I'd like one if that is available in my area. Gigabyte & Antec is too narrow for me.... ( only 7.28" & 8.07" respectively ). bartholomew a b ) Power supply June 27, 2012 12:50:17 PM Out of those three, the Zalman Z11 would be my choice. Also, Fractal Design Core 3000 would be a good choice http://www.dabs.com/products/fractal-design-core-3000-m... http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Fractal-Design-C...

The case is also bigger, making it easier to connect it inside. It looks good too. nikorr a b ) Power supply June 27, 2012 12:53:43 PM Review @ http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Zalman-Z11-Plus-... raktorn June 27, 2012 2:03:46 PM Thanks guys I also want to choose the zalman case but because of the 2 week delay it would add to my build i may get a different one. what would you guys suggest out of the other two? nikorr a b ) Power supply June 27, 2012 2:15:27 PM Antec. bartholomew a b ) Power supply June 27, 2012 2:41:59 PM Antec 300. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Antec-Three-Hund... randomkid a b ) Power supply June 27, 2012 11:28:01 PM raktorn said:Thanks guys I also want to choose the zalman case but because of the 2 week delay it would add to my build i may get a different one. what would you guys suggest out of the other two? Wait... what is two weeks compared to a lifetime of looking back & wishing you got the Zalman? mace200200 a b ) Power supply June 27, 2012 11:31:49 PM Well i'll just throw in that I really like it whens theres 2 front fans, I think it looks really cool, and HDD are one of the more expensive part of any build and extra cooling to them would not hurt one bit. raktorn June 28, 2012 8:15:03 AM using the UK dabs site could anyone reccomend any of the other sub £50 cases. so far im probably going to wait for the zalman z11. nikorr a b ) Power supply June 28, 2012 8:17:43 AM Its worth to get a better part. Don't u have another place that sells them? raktorn June 28, 2012 8:22:01 AM Well i want to get it all from dabs to save on shipping (plus dabs have £40 off big orders atm) i dont mind waiting too much though the case does look amazing in my opnion. bartholomew a b ) Power supply June 28, 2012 8:22:27 AM Can you buy from Scan.co.uk?

Get it here @ £5.00 UK delivery or wait, I guess. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Zalman-Z11-Performance-Desktop-... raktorn June 28, 2012 8:37:33 AM im waiting on an email back from from Dabs to see how long it will take if its more than 2 weeks ill go for amazon i think. thanks alot. nikorr a b ) Power supply June 28, 2012 8:40:58 AM Good luck : ) Can't find your answer ?
