A few products immediately caught my attention; the first being the latest entry in the Temjin series, the TJ11.
When I walked up to this case, the side panel had already been removed. The first thing I noticed was the six 3.5” hot-swap capable bays, along with support for three 2.5” drives. There are nine 5.25” external drive bays as well. The second picture is a close-up of the dual SilverStone AP181 180mm fans sitting in the bottom which provide a big boost to internal airflow. With the included top 120mm exhaust and dual bottom 120mm AP121 fans, venting shouldn’t be an issue at all.
The feature that I have showcased in the bottom left picture is by far the simplest innovation, but one that struck me as something everyone should be doing. The horizontal openings above the mesh on the side panel line up with the fan filters. This allows you to remove and clean the filters without having to remove the panel and open the case.
It is certainly a beast at 224 mm (W) x 642 mm (H) x 657 mm (D), but I like the open feel to it as well. The case has two USB 3.0 jacks on the top left side and two USB 2.0 on the right side along with the usual audio jacks. The TJ11 is also heavy clocking in at 17.4kg or 38.3 lbs and that’s without any hardware installed. It might have something to do with the fact they used a 2.00mm aluminum body.
Next we will take a look at the RV03.
