T5 Micro-ATX Case - BlackZalman enjoys a high profile as a manufacturer of high-quality, high-performance and individually shaped coolers. In comparison, the small but fine housing section usually takes a back seat. Wrong, because in this segment as well, Zalman shines with its visually striking appearance and high functionality. After the larger models of the Midi and Big Tower segment, the manufacturer now rounds off its own range with the T-cases in the area of the Mini-Tower.
Like its predecessors T1 to T4, the T5 is a true-to-life tower, but only in a smaller version. It is simple and noble with a beautiful front design with the look of brushed metal and its consistent black coloring to please. Striking are the mounting options for fans. A small gaming system with excellent cooling is therefore no obstacle.
The I / O panel is located on the lid and houses two USB ports, one of which complies with standard 3.0, audio connections and power and reset buttons. Behind the front, a 120mm-fan can be installed, through the ventilation holes in the lower part of the front hard disks. On the side panel you can even attach two 120-mm fans. A 92mm fan Zalman has already installed in the back, which ensures that hot air is transported out of the case. The power supply sits at the back of the bottom of the case and ventilates itself - its air intake is equipped with dust filters as well as the front and side panels.
The interior is fortunately as the tower itself completely black. This is modern and visually a real gem. But even with installation options and features, the Zalman ZM-T5 is not stingy. For example, a 2.5-inch drive can be installed vertically on a tray on the right-hand side, with two additional 3.5-inch drives behind the front, also in a vertical orientation. Above there is the possibility to mount a 5.25-inch drive. You can also attach a 2.5-inch drive below the external 5.25 slot and on the base. In addition to micro-ATX boards, Mini-ITX format boards can be used, and ATX power supplies can be installed in the T5. For this purpose, four expansion cards, including graphics cards with a length of 300 mm can be installed.
Other features such as a good cable management, cable passthroughs, pre-installed dust filter, vibration-resistant rubber or the rounded edges inside the housing make this case a price-performance killer.
