Great size fits everything i need but might be a tad to big for some. Lots of fans with a nice pull and push format....with 2 fans sitting adjacent the CPU HeatSink. Would Highly recommend those looking for a great Mid Tower for Gaming.
having built many, many computers i cant really find anything bad to say about this case. I also really appreciate that this case has no sharp edges of which to cut up my fingers.
I absolutely love this case! I've used it for two builds now and I've yet to be disappointed. I would highly recommend it to any enthusiast builder. Installation instructions are easy to use, and the included hardware is ample for almost any mid-class application

Summary Very nice looking case with superb cooling , comes with 5 fans allowing very good airflow. The fans are quiet! USB3! The only downside is the back panel area seems too small for your wiring to run though, which makes it difficult to slide the panel back into place squishing all your wires together
Pros Looks cool, decent ventilation, cheap with MIR
Cons MIR, not as nice to build in as some
Summary I've purchased quite a few of these Z11s - and will probably be buying more. They are a nice looking case more than anything else. Airflow is decent, price is good with MIR, and everything you want will pretty much fit in here (GTX 780s etc.).
Pros Fair Size, Great Cooling, Hand Front USB 3.0 Ports, and a Calm Blue LED Glow.
Cons No Fan LED On/Off Button.
Summary Bought this in early September of 2013. Great size fits everything i need but might be a tad to big for some. Lots of fans with a nice pull and push format....with 2 fans sitting adjacent the CPU HeatSink. Would Highly recommend those looking for a great Mid Tower for Gaming.
Pros The amount of fans that can be put in, great airflow, looks fricken sweet!
Cons USB 3.0 doesn't plug into motherboard, and tight squeeze for 2nd power cord to motherboard, could have a few more hdd/ssd slots
Summary Overall this is a great case like I said great airflow, lots of fans, and looks super sweet. The second power cord (not the 24 pin) was a tight squeeze behind the motherboard as that input was at the top of the case and motherboard. The only thing I really didn't like was that the USB 3.0 connectors for the front do not connect into the front if the motherboard but has to be connected into the back panel wasting valuable back panel USB 3.0 ports. Loved this case and will use it again!!!
Cons -Case Fans use system controlled cables only not four pin connectors -Stupid method to put hard drives into the case
Summary Very nice looking case, sturdy, good airflow. I bought it on sale for $60 and honestly wouldn't pay more than that for it cuz while it does look quite badass i wasn't really impressed with some of the features. such as two of the case fans have to be connected to the motherboard with no option of just connecting to a four prong power connector, which was annoying in my case due to the fact that my motherboard only has two spots for such connectors and one is for the cpu heatsink. also having to put those stupid screws into the hdd then screwing it in again after putting it in is a stupid design flaw. All in all its a nice case but comes with some annoyances.
Summary it is an amazing case, doesn't vibrate, beware the 24 pin connector is a very very tight fit behind the motherboard tray, it can be done but its harder, and no usb 3.0 header so i would buy an adapter.
Summary i been using this case for 3 weeks now and im very happy. tons of rooms but the only thing i dont like is the fan on the side the one thats cooling the hdd i would be happy if theres a 120mm fan installed instead of 80mm
Cons bulky, loud, front panel and side panels are challenging to get off
Summary I think that the 2 80mm fans cooling the hdds is useless because lets face it hdds don't get that hot. CPUs, GPUs do. I know that there are already fans inside that part of the case, but that is just my opinion.
Summary MIR was rejected, but cleared up after phone call. Front panel was difficult to remove, have to use pliers, and instructions not too clear. Otherwise it's an awesome case, and it works well. 5 fans, 2-3 pins and 3 4-pin molexs. had issue as my mobo didnt have 2 chass fan plugs
Pros Beautiful Blue Many quiet fans Very cost-effective "stealth-bomber" look
Cons Front USB 3.0 ports don't hook up mid-board, they plug into the back like a flash drive would, basically just extending those ports to the front
Summary I absolutely love this case! I've used it for two builds now and I've yet to be disappointed. I would highly recommend it to any enthusiast builder. Installation instructions are easy to use, and the included hardware is ample for almost any mid-class application
Summary Wanted the cheapest case possible for a small gaming machine intented for games such LoL. for 60$ i was amazed by the content of the box. Surely the built quality and as high as more expensive cases, but you cant go wrong with it.
Pros - Good price after mail in rebate - Nice styling - Good ventilation with lots of places to install fans. - Dust filters - USB ports - Cable management behind mobo.
Cons - The USB 3 ports on case has to be connected to the back IO of the motherboard, not to the internal connectors. - Very hard to take the top and front panel off. - The cable management hole for designed ( i think) for the 8 pin connector is too small to fit the connector through.
