5 out of 5 eggsgreat little case

Pros: - external facing 5.25 bays
- Fan controller
- Price

Cons: - room behind mobo for cables

Other Thoughts: Great cheap case for my home ESXi host. Threw a couple multi drive hot swap mobile racks in, a super micro atx board, RAID cards and 92mm noctua air cooler. The two included 120mm fans are silent. I love the external fan controller.

I build more elaborate workstations regularly in the CM trooper and Stryker as its hands down the best case I've worked with, but those have a LOT of hardware in them and i need e-atx support. This case for a basic home gaming rig with just a few components and ATX is great

5 out of 5 eggsThe NAS case I have been looking for

Pros: 10 Usable 5.25 Bays that can be configured however you like... 6 Port Fan Controller Built in... VGA Support and fan included...

Cons: Depending on configuration airflow may be an issue... 16 SATA cables are difficult to manage but this is always the case...

Other Thoughts: I used this case for my FreeNAS Server

With little effort I installed 3 3x5.25" to 5x3.5" cages with fans along with a single 3.5" hot swap bay

15x3.5" Drives are running 24/7 between 18-34C

The VGA support and fan are a nice inclusion and is used to cool an HBA

If you are building a server an do not want to use a rack mountable case BUY THIS

4 out of 5 eggsZALMAN MS800 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case My take.

Pros: Cost. Light for a steel / plastic case. Extra MOBO stand-offs. The foot long CPU 12v Extension cable. The front panel cables are long enough, not found in all other cases. Good case for a lot of trayless HD drive cages.

The 120mm fans have air flow & rotation arrows cast in.

Cons: The need for the CPU 12v Extension cable, poor cable management. The top drive bay can be problematic for some uses because of the poor cable management. The flat aft panel gives no protection for peripheral plug-ins. This means that even more space is needed to be maintained behind the case to protect them. Only one 3.5” (floppy) drive cover (not used for floppy drives).

The 5.25” drive bay locking retainers (one side only) are only useful for holding things in place until screws are installed. They are inadequate for drive retention on their own. Rattle traps.

Other Thoughts: Removing the top cover is possible for one person, with the proper tools, but two people are better. One standard 120mm fan can be mounted between the metal chassis & the plastic top cover, at the aft mount point, without any modification to the top cover. To mount a standard 120mm fan in the forward point, between, the forward retaining tab for the metal grid should be shortened or removed. It appears that standard 140mm fans can be used between, with minimal modifications to the cover. Having none of those, this was not tested. This can be a boon for those that wish to mount a radiator in the top of the case, but don’t want to take up a lot of space inside the chassis with the fans.

The VGA guide (# 11) is a good idea, the flimsy execution is less than good. I plan to fill mine with fiber glass & epoxy.

The fan filter (# 5) is less than useful. Replace it with an air vent register filter, cut to fit. Tape it down, avoid putting anything between metal chassis & the plastic base contact points. Easy to remove base, four screws only, slide it forward, or brake off the four mid retaining tabs.

The CPU extension cable in most cases would be unnecessary if the vent in the lower center of the motherboard tray was replaced with an opening for the PSU’s CPU cable to take a more direct path.

I have yet to find a computer case, to use, that I have not needed to mod in some way in my builds.

4 out of 5 eggsPerfect for my needs

Pros: -You can actually fit 10 external 5.25 bays in this thing. The three "internal" 3.5 bays can be removed to expose the bays as external 5.25's. This was perfect for what I needed (a file server with several external SATA hotswap cages).

-I like the dust filter on the bottom, which makes cleaning the dust off the air intake fairly easy.

-Good construction, solid, airflow seems good, fans are quite.

Cons: -I cannot seem to get the fan control on top to work, I hook the case fans up to it, but the knob doesn't seem to do anything to the fan speed.

-Not thrilled with the top mount USB ports, but I needed all the front 5.25 bays and there really isn't any place else to place them without sacrificing a 5.25 bay.

-Power and reset buttons are a little too large, which makes accidentally pushing them more likely.

Other Thoughts: I used this case as a file server, so I didn't install any graphics cards, just a MOBO, lots of NICs/SATA PCI-X cards and SATA hotswap bays.

