         SilverStone’s third Kublai mid tower chassis is made for aficionados and serious computer users that require a high level component with no trade-offs for cooling and quietness. Following the designing concept of previous chassis from Kublai series, the KL03 also possess many features borrowed from the Temjin series. Constructed using steel and aluminum, this chassis strikes a great balance between external aesthetics and excellent structural rigidity. With blue LED ring adorning a shield-shaped extruded aluminum panel and sleek hair-line surface, a noble appearance matches perfectly with the functional design that SilverStone’s engineers have devised. The interior and cooling layout gives option for 120mm side fans (side panel), which can further elevate the performance level of KL03, making this chassis a great choice regardless of the intended application.

Before you turn on the PC please make sure the power connector from your system hard drive is isolated from the power connector connected to the hard drive you wish to hot-swap. Both connectors should be on different cables from the power supply.

  1. This is the correct IDE/SATA power connector configuration. Please refer the picture as shown. (A is your system hard drive, B is your hot-swap hard drive)
  2. This is the incorrect IDE/SATA power connector configuration where both drives are being powered by the same cable from the power supply.
This configuration affects all products with hot-swappable features including: KL series, FT series, RV series, and FP35.

Power switch and reset switch installation guide:
Please refer to the motherboard manuals for the motherboard’s “Front Panel Connector” or “System Panel Connector” pin definition. Power switch and reset switch have no polarity, so they can be connected in any orientation.
