Zalman Z7 Plus Case Review

Introduction (Cont’d)
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

There is absolutely nothing fancy about Z7 Plus top panel, as you can see in Figure 4. The word "ZALMAN" glows in blue when the computer is turned on, acting as the "power LED". In Figure 5, you can see all connectors available on the top panel, which are protected with a lid: two USB ports, eSATA port, mic in jack and heaphones out jack.

The rear panel can be seen in Figure 6. On Z7 and Z7 Plus the power supply is installed on the top part of the case. A 120 mm fan comes installed here, and it uses a regular peripheral power connector, not allowing you to monitor its speed (1,100 rpm, 39.77 cfm, 22 dB). Two holes for liquid cooling solutions are available, protected by rubber covers, so you won't need to break anything on your case in order to use this feature.

This new case uses vented slot covers, which can help improving the computer internal airflow. There is also a small mesh above the expansion slots with the same purpose.

Z7 Plus comes with a tab for you to install a padlock or a seal to the left panel.

As you can see, the rear panel isn't painted black.

Now let’s take a look inside Z7 Plus.
