Inside the Z3 Plus White
The first look inside of the Z3 Plus shows the wiring tied to the motherboard tray and the VGA support system just to the left, screwed into the edge closest to us. We also find the hardware and manual in the HDD rack, and there is a QC checklist sitting in the back.
There are three 5.25-inch bays, the top two of which offer tool-free latches and will house 5.25-inch drives. As for the third bay, it has a 3.5-inch adapter built-in that closes that bay to specifically 3.5-inch exposed devices.
Lower down in the front of the chassis, there is an open area that allows the 120mm fan a solid chance of getting into the main compartment. Below that, there is an HDD rack that looks to hold four drives in it as well as a 2.5-inch drive on the top. There are also holes in the left side of this rack to mount a 120mm fan there.
The top of the chassis has round holes cut into the steel, and there is a pair of 120mm fans installed here. While a single radiator AIO is feasible, the offset of these fans is too wide for standard dual radiators.
The motherboard tray has the standoffs already in place for six of the nine ATX holes, offers a large access hole, and has five wiring holes and a lot of ventilation added to keep things cool.
The floor of the chassis does not offer an optional fan placement, but there are rubber strips to allow the PSU to sit on top of, and we can also see that the back of the chassis, where the PSU mounts to, does not offer a gasket.
Inside of the back of the chassis, there is the last of four 120mm fans installed as the exhaust. This is powered via a 4-pin Molex connection, but it offers a fair length of wiring to get it connected cleanly. We also see the expansion slot covers are breakout style, and there are PSU style screws offered for securing cards.
Looking behind the motherboard, we find only 10mm of room for wiring, but there is a deeper section at the bottom that is 15mm deep and allows for a bit of wire nesting. There is room behind the HDD rack as well, but there will be enough wiring already if those slots are all filled.
The wiring is long enough to get to any size motherboard that this chassis allows for, and it all is mostly black. The exception is the front panel wiring for the switches and LEDs; that came striped red and black.
