While the front panel is quite unique, as we progress to the inside the case actually looks quite generic. The side panel is held in place with normal screws, for an enthusiast case, thumbscrews are appreciated though.
The window gives you a glimpse of what’s inside; unfortunately the view is blocked by an ugly grey piece of metal…
The window is made from hard plastic and won’t break easily; it’s riveted to the metal side panel.
This metal panel can hold 2x120mm fans, it would have been more esthetically correct to have the fan(s) integrated into the side panel. As now you have to open a second panel to have access to the mainboard area:
At the bottom of the photo above you can make out the plastic feet, which spin outwards 90°C to provide better stability.
The metal panel swings open on its own hinge and at the inside you’ll find a series of plastic/rubber combo rails, which slide out and hold your PCI(e) cards in place.
The other side of the KL03 is less interesting:
The front door swings open to the left in standard config, but this can be changed as we already mentioned. The 5.25” bay covers are transparent, but this is only noticed when using flash photography. Cooling
Silverstone equipped the KL03 with 2x120mm fans, one in the front and one in the rear, creating the ideal airflow path for ATX computer systems. The one in the rear has a finger guard at the inside, you can also see the PCI slot covers in the photo below which have ventilation holes. These covers are held in place with normal screws.
The 120mm fan in the front of the case is quite special; it’s integrated in the front 5.25” panels, removing it requires a screwdriver pushed in from the side:
Two things of note in the photo below, the fan has no wired connection to the front of the case, you can remove it without having to unplug anything! Quite an inventive design and it works great. Secondly you can see the 3.5” hard drive racks from the front, as you can slide up to 4 HDDs from the front.
