My System Specs

Default SilverStone TJ-11


SilverStone Technology Co., Ltd - Designing Inspiration

I've been looking for a decent full-tower case and this comes pretty close. Other than those silly "see-through air vents" for the middle 180mm fans, I quite like it. If they had only put the same mesh as the bottom compartment on them, then it might have just been perfect ;)

It can apparently fit a HWLabs SR-1 560 in the bottom (somehow?) but I guess you'd have to limit your hard drives to the 5.25" bays. Not sure if it has mounting holes already down there or not either.

Might consider it for my LGA2011 build...since my FT01 is pretty cramped and I'm starting to dislike having my SR1 360 hanging off the back.

Unfortunately it has a list price of $599 though

Its nice but i have few things i would change:

- Get rid of the HDD bays on the bottom and move them on the top (or at least have the option of moving them inside the 5.25 bays)
- Do you really need all of the 5.25 bays? 5 the most. They could fit an intake fan instead.

Is there an exhaust on top?

Personally I think it is extremely ugly. Not very Temjin like at all. There is no way in my opinion that this is an improvement over the TJ07..

You can get a Little Devil PC-V10 for that price. And there is NO way a TJ11 comes anywhere near as good as a Little Devil.

It's $599 on NCIX: NCIX.com - Buy Silverstone Temjin TJ11B-W Aluminum E-ATX Case 9X5.25 6X3.5 Hot-Swap 2X2.5 No PS Black W/ Window - Silverstone Technology - TJ11B-W - in Canada

All aluminum construction isn't cheap anymore these days...

Those Little Devil cases are interesting, but I don't find them too appealing. Too square for my tastes.

I stll like the TJ-07 the most for the Temjin series. It's the most simple, minimalistic, and clean looking out of all of them (in my opinion), and that is something I like. Im not a fan of all those "plastic like front bezels". Keep it clean. Keep it simple. JM2C
