Z7 PLUS Case

With an already over-crowded case market, one must wonder where another high-priced Zalman case will fit into things. However, the Z7 PLUS is targeting the mid-range enclosure market with quality craftsmanship and some interesting features.

This case makes use of a trio of pre-installed 120mm fans located in the front, back and side. The back fan is your standard 120mm affair but front unit uses a blue LED while the side fan sports a manual control and LED that gets brighter as the fan speed is increased.

Zalman is also touting some other items which are normally reserved for cases in higher price ranges than the Z7 PLUS. Things like mesh drive covers, quick-install drive rails, pre-installed dust filters and support for 162mm high CPU coolers are definitely pluses though the interior looks like it's painted a standard grey. Unfortunately, little more is know about this case and we are anxious to see its interior layout.
