They can both be had for about $200... any opinions on which is better?

I need some better ventilation than my P180 is offering. Like side vents/fans.

Are the TJ10 and TJ09 comparable?

I am a huge fan of Silverstone cases, the TJ07 is the best case I have ever owned.

if i was going for a silverstone case id get the 07. its a beast, and the best one imo. at least the best for watercooling and the sort.

What did you do about the amount of expansion slots and having tri-sli? Did you have to modify the case for the bottom dual-slot card?

Thank you,

I am a huge fan of Silverstone cases.

I agree with that. I'm loving my TJ-10.

My TJ-09W rocks! perfect for water cooling, I was able to mount my radiator inside of the case and keep everything very clean and accessible without modifying anything permanently. I just removed the two plastic fan brackets inside the top of the case.

I want a Cooler Master ATCS 840, but first I need a home for my Stacker 830. I have no one to offload it on. Maybe I'll go back to my plan to make it a HTPC. ::D:

Put it on a raft and send it east!

I'm moving to a TJ10-B myself. Clear side panels and LEDs etc aren't my thing. I've got the below case incoming.

My Antec P180B is a handsome case and quiet. However I've never been a fan of its cable management. Attempting to do something like Tri-SLi in it would be a real adventure.

This is going to be my last build for a while. I may get some DX11 cards when they hit and other than that, I am holding.

So if I were spending my own cash, I'd grab one of the SilverStones.

To be honest, both cases are fantastic. I've had them in the past myself and you will be happy which ever way you go. I'm just an upgrade junkie and don't tend to keep stuff to long.

830 has plenty of Air. BUT make sure you use quiet components due to all the mesh. My 8800GTX is a little noisey in summer, so my 830 sits about 2m from me. ::o: Near Beagles PC (She can't hear it over her 9800GT).

My wife has the TJ-09 and I added a Silverstone HDD cage with a 120mm fan inside and it helped the air flow a lot more. The TJ-09 & TJ-10 are awesome case's. I really like the new Coolermaster 840 case pretty good air flow from the looks of it.

If you look at the case closely you'll see that is what it is all about; air flow.

I am getting it to help keep my overclocked 920 and GTX 260 SLi cool as possible on air.

Looks like I won't be getting mine for a while. I checked tracking and it says delayed because "The package was left in a UPS facility" :p

Great...

That sucks.

LOL, you are such a malcontent. Why do you hate it?

What did you just call me; anyway, it is big, too big. Yet there really is not that much room inside, since there is mesh on both sides, it is harder to hide cables.

Early stacker 830 have defective motherboard tray where the PCI expansion slots are not exactly on correct angle to the tray. which means inserting a new PCI card sometimes can take good 30+ minutes trying to bent the bracket in right angle.

coolermaster knows about, there is even post about it on their forums, they supposedly replaced few trays for some people, after 5 e-mails i send to them about this issue they never replied.

Good reasons?

Sounds good, I had generally heard good things about them.