Summary Very nice for the price you pay ($49 after MIR), but I don't know if I'll buy it for the full price.
Pros -looks really cool -has good airflow and lots of fans/spots for fans -quiet -cable managment
Cons -really hard to remove the front/top panel but not a big deal since i only had to do it once.
Summary really love this case, it looks amazing after i added lights and made it look how i wanted. also has lots of space for fans which gives it good airflow and the cable management also helps make it look better. really a unique looking case and i havent seen any that look like it and i love it.
Cons bad rebate, noisy, pieces broke off, hard to install
Summary 1) bad rebate service. I sent them my receipt photo copy and the upc cut out. They even scanned my documents and uploaded it on their website. After a week or two, they deleted my documents and said they don't have neither the receipt and the upc. $20 gone. very mad!
2) noise. I can hear the humming even when all the chasis fans are turned to low/unplugged.
3) the middle plastic piece of a usb port broke off and got stuck in my usb stick on first use.
4) hard to install. The back plate is in blocking the way to install water cooling. Wiring the front usb port to back usb ports is just stupid.
Cons lots of plastic parts, usb 3.0 pass-through instead of header connecter
Summary This case is reasonably priced and has a very unique look to it. I didn't want to deal with the pass-throughs, so i bought a bitfenix usb 3.0 internal adapter (sku 63940) which cost $10. Cable management was a bit tricky, but everything eventually fit on the motherboard side of the case; a little more clearance would have been helpful. It also comes with removable intake filters on the front and bottom of the case. Both are tricky to get at and could have been made easier to remove. For the price though, and the looks, this case is awesome!
Pros -Looks good -Price on sale or not is really good! -Good for budget builds -2 front 80mm fans are a nice touch to cool your hdd's
Cons Front can be tricky to remove, and if you want to install anything in the bays you have remove it.
Summary Good budget case comes with alot of stuff for the $$$ spent, you will not be disappointed in this case.
Here is a tip to get the front panel off. Place the case with the front panel facing upward,grab the slot at the bottom of the front panel and with a swift and firm tug you should be able to pop it off without breaking it.
Pros -Full of features (and fans) -Great for budget builds
Cons -CPU power cable was a PAIN to get through the hole on the top -Fans that come with it have a bad noise:functionality ratio
Summary I am satisfied with this case as I only paid $46 after tax and rebates. It has a great hard drive bay cooling system. The case looks like a beast or a transformer. Once you manage the get your CPU cable through the whole, you will be satisfied with this product. Hint, split your 8-pin cable in two 4-pin cables and put them through one by one. Expect to shed some blood while trying to get it through :p
Cons No Speaker Fan power connections Front panel USB3.0 connection
Summary This case has a lot of nice features, such as 5 fans included, easy access 3.5inch slots, anti-vibration, cable management, and power/usb/audio on top of case rather than front.
I was really happy with this case with a few minor exceptions: no built in PC speaker included, USB 3.0 ports are just extensions and have to plug in to your rear USB ports rather than direct to motherboard, and my biggest complaint is that the side fans and rear fan do not connect to motherboard, but only connect direct to the PSU - as a result I can not use my Fan Control software to control them. Only the front and top fans connect to motherboard.
Pros First off, this case is absolutely sexy. The side cowls make it look like a racecar, and the smoked side window is well placed. The case has a lot of cool features, but one that I really appreciated was how well it accomadated future changes to the motherboard. After my build, I had to put a liquid cooler on and there was a conveniently placed hole in the sidewall so that I could remove the current bracket without removing the mobo. They also have a very versatile and convenient setup for cable routing. Airflow is quite good through this case as well, especially with aftermarket fans.
Cons One thing I did run into was that I couldn't fit everything I wanted in it. The 650 watt PSU that I put in prohibited the use of a 140 mm fan on the bottom. Also the liquid cooling radiator prevented the use of a second fan of any size on the top. I suppose this comes with the mid ATX case no matter what though
Summary Overall great case ESPECIALLY for the money.
Summary You get what you paid for. Good quality, quiet and overall a very nice looking case.
Some of the negatives: 1) USB 3.0 plugs into the back of the PC. Would of lost 1 rating but it's ok. 2) Front cover was a pain in the rear. There are 2 latches inside on the bottom, on both sides. After both are unpinned and pushed out, then you have to be both the hulk and a surgeon to remove it without snapping anything else. By far the hardest frost panel I've ever had to open. 3) Only 1 back panel replacement piece; meh. 4) LED's are WEAK. I've owned 100+ LED fans and these are somewhere in the middle. They are VERY quiet (5/5); which makes up for it.
NCIX completed the order within 1 hour of my submitting it. Which is strange since I ordered it near midnight.
