The excitement brought on by the SilverStone Temjin TJ09 was no one-night stand as we continue to be impressed with its features, internal layout, and build quality. The only possible shortcomings with this case was only six internal 3.5" HDD bays (it would have been ideal to have eight) and the extra wire management challenges presented due to the mid-section air duct. However, that mid-section air duct is certainly an innovative and beneficial improvement especially if running multiple GPUs. It is also worth pointing out that the Maximum PC magazine selected the SilverStone Temjin TJ09 for their 2006 Dream Machine. We are so confident in this chassis that it is safe for us to say that this is the best ATX chassis we have seen in 2006, and it will likely remain that way for a while unless some serious competition is introduced next month at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas. While the price tag for the TJ09 is nearly $300 USD, if you are serious about computing this case is without a doubt worth the purchase. The SilverStone engineers did an unbelievable job with the TJ09, which leaves us only to wonder what they can possibly offer in the SilverStone Temjin TJ10.
