SilverStone Temjin TJ08-E Evolution

Way back in 2006 I tested out the SilverStone TJ08, which ended up being a very nice compact enclosure and right on-par with SilverStone's other beautiful Temjin cases. More than a half-decade has passed and now SilverStone is out with the TJ08-E, which evolves the chassis by providing improved cooling performance and other minor refinements.

The SilverStone TJ08-E (the "-E" post-fix is short for Evolution) evolves the cooling performance by moving from a dual 120mm fan configuration to using a single 180mm SilverStone "Air Penetrator" fan. Switching to this fan is what should lead to positive-pressure cooling and better performance, quietness, and dust prevention. Not everything has been altered but there is still a removable micro-ATX motherboard tray, CPU back-plate cutout, and other features as the TJ08-E is reviewed here at Phoronix.

Specifications:

- 2 x 5.25-inch, 1 x 3.5-inch external drive bays
- 4 x 3.5-inch, 1 x 2.5-inch internal drive bays
- 1 x 180mm AP181 in-take fan (18/34 dBA, 700/1200RPM)
- 4 x PCI / expansion slots
- 5.3 kilogram net weight
- 210 x 375 x 385 mm dimensions
- Aluminum front panel, steel body
- Micro ATX, DTX, Mini-ITX compatibility

Features:

- Includes one 180mm Air Penetrator fan for positive pressure cooling
- Removable motherboard tray and top panel
- Quick access filters to prevent dust buildup
- Convenient wire and cable routing pathways
- Adjustable holder for large CPU coolers
- Motherboard back plate opening behind CPU area for quick cooler assembly
- Impressive storage capacity up to five 3.5" hard drives and one 2.5" drive

The SilverStone TJ08-E was kindly sent over to Phoronix by SilverStone Technology as a review sample. Included with the micro-ATX chassis was the usual mounting hardware, a few zip-ties for cable management, SilverStone's usually well-written user's manual, and a USB 2.0/3.0 header adapter.
