SilverStone is at it again, but this time they are looking to mix things up by venturing into unprecedented areas. Lately, it seems that the competition has shaken the sub-$100 case market, and SilverStone is not willing to stand down. Mostly known for their premium cases and their innovative ideas, SilverStone has taken a different approach this time from their top notch designs and instead released the SilverStone Kublai KL05B-Q Mid-Tower case, which Benchmark Reviews will be taking a look at today.


If you haven’t heard from SilverStone’s Kublai series, I don’t blame you, The first time Benchmark Reviews took a look at a Kublai case was in 2013, when Tom Jaskulka reviewed the KL04 Mid-Tower, which until now, remained the last case of this series. According to SilverStone, Kublai takes some of the characteristics of the Temjin series of cases and strips down some of the features to allow for a more affordable end product. It is a smart decision from SilverStone to update this line-up as each year, we see more affordable and feature-full cases appear.