Shipping took less then 24 hours. However I live less then 100km away from the warehouse.
Pros 1.Nice looking and cool case LCD fans. 2.Pretty solid. 3.Good cable management and airflow
Cons 1.Be very careful when you remove the front panel,since the 1.Power SW cable is connect with the case. 2.The PW Cable was defective but after contacted with Zalman and file a RMA , Zalman quickly sent me a replacement one.
Summary All in all, I am satisfied with my order except I was a little upset when I noticed that the PW_SW cable was defective, but Zalman sent me another one soon after.
Cons two of 3.0usb are the worst design on the earth
Summary first of all , it took me more than a week to get the case since the day i ordered it.all of my other parts came in already so i had to wait for the case to build my computer. the two 3.0 usb on the top of the case extend another 2 usb plugs inside of the case which does not make any sense. very bad design! but to be honest the overall shape and the lights are cool
Pros Nice solid case with LED lighted fans. Lots of room for expansion.
Cons The USB 3.0 internal connector is not 19 pins for mobo.
Summary This is a very good solid case with fancy lighting. Not much to complaint other than the USB 3.0 connector. Cause it is an internal connection, should use the 19 pins for mobo. Instead it gives you a USB 3.0 female plug. What are they thinking !!!
Also one of the plastic mount for hard drive at the bottom is bended. Cannot be used. Very careless handling cause one of the bay useless.
If not because of the 2 problem, I would have rate it 5 stars. But I would still recommend to buy this case.
Summary A very good case. Often goes on sale, I snagged it for about $50. And it's great! Looks fantastic with a ton of LED lights, has 2 USB 3.0 ports and 2 USB 2.0 ports, and the whole case is just great. Buy it on sale!
Summary i got this case after 2 days, its a nice stuff. but what i want to praise is the Customer Service. very good guys and solved my many question, much better than the Google. google customer service is shit
Pros good case. Arrived intact. good packaging. Love the led fans (quiet too)
Cons the usb cables were a pain. I had to switch a fan or two to get ample airflow. Getting all of the cords to fit behind the mobo was a chore. The cushions to hold psu were poorly on and fell off.
Summary All around a good case. Some changes will be required for newer systems. One major Issue I found was the placement for the cpu power cord. You can run the line through but you have to run it through before you mount a mobo. I think if they could have placed it half an inch up there would be no issue.
Pros Looks, number of fans, watercooling, 2 removable covers, slot for PWM/water cooling ctrlr
Cons The USB3.0 ports on the top have to run through a cord internal in case to the ports on the back... kinda dumb but not that bad
Summary Great case, totally worth the price and i couldnt be happier with it. One thing though is that i wanted another blue LED fan on the open top slot and i couldnt find another one (had to be the same one cuz OCD) but i couldnnt find one at a reasonable price. When taking apart the case the front cover is on there SNUG... just keep tugging at it and it will come off. the clips are very robust and i doubt you will break it unless you try.
Bottom Line: BUY THIS CASE (specially cuz its on sale at $50 right now)
Summary I needed a new case for our computer. The old one did not vent very well...was 10yrs old!
The 5 fans work really well and are quiet. No more loud fan noises. Cables are now neatly tucked away and not all over the place. Lots of room to work with. Especially liked the ease of HDD installation on this case.
My only gripe is the front cover is a bit odd to remove.
Overall, definitely would recommend it and would buy it again.
Pros La case est super belle, elle a beaucoup de place. Il y a bcp de ventilation et il me reste bcp de place pour rajouter d'autres items.
Cons Rajouter une ssd est assez compliquer et elle est assez grosse
Summary Je trouve que la case est parfaite parce que son design est superbe, avec les LED bleu, la vitre sur le coté et le tout en métal. La case est facile à ouvrir et à fermer et pour le prix, je la recommande à tout le monde :)
Summary This case is pretty good and I'd say it's very nice for the price One thing that is really disappointing and that's the USB 3.0. the top USB 3.0 ports uses the motherboard usb ports. If you don't want the top usb ports using the motherboard usb ports, I recommend buying an adaptor
Summary This is my first CPU build and went with this tower for the look/modding ability and price. It has plenty of room inside and right now I have 7 fans installed on the case alone and it looks great. The only downfall I found was taking apart the front/top plates which allow access to the top mounted fans and any external showing 5.25 bays respectively. They are on there pretty snug and secure thus taking them off for the first time I was extremely worried about snapping something, I had to struggle with them, carefully, but got them eventually...after you get them off you realize they are made quite well and would be hard to snap anything. Aside from that, it looks great, manages cables great and my wallet thinks it's great as well (got it on sale and price match for 65$), would recommend.
