The following Intel Sandy Bridge hardware was installed inside the SilverStone Temjin TJ08-E chassis:

The setup process was very straightforward and easy for the Intel micro-ATX motherboard and the other components. There were no issues experienced during the installation process and was smooth just like my experiences with many other SilverStone enclosures. The cable management possibilities for this compact case are also sufficient as are the expansion possibilities.

With this Intel Core i5 setup using the integrated Sandy Bridge graphics the overall noise level was quite respectable with the 180mm Air Penetrator fan. On the side of the chassis is a switch for letting the fan operate in its low-power 700RPM / 18dBA level or at 1200RPM / 34dBA. Even with the higher noise level the system's noise level was not anything to complain about. As far as the thermal performance, here are some benchmarks on OpenBenchmarking.org of running many different workloads from the Core i5 2400S when running the system at both fan levels. All other system characteristics remained the same along with the ambient room temperature.
