SilverStone Announces the Kublai KL05 Chassis


SilverStone announced the Kublai KL05 series case. The Kublai KL05 is a high quality ATX tower case designed for enthusiasts with the need for ample liquid cooling and storage space. It has convenient tool-less 5.25" drive bays and highly flexible cages designed to accommodate any combination of 2.5" or 3.5" drives. With a relatively tall and slender profile, it has surprising room for fitting liquid coolers.

Not only does it have complete support for 240mm and 280mm radiators on both the top and the front panel, it has numerous paths for tubing, mounting holes for fans, and easily removable filters for an exceptionally cool and clean build. KL05 is offered in two variations depending on front panel design so whether the preference is for a direct intake case with side window or a conservative, quiet build with indirect intake and sound-absorbing foam, there is a model perfectly suited for the intended task.

My Thoughts

The one thing that this case screams is budget water cooling, the top and front support large radiators and the inside is fairly spacious, ideal for building a water cooling loop while remaining under the "budget case" classification.

We can see that to maintain the is case's low pricepoint Silverstone has had to cut some corners, taking away the rubber grommits that we would typically expect for a case of this price and size.

Actually quite a nice chassis. Only thing that bothers me is that it's taller than it is long so it looks a bit silly, especially with the window and rather tall top panel.Quote
