Zalman MS800 Overview
For a full video overview of the MS800 check out our video below.
The MS800 is a pretty imposing case. While it is no super flashy or anything it does have a great sleek look to it. The case is pretty large, but it is classified as a mid tower. The actual dimensions are 207(W) x 533(H) x 541(D)mm. The case is mainly made of steel with plastic accents in different parts. The case is all black and as of right now that is the only color available.
At the front of the case there are 10 drive bays. All of these can be used for optical drives, but off the bat the first 6 will work without having to remove hard drive trays inside. There is single bezel cover that supports a 3.5-inch external drive as well. All of the bezel covers easily come off and they have small filters on them to keep dust out of your case.
At the top of the case are all of your connections and buttons. You have two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, headphone and microphone jacks and power and reset buttons. At the center there is a large dial, which is the fan controller, it supports up to 6 fans. Moving back there is a spot to place your smartphone or portable hard drive on. Finally at the back there is a large ventilated section where there is a 120mm fan. There is room for a second 120mm fan, but it is not included.
The sides of the case a pretty plain. There is a small MS800 logo on the bottom right of the left side panel.
At the back of the case there is a 120mm fan. Below that there are two water cooling holes, but they are pretty small. Your power supply will be mounted on the bottom of the case and each side panel does have thumbscrews.
There is a plastic filter that comes out from the back of the case. If we take a look at the bottom of the case we can see that it actually goes across most of the case.
