Overall this case is a great bang for your buck. It has all of the components needed for a quality case and even gives you some extra benefits that you’d find in higher priced cases. Think Computers would like to award the Zalman Z9 Plus Mid Tower Case a 9 out of 10 score and our Editor’s Choice Awa
Overall, however, we feel that this case would make a good addition to any system. It is well designed, sturdy, and does a good job of keeping the system cool. Priced at USD 70, it is very affordable, and would also be good for those who are on a budget, but do not want to sacrifice temperatures or
The Z9 Plus is a terrific option if you are looking for a case full of nice features at a very attractive price. We can’t really complain about the “weak points” listed below because of its price. For its terrific cost/benefit ratio, we are giving it our Golden Award.
"It is definitely middle-of-the-road for thermal performance and build quality, but for its asking price no one expects any miracles. Fortunately, it has a few nifty features that make it standout amongst the rabble."

I really love this case, it's pleasing to look at, but also offers great cooling, and is a joy to work on/with. Overall great case, for an amazing price! I would have liked to see a dust filter for the PSU, but it's not that big of a deal, and the fact that one is included for the front intake fan (as well as one on the bottom, but I don't use it), is awesome! I'm so glad I have it because it does it's job at keeping dust out of my case! I've cleaned it a couple times now, but it only takes a minute and only needs to be done every few months (depending on how dusty your place is obviously!). The only other complaint is a lack of USB 3.0 ports (or at least a pass-through), but it's not the end of the world, and the fact that there's 4 USB ports is a life-saver for me, because I often have several peripherals and whatnot plugged in simultaneously.
There is a lot of room in this case for just about any type of build. I used an EVGA 650ti Boost and there was lots of space for it. The four 120MM fans are blue LEDs and are very quiet, even at high speed. The fan controller is a nice feature. The temperature monitor is rather useless as it just monitors the inside air temperature of the case but looks sharp. This case should be good for an overclocked system as air flow is very good with it's meshed front and side panels and multiple fan locations. Cable management is very good as I was able to route nearly all cables behind the motherboard panel leaving a neat looking build. Fit and finish are very good. Nice looking case. Too bad the front USB ports are not USB 3.0.
I usually always use CM cases but this was for my Father and he wanted this case purely based on the look. Fortunately for him the case is a pretty decent one. It is small enough to fit in the area he wanted it placed in yet the cooling is quite adequate. Fan noise is also extremely low. The look is decent also and not too "busy" as some cases are these days. If you are looking for a budget case that won't break the bank then this one is a decent choice.
Very modest and tamed computer case, I definitely would recommend the Z9 Plus to anyone thinking of building a pc. This product is in anyone's price range, and it does not look or feel like a cheaply made product.
The design is nice and the fans seem to be in all the right places. The airflow must be working since I just transferred my mobo+cpu together and the temp dropped 3-4 degrees. I needed a case that had the buttons and ports at the top and choose this case because of the price and reviews. Al in all, I glad I purchased this case.
