After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased 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/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

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

    Case Internals

    Despite the extreme size of the TJ10 when you look at the inside you'd be amazed at how much space is taken up by the internal venting and HDD trays.  However looks can be deceiving.

    The Temjin series is what they call Extended ATX Design meaning you can install any number of "Large" motherboards including the Standard and Micro ATX designs.  So while the photos make it appear to be rather small there is more than enough room for all your gear, and then some.
    One feature that many of us system builders have missed over the years is a removable motherboard tray, truth be told it is hardly a requirement these days but does make the installation and upgrade a snap.
    The motherboard tray is built from a medium stock aluminum and for reinforcement you'll find 2 steel angle brackets at the top and bottom.  Even removed the motherboard tray still feels solid. 
    The tray is held into place with 5 thumb screws and slides along a plastic lined track.  A careful observer will have noticed the heavy aluminum used to support the back corners of the TJ10.  Now what you wouldn't immediately realize is that those heavy supports actually block access to the card retention screws.

    That is unless there were holes to fit a screwdriver thru. wink smile
