Earlier in the day we had posted a review of the SilverStone Temjin TJ08, and now again today we are back with SilverStone as we look at their new Crown series. The case christening the Crown series is the CW01, which is designed to be a powerful and flexible high-end multimedia server case. The Crown CW01 is based upon the layout of the SilverStone Lascala LC18 and offers several modifications with the end-user in mind. Among the changes are a reversible PSU mounting design, increased number of hard drive options, and many more improvements. The SilverStone CW01 is catered to both HTPC and traditional computer enthusiasts, but how well is this case able to stack up against its competitors and SilverStone's other selection? Well, simply put the Crown CW01 is a darn nice case with very few negative points.

This chassis is composed of aluminum and has an intriguing look to its design.
