This case is quality, comes with 3 blue LED fans (front/side/top) with a fan at the back, has enough room to add in another fan at the side/top and base.

The fan controller controls 2 fans i believe and works fine with the temp never going above 40C even when playing PS2, highest temp it has reached is 39C but overall it keeps it very cool with the temp on average being 30C and idle 27C.

Ideal case for when i want to upgrade the guts.

Looks nice and performs well, also comes with haribo :)


Rather Good

Just got one of these as part of a configured system & it's rather good. Sturdy, super quiet (even with the fans running) and it looks kinda cool. Well worth the

dan 2013-03-21

Fantastic case

I had been looking about for a new case for my PC since it overheated like a beast. I've had this case now for about a month and my word does it stay cool. It's basically like a fridge. Inside there is plenty of room for you to fill up and the layout allows great airflow. The fans supplied with the case are very quiet, much quieter than my last PC. Also the ability to toggle fan speed is great, although I mostly just keep it on max setting since the fans are almost silent. For

R. Lindsay 2013-03-06

Stunning case for price

What can I say that the other 42 reviewers haven't.. This case is absolutely amazing.
Plenty of fans for superior cooling, tons of space for even the largest GPU's and ample space for cable management.
An amazing service from overclockers too, ordered on monday @ 2:30pm and got it the next day :D
All in all I'm very pleased with the case and the service.

Matt Rodrigues 2013-01-28


I bought this case days ago and received it in 3 days the case was well packed and survived intacked.

When surveying the case I really liked the case it's build quality was good and the mesh is thin yet strong. The only thing I have to knit pick about the case is that the cable management space is realatively small.

The case has 7 fan slots and comes pre installed with 4 fans which glow blue :)

Ben Enos 2013-01-21

Awesome case for the money

This case looks great! It is easy to setup and has all the features of those twice its price. Has good Cable management and all the fans are just an added bonus!

Highly Recommended!!!!

Iain 2013-01-03

Top Value

Considering the size, look, fans and price... you just cannot complain about this case.

Plus the fans run very quiet, even with the fan controller cranked all the way up.

One of the best all in budget cases!

liam 2012-12-27

Great case

This case is just fantastic, everything running nice and cool and I can hardly even hear it APART from the side fan, makes a humming sound because of the metal grill makes it harder for the fan to suck the air it needs. Easily fixed by turning the fan speed down with the handy fan controller!. Love this case highly recommend

Michael 2012-12-22

Just amazing

This case easily beats some of the more expensive cases out there. The price is great for the quality of case that you will be buying. With four stock 100 and 120 mm fans to give great airflow. Overall the case is brilliant and a must buy for a budget or a serious PC gamer.

Nick 2012-12-11

Top Stuff!!

Great delivery time - Ordered on a Saturday afternoon and arrived on the following Monday morning!

The case itself is great quality and plenty of room for everything inside. I got it as part of an ongoing upgrade to my current system. Plenty of fans so keeps my low end system cool.

I am very happy with the purchase and the service from Overclockers is fantastic. This was the best case I could find in the price range (that was in stock!) and I recommend it to anyone looking for a decent case with good extras for the price.

Sean 2012-10-11

Zalman Case

couldnt believe this when i got it, what a case. Plenty of room inside for cable management etc. Plenty of room for fans etc. Great case for the price. And 4 fans included! Epic bananas service from overclockers, as usual.

Kris 2012-09-07

brilliant case

as most of the reviews before me have said this case is cheap, cool and beautiful. from a performance and budget standpoint perfect enough said, just remember to hook up the power button extension or prepare to look like an idiot if you are here to write your review and you did this feel free to laugh at yourself and join the club.

Luke Dust 2012-06-26


Fantastic case, quite large and spacious inside so plenty of air flow, in comparison to my default case I had as standard from dell.

Comes with 4 large (120mm) fans pre built into the case, perfect for cooling and I can't hear any of them at all.

My only criticism (hence the 4 star) is that it isn't really happy with default dell PSU's or Motherboards. not enough length on the PSU cables for it to stretch across the full case, and there is a lack in molex adapters which the front panel's temperature sensor works off (as does one of the fans.)

My fault I probably should have looked into that, although would of been nice to see the connectors specified.

yasin 2012-06-24


For the price no other case can match zalman! Great value for money and I would definitely recommend for a gaming case!

