  • Summary: Basically, this case would be perfect if not for a couple of issues. It offers for the price one of the best bangs-for-the-buck out there. The amount of sheer airflow options available in this case (up to 7 fans mountable), coupled with the fact that it comes with 4 free fans, alone make this case a...
  • Pros: For the price:, +Good build quality, +4 front USB, +Simple but functional fan controller, +Airflow, +4 free fans (that are fairly quiet), +Front 5.25" bay mesh covers are remountable, +Big, all graphics cards will fit, +Good enough cable management, +Back motherboard cutout
  • Cons: +Back PCIe brackets are not reusable, +No dust filter on top-panel/top-rear exhausts, +Side panel is wide open, lets lots of dust through, +HDD mounting mechanism allows for vibrations, +Air passing through the mesh can make rattling sounds, +Water cooling is apparently a pain in this thing, +Pow...

  • Summary: This case has various features that make it very much worth the tiny price this case comes in, it looks beautiful but in this case, looks sacrifice performance a bit. barely any air gets through the front fan (even with a 140mm fan).
  • Pros: -fits massive graphics cards., -very good air cooling, -pleasing aesthetics, -adequate size for gaming PCs, -Flexible fan mounting options.
  • Cons: -Liquid cooling is an absolute nightmare., -Using fans on the honeycomb grill makes an annoying sound., -very small vent for PSU.

  • Summary: Wouldn't ordinarily add my 2 cents worth to the 150+ reviews except I noticed most were written when case was new. I've used this as a test box for a year and recently converted it to an all purpose, light gaming rig for my son.
  • Pros: - value, - airflow, - build quality
  • Cons: - dust magnet, - laughable 3.5 HD mounts, - finicky side panels

  • Summary: Very modest and tamed computer case, I definitely would recommend the Z9 Plus to anyone thinking of building a pc. This product is in anyone's price range, and it does not look or feel like a cheaply made product.
  • Pros: -very spacious, -amazing price!, -nice window panel, -comes with many fans, -sturdy frame
  • Cons: -will not fit a 240mm radiator unless you mod the case

  • Summary: This case is alright I wouldn't buy it again nor would I recomend it to a friend but for 40$ it's not bad...well parts of it are bothersome but I think the good outweighs the bad, but not by much, If you need to save money on the case then go ahead and get this but understand that you get an ok case...
  • Pros: cheap, pretty good looking, fairly solid
  • Cons: cable managment is difficult, the 24 pin is pretty tight but nothing you shouldn't be able to manage

  • Pros: air flow and design is great i really love this case
  • Cons: audio ports are badon 2 cases i ordered both mic ports are bad this normally would not be bad but since there are for a lab where they are being used specifically for text to speech and speech to text dragon naturally speaking I just can replace the front panel due to the reset switch being imbedded

Nice, but not buying another

  • Summary: Overall the case is fine for this price point. However the sub standard expansion slot area of the case concerns me. With repeated use, the thin sheet metal and small screws for securing fairly heavy video cards makes me nervous.
  • Pros: 4 front USB 2.0, side mounted 3.5 drive bays, 3.5 drive bays use vibration reducing "rubber tire" method of mounting drives. Has two locations already configured for SSD's. 4 included fans.
  • Cons: Punch out expansion slots. Uses a very small screw for expansion slots, not large enough to firmly secure add on cards.

  • Summary: I believe I should still be under warranty and be able to return the case but I would rather not have to take it apart and put it back together again. If there is some way to just replace the front panel that would be great.
  • Pros: Looks great, super quiet and very nice cable management.
  • Cons: Unfortunately, after three weeks my front panel audio input jack no longer works. I have been using a headset for about two weeks with the system and today it ceased to work. Now I am forced to use the audio jacks on my motherboard, speaking of which; another slight problem I have with this case ...
