Summary: This is to a couple of the other reviewers. This is a full tower case and like all of them, there is plenty of room to work with inside of it. That is why we buy them. One last remarks and I'm done with the mini rant. This thing is one heavy bucket as most are once you load them with all your gear.
Cons: This is to answer Zalman, for wanting me to contact them about this case. Why would I do that? Are they going to give me another case, no. I went back and checked when I bought this boiler room of a case, 8/6/10 was the date. So I had waited quite awhile before writing a review. Zalman is just go...
Summary: I am very sorry I bought this thing and switched back to a Cool Master full tower. Don't waste your time and money as I did.
Pros: Good room as any full tower has and somewhat decent room for cables and wires.
Cons: This is a closed case for the most part. ZERO side wall fans. 2 fans on top and 2 on the bottom. The hard drive fans they supply, push next to no air. What's worse is the fact that "Nobody", makes fans to replace the front fans. Check the Zalman site and see the size fans these are. Zalman has ne...
Summary: The attorney general eric holder is a piece of dirt, he was instrumental in releasing the FALN terrorists who killed americans. He also tried to stop Arizona from doing the right thing involving the invading illegals
Pros: great case, lots of room good airflow nice thumbscrews, doors come off and go back on with ease, great tolerance on the manufacturing
Cons: little plastic clip for one of the HDD bay doors broke off right away, I had to cut out and super glue a replacement clip.. still keeps breaking. this could be the only area wherethe designers and engineers failed
Summary: I got it for a workstation/database server build. Others have remarked about cooling. In my case, this isn't a gaming machine, and it's not overclocked so I don't have much issue.
Pros: Nice looking case IMO. I like the hot swap bays, even though I haven't gotten (and won't get) the backplates. Even without the plates it makes adding & removing the drives easier. IMO its a nice design that isn't totally over the top like many of the gaming cases. For a workstation/server I think...
Cons: The two fans that come with the case are mounted with the wires in the wrong direction IMO. The wires are toward the primary opening, not the backplane. I removed mine and rotated them so I could feed the wires through the backplane. This was a needless hassle. Also, if I had it to do over again ...
Summary: My one year old loves the blue power button. I am constantly having to keep him away from it.
Pros: The case has plenty of places for fans. It is big enough for a large CPU cooling fan. I like the USB ports on top of the case.
Cons: This case is big. Measure the space you are planning to put it in. When I got the case, the lower hot swapable harddrive bay door latch was broke. I did not realize this until the entire computer was assembled. Word of advice: take all the tape off, inspect everything prior to building up a compu...
Summary: it disappoint me very much. For me, I just need that three hot swap for my hard drives. Most of everything else will be Cons
Pros: It looks cool. it come with hard drive hot swap bay. PSU position is nice, you can put a fan below it in order to help it for cooling purpose. come with 5 fan slot.
Cons: if you want to add a fan in the top, you will need to get rid of top cover first, BUT there are two screw hidding very deep in near the front, it is a pain the get it off. runs hot, I have to repalce the defualt fan by three 5000 rmp fans to get cool. There is no fan slot for hard drive bay
Pros: 1. Beautiful clean looking case. 2. Huge with plenty of working space. 3. Good cable management. 4. Front loading drives (bottom three are hot swappable). 5. Good air flow design. 6. Low mounted PSU. 7. Nice blue LED power light.
Cons: Side panels are a little flimsy but it's not a big deal. Helps keep the weight down I guess since this thing is heavy.
Summary: The entire system had ran both perfectly & cool in a ANTEC 182 case for months. All I wanted was more space & HD hot swap. Not Zalman's fault but my oldest 300GB WD VelociRaptor's connectors did not mate up with the backplane. I then had to remove the 2nd backplane I had to purchase separate.
Pros: Looks nice if you clean the finger prints off every 5 minutes or so. The hard drive cage was a nice idea if they had paid attention to both the cooling of the cages & lowering the hard drive noises. Case did not have any sharp edges & is fairly simple to work with.
Cons: I've never written a bad review before, but this compelled me. Quality control & cooling is very poor for a pricey case & company specializing in cooling. Extremely poor airflow to HDs, which then run very hot with or without the HD backplane. No space or method to add cooling to HDs. Vents in HD...
Summary: I am about to swap this case for another one after owning it for three months. I fear opening this thing up, something a computer modder should love. It also has a cheap feeling to aspects of it, such as the plastic feet, whose rubber stops all came off after a week.
Pros: Looks Nice Hot Swappable Hard Drive Bays (3) Quiet
Cons: Frustrating to work with - Just try to take off the front panel, you have to practically take the whole thing apart. Screws are a pain. Took me an hour to take the whole thing apart. This thing runs hot. No place to mount a front fan. There are two slots to put blow holes on it, and one impossibl...
Summary: do we really need the removable power supply feature? did make putting it in easier i guess
Pros: great looking case. thumb screws on everything. i read somewhere that the cover on the front ports didnt close flushed, mine is perfect. the ring of blue light around the power button is awesome, not too bright at all. the cable routing behind the mobo tray is pretty good.
Cons: finger prints, yes. the only ways to improve this thing; make the mobo tray removable and do away with the feet on the bottom. they look nice but can be awkward (read: i dont mean just take them off, there are air intakes on the bottom, this is what needs changing)
