And so to the conclusion...Well,this is going to be a short one, and that can only mean it's a good one.
We can't help but say that if you've read the full review then you'll already have a good idea about how we feel about the KL07, but as we know there are more than a few lazy feckers out there who simply read the intro and then skip to the conclusion, hoping to get the full effect, then best we pander to their every whim and spell out in really easy to digest snippets what we think of the KL07...Yeah, you'd think so, but we're not going to. If you want the ever important detail, then you're going to have to put in the leg work and sacrifice those all too important seconds of your limited attention span to read the whole review.
So if you're still not willing to put in the leg work we have to ask are you allegedly lazy millennials ready for our thoughts on the case??? Yes? OK,here it is, The KL07 is a fantastic case, but it needs...well it not so much needs, as deserves a window....Maybe....yeah maybe....Why maybe? well, the case offers so much that should be on show. A false floor, stealth'd drive bays, excellent cable management etc, but all of this is hidden by the solid steel side panel. On the other hand, the solidity of the the panels, and the inherent noise reduction qualities therein, combined with the acres of egg box foam linings to the side, roof and front panel, make this case a very rare creature indeed.
Why a rare creature? Well how many cases can you name that offer front mounted fat 360/280mm rads combined with a 240mm rad in the roof, all of which is wrapped up in a case that is, in itself internally cocooned in high profile egg box foam?.....No? Us neither, and that's exactly our point. The KL07 is something of an oddity, it has all the features you'd like to see displayed, but it keeps them all under wraps. We think that there's more than a few opportunities for a modder to wreak havoc here. At the same time however, the KL07 is perfectly positioned to provide the builder with a case that can deliver silence and cooling in equal measures straight out of the box.
That's it chaps. if you're interest is tweaked and you want the detail then you'd better dig in to the full review. For our part we're going to award the KL07 both the Silence and the OC3D approved awards.
