SilverStone Temjin TJ04-E
ATX Tower Case
Street Price

Last year SilverStone released an interesting microATX tower, the Temjin TJ08-E. The "E" stands for "evolution," though it might have been more apt to use the suffix "R" for "revolution" as its design was vastly different from previous members of the Temjin line and most microATX cases in general. It featured an upside-down motherboard orientation, a massive 18 cm front intake fan, and almost everything inside the case was easily removable, allowing SilverStone to make it surprisingly compact.

The box.

We expected the ATX-sized Temjin TJ04-E would bear a close resemblance to the TJ08-E but there aren't many commonalties aside from the classic SilverStone look. The TJ04-E is truer to the "evolution" moniker, sporting a more conservative design that doesn't veer as far from other quality ATX towers. With a street price of US$150, it is more affordable than previous members of the Temjin line, but admittedly, its predecessors were massive all-aluminum affairs touting luxurious price-tags.

The Temjin TJ04-E.

The TJ04-E is a more modest offering, only 48.9 cm (19.3 inches) tall with a total volume of 51.2 L. It's mainly comprised of steel rather than aluminum, though being a SilverStone case, there is the usual understated, handsome aluminum facia. It uses traditional 12 cm fans, the motherboard is installed right-side up, and with the exception of a removable drive cage, the TJ04-E isn't any more modular than a typical case.


The TJ04-E ships with the obligatory manual, screws, and zip-ties (not pictured above), an internal USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 adapter and some hard drive accessories. Included are a pair of large, passive heatsinks that can be attached to the hard drives, and a couple of SATA power expanders that allows users to run devices off a single connector. The TJ04-E's main focus seems to center around storage.
