Omg. Really? Have you even seen the TJ11? Go look at the pics then post back here. I think it will make more sense when you see the push fit dust filtered top cover.

I think you'll find it hides the cables nicely.

As for dust... well for the dust that does happen to get through the filter... it will have to overcome the pressure of the air exhausting from the video card. But if the dust where you live is dense enough to do that and still get through the filter then I suppose it could be a problem.

Enthusiasts... yes. The people that are on this forum. A "standard" user will most likely buy a Dell. And if you put your pc in a cabinet you should probably be buying a Dell.

Optical drives... what? Who in the hell still uses optical drives? If your profession demands that you have one I can understand it. But most of us no longer include one in our builds. The only reason I'm including one in my latest build is because Silverstone makes a cool little optical drive / SSD bay found HERE.

Yes, I've seen them many times.

Euhm... maybe I missed something, but how do you install your games from cd/dvd?

Or how do you rip your audio CD's (the ones you already have ofcourse...)

Maybe you're not "old" enough tongue.gif so maybe you only knew Steam etc for games and iTunes for music etc... tongue.gif

But when you lived in the 80's and 90's you should remember those things were on a CD/DVD tongue.gif

Its all marketing BS. And Silverstone holds a patent on that design.

I was kicking out rips on disc back then. But have since upgraded to a head unit in my car that accepts a USB thumb drive with mp3 tracks. As well as an iPhone. No more scratched music discs! smile.gif

That's interesting if Silverstone really does hold a patent on an orientation. I doubt it's that general. But... If Apple can patent a shape I suppose anything is possible in this country's patent office.
