When the first Kublai series chassis was introduced in 2007, it had innovative storage design that was ahead of its time. For the Kublai KL04, SilverStone engineers again looked to raise the bar with a design that can accommodate four 5.25” drive bays, nine 3.5” hard drives, and up to six 2.5” SSDs. This astonishing amount of storage capacity for a mid-tower chassis is unprecedented and comes with no compromise to compatibility. Expansion cards or graphics cards up to 17 inches long can be installed without the need to remove hard drive cage and even with all hard drive bays filled, cards up to 12.8 inches can still be used. To cope with densely packed hard drive bays, repeated thermal tests and revisions were made to come up with an airflow layout that is capable of handling all hard drives installed without negatively affecting the rest of the system. The right front positioning of the intake fans also helps to divert noise from leaking out directly to the front of the chassis. For 2.5” SSD or HDD mountings, the KL04 has specially designed cages that can be mounted in two locations depending on user needs. If you are looking for a chassis with server-like room for expansion but only limited footprint for a mid-tower, the KL04 is the choice.
Pros: Nice case. Good airflow. Roomy interior.
Cons: It is a little bit too wide and too high for my taste. Also a little overpriced. Still looking for the perfect case.

Retracting Previous Review
Pros: Window situation resolved, all's-well
Cons: None, now that situation has been worked out. I guess Silverstone took a look at the competitors Ad. Felt the same way I did, It looks like there trying to sell windowed model.
Other Thoughts: Thank You New Egg for accurate information being posted. And allowing feed back that combats the manufacturer or other store blow the customer off. If my situation WAS the case or WAS NOT the case its nice to have a opportunity to make your statement with reps, and other customers, if it should happen that way. It seems Small but when you plan your build to be done a certain way, its all gung ho

Thank You New Egg
Pros: Case Really seemed all-right, Just made a mistake of where I got the case.
Cons: Wow don't expect much help, from customer service, whether from tiger direct or silver-stone.
Other Thoughts: I would like to thank new egg for selling the products they portray in there images. They don't show you one thing then send you another, Tiger direct has done this, time to move on and buy else where. I went there because they had the case kl-04 with the window, or made it appear they had the case with the window. If I knew I would of just bought from new egg and cut my own window. Then went on to email, then ignored and finally after 5 attemps to call I get through. They tell me they cant swap panels, I should go to silver stone, went to silver stone to see if they could send a windowed panel from CA, and I would send my solid panel to them. They e-mail back tell me that Tiger Direct sent me the right case in the order, and basically they cant help me either.

Pros: Simple-but-functional design
Cons: Fewer sound dampening features as compared to my previous case, a Cooler Master Cosmos.
Other Thoughts: I bought this case as an upgrade to my Cooler Master Cosmos. At first, I was super excited about the Cosmos - it had everything I wanted. Room for expansion, unmatched front-panel connectivity, sound dampening features, and a slick design.
