Conclusion and Thoughts

 

 

 

The Temjin TJ06 is one beautiful case with an excellent paint job.  The wind tunnel technology helps increase the cooling performance for burning hot CPUs.  The tower has plenty of space to work with and makes installation a breeze.  The tool-free design is definitely user friendly and makes installation fast and easy.  I finished installing everything in a matter of 15 minutes.  At first, I loved the case so much that I believed all enthusiasts should go out and get one.  After a bit of thinking, I realized that this case has faults that overclocking enthusiasts should be aware of.  The case calls for an inverted motherboard installation, which requires longer power cables.  The metal clips for the drives may not work with extra accessories that do not have the holes for installation.  The case has no exhaust fan to spit out the heat buildup.  The only existing fan for exhaust is for the wind tunnel.  Although removable, the wind tunnel duct can prevent proper watercooling installation.  The duct can get in the way of routed tubing.  However, the TJ06 is still a good case designed with cooling in mind.  For the noise freaks who want a silent system without hot CPUs, the TJ06 makes it possible.

Pros:

  • Beautiful full tower
  • Excellent paint job
  • Aluminum brushed front panel
  • Tool-free installation
  • Silent
  • Wind tunnel technology helps lower CPU temps
  • Relative low price
  • Very roomy to work with

Cons:

  • No case system exhaust fan
  • Causes system temps to rise
  • Not all power supplies will work
  • Very heavy
  • No removable motherboard tray
  • Front panel lock can get tedious when swapping out drives, or when you lose your key!
