    silverstone tj05 temjin - good case? + PSU recommendations.

    I currently have a VM3000A case(the skull one). However, I have noticed that with all the hardware I have(see below), it is getting a bit crowded, what with 2 optical, 3 hdds etc and all the cabling(suffice to say it doesn't leave much room to be able to route the cable anywhere).

    I was thinking of getting the silverstone tj05 temjin case and a new PSU as well(possibly a modular one).

    At the moment, my 3 hard drives are sitting with about a 1mm gap between them as they are in adjoining bays, moving 1 to a diff bay makes the airflow even worse and I don't get much airflow through the room so need as good cooling(air) as I can get.

    2 questions:

    1: Is this a good case(got a good review in custom pc) but wondered if anyone had experience with one of these.

    2: I'm after a good(by that I mean high quality) PSU like something from Tagan, are modular PSU's all their cracked up to be?

    Any Suggestions?

    I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.

    Thats a pretty damn fine case in my opinion (though I don't own one) looks really well designed. Certainly in my top 10 of cases.

    Some cases will not take modular PSU's, the V-1000 as an example.

    Got the silverstone TJ-04 myself, guess they're quite similar

    Nice case, well built, no sharp edges. Only problem with the silverstones is front air intake. Don't know what its like on the 05 but on the 04 its just a slot at the bottom. Doesn't let much air in

    Let me know how your case is.

    Ive had my TJ05 for 6 months now. Pretty nice case, lots of room, and great airflow, also looks gorgeous. Only negative points for me are, the front swing panel is a little flimsy, as is the catch for the panel, and it's heavy as hell, especially with a dual heatercore and god knows what else.

    As for PSU, id get a nice OCZ Powerstream, Tagan or Enermax.
