    Zalman is working on two new micro-ATX cases designed to keep things roomy, yet compact. The ZM-T1 and TM-T2 (pictured in that order), made it to Overclockers Ukraine, which took them for a spin. The two cases differ with front design, and are otherwise identical. Zalman did away with a vertically stacked drive cage that adds to the length of a case. Instead, it created points along the front-inner wall along which two 3.5-inch/2.5-inch drives can be mounted. Also included is a detachable drive tray, which mounts two additional drives (3.5-inch and 2.5-inch) along the plane of the motherboard. A single 5.25-inch bay is located above the motherboard tray.

    Ventilation includes provision for a front 120 mm fan, an included 92 mm rear fan, mounts for two 92 mm fans on the side panel, and two 120 mm fan mounts on the top panel. The cases are made of SECC steel frames, and ABS plastic front-panels. The two measure 425 (H) x 170 (W) x 350 (D). Front-panel connectivity includes HD audio jacks and USB 2.0/1.1 ports. Expect the two to be priced under US $40. Find a complete review at the source.

    Unveiled ? They've been selling these for awhile now. And "under 40" is a very vague way of saying "its 10 bucks". Which tells you all you need to know about these.

    They look pretty decent for what they are.

    these actually LOOK good to some extent (they also look cheap cause they are) but what i want is just a GOOD aluminum stealth case (no fancy edges or lights) and good airflow and rad support. can't find it damnit

    I do like the interior chassis design and size for a micro atx build, also maybe just enough room to water cool. :) However the exterior looks cheap and tacky to me. No c/m options on the motherboard side either, but I guess this case is just considered for a budget build. What a shame Zalman.:slap:
