Zalman ZM-T4 Case is Super Affordable

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 25 comments

Zalman has revealed its ZM-T4 computer case, and it is scary cheap.

Zalman has announced its new ZM-T4 enclosure, which while perhaps appearing like an ordinary mid-tower enclosure, it is actually less -- it is cheap!

The case supports either Micro-ATX or smaller motherboards and can house up to two 3.5" drives, three 2.5" drives, as well as a single optical drive.

The case's cooling is taken care of by a single front-mounted 120 mm fan, two side-mounted 120 mm fans, as well as another single rear-mounted 92 mm fan. Front I/O connectivity is handled by a single USB 2.0 port as well as a single USB 3.0 port, as well as HD audio connectivity.

Now for the scariest part. Prepare yourselves... The case features an MSRP of just €15.99, which, even if translated to U.S. dollars, is only $21.50.

    It looks good-too good for the price- and I assume it will be excellent for HTPC Build :)

    Did they glue it together?

    They have a ATX tower that is similar. I like the idea of a case not having to be so deep(they move the drives so that you can still install longer video cards).

    Funny I was looking at the atx one ZM-T2(but it has 2 x 120mm top fans. nice touch) because of how much less deep it is and saying they need a matx one :)

    Can it fit a Corsair H70 in Push Pull?

    No. It only has a 92mm fan on the back. If you placed it on the front(if it fit) it would eat up your video card space.

    The side seems to be able to take something, but who wants the rad on the side panel.

    Make it $30 standard price and $20 on sale and you might have a winner! Assuming the build quality is okay.

    Having used the T1 in 4 builds at work I can tell you the build quality is going to be pretty solid for its price, Maybe this is why the availability of the T1 and T2 (shitty glossy T1) is dwindling.

    I beg to Zalman, please come to India, we really need some good cheap cases. Really, you guys should be in India. Such good cheap cases would sell like hot cakes.

    Just come to India, we need some good companies.

    Are they losing money with each sell? It doesn't seem economically possible to produce and ship at that price. 92mm on the back is too small for 3x120mm pushing air in, you'll end up with an overpressure, which is good only if there are no leaks. Overall I can't complain about design. I'd go for a N200 but for 40 euro.

    You can't just tell us this without posting an image. This is Tom's Hardware after all.

    This looks very nice for a $22 case.

    Hmm. I hope this case is good for the pretty low price it carries.

    It's super affordable but is it super effective?

    For the price I would guess it will work out quite well(It has decent ventilation for a mid range system). You are not going to build a top end gaming rig in it.

    fyi - this is a huge case and only supports MiniATX and MicroATX motherboards.

    can anyone confirm if it can fit a huge video(like gtx660 or above) inside this case?

    If it's between 250-300mm long than you should be able to fit the GPU into the case (as far as Zalman quotes):
    That equals <=11.8" long.
