System Builder Marathon: Day Two

ATX Case: SilverStone Temjin TJ02

The Temjin TJ02 diamond-etched faceplate reflects brilliantly

A case is about two things: practicality and "showoff-ery". SilverStone Technology has earned much respect on both fronts with its high-class, high-priced models, and its TJ02 certainly won't disappoint on the second front. Yes, this is a steel case with an aluminum face, but what a gorgeous face it is!

The system well on its way to completion

Loads of features that were also available in our low-cost case selection are found in this mid-budget choice, such as good ventilation, low noise and sturdy construction. Yet the typical mid-budget buyer simply won't settle for an ordinary-looking case, and the high tech finish is worth the extra price for many buyers.

The Temjin TJ02 sells for around $100.
