The past month has seen the appearance of a healthy number of computer cases of different sizes and shapes, so it is no real shock to find out that SilverStone has also enacted this type of maneuver.
When creating a so-called new product, a company can choose to borrow elements form items it created before.
Granted, this is a given, knowing that there is a set of features that each product type absolutely must be outfitted with.
In other words, a PC case much have drive bays, expansion slots, room for the PSU and motherboard, etc., meaning that companies like SilverStone have leeway in fairly few things, such as deciding how the layout can diverge from the standard one.
In this instance, this outfit did more than borrow the design decision of a previously-existing product.
Taking the Temjin TJ08 PC case, which was released back in 2006, SilverStone reimagined it into the Temjin TJ08-E (Evolution).
It supports CPU coolers with height of up to 165 mm, while graphics boards can have PCBs of up to 13.25 inches in length.
Micro ATX, mini-DT and mini-ITX are the mainboard from factors that will fit here, since the whole thing measures 210 (W) x 374 (H) x 385 (D) mm.
That said, there are a couple of exposed 5.25-inch drive bays, as well as four 3.5-inch HDD/SSD bays on the inside, plus one 2.5-inch tray.
Additionally, a front 180 mm fan (with a speed of 700 to 1,200 RPM) is set at the front of the casing.
Finally, SilverStone went for a removable motherboard tray and an I/O panel with two USB 3.0 ports and two audio ports.
All in all, the newcomer weighs 5.3 kilograms, being made of steel, is coated black on both the inside and outside and, priced at $1,05.99, has already been listed
