Anyone with Zalman H1 case ?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I'd like to ask a little question, since Zalman cases aren't very popular on this forum. Are there any Zalman H1 owners here ?
I'd like to establish a club for this really neat case but I don't wanna be the only one.
Just for visitors and guests, here's what H1 looks like:

It's a really neat case with design similar to Corsair Obsidian 750D and huge amounts of space inside. It also has some cool (n' quiet) features like automatic ventilation system and fan panel which lets you shut off your case fans and make it completely silent.

@mcdoubleyou how are you liking your H1 ?

I love it and like you said it has tons of room inside. I never used a full tower case before so maybe that's why I am so impressed with it. My previous case was a Z11+ and I was really hapoy with it too, but with the H1 I didn't even have to do any effort to cable manage it cleanly and even with a pretty big cpu tower cooler installed there is about 50mm clearance between it and the side panel. Also tons of room for watercooling as you can install I think up to a 280mm rad with push/pull at the top where the automatic panels are and another 240 one in the bottom. One of the nice things is that you can make it run really quiet when onder light load and close the front and top panels and open them when you need the extra cooling. The included gpu support/ fan mounting bracket is also a very nice feature, as well as the sata/sata power splitter.

I never thought of using the vga guide for an additional intake fan for the cpu... Does it really help ? Also, I see you've got a bottom fan, I used to have one myself but it was making quite a lot of noise even though it's a silent fan and it was running on 7v adapter.

Yeah, I had 2 120 blue led fans from the Z11+ left so I figured why bot use them right tongue.gif

The plastic screw-like things those secure the top panel to the case body come out very easily. Same with the same plastic screws those secure front panel to the case body. If you pull the panel with a very small force it just opens. I am wondering if it's only my case where those panels come off so easily or it's the way it's supposed to be (in that case how to secure the panels so that they don't come off).
Either this is ridiculous or I am stupid. How come the panel comes off so easily from case body, why would you just not use metal screws and screw them properly so that the panels stay solid on their place. The left and right panels are pretty good though as they have typical screws not this plastic pull and push things.

It does come off easily, I don't think you need to screw them, once they click they stay on.

I just applied for replacement/refund. As I had faulty case, let's hope the store won't make problem.

honestly I'm looking to sell this case and get sth with good airflow cause this is horrible for air cooled high end components.
I was pleased with this case running 3570K + 980 with 60hz display but now that I've got 4790K and OC'd 980Ti + a 144hz monitor (uncapped fps) it just can't deal. the front intake hardly moves any air at all, and the exhaust fans can't cope with the heat dumped from the card.
looking at cooler master mastercase or nzxt 440 now.
