Silverstone CW02 HTPC Case Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Silverstone has built their reputation on high-quality computer cases. In particular, they have become a dominant force in the mid- to high-end HTPC case sector. 3DGameMan has posted a review of the SilverStone CW02, which is the companys premiere HTPC case.
Lets see what he had to say:
"I really like the SilverStone CW02 HTPC Case, right from the outside to the inside. Its looks fantastic, it's all aluminum, room to work on the inside, fits standard ATX motherboards and ATX PSUs. This allows the system builder a lot more freedom when selecting computer hardware over HTPC cases that only fit micro-ATX components. This case also has great air circulation from the included 120mm fan at the back and two optional 92mm fans can be added at the bottom front. This case even accepts full length Video Cards and coolers up to 160mm high. The remote that's provided works really well in both Windows and Windows Media Center. Let's not forget about the LCD at the front of the case which shows all kinds of system and media information. This is clearly a HTPC for the hardcore! Watch the video to find out more and check out the bloopers at the end."
For an HTPC case, this thing is HUGE. Its the height that is truly shocking, you could fit a heatpipe tower heatsink in there, which would be unthinkable in any other case. If the height and the price dont bother you, then this is a highly capable HTPC case worth consideration.
