When you hear the name Zalman you immediately think of their CPU coolers. They have been creating great CPU coolers for quite sometime now. They make quite a lot of other products, but are not as well known for them. Their cases have been hit or miss over the years, some have been awesome and others are easily forgot. Today we are taking a look at one of their latest cases the MS800. This mid tower case has a pretty unique design, has room for long video cards, 2.5-inch hard drives, water cooling as well as having USB 3.0 support and an included fan controller. Will this be a case that brings Zalman back into the spotlight when it comes to cases or will we easily forget about it? Read on as we find out.

The MS800 comes in a very imposing and attractive retail box. On each side of the box there are large photos of the case and one side lists some of the main features.
On the smaller sides of the box there is a full listing of specifications (which we have above) and features.
Opening the large box up the MS800 is nicely protected by two large pieces of styrofoam and a plastic bag.
