SilverStone Kublai KL05 Review

Introduction

The Kublai KL05 from Silverstone is available as both a Quiet version, with a solid side panel and front panel, and as the Windowed version with a mesh front grill that we have here review today.  Measuring 535mm in height it's a little taller than most mid towers, but rest assured there's a very good reason for that.  Take a closer look at the case and you'll spot that the roof panel is somewhat elevated.  It doesn't take a genius to work out that as a result of this lift, the KL05 can take decent sized rads up in the roof.  But that's not where the water cooling options end.  if you want to know more you're going to have to read on, starting with the Technical Specification.

Good case with decent options for cooling.
I like the fact that it has 5 1/4" bays on the front. For me, this is necessary.
The price is pretty good too.Quote

You excite a man with the possibility of an OC3D video only for those dreams to be squashed and thrown away.

It just looks so odd to me with that small window and the tall roof. I don't think I could have this on my desk without being annoyed by that on a daily basis.Quote

I can second that, it just looks uninspiring.Quote
