Pros: Cool and quiet with good cabling options

Cons: None at this price

I bought this case to replace an aging Antec P180 and although smaller and not as well built, it was a dream to build into. Zalman have thoughtfully provided plenty of space behind the motherboard tray to hide cabling and also punched out many small loops from the tray to zip tie the cables neatly in place.

There's a dedicated SSD drive mounting on the back of the tray too which keeps your system drive out of sight.

The fans are quiet and two of the four are controllable with a small thumbwheel on the front of the case.

It also has a built-in temperature sensor with an LED display. It would be nice if Zalman supplied some thermal tape to attach the probe at your chosen point, it wouldn't cost much.

Be aware that as supplied from the factory, the on-off switch is not connected between the front panel and the lead inside the case that goes to the motherboard pin-outs. This caused me to believe the on-off switch was faulty and I only discovered the cause when I removed the front panel to fit an optical drive.

All in all, a lovely case for a gaming rig (there's even provision for watercooling) and it keeps my overclocked Q6600 and GTX660 nice and cool even after hours of BF3.

Highly recommended and a steal for £45.
