Default Silverstone Kublai?

Anyone had a chance to play with these yet? I just ordered the KL02 for my new build and im curious of anyones experence with them (i know they are brand new and all).

Personally I haven't been to impressed with Silverstone, I just built a LC17 in a HTPC last week and the build quatily was nice, but the cable management was nonexistant. At worst I should be building Thursday/Friday so ill take lots of pictures and leave my impressions, this will be my own box so ill spend time doing the cabling.

Just praying my 8800 and zalman 9700 fit in it

Cable management in a LC17 is awesome you can easily tuck and hide wires :) Just gotta know how.

Expect a FULL review of the KL02 in the coming weeks.

If you have more than one HD, you will LOVE the hot-swapable HD bays.
