The MK735m is almost identical to the MK735 except that it is a left to right mirror image.

It has advantages and disadvantages when compared to the original MK735.

Advantages:

  • The front cooling fan is directly in front the motherboard PCI-e slot.  This should help cool heat producing add-in PCI-e cards.  
  • The power supply is located on the right, which might be closer to your motherboard’s power connection.  This is usually better for SFX power supplies or ATX power supplies with shorter wiring.

Disadvantages:

  • The MK735m does not have the second PCI-e card knock-out on the back panel.  Typical Mini-ITX motherboards only support one PCI-e card, but that secondary area on the MK735 allows for double-wide SFF PCI-e cards or the addition of a PCI-e style bracket that does not need to be plugged into a motherboard PCI-e slot.
  • Unlike the MK735, the slightly larger Mini-DTX motherboard format will NOT fit in the MK725m.
  • Disk drive power cables will come from the power supply located on the right.  Modular ribbon type cables might impede airflow over the disk drives a little bit more.
