SilverStone Temjin TJ04-E Evolution Case Review

To test the thermal performance of the Silverstone TJ04-E we loaded our test system for 15 minutes using Prime95 and Furmark and recorded the maximum temperatures reached using CPUID Hardware Monitor.  We then restarted the system and left it for 15 minutes before recording idle temperatures.  Room temperature was maintained at 19 degrees C for the duration of our tests.

We are then going to try a stress test, when loading the 3770k with 1.3 volts. Not really realistic under most ‘real world’ situations.

We were reasonably happy with the thermal performance of the SilverStone TJ04-E.  When overclocked, the CPU load temperatures are very high but this is a consequence of overclocking the i7-3770K to this level with such high voltage.

To test the noise performance of the case we placed our digital dBA meter 1m from the front of the case and replaced the Radeon HD 6950 with a HD 5550 Silence.  We also momentarily detached our CPU cooler’s fans so we were only taking the noise into account from the case fans.

The noise level generated by these fans was below the 30 dBA minimum sensitivity level of our noise level meter.  They were barely audible in a quiet room so this case is ideal if you’re looking to build a quiet system.

Meshify C uses a new front panel that is all mesh (hence the model name) along with the new tempered glass panel and a handful of other changes.

    I have the older version of this case and I think a few changes are worth making. That said, I think they could have done a little more to make it tool less and perhaps adapt the front bay area to slide in and out with a single screw. Lian Li do this and its simple. one screw, easily accessable by finger. remove. slide out. back in again.

    It is rather expensive in the UK< I think in the USA it would work out around £85 which seems more reasonable. One of the joys of living in the UK. so I hear.

    I wish more of these companies would put a little handle on the top of the case to move around, makes life so much easier. WOuld have worked well with this case.
