Silverstone has produced some pretty massive cases in its time, but the new Temjin TJ12 concept case it showed off at Computex is seriously immense.

The case features the same bottom-to-top cooling design seen in Silverstone’s Raven and Fortress-series cases, but it's built on a completely different scale, with room to comfortably fit up to six dual slot graphics cards with room between each of them.

This is made possible by a series of PCI-E extender daughter-boards into which the graphics cards fit, which then feed back into the PCI-E slots of the motherboard via flexible PCI-E data cables. You can just about see these in the picture of the back/top of the case below, and the arrangement gives the bizarre impression that the graphics cards are floating above the motherboard.

There's also room for a pair of PSUs inside this behemoth of a case, as well as a pair of triple 120mm radiators in the base. Interestingly, Silverstone has also done away with 5.25in and 3.5in mounts inside the TJ12; only 2.5in mounts remain, meaning you’ll need to stock up on SSDs or laptop hard disks if you want to house a system inside the TJ12.

Silverstone also aims to make the top of the case modular. As such, if you didn’t require the mounting points for the extra pair of graphics cards, you could swap these out for an additional PSU mount instead.

Also on show was Silverstone’s new prototype passive CPU cooler, which is huge in its own right but somehow looks reasonably sized inside this case.

Do you hope Silverstone gets around to putting this case into production? How much would you be prepared to pay for a case such as this? Let us know your thoughts in the forums.
