I like it that the Kublai KL07 is REALLY made to be silent, sacrificing the window to have a super huge piece of foam padding on the panel.
And just how spacious is the KL07? Very spacious, here’s what it looks like with the board, cooler and graphics card install.
Just take note that the distance between the motherboard and the upper side of the case is very close so you have little to no room for mounting radiator units, not even exhaust fan
I like it that the board tray has a huge cutout for easy mounting of heatsink back plate, notice also that there is also foam padding on the panel that covers the under side and there are also rubber grommets on other cutouts for cable management purpose.
Drives? No problem, the Kublai KL07 got this covered by providing 3x 2.5″ drive bays and 3x 3.5″ drive bays. Sweet!
There’s really nothing much to it – the casing is spacious and provides sufficient room to route cables. The only thing you have to consider is that the foam padding on the component area may be in conflict with taller heatsinks, or PCI-E connections on tall GPU. The foam panel on the other side might make it a little tedious when it comes to closing the panel as the foam will definitely in friction with cables at the rear.
Once you get pass that hurdle the Kublai KL07’s sound absorption capability will definitely be the greatest reward.
Being one who loves silent PC, I must say that the foam paddings and the 3x pre-installed 140mm fans are my favorite parts of the Kublai KL07.
The SilverStone Kublai KL07 is just one awesome piece of casing for those “silent oriented”, I am one of them and I’m thoroughly impressed.
RGB? Who needs RGB – a window-less unit like this means you need not worry much about what the innards look like, of course that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t manage cables properly. The Kublai KL07 retails at around RM 350 and is the perfect match for one who loves a SILENT PC with clean cut on the design. Great stuff!
