4 out of 5 eggsGood case for a standard build

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus HF1 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Heavy case. Can fit a good 10,4 inch gpu in it. Black on black.

Cons: The fans bearing gets weak rapidly. (Runing at 40% of speed for a year) The panels are a bit hard to slide.

Other Thoughts: I do not really recommand it for the actual price (C$119) I got it for $C85. But this is a really nice case under 100$, will last forever.

I own two of these and they got the same Pros and Cons.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case...USB 3.0

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus HF1 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: I'm using this for a fresh build. looks very spacious. I probably shouldn't be writing this until I'm finished, but I do like what I see so far.

Cons: The only think I was not made aware of was that the USB 3.9 front side ports use a 9 pin header, which th mobo I got did not have (though it had them onboard). Frustrating but nothing a PCI card can't fix, or just covert them to 2.0 with an adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat airflow

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus HF1 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: The case has great airflow and a bunch of nifty features such as the HDD cooling and the extra space for adding more fans if needed. It also has top mounting for liquid cooling which is always nice. The side window is great for looking in the case if needed. The LED's aren't bright which is perfect because I don't want it lighting up my room.

Cons: The Space for a video card is kind of small, given that most cards are under 300mm, my 280x fits but I have to insert it sideways to get it in the case and able to mount.

Other Thoughts: I caught this on sale but even for the price. This case is great. You won't be let down.

4 out of 5 eggsGood cooling, good looks, difficult to work with

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus HF1 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very impressive looking case with tinted window and pretty lights. Airflow is good- lots of fans, with room for even more. Cable management is solid, plenty of space behind the motherboard to route cables, with one annoying flaw I'll mention in the cons section.

Cons: There are some significant design flaws with the usability of this case. The aperture behind the motherboard intended for routing the CPU 8-pin power connector turned out to be too small to fit my connector, once the motherboard was installed over top of it. This meant I had to temporarily unseat the motherboard just to route the cable properly.

Removing the front panel is intended to be a toolless process, but involves forcefully yanking some soft plastic grips out of holes in a way that I worry will degrade them over time. Instead I use pliers to squeeze them out gently, but it's still rather inconvenient,

To adjust the top fans you need to remove the case's top panel, which turns out to be remarkably frustrating process involving fishing around in a long quarter-inch crevice to undo some latches you can't really see.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst case I've ever built in.

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus HF1 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Looks? After having it for a few months it looks so corny and I went out and bought the corsair 450D.

Hidden SSD slot.

Unique HDD slots

Cons: So limited. There is so much unused space in this case it hurts. Somehow it supports 2 140mm fans up top but cant fit a h100i in it due to clearance issues.

Second, the top and front panels are so incredibly hard to get off it makes you question what the hell they were thinking. I wanted to add my own fans to the top, but there was so many issues with cords not giving enough leeway and space I said screw it. I would be afraid to take the top and front off again, those plastic stubs will break from repetitive use.

Cable management is non existent. The room behind the motherboard is just not enough. Putting that door back on was a task within itself.

Airflow in this case is not the best either. It's not the worst out there, but it definitely is not the best.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy it unless you don't care about the cons and want it for the looks. It's got decent LED red fans and that's about it. I totally regret getting this thing.

4 out of 5 eggsgood case

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus HF1 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: quality case. plenty of fans, plenty of room. nice style.

Cons: top of case has fins for a fan so stacking objects on the case like a modem, or router won't really work. power button and reset are on the top front so every now and then my cat jumps on them.

Other Thoughts: I got this case in a combo deal and was pleasently surprised.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent Case

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus HF1 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Great looking case with plenty of fans and front fan has dust cover, window is pretty cool

Cons: The audio jacks are metal and a bit hard to use though not impossible
The USB 3.0 ports on the front of my case were bent and completely unusable

Other Thoughts: I'm sure the bent USB 3.0 ports is an easy fix with a pair of pliers but it shows perhaps a lack of quality control and after 2 weeks I have not heard back from customer service.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good.

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus HF1 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: The case looks nice and has some cool features; looks like it will do nicely as far as cooling goes (will still add at least 1 fan anyway). I asked a relative what he thought and his response was along the lines of, "I'm afraid it will rev up and take off at a high velocity".. it does look rather like a fast car.
Also, dust filters on the front and bottom are a nice touch.

Cons: I was rather embarrassed that I could not open the case on the first go. I had to remove the face of the case to use both hands to get enough leverage to slide the side panels off. This failure is not for lack of trying, I just didn't want to bend the poor things by yanking on them so hard. I fixed this by bending the clips on the front slightly away from the side panel to provide less resistance when being pulled. They can now be removed without first removing the face.

Other Thoughts: There isn't much cable management room, but it's a mid tower so I was expecting much more than I got and I can certainly make due.
The case comes with room for a 140mm fan in the front, but only supplies you with a 120.. I find that odd. Every other case I've bought has come with fan slots that have the largest fan they can fit, with zalman generally being an aesthetically pleasing brand I would assume that they would fit as much LED power in there as possible, not to mention airflow...

4 out of 5 eggsGreat with caveats

This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus HF1 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Great looks, a ton of room, lots of included fans

Cons: Top Fan failed within a year, annoying to remove panels due to side fans, front facing tough to remove

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a mostly stock system I was building. It's worked great. The front facing is difficult to remove but looks nice. The side panels are a bit annoying with the fans but not terrible. The worst thing is the top fan failed inside of one year. Still good looks and my system could chill ice cream so overall very happy.
