Good Design, Bad Execution/Quality Control

Sanjeev V., Newegg
3 December 2012
  • Summary: * The dent, as I state above, was NOT due to transportation. And it was very clear on superficial visual inspection. So why did Quality Control not catch it??? * The power switch on the front panel was disconnected.
  • Pros: * Looks good. * Easy mounting/unmounting of hard drives. * Temperature display.
  • Cons: * Non existent quality control - case came with a dent on the side of the PSU mounting, based on the location cannot be a transportation dent. I did not want to take the hassle of RMA, so fixed it myself. * Power cables were NOT connected to the front panel power switch. I spent about an hour tro...

Faulty CPU Extension

Angela P., Newegg
29 September 2012
  • Summary: Overall, I actually liked this case despite my bad review. I just wish they would have tested the CPU extension cables before shipping them out, you just killed my power supply Zalman, shame!!!
  • Pros: -Excellent Airflow -Good Cable Management -Love the looks -Hard drive bays route wires through the rear of the case -Fan Controller -Sturdy Design
  • Cons: -CPU EXTENSION WIRE FRIED MY PSU, Newegg says to contact the manufacturer, Manufacturer says to contact newegg, I hate wild goose chases. -Hard drives rattle slightly even when secured with the extra screw meant to secure them tightly -Side panel fan rattles slightly at times, then goes quiet, th...

Many defects, will not respond to rebate

Anonymous, Newegg
9 April 2012
  • Summary: I would buy a value Rosewill instead - their CS has been responsive and great. A 120 mm fan won't fit in the bottom next to my (properly mounted) XFX Core Pro 650w PSU. The fan will, rather, but not over the screw holes.
  • Pros: -A lot of airflow -Interesting to look at -Cable management -3 awful LED fans > 0 awful LED fans? -Side compartment for CPU cooler
  • Cons: -Won't respond to rebate requests -USB ports don't work up front if using fan controller -Fan controller can only power one fan reliably -Only fits SIX fans - fan won't fit in bottom next to PSU -SSD slot won't fit an SSD -Side fan sounds godawful even though low airflow -Top and front LED fans s...

Zalman Case Z9 Plus

cuscom, Mwave.com
27 September 2011
  • Summary: This case cools well, as you would expect from Zalman. It looks OK too. But putting the components into the case takes additional time because the dimensions are not standardized for the parts.
  • Pros: 4 Zalman Fans, Thermistor readout, Power on button at top center of case.
  • Cons: Hard drive mounts use grommets & screws that are too short and must be unscrewed or the grommets will not reach the slide in tracks. Mid board mounting stand offs were srewed in by the company so tightly that their threads were stripped. Getting them out was not easy. When front panel is pulled f...

  • Excerpt: Купил, собрал систему, включаю, а она не включается. Подумал может с мамкой что, замкнул отверткой на мамке контакт- включился, не работает кнопка((( Перекинул на резет, но осадочек остался, пусть лежит до следующего апгрейда.
  • Pros: дешевый, стильный
  • Cons: чувствуется дешевизна

  • Pros: да дешевый в комплекте кулеры удобная установка жеских дисков
  • Cons: а тут то...самое главное это то что уже писали.Два отверстия для крепления вентиля проца пришлись на ребро отверстия установки проца,это реально.в итоге эти крепежи давят на корпус получается изгиб матери и корпуса.любой кулер на боковой стенке воет.воет поток воздуха.пришлось снять.передняя пане...
