Zalman Launches the Z11 and Z11 Plus Mid-Tower Cases

South Korean company Zalman has now introduced two new 'high performance' PC cases, the Z11 and Z11 Plus mid-towers. These models measure 260 (W) x 498 (H) x 525 (D) mm, they weight 7.3 kg, and have a steel structure, a black paint job, and support for ATX and micro ATX motherboards, as well as for graphics cards up to 290 mm long.

Zalman's cases feature four exposed 5.25-inch bays, one 2.5-inch bay, five 3.5-inch drive trays with tool-free mounting, an acrylic side window, an anti-vibration rubber stand for the PSU, two pre-drilled holes for watercooling tubes, and four fans - one 120 mm spinner with blue LEDs in front, another one on top, a LED-less 120 mm model at the back, and two 80 mm fans on the side.

The Zalman Z11 includes an I/O panel with four USB 2.0 ports and has a recommended price tag of 69.90 Euro, while the Z11 Plus offers two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports, and costs 79.90 Euro. Both are expected to become available in about two weeks.

At first glance I thought it was a hybrid cm storm enforcer crossed-bred with a cm storm trooper.

Fairly nice for the price. Wish the pics would show the inside.

I like most of it, except that front grill, just looks like cheap plastic grading, would look nicer if they had done a metal grating.

'High performance' should mean high cooling performance. :rolleyes:

The top reminds me of Alienware's chassis.

It refers to a computer case, so I guess that's kinda obvious.

Those front ports remind me of the ASUS Vento 3600.

I actually don't dislike this. As Kurgan says, if only the plastic grills didn't look quite so cheap (and perhaps if the "cheeks" weren't quite so wide).

Not a bad lookin' case IMHO Surprised at the price too, usually Zalman charge's a hefty premium for their product's. Maybe their starting to realize that you need to be competitive with your pricing to make profit's :)
