In Pictures: Five More Mainstream Gaming Cases, Previewed

KL04 Cable Management

SilverStone provides exceptional space behind the KL04’s motherboard tray for cable management, going so far as to roll the edges of each access hole. That treatment makes internal grommets a mere aesthetic feature, so SilverStone omits them on this non-windowed case.

KL04 Dust Control

The ultimate contrast of cost-cutting and advanced features is found in the pair of slide-out filters appearing in the same photo as the flimsy card holder. Extra care is taken to roll the edges of internal cable access holes, even as the previously-viewed liquid cooling line holes lack grommets.

KL04 Intake Fans

The KL04’s right side supports up to two 120 mm intake fans, but includes only one. The face panel is not designed for removal, but a little ingenuity helped us take this photo without destroying the case.

KL04 Top Panel

Popping the mesh grill off the KL04’s top panel, we found two 120 mm and two 140 mm fan mounts. SilverStone claims that this allows the case to support a pair of fans in either size, though the second pair of 140 mm holes simply relocates a single fan by around one inch. Dual 120 mm fans really are supported, and extra offset towards the left side for these mounting holes eases the installation of dual 120 mm-fan radiators.
