Owned for a year. Really good case. Will fit just about any graphics card.

Presonally didnt use the 2 fans in the roof as it was overkill and the fans in general are functional but not amazing if u want silence.

Great budget case for the money. Had many Zalman cases in the past and all been great value

Can you elaborate on the fans (and the fan controller) in this case? I read some reviews and some say they're quiet, some say they're loud... Also, does the built-in fan controller use normal 3 or 4-pin fan connectors? I am wondering how easy it would be to replace the fans...

I bought the XClio Blackhawk because of the fan controller, but the fans are loud and the connectors proprietary so you can't replace them...

Thanks for any insight you can provide

Purchased, thanks OP

Comes with 4 fans preinstalled. That's good for £26. Hot.

I've just built two rig's using these cases, I really like them, sturdy, window, loads of fans and nice external connection layout platform at the top of the case.
I plugged all the fans, (less the front 2 wire LED one) into the mobo and control their speed through BIOS (for quietness).
Great case for the money, they both provide much better airflow and lower temps than my larger Z11 case with the same components.

I have bought this case in white around april time for around £30 and it does the job. It has enough space even for tri-x 290. Worth the money.

Get them whiile you can, with Zalman going bankrupt in November I doubt there will be anymore produced.

Gone to £36 already

Usually dispatched within 1 to 2 months?

Just saw that myself? Very odd

Is this better than the silencio case?

Now £36.95

Why don't people read posts above. Still at deal price of 26.99 sold by Amazon. See simplyjimbo simplyjimbo[mod]'s post above.

I can only say good things about Zalman. Premium build quality at an affordable price!
And I'm not usually this generous

Nice price drop, heat added!

Would a sealed water cooling unit fit in this case? Not very good with this sort of thing
but need a new case and this looks nice.

Got one of these as part of a pre-build from Chillblast. Very good case in my opinion.

Thanks, ordered 2 as my current cases don't have front USB.

When is this likely to arrive, based on the "usually dispatched between 1 and 2 months"? cheers

As a complete noob debating over trying to build myself a gaming pc, would this make a good buy to kick me off?
Hmm the Z1 seems to have better reviews than this and is the same price, well 10p less

Good point, from what I can tell. The Z3 comes with more fans and the USB's are at the top instead of at the front like the Z1.

So I've gone for the Z1 instead as flubit compare this one.

They offered me £23.60, so I've ordered.

I ordered with Flubit because it came out at £24.14 and the delivery is 3-5 days . Never gone wrong with Flubit.

Bought for new pc build, incredible case. good find OP

anyone else flubit-ed this and still waiting for it to be dispatched?

Mine has been dispatched. Went to cancel it and couldn't - changed my mind. Oh well

Mine's still waiting, but I'm gonna cancel.

Z1 is not good for me as it has not LEDs. With regards the Z3 plus, unless i am mistaken this only lights up at the front. Anyone able to confirm pls?

Ordered 6 days ago and has been dispatched by amazon. Great deal!

Mine got dispatched yesterday.
Went on Amazon to check and there are still 4 left.

Flubit still shows awaiting dispatch, but customer service have said it's been dispatched but there's a glitch in the system, and can't give me any kind of reference... This is so frustrating as I'd just order it from Amazon now it's in stock. Never using them again.

Hi Can anyone with this case tell me if I can remove the HDD cage? Even if its not meant to be or designed to be is it screwed in place or riveted? cheers
