The case was designed with double glass panel design to show off RGB internals, but with the full mesh front and 12 small vents located in the top to provide that much needed airflow for high performance gaming builds.
An overview of the Kolink Levante:

Air-cooled out of the box with support for water-cooling
When it comes to configuring your build, the Levante supports up to an E-ATX sized motherboard and a full size 380mm GPU for both entry level and high-end specifications. Air-cooling comes from it's four pre-installed RGB LED fans, three behind the front mesh panel and one in the back. There's also the option for up to two additional 2 x 120mm top mounted fans, with 12 small mesh vents installed in the top of the case to increase air-flow. The built in RGB controller supports not only up to 6 x 120mm fans but also two LED strips.

Oh wow. They just mixed and matched several designs from Phanteks, CM and Corsair and put their sticker on it.

Apparently it takes a budget case to do the silenced top (roof) right. Too bad they cocked up the front by not doing the same. I don't get it why it's so hard to do such design. So far I've only seein it partially done on BeQuet cases and fully on CoolerMaster MC500M and Maker 5. It's almost as if no one is looking for an ultra quiet case anymore, for as long as it's all flashy with the stupid RGB...

If you cover the fans and leave sides or back open, you totally change the acoustic profile of the case. My crappy cheap Carbide 330R is like a day and night with front door closed or open. And yet it still gets tons of air even when closed. If only they made the top in same way...

This roof setup is known to be very limiting to airflow. If you don't put pressure fans under there, you may as well just close it entirely. And even then... its a known drawback of the Phanteks Enthoo, which they copy pasted here.

I'm using 2x Corsair AF140 fans on my modified top and they do push quite some air out of very narrow gaps. The main problem is that cases have a removable frame for fans/radiators for such tops, meaning if top isn't sealed around fans, they'll just be recurculating own air instead of actually pushing it out (which now that I think of it I'll have to seal the open gaps around my fans too to achieve better airflow). It's why most cases suck with such top design. It's like people designing cases have zero knowledge of aero and thermo dynamics. Or they just simply don't care.

'Midi tower case'


Strange that there don't seem to be any ports on the case :D. I'd hardly call a $93 mid-tower a budget choice.

The price is okay, the air flow is adequate, but water cooling support is terrible. No room for front radiator without losing several storage mounts, and the tight fit on top is not good for any radiator. 360 rad could possbly be mounted in front, but you'd lose all storage space.
