Z9 USB 3.0 Midi Tower Case - Black

The front mesh bay cover allows cool air to enter the system, while the dust filters prevent dust build-up inside the case. A total of seven (Z9, 5 for Z9-U3) fans can be installed in the case. This will help to introduce and expel air effectively from the case, resulting in lower operating temperatures. To keep the PSU as cool as possible, the cases have a bottom PSU configuration. There are also cut-outs to allow for tidy cable management. The interior of the chassis is coated black to provide a sense of unity and elegant design. The server-type tool-free HDD mount trays allow for easy HDD installation/removal and maintenance. All HDDs are mounted using anti-vibration rubber mounts to aid in reducing HDD noise. The interior has been designed to be spacious for easy installation and maintenance of various components, including graphics cards up to 290mm long. The front I/O module enables the location of the DVD-ROM and other components to be changed easily according to the required configuration. The Z9-U3 case has a built-in two channel fan controller for adjusting the speed of up to two connected fans. The ambient temperature of the case is shown using an LED temperature display. By controlling the noise and interior temperature with the fan speed controller, the system can be operated in the optimum condition. The side of the Z9 and the Z9-U3 are different on each other. The Z9 has a mesh cutout where it is possible to mount up to two 120mm fans whereas the Z9-U3 has a larger transparent side panel cut-out. This is ideal if you like to show off your PC! Space is provided on the back of the motherboard plate for installing a single 2.5" HDD/SSD. There is also a 3-in-1 tray that makes it possible to install an FDD / 3.5" HDD / 2.5" HDD/SSD.

Fantastic Value

Very good case - i used it for my first ever build, and was not disappointed!

Pros:
- plenty of fan mounts (5) - 4 of those can fit 140mm fans, all of them can fit 120mm fans.
- 3 fans included - the blue LEDs aren't to my taste, but i swapped the blue LEDs with white ones to match my theme, and now it looks great.
- good cable management (plenty of space to route cables behind the motherboard
- fan controller - whilst basic, allows you to control up to two fans with reasonable precision
- 2x usb 3.0 ports and 2 x USB 2.0 ports on the front of the case
- 4 5.25'' bays (1 is taken up with the front I/O ports)
- side window to admire your PC from
- it's big enough to fit large GPUs (i'm running a 7950, with about an inch spare)
- tool-less hard drive mounts
- comes with capacity to mount 2 x 2.5'' drives (one in the supplied 5.25'' adapter, and one mounted behind the motherboard)

Cons:
- one of the fans it comes with is not PWM - it runs at a fixed speed
- the blue colour of the LEDs isn't to my taste - if you're good with a soldering iron, then this can be changed.
- it's pretty huge (although that does mean good airflow, and easier to work with)
- the hard drive bays don't seem to be removable


Overall, i'd strongly recommend it as a cheap starter case. The only reason not to buy it, is if you're not too keen on its styling. From a functional point of view though, i have no complaints.