Andy 2012-06-17

Truly, Amazing.

I Got this a couple of days ago along with a new 560 EVGA and i have to say.... wow. Let me list you why.

- Looks: It is a real good looker, smooth finish, blue fans on the front, top and side, a nice see through mesh case so i can see my clean crisp motherboard and cable tidying.

- Price:

toon_mad 2012-06-10


How can this tower be so cheap? I have payed over

Anthony 2012-05-08


I've had this case for almost a year now and still looks as good as the day I had it. No problems with any of the fans or anything. Deffo worth the money I paid, if not more!.

Only things I would mention are what a few people have already said and that is..

* Could do with a little more room the other side for cable management.

* The bendy metal pieces cannot be reattached so make sure you only remove the ones you need to.

Leo 2012-04-05

Errmmm... AMAZING

What a brilliant case, outstanding goods especially for the price on offer. However dropped by 1 star as the instruction manual tended to be a bit vauge at points and the semi-mesh vents tend to let in a lot of dust. Anyway a must buy for anyone in need of a good cooling case.

Gary 2012-03-01

Excellent case

Excellent case for the price. However please be aware that they ship without the power button connected up. Ensure you check this before trying to turn your system on for the first time. Saves you thinking your PSU has died like I did initially :)

Amin 2012-02-24

Zalman Z9

I bought this case and i'm very impressed. The fans are silent and plenty are provided. I have absolutely no complaint what so ever about this case. Very good vaule for money and it looks very slick.

Andrew 2012-02-13

Everything and more for such a low price

I have had this case for coming up to 2 months now and all I can say is how brilliant it is and for such a low price how much stuff they managed to cram in here.

Plenty fans - front, rear, top and side
I found that it wasn't too necessary to have the side panel fan attached so moved that to the top of the case where it created an additional glow from the blue LED's.

All black interior and decent cable management slots, could have done with slightly more space round the back to route everything but managed anyway. Can't complain really for price. Also this will easily fit large graphics cards, I have a Sapphire Radeon 6850 and fits no worries.

Overall I reccomend this case, great for an enthusiast gamer or just the casual user who wants a good looking system.

p8ntballer 2012-01-28

Zalman Z9+

For the money, its a brilliant buy. Worth double the price, i bought extra blue LED fans, looks brilliant, keeps the working parts very cool

Steven 2012-01-17

Brilliant Case

This is a brilliant case all the included fans are blue LED's (Apart from the rear exhaust fan). The case looks amazing and the temperature display and fan controller are a nice touch on a low cost gaming case. The only problem is that one of the fan controller adaptors has broken but ive still got the other fan connected.
Overall a very good case well worth the

Andrew 2012-01-05


love the features at the given price point
*loads of features for a good price
*good build quality (few sharp edges)
*great styling and even better usability
*great customizing options

*the removable expansion brackets at the back bend to be removed but can not be reinstalled to my pleasent surprise after i removed the wrong ones prior to installing my graphics card
*no front usb 3.0 (not that i use usb 3.0 that much to require front ports)

great case for the price, the cheap bendy expansion bay brackets are just annoying as EVERY other case i have had has the screwed in ones
and the case power button not being connected?
well i read the instructions before anything else so ignore these ignorant people

will recommend? yes

Zalman Z9 Plus Tower Case

Ive been after a new case for my new build, its got it all fans , looks , 4 usb front panel and temp display , the wires were not conected for the on/off switch , but i checked after reading the reviews from here so no probs, its a really nice case.

Darkflame 2011-11-29

Outstanding product


sean 2011-11-26

Great case for the price

Cracking little case for the money. If you plan were you are going to route your wires and cables it wil make the build smoother.

I do have one complaint to make however! It took me a while to figure out why the power button would not switch on the PC at the finish of my build. It turned out that the cables had been dissconected behind the fan controller. Very annoying and one to watch out for.

Mike 2011-11-23

Very good case

Ben Quince 2011-11-18

Quite impressed...

I bought this as it seemed good value for money, and overall I have to say I'm fairly impressed with it.

