    SilverStone TJ06 Computer Case Review


    (Page 1 of 6 )

    There are a lot of things to consider when purchasing a computer case. Does it look good? Is it easy to install all the working parts? And--very important for overclockers--will it help you keep your system cool? Memphist0 checks out SilverStone's latest case. Do the Wind Tunnel and separate cooling zones get the job done? Read on.

    SilverStone TJ06 Review


     
    There are so many cases to choose from how, how do you pick one? Overall PC cases have improved their looks over the last several years. Consumers no longer have to settle for plain beige cases, although they still make beige cases if that's what floats your boat. The problem with the variety of cases available is, how does the consumer know which ones are good and which ones are a polished turd? In the short time since its founding in 2003, SilverStone has quickly become known as a reputable enclosure manufacturer. The SilverStone TJ06 looks set to continue their tradition while expanding their catalog of cases. It's available in black or silver with an aluminum front panel and something they call Wind Tunnel cooling.

    One of the most appealing characteristics of the SilverStone TJ06, besides its looks, is its BTX style cooling. Several months ago Intel announced that it would be abandoning the ATX form factor and moving to the next generation form factor, BTX. BTX is not just one letter higher than ATX. It stands for Balanced Technology eXtended. The design calls for the processor to have cool air blown directly upon it. BTX also divides the PC into cooling zones with the intention of creating a more efficient cooling scheme. While the SilverStone TJ06 aims to provide a similar design to BTX with its cooling zones, it still uses ATX motherboards, so it isn't exactly a BTX case. With that said, it should be interesting to see how well the TJ06 keeps a system cooled compared to a more traditional styled case.

    So what do you look for in a case? Style? Size? Cost? Cooling? Or all of the above? Let's see how the SilverStone TJ06 stacks up.
