The mesh is steel - removing it from the front fan assembly gives you about 30 rpm. The Kublai also lack the case speaker - I really missed those reassuring "Everything's OK" beep/boops which I've heard for 20+ years now (I seldom have my 2.1 speakers powered up while the system is booting)... Penny-pinching can be carried too far! You can move the HDD cage to any block of three bays within the nine available (the ports panel is movable too) so it doesn't need to be obtrusive to cards. The modern, short-chassis burners don't extend past the back edge of the 5" bay rack - well out of the way of most cards except for connectors. A little lack of imagination there, Sky. ;)