It has nicely placed cut outs for cable management, comes with 4 fairly quiet fans including a fan controller, a nice (but maybe slightly unneeded) LCD temp display, some fan filters on the front and bottom intake fan positions, and it looks fairly decent in general for a 'gaming' style case. I also noticed this case has space for an 11" graphics card, and had adequate space for my Thermaltake Frio CPU cooler.

The only negative I've found with the case is the PCI slots on the rear of the case aren't replaceable, and the metal construction of the case isn't quite as solid as my old Coolermaster Storm Scout.

Overall though I'm very pleased with the case, it has decent aireflow so produces some good temps and looks pretty nice sitting under my desk.

For around

Steve Ward 2011-11-05

Great case

High quality case at this price. It looks great, the black interior with blue LED fans complements my black motherboard, black sound card and blue graphics card.

Initially it felt a bit light, but once all the PC components were installed it was fine.

A particularly nice feature over my previous case is room behind the motherboard to hide all the cables, so everything looks neat and tidy through the window.

It's also very quiet. The loudest fan by far is the CPU cooler, which I have routed via the case's fan controller and an additional resistor to get the speed and hence the noise down.

Cooling, with all the fans and ventilation, is very good. Actually, I removed the side window fan, partly because this was making a slight buzzing noise at the stock voltage (fixed intially with a resistor) but mostly because it doesn't really aid ventilation much and there's enough blue light from all the other fans in the case (including my CPU cooler) without needing this one.

Ryanstein 2011-10-01

Amazing Value

Well what else can i say ?
It does exactly what it says on the tin and for an unbeatable price in value compared to other competitors. Durability and practicality is just amazing , can't faulth this piece of kit. Key features for me were ; Cable managment , flashy case with fan controller/ tempreture , fans came included. The member of staff who helped me choose this case was also very specific for buying a budget gaming case , he nailed all the key factors i wanted! So yeah ... If you're ever in doubt ask for Phil ;P

David 2011-09-29

Value for money

got this case about a month ago for my new budget build very good case for the money the temp display is really handy. couple of drawbacks the top slot for the cpu power cable gets cut off by the motherboard can just about squeeze it in and there isnt much room behine the motherboard tray for cables as you struggle to get the back on but overall for the price you cant beat it i have an a70 cooler fits with no problem (cant get a fan on the side panel though) and also have a HD 6950 ( 9" ) fits in no problem. Very good case

Jon P 2011-09-14

Great case

Bought this for my new build - looks swish, lots of room inside to work with, good quality fans and lighting pre-installed. Very happy with it.

Simon 2011-09-07

+ Temerature display.
+ Fan controller.
+ Enough space for even biggest GPU
+ Amazing quality
+ Very nice design

Paul 2011-09-04

Solid case, quiet and great value

Zalman wasn't my first choice for a case when building a new home/gaming PC, but I am pleased that I bought it.

At under

Loughlin Gethins 2011-05-16

Excellent case, great value

I bought this case the other day and I have to say it is excellent! It is pretty inexpensive and excels compared to other cases in its price range. Keeps everything nice and cool, comes with a lot of fans and looks the business. Would definitely recommend

RemAngel 2011-05-06

Excellent Case - Excellent Price

This is probably the best case I have even bought, especially at the price. Zalman could easily charge more and it would still be worth it.

The case feels solidly made and well designed.

Useful features that I appreciated

- Both sides removable and held on by thumb screws.
- 2.5" SSD mounting point behind the motherboard.
- 5.25" bay with adaptor that can hold 2.5" SSD disks.
- Space behind motherboard for routing all cables.
- Cutouts on motherboard mounting plate for access to back of processor, and for routing the 12V power cable.
- Rubber mounting "wheels" for HDD disks to reduce vibration.

The only thing I had to change, because I fitted a Antec Kuhler 620 CPU watercooler, was to move the fitted fan, on the top of the case, to the second slot on the top as it was blocking the radiator on the cooler.

The only thing I think that would improve it, possibly in the Z9 plus plus, would be support for USB 3.0 on the front of the case.

rob 2011-04-06

awesome case

this case is the best ive had so far . having gone to this from an antec 900 which was very good . this blows that away . reason 1. price unbelieveable value for money for a brand name. 2. it came with 4 case fans antec 900 came with three lots of space to work inside to. 3 the fans r very quiet and do the job well. controller always handy. 5. well made and well designed with the hd bays easy to work with.. i would rate this an 11 on a scale of 10. but as we are on a scale of 5 then i give it a 6 if i could..

