New Zalman Chassis Has Top-Mounted HDD Dock

TechConnect reports that South Korean company Zalman plans to launch a PC chassis aimed at enthusiasts sometime next year. Called the GS1200, the chassis will be the successor to Zalman's GS1000 and feature a top-mounted HDD docking station similar to the one used on Thermaltake's all-black DOKKER.

Currently the details surrounding Zalman's upcoming chassis are rather slim, however based on images supplied by the company, it will sport an all-black coating and feature an I/O panel consisting of one USB 3.0 port, three USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA port and two audio connectors.

On the storage front, the GS1200 will have four exposed 5.25-inch bays and what seems to be two drop-down front panels-- each equipped with a fan--that enable easy hard drive swapping. It will also feature three pre-installed fans at the very least--one on the side and the two previously mentioned fans that are mounted on the front.

So far Zalman hasn't officially announced the chassis or provided pricing and availability, however we expect to see the GS1200 model next month during CES 2011.

    Wow thing looks like a tank. I have an HAF 932, i wonder if its worth getting this instead?

    if it's easy to install/upgrade hardware in than that would be one hell of a case, looks damn sexah

    Really nice case, my only grip is that they should change the usb 2.0 ports to all usb 3.0 and maybe add a second esata port. other than that its great.

    Personally I am not a fan of the current trend of oversized bulging cases ike this. It has nothing to do with the size of them but how ugly they look. I much prefer the sleek, rounded lines of the Silverstone cases so that is where my money would go.

    i wouldnt give up my antec 902 for this.
  • steiner666
    would prefer the front intakes to be 120mm, but not bad overall.

    Finally a top mounted HDD. Hope the price on these chassis is not too expensive.

    A word to the uninformed, Thermaltake has that feature for the v9 blackX edition for several months now.
