  • Silverstone Kublai KL06 Case Review



    One of the best cases I have ever reviewed was the Silverstone Temjin TJ08-E.  While that might be a rather bold statement given the appeal of the Raven RV02 and some of the more exotic cases in the Hardware Asylum archives the reason is simple.  It was compact, had a clean design, excellent cooling and was very usable.  Sure the case had some drawbacks but overall it was a great case.

    In this review we will be looking at another case from Silverstone that is very similar to the TJ08-E, the Kublai KL06.  The KL06 is the first MicroATX cases in the Kublai series which has been famed for following classic styles and designed with great layout efficiencies.  As with all Silverstone cases the KL06 also features their signature positive pressure design to prevent dust collection and can be configured to handle a variety of systems.
