Zalman Debuts Two New Z9 Cases

The company is offering the Z9-Plus base model and the Z9-Plus DIII, which will ship with a 2-channel fan controller and an internal digital thermometer.

Both cases are virtually identical with the Z9 mid tower cases that have been offered for nearly two years, and offer three 5.25-inch slots and five 3.5-inch drive bays, one of which can be used to install two 2.5-inch devices.

The cases include three 120 mm fans, positioned with blue LEDs behind a mesh grill on the front, back and side. Buyers can choose to replace the 120 mm fans on the back and side with a 140 mm version. Prices are expected to start around $50.

    Not too fond of the oh so common rectangle shape. For me its got to have a curve or two, something a little different than the box design.

    The Vento 3600 looks great, using it right now. Unfortunately its got terrible cooling characteristics.

    give me a big box with standard screws for cheap and i'm happy. no plastic, nothing proprietary, no fan control and temperature display.
