With the lack of many sleek looking EATX cases we were delighted when the SilverStone Temjin TJ09 had entered our place. To test this chassis we had installed a Tyan Tomcat i5000XT S2696 with dual quad-core processors and eight sticks of FB-DIMM. We had also slapped in four Seagate SATA hard drives, an ATI Radeon X1950PRO, and other goodies. Below is a complete listing.
|Processor:||2 x Intel Xeon E5320 Quad-Core|
|Motherboard:||Tyan Tempest i5000XT S2696|
|Memory:||8 x 512MB Kingston FB-DIMM DDR2-533|
|Graphics Card:||ATI Radeon X1950PRO 256MB|
|Hard Drives:||4 x Seagate SATA 7200RPM|
|Optical Drives:||Sony DVD-RW
|Cooling:||2 x Dynatron LGA-771 Heatsinks|
|Case:||SilverStone Temjin TJ09 EATX|
|Power Supply:||Tagan TurboJet 1100W|
|Operating System:||Fedora Core 6|
On top of the two 120mm fans included with the SilverStone Temjin TJ09, we had only installed an extra 120mm fan in the top of the case for some extra airflow due to the heat of the Clovertowns as well as the AMB chips on the FB-DIMM memory. With that said, we had run into no thermal issues with the TJ09 chassis. The installation process was a breeze and we had run into no problems though one complaint with the chassis would be the mire management abilities with the unique mid-section air duct causes a lot of extra wire routing. Once installing everything we still had loved the case as much as when it had first arrived.
