a box big enough to mount a PC inside then do something
with it that makes it stand out from a few hundred thousand
other designs. Now there's a challenge!
of companies have taken the challenge, and look around the
'Net and you'll soon realise that some have really gone
a step too far in search of that uniqueness that gets us
thrusting our hands into our pockets.
mean really, just how many people can actually want to own
a shiny purple and green case cast in the cheapest plastic
money can buy and that looks like a refugee from the Transformers
series? Obviously enough to warrant them making it but mostly
those who haven't experienced the joys of puberty yet at
many of us, the desire for a case that's different, unique,
even special, is still there, it's just the lengths we're
prepared to accept to achieve that are very different. We
don't want in-yer-face necessarily, we want discrete yet
classy, understated yet elegant......oh, and we want cheap
but expensive looking!
case I'm looking at today comes from a relative newcomer
to the PC market, being around only since 2003, yet despite
this their aggressive marketing and quality products have
elevated them to one of the best know names in the case
and peripherals sector. That company is SilverStone.
case in question, the Temjin TJ02, has a very unique way
of getting itself noticed, and it does it without gaudy
plastics, fancy lights or pointless functions, but more
on that in a moment.

nothing significant in the specs that jumps out at you.
The front fascia is aluminium while the body is 0.8mm steel.
It's moderately heavy at 9.2kg and the dimensions mark it
out as being quite low and quite wide. Whether these squat
dimensions will make it difficult to work in is something
I'll look at later.
