Experience: 3 years


Affordable Lots of room Nice blue Led lights
Top panel is difficult to remove for the first time
Great looking and functional case. Lots of room and nice cable management.

Experience: 700 Days

Decent Case


Looks nice, fans are quiet, temperature display, great for cable management
Has many places where dust can come in, fans don't spin that fan or push that much air.
Kinda like a poor man's dream case. It's pretty good and doesn't have too many flaws.

Experience: 3 Years


Easy to clean
nice LEDs
quiet fans
easy customization
Had this case for three years now and I still love it. The open mesh side looks great if you want to add more LEDs for some colour pop. All the fans are quiet and do their job well. It is easy to clean everything. I am able to get in between every crack of the case. The front panel comes off easily so you don't have to worry about breaking it when cleaning.

Experience: 2 Weeks


-great price
-looks nice
-good air flow
-4 front usb ports
-no usb 3.0 port in the front
-power button feels a bit cheap which really bothers me but it's mostly personal preference
Great price for a very good case

Experience: 60 Days


looks, airflow, size
panels can be a little hard to put back on
i like this case, it looks great and works well. i would recommend it to friends

Experience: 1 Years


Great price, nice temperature control, good size
No dust filters, not most cutting edge design
Overall a fantastic case for the price. Well worth it.

Experience: 1 Years


Price, Looks nice, Good Cooling
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. I do hate MIRs though...

Experience: 2 Years


For the price:
+Good build quality
+4 front USB
+Simple but functional fan controller
+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
+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
+Power button feels cheap
+Reset button poorly designed
+No front USB3
+Front audio jacks have poor signal quality
+It is EXTREMELY difficult to remove top panel
+Front "Z" obfuscates airflow for front fan
*Scroll down for a TL;DR.*
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 great steal. Also of note is its roominess, allowing for both airflow and large graphics cards, and sufficient cable management.

And those are its strongest selling points: The fan controller is not really necessary; it is a single channel controller capable of only controlling a few fans at once. You're going to either replace it with a better fan controller that can control more fans at once (rendering the free fan controller a moot point), or if you don't, it probably doesn't matter much to you at all and you would have been just as happy if they didn't bundle a fan controller.
Same with the thermostat. There is no practical use for it, and I personally have it disconnected. You are going to be monitoring core temperatures, as that is what matters. Case temp does not. Core temps fry CPUs/GPUs, case temps do not. Now, it's niffy, and if you want it for that sole reason, then by all means, fair enough.

Onto the problems. The back PCIe brackets are simply sheets of metal attached to the case, and once you twist them off, you have no way to reattach them, so you are left with a big gaping hole in the back. Which leads to dust.
The top and top-rear fan slots, which are the most used, don't have fan filters, which is ironic considering that the other two fan slots, front, which has airflow obstructed by the "Z" and bottom, which doesn't even come with a fan, do. So more dust.
The side panel is a massive entry-point for more dust. Lots of unnecessary meshing leading to the side being basically wide open; no fan filters there either.

The HDD mounting mechanism is also pretty bad. It would of been better, and probably cheaper, if they had opted for a regular, traditional drive bay. The problem is that the mounting mechanism present in this case leads to HDDs being able to vibrate. Vibration is bad. Vibration kills HDDs.

There is also no front USB3.

The reset button is poorly designed and the power button feels cheap. The power button slides around in its slot. The reset button is so narrow and has such a far travel distance that it becomes more difficult than necessary to use it. I have to use a single finger and press into it a *fair* bit of a ways. But those are minor grievances.

The top panel is EXTREMELY difficult to remove and poorly designed. The manual doesn't do a good enough job showing where the tabs are. Expect to break some of the tabs holding the top panel to the case if you take it off more than once or twice.

There is also some sort of a weird rattling noise if you have active fans installed where there is mesh. It is more evident in some slots than others. The top-mid slot seems to be the worst. It can be really annoying, especially if you are trying for a silent build.

The headphone/mic jacks have poor signal quality. I am not sure how to describe  it, but it seems that they degrade the signal quality by producing static/interference. It feels lossy and sharp. I am a bit of an audiophile, so I notice it, but it is not incredibly evident and is easy to miss. I only realized several months in, noticing that I found music played from there to not sound as crisp as elsewhere, and then plugging my headphones into the backport on the motherboard and having it come out crisper. I have never experienced this elsewhere, not on cheap Dell school comps, nor any of my home comps. If you are not an audiophile, you probably won't care.

All in all, this is a good case, especially performance wise (airflow), and has good build quality, all while looking good (subjective). The major drawbacks are the back PCIe brackets cannot be remounted, it's a veritable dust magnet, the HDD mounting system causes for HDD vibration, having only USB2 is outdated (although there is a USB3 version), and the mesh makes weird rattling noises if that kind of stuff is an issue for you. There is also an issue with the headphone jack signal quality.

Depending on who you are, this may be the best bang for the buck cases out there, depending on pricing.

Great Cable management room!! Looks good.
Great Case for a gamer or average user. Price is awesome.

Experience: 3 Months


Qualité de fabrication, espace, ventilation efficace, qualité visuelle, fan controller, afficheur de température
manque d'information sur le démontage des panneaux suppérieurs et avant.
C'est le meilleur boîtier de moins de 100$ que j'ai acheté à vie. Zalman nous offre une excellente facture et un beau travail d'ingénierie. Je le recommande à tous, même pour un premier montage, vous devrez par contre porter une attention particulière lors du démontage des panneaux suppérieur et avant pour éviter de briser les attaches en plastic.
Boîtier solide, léger et visuellement très intéressant pour un prix très abordable même à plein prix.
