SilverStone is welcome to present a the new flagship tower case SST-TJ11B-W that was finally released last weekend and will be available mid-January next year.
SST-TJ11, Temjin series flagship, is the first extended ATX and XL ATX tower chassis to have vertical wind tunnel design. Graphic cards are mounted vertically inside chassis with intake fans located at the bottom and exhaust fan at the top to increase flow pressure and enhance heat dissipation efficiency.
TJ11 is fully made of aluminum, has the following dimensions 224x657x642mm and supports SSI-CEB, XL-ATX/ATX/MicroATX motherboards. The central compartment is equipped with two 180mm Penetrator series fans (700/1200rpm, 18/34dB) grabbing cold air straight outside. The bottom case part has two armor-grilled 120mm intake fans (1200rpm, 19dB fan) of Penetrator series as well. The top exhaust fan was inherited from TJ-09 design — 120mm fan(900rpm, 18dB). Again, the bottom compartment support quad radiator placement, but wait, there is more, it can even fit 4×140 rad, like Black Ice® GT Xtreme 560!
TJ11 offers nine 5.25-inch bays, six 3.5-inch bays grouped in two HDD cages located at the bottom of the case and providing drive hot swap features and finally, three 2.5-inch drive installation bays. In addition, nine PCI expansion slots and support for up-to 310mm long cards enables the case to easily have Quad SLI/Crossfire graphics card arrangement. Since the case supports dual ATX power supply mounting, the front panels features dual-power switch. The front panel has two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 connectors as well as mic and headphones inputs.
Prices for TJ11 in Europe are set at approximately 450 EURO (w/o VAT) which is about $600 (edit: “Sweet pajamas!”) The case should be available by the end of January 2011.
