Zalman rolled out its lates ATX mid-tower case, the Z11 Neo. Featuring a matte-black color-scheme with glowing blue elements, the case features a front air-scoop design that’s a throwback to some of the oldest gaming-grade mid-towers, from the likes of Zalman, Antec, and Cooler Master. What’s changed is modern touches under the hood, and a brushed faux-metal front. Its lone 5.25-inch drive bay is veiled by a sliding shutter. A large triangular window bulges out from its side.
The Z11 Neo features an all-black interior, its motherboard tray features cutouts at all the right spots. An 8-pin EPS extension cable is included. Storage features include two concealed 5.25-inch bays in addition to the exposed one; and six 3.5-inch/2.5-inch drive bays, spread between two cages of three bays, each. The top cage is detachable, and frees up room for graphics cards as long as 400 mm (270 mm with it installed). Ventilation includes two 120 mm front intakes (a blue 120 mm fan comes pre-installed); two top 120 mm exhausts (one pre-installed), a 120 mm rear exhaust, and a 120 mm bottom intake. The intake vents come with dust filters pre-installed. Measuring 205 x 465 x 515 mm (WxHxD), the Z11 Neo is made of SECC steel and ABS plastic. Zalman didn’t announce pricing or availability.
