MODTHEBOX would like to thank Warren and Tony from SilverStone Technology for sending the SilverStone SST-TJ01 Temjin Mid-Tower Case and SilverStone SST-FP52 Eudemon Temperature Monitor for review.

SilverStone Technology

Introduction:

Aluminum case enclosures have made a huge impact with computer enthusiasts due to the nature of their aesthetic design and cooling properties. Lian Li and Cooler Master are two well known companies who have successfully marketed the aluminum chassis design in North America. While both companies continue to revise their product lines, many consumers are taking notice of new comer SilverStone Technology. SilverStone Technology based out of Ontario, California is a company that specializes in unique ID and mechanical design for all kinds of aluminum alloy products. The company has recently released a series budget style aluminum cases and add-on case accessories. Today in the MTB Labs, we will be evaluating the SST-TJ01 Temjin Mid-Tower Case and SilverStone SST-FP52 Eudemon Temperature Monitor.

Specifications:

The SST-TJ01 Mid-Tower is one of several different units available on the SilverStone Technology website but is marketed under the Temjin brand name. The SST-FP52 Eudemon Temperature Monitor is the first in a series of add-on modules designed specifically as for the Silverstone product line. Here are some specifications taken directly from the SilverStone Technology website:

The SilverStone SST-TJ01 Temjin Mid-Tower Case arrived in boxed cardboard packaging with a black identification labeling on the sides. The case was sealed in protected plastic with 2 pieces of polystyrene located on both sides of the unit. The SST-TJ01 is made from 6mm thick steel and includes a milled front aluminum bezel with a swing away door. The case measures approximately 193mm (W) x 430mm (H) x 483mm (D) and weighs 7.3kg, which is slightly heavier than other steel based mid-tower cases. The extra weight for this particular product is due to the stylish extruded aluminum front bezel. On one side of the case is a black anodized piece of aluminum that has been added for contrast, as well as a few openings at the bottom to allow air to be drawn into the chassis.

Across the top right of the door is the Silverstone logo which matches the case perfectly. As an alternative, the door can be mounted on the opposite side, so it swings out from the left instead of the right. The only issue that consumers should note is that the logo itself would have to be carefully pulled off and re-applied the other way. Consumers can also remove the door completely in order to install add-on devices which have knobs that protrude away from the front bezel.
