATX design is similar in size to a personal-sized paper shredder.

SilverStone also has a solution for those who would like to use the new front-panel ports with older ports, in the form of an adapter that reduces the interface to USB 2.0’s nine-pins

    I...cant...believe...they...are selling a trash can with fans as a case. It might be modern, it might be aesthetically pleasing to those who paint their houses with cow manure, but I would never buy that case. Why cant they just be normal for once! :P

    To be honest my trash can actually looks much better than this case. I wouldn't even use this pos as a trash can.
