Zalman's new Z9-Plus line of cases started selling. The lineup consists of the Z9-Plus (base model), and Z9-Plus DIII (a variant with an in-built 2-channel fan controller and internal digital thermometer). Measuring 207 x 504 x 460 mm (WxDxH), and weighing about 7.2 kg, the ATX mid-tower cases are made of SECC steel and ABS plastic. The Z9-Plus features three 5.25-inch; one exposed and five discrete 3.5-inch drive bays, from which one supports a pair of 2.5-inch drives. The cases are largely tool-free, with cutouts that help manage cable-ramen and CPU coolers. Ventilation includes one each of front, rear, and side 120 mm spinners. The top DIII variant is priced around US $60, the base model could be about $10 cheaper.
