    The last part I will talk about was the case, I chose the Zalman Z3 Plus case and I have to say, its a pretty good case. Its got plenty of room for longer graphics cards and comes with 4 fans - two at the front and two at the top. I managed to salvage a 120mm fan from my old case and stuck it on the back of the case, so now the case has 5 fans. Good case for the price I paid for it, although I wonder what it is better than the Cosair Spec-01 case I wanted - probably not but I'm still happy with it, I'm not gonna spend a lot of money on a case. Another thing I should mention is that this case does not make cable management easy (either that or I just suck at cable management), as you can see in the images, the cables are all over the place; my suggestion is that if you choose this case then go for a modular power supply.

    from completed build My First Build

    I'm giving this Case two stars for the following reasons:

    I guess it more depends on your Power Supply; non/semi/fully modular, where you shove some unwanted cables into the drive bays, for example, or try to tie everything nicely and not have that much cables loose or left in between components or just the inside of the Case. It's not the best when it comes to cable management. But I guess one must be creative for that matter.

    When I first used this Case for my new build, it was decided that it was impossible it manage the cables. But after I got myself a new Case for hating this one, and giving this to my younger brother, I started to realize more about managing the cables and the possibilities of making his build into this Case look clean, and I managed to do the job the best I could with a non-modular PSU.

    Fans are simply noisy... it's not that of a big deal when you turn your PC off at night, though, or whether one doesn't mind the noise. But they're bad, and maybe this Case fits for people who are on a budget or play on low-end, that one wouldn't heat his components that would force the fans to work at full speed, despite all the fans are not PWM except the exhaust at the back.

    The window is plain ugly aesthetics-wise. If anyone would take advantage of its aesthetic, then it's better for those who use short graphics cards, or even a stock cooler - something that doesn't block the interior of the side-window.

    Lastly, the front and/or top panel can easily break. The six stands in the front panel that are attached into the Case, the bottom right one actually broke. Not only it's hard to take the front panel apart, but it can easily break. Same goes when I tried installing the Optical Drive.

    The build quality of the case is very good. Metal panels and a heavy plastic front panel. Not a very showy case, but cost effective. The fans that come with the case are pretty aweful, but there are 4 of them. Definitely order at least 2 good fans in addition to the case (case supports up to 5 fans, so throw one of the stock ones away).

    from completed build Gaming on the Cheap

    A solid case for the price I paid.

    Pros: - Looks good IMO (not too plain but not OTT) - Window size/shape allows you to see the good stuff and hide the mess - Loads of ventilation - Four pre-installed fans (two top, one front with blue LED, one rear) that are juuuuust quiet enough for me - Space for bulky CPU coolers and GPUs

    Cons: - Has a bit of a cheap feel in places - Chassis fan controller button doesn't work, and I can't control the fans via my mobo because the chassis fan connectors are only 3-pin, not 4-pin - One of the two front USB 2.0 ports doesn't work (although I bought a USB 3.0 hub so it's no big deal) - Doesn't offer much in the way of cable management, even in terms of places to fix cable ties

    Overall it was a decent budget option at the time. Perhaps just a bit retro now.
