Zalman is more known for it’s CPU and GPU coolers but also branched out into enclosures a while ago with their Z series of cases.  The newest revision is the Zalman Z9 Plus, full of features and low on price.  As is the style with cases these days, the PSU is located at the bottom of the enclosure, next to a fan cut out allowing some airflow through the bottom of the case.  It is roomy enough to take long graphics cards and deep enough for large coolers and even includes interesting mount points for 2.5″ SSDs.  Tweaknews would have liked to see thumbscrews, but as those are easy to pick up they did not let that point overly detract from a positive overall review.

“After examining the Z9 Plus chassis, I was very pleased to see that Zalman has addressed the vast majority of the issues I had with the Z7 series. Not only has Zalman improved cooling performance while still keeping noise in the acceptable range, they’ve given the interior a matching black finish for a uniform look, updated the aesthetics and added support for a couple of SSDs as well.”
