Opening the case...

The TJ-06 is available with both windowed and solid side panels. Looking at the picture, we see a little plastic thing on the bottom of the case. Interesting...

The door for the Silverstone was held in with an interesting mechanism that I'd never seen before. They worked, but a set of thumbscrews would have been easier to deal with.

Let's quickly go through the connectors so we can get to the really good stuff. First off, there are the standard power connectors.

Secondly, there was the USB headers. I've noticed that all newer cases seem to come with the USB ports this way which is a great thing for one's sanity especially when building many many systems.

Unlike USB, there are still some non-standard implementations of the Firewire headers so Silverstone decided to include the convenience block with individual pin outs for those with weird settings. Very nice!

Let's get to the good stuff shall we?
