Summary: I've purchased quite a few of these Z11s - and will probably be buying more. They are a nice looking case more than anything else. Airflow is decent, price is good with MIR, and everything you want will pretty much fit in here (GTX 780s etc.).
Pros: Looks cool, decent ventilation, cheap with MIR
Summary: I think that if you are used to building systems, are into cool lights or plan to use the case exactly as is then this is a pretty good product. Unfortunately I do not fall into any of these categories. I bought it as it was highly rated, would take 140mm fans and was reasonably priced. I found that the manual is sketchy and inadequate. The instruction for removing the front shows 2 arrows going forwards with the word pull.
Summary: I've had this case for quite a while. It's a bit outdated now, and while it's honestly a nice case I'd recommend something newer for most people. If you don't mind using tools for installation and you don't care about USB 3.0, this case is great. Also a side note, the front pops off with a loud crack sound. This isn't as important as it is just scary when you are trying to clean the front fan cover and you aren't expecting it.
Pros: Lots of fans for the price. Slots for more fans. Looks nice if you don't mind the bulky look. Nice tray for miscellaneous stuff.
Cons: Not tool-free installation. No USB 3.0. Side fans produce obnoxious dust marks (easily cleaned though). It can be pretty difficult to clean the fan covers.
Summary: This is among our top 10 case picks for looks and ease of use. It mods easily and is great feature for price point. Lots of relief on this case makes custom painting this a lot of fun. Tons of points to have custom lights come out from all sides, we really had fun with this.
Pros: A solid performer with lots of air movement Great look and lots of relief Every side of this case is not dull. Very easy to do the build and manage the cables if you are careful and take your time. Very fun to paint and mod
Decent case but reartop exhaust fan runs too slow for me.

Summary: Tbh I think Zalman could of done better on the fan side, as most of them use MOLEX and strangely enough my white back exhaust fan is too slow meaning my idle temp is now 35C on a FX8350 when it used to be between 8-15C so a BIG increase there and unfortunately it wont overclock due to this issue. Im also left with 1 3pin fan connector on my MOBO and a 4pin wheres only 2 of the fitted fans which seem to be the ones which should BE MOLEX arnt.
Pros: Great case, Lots of easy to use features, Lots of space for a mid atx. cable management is ok. Great room for fans. and the side panel fans for exhaust are really nice. Love the easy access back panel to access processor points.
Cons: Not enough room for cable management, adequate for a base system though.
Summary: Bought this in early September of 2013. Great size fits everything i need but might be a tad to big for some. Lots of fans with a nice pull and push format....with 2 fans sitting adjacent the CPU HeatSink. Would Highly recommend those looking for a great Mid Tower for Gaming.
Pros: Fair Size, Great Cooling, Hand Front USB 3.0 Ports, and a Calm Blue LED Glow.
Summary: I bought this case for gaming but a gamers case it is not. Design is bad, I have a Corsair HX850 PSU, when installed the fan slot in the base of the case is no longer useable. Also if using a second graphics card in SLI configuration its proximity to the PSU causes overheating and the blue screen of death. If you are using only 1 graphics card then this case could be good value otherwise steer well clear of it.
Pros: Easy installation. Looks awesome. good cable management. And the dust filter is really great. I love how they place their HDD cage, makes it a lot easier to install a HDD. What's more to say, this is a very great value case.
