5 out of 5 eggsGreat case! Zalman has got my business from now on!

5 out of 5 eggsnot the most beautiful case, but it's functionality is off the charts

Pros: the delete between the HDD bay and the 5.25 bay is just brilliant, made for even the biggest graphics cards. cable managing is so easy to do, fits almost any motherboard you can imagine, fits even the heftiest of cpu coolers, there's nothing that can make this case feel anywhere near crammed on the inside. it's also very durable, despite the gpu delete space at the front

Cons: it's appearance is not the most gorgeous, not going to take any eggs off for this

Other Thoughts: if you are a logic brained person who doesn't prioritize looks but prioritizes ease of use and functionality, there is no other case meant for you than the Zalman Z5, especially for the price! It's a very well thought out case, Zalman really thought of the little things that matter with this product.

5 out of 5 eggsQUITE the Case

Pros: -It's unique to any other case, with its "aero" shapes and simplistic matte black metal design
-Bottom Mount PSU
-It doesn't really tell you in the description but the top of the case actually can hold two 140 mm fans, its already pre drilled for your choice of 120 or 140.
-cable management was a breeze in this case, it looks so clean without have to use hardly any cable ties +
-both sides of case come off +
-rear access to motherboard for install / uninstall of CPU cooling retention rings/ clips
-comes with two fans, leaves space for 4 more if you like.

Cons: I haven't one single complaint about this case. Most of today's cases are so helpful with your computer build it's not even funny.

Other Thoughts: -With little modification, i was able to actually install a Corsair H90 Liquid Cooling system with 140 mm radiator & Fan, in the top area. The fan had to go on top of the case and the radiator where the fan goes, because otherwise my motherboard was in the way of the install. However I simply sawed through each diagonal spindle forming the outher griddle style grate you see in the middle of the top piece of the case, so that they'd come loose and prop themselves up a bit on the fan's grille, so that the top case bezel and properly snap backinto place of the protruding fan. From a few feet away you can't tell i did anything, and i successfully fit a 140 mm liquid cooling setup into a case that is not rated anywhere for 140 mm :))

3 out of 5 eggsFlawed Manual

Pros: Cheap.
Enough space, if only barely for my Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, plus two fans. The large empty space on the case allowed me to easily work on the back of the motherboard when it was already bolted in. Also just barely enough space and holes to put the majority of the cables behind the motherboard.
I like the screw-less, on-rail installation for the 3.5" drives, 2.5" installation was also not too inconvenient, only 2 screws needed.

Cons: Someone else said this in their review but it bears repeating. The tower manual is incorrect about using the B bolts for the MB. They do not fit with the anchors. You need to use the A bolts. Caused some headache and wasted time.
Difficult or impossible to put PCI peripheral slot covers back on. They're the snap off kind that you discard.

Other Thoughts: They need to correct the manual or find out why the B bolts aren't fitting with the anchor. If they just fix that, I think I would easily bump it up to 4-5 eggs and recommend it to others. As it is, it caused me a great deal of frustration because I blindly trusted the manual and did not test the bolts before using them on the MB.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price!

Pros: Great for budget PCs, very easy to open up and setup.It also has USB and Audio Ports on top of the case.Also has LEDs for the Power & Reset button, and the front fan, not to mention also has HD audio!

Cons: If you push it with too much force, the power button will sink into the case, forcing you to open the case to get the button back in its place, though the reset button is fine.

Other Thoughts: If you have dreams of building a cheap gaming PC and use a case with lots of features n' style, this is the case for you!

3 out of 5 eggsDent???

Pros: Update to prior review. I liked it due to the quality, so I purchased a second one on sale.

Cons: The case came with a dent below where the PSU would be. This caused the scre.w holes not to line up. There were NO damages to the shipping box so that means this damage was done BEFORE whoever placed this into the box. This damage is blatantly visible. I am upset whoever did this to it made no attempts to fix it.

2 stars off for poor product care

Other Thoughts: I hammered it for about 15 mins, being careful not to damage it further. I forced my PSU into the area and tightened the screws as I could.

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for the buck!

Pros: This case is amazing for the price. I was not expecting much from the cheapest case I could find, but when I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised- fans included, drive mounting rails, cable management, standoffs already in place, the list goes on.

Cons: The drive cage should have been centered so that you can plug in your sata cables on either side, as it is you have to take off the back panel to do so. Not a huge problem but the only con I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I have bought many cheap cases over the years, this one is by far the best I have seen. Would highly recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: Tons of room, lots of space behind the board, included CPU Power extension, tooless hard drive install, both fans are super quiet. Fits all my hardware

Cons: Top panel is a bit wobbly but nothing to dock an egg for.
For some reason the top has a filter on one side but not the other fan slot(weird). But I wasn't filling the front fan slots so I took the filter from the front and taped it to the top fan slots and removed the foam filter from the top.

Other Thoughts: It easily fits my build with plenty of room and great cable management.

My Build:

Mobo: Intel DP35DP
Memory: 8GB DDR2 800mhz
PSU: Corsair CX500M
Hard Drives: 2 500GB Laptop Drives
SSD: 1 Samsung 840 Series SSD
CPU: Core 2 Quad Q6600
Heatsink: Some random Zerotherm Heatsink
Fans: 1 OCZ 120mm fan
2 Rosewill 120mm fan
1 white Zalman 120mm fan (included)

Would I recommend this case for someone on a budget?
Yes I would! Whole heartedly!
