Zalman Z9 NEO Mid-Tower Chassis
The front of the Z9 NEO is made of a solid front panel, this time, painted white, with black accents at the top and bottom. There is also a tiny Zalman logo painted at the bottom of the front door to let everyone know who made this slick looking chassis.
The door is held shut with magnets, and the inside of the door offers a large section of noise absorbing material. In the front bezel, there are covers over the pair of 5.25" bays, while the rest is opened up for ventilation used as the intake.
The front I/O panel is in the black plastic accent at the top. Front left to right there is a large power button, a bit of angled plastic, the reset button, HD Audio jacks, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, and a pair of USB 3.0 ports. Also, note that rubber caps are placed in the USB ports to keep dust out of them while they are not being used.
The top of the chassis starts off as a solid section of plastic covering the steel innards of this case. As we move to the back of the chassis, we find a raised section of white surrounded by translucent black plastic. This allows the top fans to blow air out of the top, and also allows a bit of the LED light to shine through here.
Angled ventilation along the top, a large window taking up most of it, and the Z9 NEO name painted in gray along the bottom is what makes up the left side of this chassis. We see that in the front there is ventilation to allow air in past the door, and we also notice the plastic doesn't exactly match the paint color.
The panels are held on with thumbscrews on either side of the black painted steel. Down the middle that is room for the dust shield and a 120mm fan hanging next to it. The seven expansion slots have ventilated covers, and mesh next to them for some passive air flow, leaving the bottom of the chassis to house the PSU.
The right side of the chassis offers the same ventilation along the top and at the front. This time, the panel is just a flat expanse of steel, with no naming, and no need for a window.
Under the chassis, there are four large legs that raise the chassis off the floor and have oval shaped pads to keep the chassis from slipping. At the back is a large dust filter for the PSU, which slides out the back, and near the front is potential mounting holes.
