Ordered up my beautiful TJ-07BW-USB3.0, and now I couldn't be happier. It is absolutely the ONLY case that meets all my criteria - full tower, aluminum, black, side window, bottom mount PSU, removable mobo tray, and - most rare of all these days - front panel ports below the 5.25 drive bays. Perfect. You did an awesome job on the mods and the paint, by the way! I could never do that to mine though - I'm a sucker for black. Still, looks damn fine, man!

I do agree this is my second tj-07.... the first was sold to my cousin who wanted it from me, bought a switch 810 to do this project but somehow doesnt satisfy me.... was lucky to find this 2nd hand set at a good price.... so bought it and never look back, only thing i never like abt the case was no effort thought for cable management... theres always a solution to any probs. yah my 3.5inch bay is still empty as i dont know what to put that, dont like the default front panel with so many unwanted cables... lol...

Yep, but the thing is you KNOW what to tweak and how to get proper lighting on your shots. wink.gif

Good looking build so far. you have got a good clean feel to it with tubing too NICE. hope to see more soon on you upgrades. you planing any cover for the top fan mod ?
I am planning a Black/Yellow build so its nice to see others with the same feel. I too love the TJ07 still there best case. Wish they would update it slightly internals mainly .. but not to much as to destroy it ....
