4 out of 5 eggsDecent case

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: This case has nice lighting, and a decent amount of space inside.
The rear exhaust fan is pretty good quality.

Cons: The stock intake and top mount exhaust fan are absolutely terrible, you will need to replace them for any decent gaming rig. They are relatively loud, and ineffective in their only function, moving air. There is also a piece of metal that prevents a straight line to the screws used to mount your GPU. You have to go from an angle, and this can be really obnoxious whenever you need to remove your GPU.

Other Thoughts: Try another company.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: The case is amazing, simply put.

I've had this case for something about 2 years now, and I still love this case.

The summer after I bought it I moved and I dropped my computer *really really* tough, on concrete. It fell with a thud and I was convinced that everything in there was completely trashed. I didn't think *anything* survived that drop.

To my shock, everything still worked- and the parts I'm still using from that drop STILL work. It's safe to say this is a really really sturdy case- the only thing damaged by the fall was the case itself. Multiple plastic pieces on it broke off or cracked, and the metal itself took so much of the force that it's very very hard to close this case up.

But everything inside still works perfectly.

The case before this one I was using a really small case that had *horrible* ventilation- my computer was legitimately BSOD'ing from overheating. It was terrible. After I got this case none of that was an issue- the first time I turned it on after moving all my parts over I thought I broke something because it was so quiet.

It's still really quiet- one of the fans (not sure which) buzzes when I first turn on the computer for about 30 minutes then it's whisper quiet the rest of that day- that fan is just loud and needs replacing is all.

As far as space goes, I highly reccomend this to people making their first build, or people who prefer a modest sized build...

Actually, ignore that. I'd recommend the Z12 Plus for that. It's actually the next case I'm getting- I loved this case so much, to replace it, I'm getting the Z12 Plus. Even my friend I told this case about to loves this case. It's just a phenomenal case.

Cons: I can't think of anything specifically "bad" about this case. It can be a bit annoying to clean but that's about it. Mainly because mine is broken, though. I'm not a fan of the side panel though.

Other Thoughts: This is overall a great case that I definitely recommend- and that's all there is to it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Great size, comes with 5 pre-installed fans(2 include LED lights), good looking, includes tray to place an item(flash drive, phone, ect), fixed issue many users had when the usb 3.0 on the front needed to be plugged into the motherboard from outside of the case, very sturdy

Cons: May be too small for bigger builds

4 out of 5 eggsGorgeous Case...If It Didn't Arrive Banged Up

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Beautiful case. It is on the large side of a mid-size case, and it the ability to mount five fans, plus the design looks like it will have amazing air flow for cooling. I was happily surprised that some of the major flaws that I read in reviews before buying the case were fixed apparently (thanks Zalman!), such as not being able to hook up the front USB 3.0s internally without an adapter (you would have to route it out through the back and hook it up to your motherboard that way)...unfortunately I bought the adapter already anticipating this issue.

Also, the front plate was not an issue to get off at all, like many people were complaining about...but that might be because a piece of plastic holding it to the front had broken off inside the case before I opened the box (one reason why only 4 stars).
Overall, the few minor issues do not take away from the case, but with the scratches, dents and broken bits out of box, I can only give it 4 stars (five if these were not present).

Cons: See pros about comment on broken bits on front plate. On that note, the window on the side was scratched up and very very dusty on the INSIDE (so not a shipping error), and there were some dents on the side cover of the 80mm exhaust fans, on a part covered in the Styrofoam (again, not a shipping error, but a QC error).

Other Thoughts: I haven't received my components yet, so I haven't done a build with this case yet. I figured I would let people know that Zalman fixed the two issues of the USB 3.0s and the front plate that many reviews online complain about, so they don't go and buy an adapter they don't need, like I did.

4 out of 5 eggsfunctional

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: spacious. many options for fans and cooling. looks realy cool. interior has space for good cable management behind the side panel

Cons: odd shape may not fit in tight spaces, nor more uniform rectangular desk cubbies.

Other Thoughts: the front/top facing usb three options are not the most desirable. you have to run the cables from the front panel out the back panel into the true usb3.0 ports. causes the interior of your pc to loose some of that clean aesthetics when trying to manage cables. if you dont do this you will have 2 useless blue ports on the front of your machine

4 out of 5 eggsn/a

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Lots of space, big case, nice fans, USB 3.0

Cons: No USB 3.0 internal header

Other Thoughts: This is an amazing case but one of the USB 2.0 ports is dead and there isnt a internal 3.0 header. It needs to be routed out of the back (i ordered an adapter). Other than that, this case is perfect!

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate: Almost 2 years Later

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very good looking case. Reminds me of a B2 stealth bomber or a Black Bird.

There is enough room for a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo to fit perfectly

Plenty of ventilation options. You can install up to 7 fans. I love that it has 2 120mm slots to exhaust air through the top of the case....(although that's for the most part standard today)

2 SSD mounting options.

Cons: Now that I've had time with the case for almost 2 years I've seen the best and the worst of it.

Although it does have cable routing/management options, there is VERY LITTLE space between the back of the motherboard tray and side panel to fit all of your cables there. I would really have to pack the cables and push down on them with the side panel for me to be able to replace the side panel, THEN I have to secure the side panel with the thumbscrews in the back just to secure it and make sure it does not pop out. THIS SHOULD NOT BE, for me, it's a huge flaw since I was looking forward to the cable management when I bought this case.

The second flaw, is the front panel.....it takes WAY TOO MUCH force to be able to snap it off. Often times I would think that I broke something while taking it off. Also, it takes too much force to snap it back on.

Third flaw, the USB 3.0 front panel DOES NOT connect internally to your motherboard, you have to route the cables through the case, to the back of the case in order to plug in to two USB 3.0 ports in rear I/O panel of your motherboard in order to use them. The problem with that is that it causes clutter and blocks your video card if you have the card installed in top PCIe x16 port and if you want to remove it you would have to disconnect the cables first. HOWEVER, there is a work around...just purchase a USB 3.0 external to internal adapter. But with the price I had originally paid for this case, I should not have to.

Other Thoughts: All in all, it is a decent case, although I think I may have grown out of it as things seem cluttered inside my case.....despite doing my best at cable management. Perhaps I need a full tower.

Anyway, the case is very nice looking and it has served its purpose. Despite its flaws, it still served me well. If you're looking for a case that looks nice and are not going to pack it to the brim with components, then I recommend it.

If you do have a lot of components and will have to do a lot of cable routing/managing, then look elsewhere. Perhaps a full tower or a Mid-ATX with better features is better suited for you.

P.S. I would give it 3.5 eggs if I could
