Zalman Z3 Plus Reviews

Cheap, yet awesome!

Posted

Pros: Cheap, Good look, has 4 prebuild fans, built in fan controller is nice, a lot of space for cable managing, supports long graphics cards, Front USB 3.

Cons: Prebuild fans are bad (but they are quiet though), No side fan slot, front and top covers greatly reduce airflow to the fans. Very tall.

Note - I got the Zalman Z3 (Not Plus, but they are almost the same except the side panel)

Amazing for the price. But you cant have everything.

Pros: Many fans, looks just awesome, lots of useful features.

Cons: The front plate seems easily bendable, so are the side panels. Thick filters in front.

My first PC build, and this is the case I got.

Basically every fan but the back one has a filter on it, but the front plate has a weird foam all over it that functions as a filter. Though the fans seem to do their job, I fear that they may not be reaching their full air-pulling potential, given the (relatively thick)...

Pros: Looks, Features & Size

Cons: Thick Air Filters & Weak Standard fans.

Josh's Zalman Z3 Plus Review. The Zalman Z3 Plus looks to be stacked with features from first glance, but upon building & using the case the features slowly fade away and you're left with just a chassis. I spent a while looking for a new case to replace my old and worn out Antec 300. I looked low and high from a price point of $50 to $200, The Zalman Z3 Plus was the once case that throughout the whole search I had my eyes on, and for just $59 it was a total steal. The case is amazing, I have seen so many cases throughout my searches but I feel this is by far the best looking case I saw. One major thing that stuck out to me were the 4 fans; that came standard. These fans are 'Horrible'...
