Gigabyte Intros GZ-P5 Plus Case

Gigabyte released the new GZ-P5 Plus, an ATX mid-tower case for gamers on a shoestring budget. Measuring 180 x 420 x 380 mm, the GZ-P5 Plus is larger than the original GZ-P5 released about an year ago. It is also lighter, at 3.2 kg (compared to 3.5 kg of the original). The case is made almost entirely of SECC steel, with the front made of glossy ABS plastic. Internally, the case uses the PSU-on-top layout. The motherboard tray supports ATX and micro-ATX cases. Drive bays include four 5.25-inch and five 3.5-inch. There's only one fan bundled with the case, an 80 mm exhaust on the rear panel. There's no word on the pricing.

The GZ-P5 (the one it's being a "Plus" of) is $18 over here, converted. And everything being sold here already has a price premium, so that $18 most probably meant ~$14.

Wow.....case design is truely in a dry patch. Anything "new" is either overkill or uninspired.

80mm fan? Really? I can't even remember the last case I saw with an 80mm fan. Even for low budget, I consider this fail.
Motherboard tray supports ATX and micro-ATX cases
A case within a case? Lol

It isn't hinged; that's just the way they staged the picture.

The started designing at the bottom, then got bored and slapped a 10 year old top half on it.

I expected more crazy cases.
