Silverstone Temjin TJ09: The Pretty Boy

Silverstone's TJ09 case, in silver, was also included in our last gaming case roundup. It is an excellent choice for those who want to have it all: excellent design and smart case engineering.

The Temjin TJ09 is quite massive in appearance and is based on an aluminum frame, which results in a hefty $289 price tag. For that price you will receive a well-finished computer case with lots of top-mounted front I/O ports (two USB 2.0, Firewire, audio and mic). The case accommodates the power supply at the bottom and has plenty of space with four 5.25" drive bays and room for six internal 3.5" devices.

The hard drive cage and the motherboard tray are removable for flexibility. Two 120 mm fans take care of removing hot air in the top section of the case, another 120 mm fan is mounted in the back, and a third ventilates the hard drive and the graphics card(s).
