SilverStone Temjin TJ12 Monstrosity Detailed

SilverStone Temjin TJ12 was the elephant in the room at its Computex booth. This jumbo cubical case is huge - perhaps bigger than Lian Li PC-D600. Unlike the PC-D600, and Corsair's smaller Carbide Air 540, the TJ12 isn't a vertically-partitioned two-compartment case. Its motherboard tray (supports ATX, E-ATX, XL-ATX, and HPTX) is oriented along the plane of its front panel, with rear-I/O facing upwards. Add-on cards can easily be as long and tall as they make them. At the bottom of the case, are four large fans, with a mesh, onto which you can latch on radiators of all shapes and sizes. The drive cage and PSU bay are suspended along a sloping panel, in a way that they don't obstruct anything near the motherboard tray. The actual "front-panel" is located at the top. So the TJ12 is essentially a case you put on your floor. and access its goods from the top.

The cable clutter is not a good way to showcase a chassis of that caliber

I did a double-take when I first saw the photos. The motherboard looks so small I thought they were putting a mini-ITX board in an ATX case, but it's actually an ATX board in this gigantic case.

Ever since the RV/FT 02 I've just had to shake my head at their case designs.

If the bottom plate can add Moria reservoir (9x120mm or 4x180mm fens) is the right solution for water cooling .Subject is supposedly only a concept and is not completed. Missing output for cables and one that is so ill-assembled elements have no idea about cable installation .(spaghetti)

I'm confused, bit-tech reported that TJ12 is Raven style monstrosity not Corsair Air esque.
Yep, but that was 3 years ago and that was a concept case. Whatever design they arrived at was gonna slide into that "TJ12" name. I'd venture to guess there were several even stranger "concepts" built between then and the final metal we're seeing today.

from outside looks like caselab but the inside looks tight

Looks like the girl could fit in the case

The outside of the case is very nice, but the amount of room inside begs for dual-motherboard (or PCIe backplane) support. Hell, that much space could hold two systems and 16 hot-swap bays accessible from the top.
