A-Top Technology Z-Alien Enclosure Review

Within the case we also get some rails which helps make the instillation of drives a lot easier. As you can see from the picture below, you get more then enough to fill up the case with hard drives and CD-ROMs and even floppy drive.



With the rails installed on the drive, you simply slide the drive straight into the space for your hard drives. Removing and installing drives can literally be completed in seconds!



When it comes to motherboard installation, we did have our doubts - personally I am a great fan of the motherboard tray and Lian Li has done wonders with it for years now. Since the Z-Alien didn't have one to speak of, we didn't expect it to go as smoothly as it did. Thanks to the length of the case, you can really get in the case with ease and move around with freedom. You don't get a true feeling and understanding for how big the case is until you start installing everything.


The overall case installation isn't too bad a task and all things considered, the Z-Alien does an excellent job of making installation a breeze without the use of the motherboard. Top marks for this section.
