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.

    Case Mods

    It is not very often that you come across a case that needs no modifications at all.  Usually you can find a fan placement that is very restrictive or poor cold air ventilation but with the TJ10 we are left no credible things to suggest.

    We might have suggested a window but SilverStone has that covered with a pre-mod variant of the TJ10 with a plain square window.  We of course would strongly suggest that you "wiindow'ize" your case by hand.
    Cold air intake has always been a problem area in cases and SilverStone solved this by moving the intake to the middle of the case between the HDDs. and motherboard.

    The case is also adequately reinforced and feels very solid especially for a case made entirely from Aluminum.  So what else is there to do?  Well watercooling comes to mind and given the extreme size of this case let's go all out.

    The dual fan placement at the top of the case is a perfect place for our dual fan radiator.  A small bracket will have to be fabricated to hold the radiator in place but no other
    A bayres will handle water storage which leaves pump placement.  Normally we would suggest removing one of the HDD cages and place the pump there however there is plenty of room between the PSU and internal fan assembly.  Just route your hoses and you're done.
