4 out of 5 eggsHot Case!

Pros: Style and Design coincide to produce a great case... more than enough real estate to satisfy at least 95% of users.
Attention to detail, excellent cooling, hot swap drives, hard drive docks, ample USB support... the list goes on and on...

Cons: The only reason this case did not earn 5 eggs was the fact that the power button melted and some wires charred . The unit was replaced without any problems through Zalman. I owned a GS1000 (4 yrs) previously and this GS1200 just builds on that foundation. The only caution I would add is this.. if you pack the case, that is if you fill every bay with hard drives and blu-ray/dvd players the case gets heavy fast! DO NOT rely on the carry handles built into the case side panels... eventually they will pull out if you transport your case to your buddies on a regular basis. If you don't plan on moving it frequently you should have no problem.

Other Thoughts: Anyone wishing to own a case that earns affection should consider the GS1200. It has cooling solved through either fans or liquid cooling options. My old GS1000 ran cool with stock fans accompanied by a Zalman cpu cooler (9900) and the GS1200 should make ice cubes to boot!
My experiences with all things Zalman instills total confidence in the brand.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this case

Pros: Hot swap, tons of space, great cooling.

Cons: Dont like how I had to feed one of the USB's outside the case and plug it in the rear.

Other Thoughts: Does anyone have any idea why the side panel 200mm fan plugged into CHA_FAN2 only spins at 440RPM's?

Is this normal?

1 out of 5 eggsWas great.. until it caught fire.

Pros: Awesome design, great ideas with hot swapping drives. AMAZINGLY good airflow.

Cons: About 10 minutes after I put it together and turned it on smoke poured out the opening at the top of the case. The ground/power wire connected to the eSata port at the top is improperly shielded and melted quite quickly. Not only did that cord melt, but it melted cords around it (it's packed tightly with the usb cords) and it melted part of the case, plus it charred the DVD drive just under it.

Other Thoughts: It's a great case if it doesn't burn to the ground.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsThis case is ginormous

Pros: Great case tons of features

4 swappable drive bays

lots of fans for great air throughput

Cons: fan controls are inside the case, should have been outside to be more convenient.

the internal cable for the front mounted USB3 ports is a usb A plug and not an internal mother board usb3 plug. So you have to run the cable out the back and use a back usb3 port to power the front ports

LED lights in the fans are very bright and have no dimmer controls. If you intend to have this case in your bedroom and can sleep with alot of lights you will have to swap the fans for non LED ones.

Other Thoughts: all in all 4 stars the cons are annoying but little things.

The case does what they say and more. Highly recommend.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's Black & Blue thats it!

Cons: this look's good and has some good features if they were functional? I first ran in too problems when I tried to mount the feet the rear foot mounted fine , but that's not the case for the front foot I jiggled around with the front for a half hour ,I looked close and found the holes where not tapped, so I did the next best thing I drilled new holes and used lag screws. Then I went to install a drive into one of the hot swap bays and the latch broke, I need to call zalman on this for a replacement . Then after finish installing the rest of my drives in the hot swap bays , I decideed this hot swap bay was mislocated for functionality so I moved the back hot swap panel to the upper bay so I don't have get out of my chair to swap bays. then I moved on to side mount fan door , the fan shroud was poorly fit it let blue lite leek between the door and the shroud. So couldn't stand looking at that so I removed the fan shroud and dremeld the stand offs so the shroud fit tight to the door. The case has non removable ease tight screws to hold the doors on but then again on my case the top screw would not tighten no matter what I did. Other these aforemention problems the case is a great buy ifm you can engineer aroud the quality issues.

Other Thoughts: Buy this this case if your as haddy as I'am.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fantastic case. All the fans in it run extremely quietly, especially the large 200mm fans. Plenty of room.

Cons: It would be cooler without the LEDs. LEDs are the blinking, scrolling text of this decade.

Other Thoughts: Just FYI only the bottom 3 drives are hot swappable. The other 3-drive bay does not come with a hot swappable back plate. You can buy the back plate separately, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice case!

Pros: Lots of air flow. Front, side, back, and top fans. Quiet too. Lots of room to work. Running a Gigabyte Sniper 3 MOBO in it and there is room for the Noctua NH-D14 Cooler since the side fan extends out from the case instead of inside it. Lots of options, hot swap bays. Good cable management.

Cons: Only complaints are the feet screw into plastic and so you have to be gentle and the heat sink cut out on the back was off by an inch for my MOBO so I had to pull the board to install the cooler. Cost is a little high but you are getting a lot.

Other Thoughts: Looks cool too! Put a Corsair AX1200 PSU in it and it fits fine. Plenty of room for expansion. One more thing, the front USB 3.0 cable has to be routed out the back of the case and plugged into a USB port instead of a MOBO header. Would have preferred the header but it works.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This case is excellent for those who want a bit more. It has 6 hard drive swap bays behind the 2 front fans which you push to open and close. Get the extra panel if you need it no biggie for me got one. It also has another entry on top of the case for another hard drive and supports USB3 as well as 3 extra USB's and eSATA. This case also supports liquid cooling systems, if you have money to spend buy it I doubt very much you will be disappointed, it has tidy cable management and buy a descent power supply for this case so you do not leave yourself short on connections. Overall for me this case caters to what I want it for. This case is big and will be heavy, once you put all your hardware in as I have done. Imagination will go along way with this case.

Cons: None for me :)
