The Bottom and Rear Panels

The bottom panel of the ZM-T3 has no openings for additional fans. However, it has a removable air filter for the power supply fan, as shown in Figure 7.

The rear panel of the Zalman ZM-T3 is painted in black. The power supply is installed at the bottom of the case.

The product comes with a 92 mm fan installed on its rear panel (model ZA9225ASL, 1.44 W, no model info available). There are three holes with 0.79” (20 mm) in diameter to install hoses for an external liquid cooling system, but you need to break the covers to use the holes.

The case has four expansion slots with meshed covers. The first one (closer to the CPU) has a removable cover, while the other three have covers that must be broken to use the slots.
