2
Posted October 3, 2014 by Mike in Cases & PSU

Overview

Hardware:
 
Manufacturer:
 
Release Date: Currently Available
 
Price at time of Review: $59.99 at Newegg (with $20 rebate)
 

WHAT WE LIKED:

Unique form factor, ample room for graphics cards, tons of potential for modding, water cooling support, advanced system builders will have fun building in it
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Slight rigidity issues, useless CPU cutout, no cable management, not novice-friendly
 
BOTTOM LINE:
Despite the negatives here, the Azza Z is really quite a unique case that has so much potential for such a slim form factor and is budget friendly without sacrificing too much in the way of features and functionality.

    Thank you very much for doing this review. I have been planning a build (2 actually, 1 for each of my kids) using this case and all the questions roaming in my head that I thought I would need to wait until I had it in hand to try and figure out were answered by your review. I feel much more prepared to build a couple of PCs that will have smiles on my kids’ faces for weeks if not months.
    I did have one question, though, since I’m a noob to modding. On page 4 you mention it being simple to replace the power LEDs but I’m not very familiar with LED types and specs. Could you possibly link to an example of a suitable replacement LED for changing the color of the front panel light? I’m looking forward to making my daughter’s version her favorite color of blue. 🙂 My son loves the green so his won’t need as much modding.
    I am, however, considering a (possibly) crazy setup for adding bottom intake fans and perhaps even a top exhaust fan for radical air flow. …but we’ll see how that turns out after they’re built. 😉
    Thanks again for all the great info in this review, and the pics were incredibly helpful and showed everything I wished I could see before actually buying it.

      We are pleased to hear Vinny’s review of this case was helpful for you. I just finished building two systems for my girls birthdays. Here and Here They love their systems and are now kicking but online.

      For your questions regarding the case/LED mod, you may want to join the forum. There are a lot of great people there. Very helpful and intelligent. No question is a bad question. All will be answered in a helpful manner. You can even create a build log for your systems so everyone can follow along the progress. A log will also centralize any questions you may have along the way. Check out some of the other Logs HERE

      I’m Cyberburnout on the forums. hope to see you there.
