Zalman TNN-500A Fanless PC Case Review - The Zalman Case and
(Page 4 of 10 )
Dimensions: 286mm x 607mm x 400mm (11.25" x 24" x 15.75")
Weight: 21 kgs (46 lbs) including PSU; various nuts, bolts and tools; hard disk heat sink; heat pipes; and heat sink blocks. A PC build in this will weight about the same as a baby elephant, though we haven't done any scientific weight comparisons.
Construction: Aluminium, 5-7 mm thick in smooth, black finish.
Door: One in front and one at rear.
Power Supply: 300 watt (with heat dissipated via the case i.e. no fan). Higher wattages are available as options.
Front USB: 2 x USB 2.0 at front provided the motherboard has a USB header. USB ports are hidden behind the door. Cable gaps at the bottom of the case allow USB devices to stay plugged in even when the door is shut.
Expansion: Standard ATX and micro ATX boards (list of compatible motherboards) up to 4 x 5.25" (according to the listed specs; we found only 3) and 6 x 3.5" devices. "Internal" and "external" is a bit blurred on this case so you can consider them all internal... or all external :-)
CPU Cooler = 150 W/sec
VGA Cooler = 50 W/sec
Hard Disk cooler = 6 W/sec
Bits, bolts and tools supplied to put the case together:
Some points to note:
The case comes with a variety of extras, including extra bolts, nuts and attachments, a detailed manual, and a choice of graphics card heat sinks. There's bound to be one in there to fit most AGP graphics cards in the market today.
Some pictures suggest that - in addition to the two handles at the top of the case - there's a handle on each of the doors but some units of the case do not have these handles. The door is still just as easy to open.
The cardboard box and foam that the case comes packaged in is sufficient to keep the empty case safe from all except the most destructive couriers. But you can't ship a built PC in the packing Zalman provides.
You need more than just a screwdriver. The side panels need an Alan key (provided in the package).
According to a Zalman spokesman future options will include: Redundant PSUs, On-board UPS, SDRAM solid state hard disk, No-Fan amplifier, Power meter, Volt meter, and a Security system.
