Good luck Rage. I also love the look of that case and almost started to do what you are thinking about doing when I had one. It was just easier to get the case I have now.
Interested to see how yours turns out though.

But my two statements weren't directly related to each other. I was talking about the last 3-4 years in general in the first one I still like other Silverstones as well.
In fact the TJ11 combines a lot of those cases into one. Plus it finally brings the Raven cooling concept to their high-end models.
price is very unsual, since its really NOT that high quality, doesn't use any exotic materials, its MORE then twice expensive then their previous TJ cases.

And in no shape and form is better then other high end cases.

A 4.25 hole saw works perfectly for 120mm fans rage. You could always experiment with reversing the rear fan to intake, one or two in the side panel and an exhaust on the top.

this would leave almost nothing in the way of dead zones in the chassis and still let you maintain the integrity of the front design.

And if I could get a TJ11 for only $500 (or how much does it cost in the US?), I wouldn't complain at all
lol, and I've never spent more than $80 on a case, and hopefully never will.

I know what you mean Rage. $100 is about the limit for me on a case.

Anyone ever buff/wax/polish their case? I'd like the black to be blacker on this WaveMaster, I want it to really shine like new, from far away AND up close...


And how about a cleaner/protectant for brushed aluminum? Both of my cases have brushed aluminum fronts and I'd like to clean them and protect them better from oils and dirt.
