AZZA Z Mini-ITX Gaming Chassis Review

AZZA Z Mini-ITX Gaming Chassis




AZZA has been known for aggressive styling, and that does not change with the Z. At the top, there is a large chunky power button where both sides angle away from the ridge in the middle. To the right is a slim ODD bay cover, which lies above three stripes that will light up later. Of course, there is also the AZZA naming to the left, and the green venting near the bottom.




With three sections at the top of the panel, and four at the bottom half, this left side panel will allow the video card to breathe at the top, and the PSU to breath at the bottom. Otherwise, the entire panel is flat, and locked into the chassis with a single thumbscrew.




The back of the chassis offers some passive ventilation at the top left, and to the right of the ventilation is a pair of expansion slots. Moving down, we find the power extension, more passive venting to the left, and the rear I/O to the right.




While not an exact match, the right side of the chassis has the same I/O panel as the bezel, and the panel has changed where the green venting has been placed. At the top, the venting is over the HDD rack, and the lower section is backed with a fan to cool the motherboard compartment.




The front I/O panel offers a single USB 3.0 port, which is followed by a pair of USB 2.0 ports below. While not clearly labeled in any fashion, we found the top jack is for headphones, and the lower jack is for the microphone.




On the bottom of the chassis, looking at the front, we see that the chassis is dimpled so you know where to apply the feet from the hardware bag. The rest of the bottom is ventilated, as you will see from inside, and there is a matching set of dimples at the rear for the stick-on feet.
