Zalman GS1000 Plus case review

There's no such thing as the perfect case. In fact I discussed this very question in a recent blog post but that doesn't mean that very, very good cases can't be found. Air-cooled cases have been around pretty much since the dawn of the PC (early models didn't even have fans so they might be considered an exception to the rule) and despite hardware growing ever hotter, manufacturers keep finding ways to push the design forwards.

The original Zalman GS1000 didn't wow us with features, build quality or cooling. In fact, when Custom PC tested cases in its labs (see issue 63) by locking them in Intel's thermal test chamber, the GS1000 only just passed the torturous 60 minute test and recorded temperatures (particularly of the CPU) were very high compared to some of the better cases such as the Antec Twelve Hundred.
