Over the years, our tendency has been to review mid- and full-tower enclosures bursting at their riveted seams with fans and features. The occasional small-form-factor case has caught our attention, but other dimensionally challenged boxes have largely...

A solid compromise between space and performance SILVERSTONE'S TEMJIN TJ08-E is a microATX chassis that strikes a nearly perfect balance between practicality and performance. The TJ08-E is fabricated primarily from steel, but its front panel is...

SilverStone has another superb mATX case in the TJ08-E, and I do believe it earns its “premium” branding. The case is made entirely out of metal aluminum and steel, so it would take some trying to break something on it. Since it's able to accommodate...

The results are continued on OpenBenchmarking.org. Generally the CPU and system temperature dropped 1~3C when the 180mm SilverStone fan was running at 1200RPM compared to 700RPM. Overall, the Temjin TJ08-E is another very competitive chassis from...

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to check out the PS07 mATX case from Silverstone. The PS07 was a rather unique case - it was from Silverstone's entry level 'Precision' series, but it was built around a chassis from their high end Temjin series....

We've waxed lyrical about SilverStone's penchant for flipping traditional case designs around with wanton abandon before, but never fear, the company's continuing to give us fuel for the fire with yet another non-standard design that's making waves in...

SilverStone has been around long enough to know good case design, and the TJ08-E is an exemplary showcase of that; though the 'E' stands for 'Evolution' and hints at marketing buzzwordery, this really is a thoughtful improvement on the now-classic TJ08...

Starting with the build quality of the SilverStone TJ08-E we have a chassis which impresses from the moment it is unboxed. The case feels solid and well built and the finish applied by SilverStone was flawless. A high quality fan is provided as...

Under the classy exterior of the TJ08-E turned out to be an overall good internal design. The main problems we had with the case were all related to the hardware limitations, and these can be avoided by choosing suitable hardware to go into the case....

We liked the concept of the SilverStone Temjin TJ08-E. It is a good option for users who want to build small yet powerful computers. It could cost a little less, but we think its price is fair.Strong PointsVented slot coversAir filter for the front...

We were not lucky enough to review the original Temjin TJ08 but photos of the chassis explain a lot about the design and why it was popular. The design was actually quite typical for a MicroATX case and featured a SECC steel chassis and two 120mm...

Quite frankly, we are amazed at what SilverStone has accomplished with the TJ08-E. A chassis of this size is hard to come by with features generally reserved for mid and full-size towers. The decision to reverse the motherboard layout was crucial to...

While vendors have been all too happy to send us larger enclosures (and we've been all too happy to receive them), our coverage of Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX cases has been a little lacking. That's why we're pleased today to present SilverStone's new...

Despite its modest size, the SilverStone Temjin TJ08-E is a surprisingly strong performing microATX case. The key to its success is the massive 18 cm Air Penetrator intake fan that draws in cool air from the exterior and blows it over the hard drive...

The Temjin TJ08-E was a pleasure to work with. After seeing the temperatures on our test build, we would definitely feel comfortable packing some high end components into this chassis. Size restrictions are common for small form factor builds, so we...
