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.
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.
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.
Summary: So after finally installing all my new hardware into this case, it wouldn't power up. So after checking all the components where installed correctly, I decided to check the power on cable. On examination, the cable connecting the power switch to the motherboard was disconnected. This was a complete pain to fix as the wiring was hidden away. After I reconnected the cable it still wouldn't work, so I had to access the power on switch its self.
Summary: Overall this is a great case like I said great airflow, lots of fans, and looks super sweet. The second power cord (not the 24 pin) was a tight squeeze behind the motherboard as that input was at the top of the case and motherboard. The only thing I really didn't like was that the USB 3.0 connectors for the front do not connect into the front if the motherboard but has to be connected into the back panel wasting valuable back panel USB 3.0 ports.
Pros: The amount of fans that can be put in, great airflow, looks fricken sweet!
Cons: USB 3.0 doesn't plug into motherboard, and tight squeeze for 2nd power cord to motherboard, could have a few more hdd/ssd slots
Summary: Very nice looking case, sturdy, good airflow. I bought it on sale for $60 and honestly wouldn't pay more than that for it cuz while it does look quite badass i wasn't really impressed with some of the features. such as two of the case fans have to be connected to the motherboard with no option of just connecting to a four prong power connector, which was annoying in my case due to the fact that my motherboard only has two spots for such connectors and one is for the cpu...
Pros: Awesome looking, Good Airflow, Adequate room
Cons: -Case Fans use system controlled cables only not four pin connectors, -Stupid method to put hard drives into the case
