I like the design of this case and at £50 it's definitely a bargain.

I have the Zalman Z9 Plus and I have to say I love it, its extremely well built for the price and its reasonably quiet and because of that I'm not surprised to see the Z11 Plus scoring well, Zalman do an excellent job on their cases

Thumbs up

I own this exact case, have had it a fair few months now, switched out the side fans for better and also fitted a fan controller while adding a bottom intake and extra top exhaust, all blue LED fans. My Tunqi tower is a pretty large cooler and in this case there is plenty of space, for the money it's a really good feature case, as mentioned with the ties behind the mobo cable management is easy in this case and the added power extension is very handy, thou I would say now fit that cable before you do anything else or your have minor issues later.

My only gripe thou small is the front panel USB3 I have to route them out the back onto the motherboard connections, I like the case much better than my old one by a long way, I got mine for £45 with P&P it offers as good a set of needs as many £70+ cases and if you buy one your be more than happy with the case for the cash you paid.

I would feel it not only deserves VFM but also a bronze award it's well laid out and you can get plenty inside clean and tidy, it's main downfall for many looking at it is it's front looks, I prefer mine on it's side with the drives popping out over the desk, so I can get inside without the need of moving it an inch.

I think the aesthetics are good, looks a bit like Darth Vader.. I would remove the 80mm fans though & not even bother to replace them. Plenty of room for a home server setup, 5 in 3 hot swap in the front, fill the rest full of drives - nice.

Yea i have one of these will show it on the rig gallery soon , I have 4 of the zalman led fans inside with a led antec on front with a 7950, i reversed the fans on the side. I think you can fit a second 2.5" hdd in optical bay area(didn't read to check if said :P).
Overall a good case for the money if you like the looks the Z9 has the same chassis bur toned down looks.

I really like the look of this, all of these lines create a really attractive looking case in my opinion.
