Aerocool X-PREDATOR X1 Black vs Zalman Z11 Plus..

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So i need your help guys, i can't chooso between these two cases.. Aerocool X-PREDATOR X1 Black vs Zalman Z11 Plus

1.Aerocool X-PREDATOR X1 Black ( http://www.aerocool.com.tw/chassis/pgs/pgs-b/137.html )
- I would put 7 fans in this case. ( http://www.deepcool-us.com/Product/WIND_BLADE/ )
- As i have read, this case isn't the highest in build quality, and there are other pros in this case.

2. Zalman Z11 Plus ( http://www.zalman.com/global/product/Product_Read.php?Idx=476 )
- This one has a pretty high build quality, but i can't put as many fans as i can in Predator.

My main goal is solid cooling, and a good case.

I recently bought a Z11 Plus HF1 which is basically the same thing but with red led fans instead of blue.

It is being used for a spare rig. I like the look of the exterior and everything. But. It is such a pain to deal with, trying to take off the front panel I was scared I would break it. Then, I don't even know how to get the top panel off but I think it includes removing all of the wires for the front panel connections too. Wire management is a challenge, even after making sure the small amount of wires I do have in this case right now were zip tied getting that side panel back on was worse than trying to overpack a suitcase. T.T

When I was reading posts in the Z11 Plus thread I saw some people were accidentally breaking clips off for either the front panel or top panel, which after trying to take the front panel off I can definitely see how it could happen.

I wanted to love this case for the spare rig since my bf has it. I am ready to just find something else to replace it with.


just my 2cents.gif though. Good luck with whatever you choose!
