Three fans with white LED lighting shine through the black mesh front of the Zalman i3, revealing where the wind blows from, because the medium sized case accommodates a total of six 120mm fans: three in the front, two in the lid and one in the front at the back, above the PCI slots. Apart from the two positions in the lid, Zalman equips the i3 in four places with white-lit 120mm fans.
The integrated fan control in the I / O panel is conveniently suitable for controlling six fans. A 240 mm radiator can be installed in the front of the housing as an alternative to the pre-installed fans. With air cooling, CPU coolers with a height of up to 175 mm are provided. The Zalman i3 is suitable for installing powerful overclocking motherboards in ATX format and offers a total of seven PCI slots on the back of the case. Powerful gaming graphics cards can be up to 360 millimeters long and are priced ex-works in the airflow generated by the pre-installed fans.
Design, fans and connectivity
The Zalman i3 is completely in matt black outside and inside. Only the dark tinted acrylic glass side panel stands out for its gloss from the matt black exterior of the case. Light accents are provided by the four pre-installed, white-shining LED fans. These are controlled by the fan controller built into the I / O panel, which has buttons for lowering or increasing the fan speed and allows simultaneous control of up to six fans.
In addition, the I / O panel is provided with the obligatory switches and each has a jack socket as an audio output for headphones and as a microphone input. Two USB 2.0 ports and a Type A USB 3.0 port allow you to quickly plug in USB sticks and other peripherals without having to crawl under your desk.
Behind the black power supply cover not only up to 180 millimeters long power adapters find space: Here is a hard drive cage with two removable slide, on each of which a 3.5-inch hard drive or a 2.5-inch hard drive or -SSD hidden in front of the viewer, can be installed. Two more 2.5-inch drives can be found in the front of the motherboard tray, just between motherboard and front fans, and a fifth 2.5-inch memory can be found on the back of the mainboard tray, below the CPU recess Backplates, to be installed.
