    The Temjin TJ09 is the first SilverStone chassis designed with graphics card cooling as one of the priorities. To meet this challenge, a brand new mid-section air duct was created to bypass the hard drive cage, allowing the strategically placed 120mm to draw cool air from outside of the chassis and blow it directly onto the expansion slot area. CPU and hard drives are also cooled exclusively by 120mm fans to maximize airflow while reducing noise. Covered in styling reminiscent of beautiful chassis of years past, the TJ 09' s advanced structure is second in stiffness only to the unibody designed TJ07. If you have been waiting for a chassis with plenty of technical and aesthetic excellence worthy of an upgrade, then the TJ09 is the one..

    • 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

    Who cares? Performance over aesthetics. Besides, it looks to satisfy both.

    With these new GPUs coming out I think case makers will look into this as a selling point.
    Most new cases should have 1 front, 1 back, 2 side fans (1 blowing on CPU and the other on GPU esp. for SLI/Crossfire setup), and 1 top fan to exhaust out hot air.
    However, its sad to see cases with only 2 fans still (1 front and 1 back).
    I gotta say that my NZXT Nemesis Elite case is one of the best I have seen.
    It has 3 120mm fans (1 front, 1 back and 1 side).
    However, the side fan is positioned so that it hits both the GPU and CPU which keeps my case nice and kewl (thanks to some cable management as well).

    I also have a Logysis Dracula Case which is good.
    However that case gets much hotter since it has 2 120mm fans (1 front and 1 back) and an 80mm side fan which only hits the CPU.
    Hence the GPU area is much hotter (plus there is a lack of cable management as well in that case - 1st build if that is a reason lol).

    So I would look forward to seeing some interesting new designs hopefully.

    the board is upside down (meaning that the opening side is on the right). I have done one of these cases, none of the cables will reach to the mobo.

    most of the newer psu and using shorter cables...for the fact that there is about 4-6inches of cable require to plug your 20/24 pin power to the mobo. only psu are uses long cables are the antec psu, becuase of there newer cases are having the psu oppsite the the mobo connectors.

    Well nowadays newer psu are having removable cables to plug into the PSU. probably next time they would include long and short cables, for a price.

    Yep thats the case I have...
    I like the pre-modded cases, but I am looking into putting a blow hole in the top.
    The hottest any part of my system gets is 79F (Dont know what that is in C) and thats the CPU.
    Also a lil kewl feature it has is that you can change the LED in the front from 7 different colors.
    Its a lil thing but its pretty neat.

    The reason I like this case though isnt bc of looks or lil neat features.
    Its the fact that I cannot hear any of the fans at all when the computer is on.
    On top of that they circulate a lot of air.

    I dont rate my cases on looks, but how effective they are with cooling and airflow.

    Sorry to go off topic lol.

    SLB FTW!

    for a small, light, simple case...was was impressed for its cable managment ability...

    i'm more to the kinda of funky casing with cool cooling solutions like fans up to 120MM and above for the front and top or side. well at least cooling fans for back,front,side and top. All directions.

    I was looking at that case...
    The only thing was that I wanted a min. of 3 fans and that one has no fan blowing on the CPU and GPU.
    Plus I dont want to spend money on a case I will have to mod the window with (not comfortable doing that)

    I also found a really interesting case that had 3 fans (side, front, back) and the window was all mesh so air can easily flow in and out.
    Seemed like a good idea

    this is a nice case, but i dont like antecs weird fuctionality mubojumbo (such as the hard drive mounts)

    if you have a fan in every place, you will have 2x 120mm in front, 1x 120mm on side, 1x 120mm on back, and a nice 1x 200mm fan on top.

    I agree that that one is a nice case.
    Plenty of air flow, however, I am curious as to how quiet it is.

    I like the mesh concept too.
    How much is that case round, just out of curiosity.

    oh its quite, but cable managment is a bitch...being that its has a window. no where to tuck cables. but i guess you can tuch the fat 20/24 pin rail inside the 3.5in drive bays.

    i think it cost around $150?. that case looks like a black apple g5.

    btw, i really want to get a g5 case so i can use it as a PC case.

    I suggest you do the following:

    1. Tape some wires to the bottom and sides of the case so they are not dangling.
    2. Stick unused wires in empty bays
    3. Use ties to just wrap those suckers together.

    My cases all have somewhere to hide my wires (to a degree of course).
    Dont forget u might be able to hide wires behind the mobo tray or other side of the case.
    I unfort. couldnt in mine since it was toooooooo narrow.

    the super lan boy is pretty good on cable management. sadly that damn thermal take cyclo kinda made it ugly, but its fuctional...
