Gigabyte rolled out he GZ-F2 and GZ-F5 series entry-level ATX mid-tower cases (pictured below in that order). The two feature essentially the same chassis, measure and weigh the same at 180 x 420 x 380 mm and 3.3 kg, but differ with design of their plasticy front panel. The GZ-F2, which is available in all-black and black+silver, features a smoother front than the single ridge that makes up GZ-F5. The two are made of 0.5 mm-thick SECC steel, and ABS. Featuring three 5.25-inch drive bays (one of which has an ODD cover), one external and five internal 3.5-inch bays, the cases are equipped with just the one 80 mm rear fan, and provisions for an Intel CAG 1.1-compliant side-panel fan vents. Expect the two to occupy sub-$30 price points.
