  • Pros: Rebates are nice - wait for a rebate if you can, free upgrades are nice. every thing fits (below) except 1 thing (cons) even was able to add a second 120mm front fan with the way the 5.25 bay covers are made with little grooves just the right size for a fan screw front USB are always nice, and th...

  • Summary: This seems to be a super popular case these days, for good reason. I've purchased a few of them myself for friends and other random people, and have been quite happy with them so far. They'll fit whatever components you'd like, offer decent cooling performance, and won't break the bank.
  • Pros: Price, Looks nice, Good Cooling
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: This was for my kids. They really liked the look of this case and it wasn't really expensive. The HDD mount system is good. you have access to the CPU backplate from behind, this is really a plus to mount an aftermarket HS.
  • Pros: Good airflow, CPU backplate access, good price
  • Cons: nothing speciel to say.

  • Summary: The case airflow needs to be experimented depending on your system setup. Typical airflow will cause higher temperature. Play around with the fan setup.
  • Pros: Looks great in the exterior. Small
  • Cons: Bad front intake airflow because of the Z logo. Conventional airflow replacement does not work in this case. Grilled side panel affects the window

Love it.

  • Summary: Box arrived without goody bag (the bag with screws, HDD rubbers, etc. I sent an email to Zalman, and received a new one in a week. Everything went together perfectly afterward. The metal isn't as thick as it was on my room mate's $200 Corsair, however, I didn't pay $200 for it, so, no harm.
  • Pros: Solid case, it has a lot of fans, easy access with both sides opening. Goody bag had a lot of goodies, after I got it (see thoughts). Bottom PSU. Lots of USB ports. Temperature on front in easy to read red LCD which, in my opinion enhances the look, fan control. Extremely good looking.
  • Cons: Can't cover the expansion card back covers after you pull out the tabs.

Decent Case For The Price

  • Pros: Pretty good case, I used it for my second build I did over the summer and it turned out pretty good. Fans are very noisy but they get the job done. Case is made out of somewhat flimsy metal and plastic but for the most part it is pretty solid. If you plan on using this for gaming I would advise y...
  • Cons: The only thing that I found to be a real pain is that in order to install a hard drive or a DVD drive, you literally have to screw in about 20 screws which is pretty annoying. Also on the back where your graphics card sticks out you have to keep bending the metal until it finally breaks off so th...
