Zalman is getting ready to ship the MS800, a new line of mid-tower cases designed for computer enthusiasts. Made from steel and ABS plastic, these cases measure 207mm x 533mm x 541mm (W x D x H) and weigh approximately 9kg.
Each model has room for ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards, and supports graphics cards as long as 300mm. Interestingly, the MS800 series comes with a support beam that can be installed in three positions. The beam can be used to prevent bending of large add-on cards, and to install side case fans.
Both the MS800 and MS800 Plus have six 5.25" bays and a common 2.5"/3.5"/5.25" bay. The MS800 has three fixed 3.5"/2.5" bays, while the MS800 Plus has caddies with hot-swap support.
The MS800 series cases come with a six-channel fan controller, a I/O panel with two USB 3.0 ports, and dust filters. Each model has two 120mm top fans (LED-backlit for the MS800 Plus), a 120mm rear fan, a 92mm fan bracket (MS800 Plus only), and a 120mm vent for an optional bottom fan. The MS800 Plus also separates itself with the inclusion of an acrylic side window.
You can expect these cases in December, the MS800 will cost around $88 while the MS800 Plus will go for $100.