Ubergeek 2011-04-04

Nice one !

First impression was that the standard of finish is very good & that all case parts fit together well. Plenty of room for all but the largest gfx cards or CPU coolers, & the internal finish has been done with care. A pleasant layout, good quality cabling & no sharp edges.
The build went easily, though I recommend that some thought is given to cable routing before fixing down the mainboard. I liked the HD mounting system. Simple, crisp, & dampens noise very effectively.
Cables were all tidily hidden in the ample space behind the mainboard tray, helped by the plentiful loops for locating cable ties.
The side fan was noisy, though the noise disappeared when it's speed was reduced below 80%. All three other case fans were quiet.
I'd recommend this case highly for any mid-range build, over many more expensive cases, & the money saved could be put toward a modular PSU, to help keep the inside tidy.
5/5, because little in this price range that can match it for quality & performance.

Jason 2011-03-27

configure your own

chose this case option with my "configure your own system"
as it is my first dedictated gaming sytem all i can say is that every component i have chosen, i could not be happier with. this case is big enough for expansions and the fans are outstanding and there brilliant to look at. the service from over clockers was amazing! they had PC built in about 8 hours on request as i had a tornement the next day!
with my success last night, most of the people i know are telling me that there going to buy from overclockers on the future.

brilliant job guys!!

Scott 2011-03-26

Good for a budget build

This case is very nice. It's visually appealing and has all the features of more expensive prices, but for a lower price.

The only thing stopping me from giving this case 5 stars is that the case is quite noisy. I only have the fans that came with it, and even on the lowest speed, you can definitely know it's switched on.

Other that though, it's awesome. Plenty of space inside, looks good outside and even includes 4 fans and fan controller. What more could you ask for, for

Jeff (Aura) 2011-03-24

Pleasantly Surprised!

Bought this to house a budget build for my daughter. Cannot believe how good this is for under 50 quid!

Has all the fans you will ever need, plus you can add more or swap out for 140mm fans if you wish, virtually silent when on lo-speed and not too loud on full .

Cable management is excellent with plenty of cut-outs and a decent void-gap on blind side of case to store excess cables or spare plugs/sockets ... there is also a hidden bay here for a 2.5" drive!

There is also a cut-out to facilitate the easy installation of a backplate for CPU cooler.

Easily houses long GPUs with room to spare (installed a 4870).

Comes with plenty of screws and stand-offs and tool-less HDD dampers for easy-fit.

Loses one star as I'm not happy with the mesh on the side, it's too open and dust can ingress ... fans have filters on them but this is kinda redundant because of the meshed side.

The power switch is too easily popped out from it's socket if you press too hard I noticed.

Recommended? Yes.

John 2011-03-24

Great case

Case is great for those who want to build your first rig or to have some sort of buget gaming build like myself. Iv'e got nothing bad to say about this product. If you are looking for a nicely priced mid-size tower case. look no further, has at least 11inches of space for those big graphics cards, and the cable management is so easy to do with this case, even a novice like me can do it. Buy it now :D

chaaruzu 2011-03-20


For the money, you can't ask for more. It's very, very slightly on the noisy side. However, I could easily accept this as it has more than ample cooling and features. It looks very nice personally, it definitely doesn't have a cheap-ish looking finishing touch, an undoubted bonus.

All in all I'll give this case a 5/5, simply because it's an excellent blend of price/performance!

big d 2011-03-17

very very good case

brilliant case for the money added three 140mm fans (front and top) so now have a total of six fans connected to the fan control on the front with the rear single fan on full. (used akasa fan splitters which are sold on here.) great case to play with ,loads of room ,and keeps my i7 860 nice and cool with an artic freezer 7 pro idle 28-29 full stress 58-59 clocked to 3.2. highly recommended

woods96 2011-02-28

great case

this is a very nice case for a very nice price, it has ample room inside for graphics cards. it also has a great looking front face with a fan controller and 4 usb 2.0 ports. the reason i am giving this case a 4 is because of the noise it makes as it only has a 2 channel fan controller which doesn't even make that much difference but overall a lovely case that i would recommend to anyone!!!!!!!
