NO! But I do have a slightly used circa 1992 Packard Bell up in the attic of the garage that you can have for free. I'll check to be sure it's not melted, and you can have it for the price of the shipping. Will even include the components if you'd like. (Lord, I'm feeling generous today. Holidays always do that to me.)

Does it have one of those permanently attached modems like my multimedia 197 PB in my closet? With the spikes on the end bent down and soldered to the mobo? lol

Buy an Antec 900. It's cheaper, prettier and I bet it cools better :P

That is a really nice case actually. But the whole strapping the other two hard drives out of the six on the bottom of the case turned me off. Secondly, I don't like front intake fans - unless they have dust filters over them; which I did not see. Other than that, it's pretty nice. I think that I'd go for the silver version though.

Meh, I take my Silverstone and Thermaltake over that any day. A Big negative in that Zalman case is the hard drives are mounted the wrong way. When they are mounted parallel to the front, it makes it a lot easier to swap out bad/temporary drives.

Get rid of the brand labeling and it's a nice clean design.

Did you check out the cleaning constraints? It looks like you'll damage the thing by using just about any cleaner/detergent, apparently including water (wet cloth)

I like my cases a little tougher than that.

$400 ? No way.

I read that and found it quite humorous. Apparently, it's blow cleaning only or a scam to get you to buy one of their cleaning products as well.

I actually don't find it appealing at all. I would pay, at most, $80 for it. I don't see anything that warrants it costing $400. There's a lot better cases out there for only $150.

Finding the right case is really hard in my opinion. I don't know if it's because I'm so picky, or if it's because I actually want something good, and that was designed properly.

3 120mm fans and a 200mm top fan? It probably should be bundled with a nice pair of Bose sound cancelling ear phones, or a sound effect CD of jets taking off, to lower/mask the noise levels.

Man you guys are harsh...

HUH? What are you talking about? If you're saying what I think you're saying. If you are saying what I think you thought you were saying I agree. But I'm not sure what you are saying. In any case, the way it's set up to pull the drives straight out the side seems like the best setup to me. For easy changing that is, not for effective use of the intake air flow. I like my case with the hard drive enclosure held by a thumb screw, and removable with all the HD's connected.

AH HA HA HA HA HA! I just saw that. I think that's called standard disclaimer aka covering their butts. Obviously they have had a problem with someone trying to clean his case with mosquito repellant? That has to be the only reason they included that.Maybe he thought it would keep the bugs from being attracted to his case light LOL!!! And I'm sure guys have tried scouring powder and scratched the finish and complained. And I'm sure some a-hole tried wiping his case out with a wet cloth and tried to sue them for getting shocked since he left the power on. Same for everything else mentioned.

Thought the mosquito repellent would keep software bugs away. :)

Reminds me of when I was a junior in high school, taking the computer maintenance class for an easy A, all us geeks stuck together. One kid, the typical kid no one likes, came up to us and asked us how to overclock his computer. Is**t you not, we told him to solder a watch to his computer. And that a Rolex would yield a better performance boost than an Armitron or Casio. Sad thing is, we're pretty sure he believed us, even if just for a few hours. :P

Good times. Good times.

I remember that kid at my school. The first time he had sex he got pubic lice. Wanting experienced opinions he asked us the best way to get rid of them. We told him to make a paste out of Vicks Vapo-Rub and gasoline, apply it and leave it on for 30 minutes. He was walking bowlegged for weeks. Poor guy! Well at least they died...I hope LOL

Say, that wouldn't happen to be the same kid who came up to you for advice on how to ask the ladies out, and you told him to tell her all these crude, ridiculously sexual, and downright offensive lines, just to watch him get slapped... would it? :P
