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.

BitFenix Pandora and Atlas Pictured

Here are the first pictures of BitFenix' two new additions to its premium case lineup, the Pandora tower, and the Atlas cube. Pandora, like the Phanteks Enthoo Mini XL, is a 'case' of mistaken form-factor, in that it's designed for much smaller motherboards, but has the room to match up to a bigger one. The Pandora is designed for mini-ITX motherboards, but at 160 mm x 418 mm x 459 mm (WxDxH), is about the size of a micro-ATX tower. It lacks 5.25-inch drive bays, but has room for two each of 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drives, a standard ATX PSU, and a ventilation system that includes two 120 mm front intakes, and two 120 mm rear exhausts. And yes, you can use them to latch on two 240 x 120 mm radiators.

The BitFenix Atlas, on the other hand, is a cubical case that's designed to compete with the likes of Corsair Carbide Air 540. It measures 383 mm x 443 mm x 541 mm (WxHxD), and is compartmentalized, much like Corsair's case. Its motherboard tray can seat E-ATX motherboards. There are no 5.25-inch drive bays, but a whopping ten 3.5-inch, and six 2.5-inch bays. Cooling system includes a staggering six 120 mm front intakes (can convert to four 140 mm), six 120 mm top exhausts (can convert to four 140 mm), a similar configuration at the bottom, and two 120 mm rear exhausts.

SilverStone Raven RV04 Chassis Detailed

Here are some of the first pictures of SilverStone's upcoming flagship chassis, the Raven RV04.