4 out of 5 eggsDescent case

Pros: Plenty of expansion bays for dvd drives and hard drives, interior fan that cools the ram very well, plenty of spaces for fans, sturdy, professional looking, cant argue with 2x usb 2.0 and 3.0

Cons: my build was (main components) asus m5a97 le r 2.0, fx 8350, 16gb corsair dominator, corsair cx750 and gtx 760 (4gb). this case is slim so there isnt the best cable management with the 750w psu (non modular), and the airflow is okay, i added a second video card and the case couldnt take it and the side was near blistering hot, i almost cried having to move my build to a new case. But i plan on using it for a family member and having a high end build with one video card and a modular psu...this case cant be beat.

5 out of 5 eggsWow, is this thing COOL!

Pros: Our customer needed a high-end video editing workstation, which meant lots of front-mounted ports and lots of expansion cards. He was also using an FX-9590 CPU, which requires water-cooling.

We were able to install two optical drives, two 3.5" card readers, two 3.5" USB3/1394/eSATA interfaces, an SSD, and a hard drive in the front bays with room to spare.

A fat Corsair H80i 12cm x 12cm radiator/fans fit nicely in the rear grille without interfering with other motherboard components or blocking airflow to the VRM. There is also ample room in the top for a 12x24 or 14x28 if you want an even bigger closed loop, such as the H100i or H110. Be warned; the top panel is a bear to get off, though.

The steel construction was very beefy and rugged, and the fit/finish of the whole thing was as good or better than anything I have ever seen.

The built-in fan controller will comfortably power six fans and adjust them all uniformly, so a user only has one knob that is infinitely variable (not just a two or three way selector) to twiddle and find the right compromise between noise and cooling. We used the three included fans on top of the two on the CPU cooler and they were inaudible even with the control turned all the way up. YMMV depending on how many and what fans you use.

HIGHLY recommended for high-end or complex builds.

Cons: It's a HEAVY booger, but that is to be expected with steel construction. That's the price of quality materials and sturdy construction, so no eggs off.

The box arrived looking like the shipper dragged it behind the truck all the way from California to Texas, and three of the four screws on the bottom panel had their heads broken off. That's a testament to the durability of the case components, since the screws broke and not the case parts themselves. We only had to replace the screws instead of RMA it for a new case. This was the fault of the shipper and not Zalman, so also no eggs off for that.

Other Thoughts: Like my title says: Wow this thing is cool.

This is an outstanding high-end case for the money and should be on the short list for any big build.

5 out of 5 eggsSpace, and bang for buck

Pros: Lots of space, 2 usb 3.0's and 2.0's on the front, good fan options. Many drive slots, easy installation of drives, PSU is situated at bottom of case, great airflow.

My cons section has a lot of words but they're minor overall and problems that can be fixed :)

Cons: In order to install another fan on the exterior ceiling of the case, you need to pull the top of the computer case off. And that was difficult, see my :other thoughts" if you aren't sure how to get the top off.

Mic and headphone jacks on case don't appear to work, but it's probably my fault.

The bar inside which is apparentlly there to hold mobile fans? Tried to unscrew it out and the phillips socket on both of the screws holding them in place wore out before i could get the bar out.

Wish there was screws and a setup to put a fan in the bottom of the front of the computer case.

Other Thoughts: I see a few people on here wondering how to get the top panel off so they can install another fan on top, I had problems with this when I had to do it as well.

The only way to get the top panel off is to pull it off, and you will have to pull with a lot of force, so much force you will be worried that you're going to break it. I ended up taking it to the local computer store to have them do it because I didn't want to break it, and they too had no other solution but to PULL it off, and it took 2 people.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased

Pros: Very roomy on the "business side." Adequate cooling fans supplied. Sturdy except for the inserts (see Cons)

Cons: The area under the motherboard can be a bit cramped if you're running a lot of wire, it takes a little bit of care. I don't particularly care for the "front panel" being on the top, just a personal preference. The bay inserts aren't very secure and tend to pop out will moving the case.

Other Thoughts: I ordered my CPU cooler (Corsair H60) when I ordered the case, if I'd notice the dual top fans (1 supplied with case) I'd likely have gone with the H120 double wide unit.
