Making a budget build for my friend and he can't decide between the zalman z9 plus or the zalman z5 plus. In my opinion the z5 plus looks better. Can we have your opinion. Thanks!

I meant for the case. How much of that are you prepared to spend on the case?

It might be worth looking at the lower end Corsair cases or maybe something from Antec. All depends on what sort of look you're going for though.

The corsair cases offer a bit more class I feel.

I just recently picked up the Z9 off newegg for 49.99 so far i really like the case it has nice black interior,cpu cut out and hidden wire managment.You can mount the drives where the cables and power cords are facing oppisite side of case for clean look.Power supply also sits on bottom.Case has good air flow also good for overclocking.
I think the main difference of mine zp+ is side panel is different and it has a temp control and fan speed control.My vote goes to the z9+.
