After careful consideration and much regret I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com

SilverStone Temjin TJ10 Case Review

Introduction


Here is an interesting bit of trivia.  The SilverStone Cases tower cases are actually named after historical figures from the Khan family (Kublai and Temjin).  The Mongol Temjin, known throughout history as Genghis Khan was a warrior and ruler who brought all the nomadic tribes of Mongolia under the rule of himself and his family in a rigidly disciplined military state. Massacres of defeated populations and resultant terror were weapons he regularly used. 

The historical spelling was Temujin but that varies depending on the source. However in the SilverStone world Temjin is the name given to the Extended ATX tower chassis.  The Temjin line has been around for several years and has only improved since the beginning.

In this review we will be looking at the TJ10S from SilverStone that takes the classic styling of the TJ09 to the next level.  SilverStone claims that the TJ10 is identical to the TJ09 in structure and comes with several new details to set it apart.
Special Features
Premium all-aluminum chassis for extended ATX, ATX, SSI motherboards
120mm fan only design for ultimate performance & quietness
Unprecedented air duct dedicated for graphics card cooling
Advanced structural engineering with superior chassis stiffness
User friendly layout with multiple tool-less access
Classic SilverStone styling and finish
We will be taking an in-depth look into the TJ10 and focusing on the different aspects in a casemodders perspective.  This unique look goes beyond if a motherboard will actually fit and focus on things like case construction, cooling, and airflow.  We'll also look at the possible ways the case could be modified to either enhance what we find lacking or to include things that the designers might not have originally intended.
