Zalman GS1000 has a 120 mm fan on its top, protected by a fancy cover, as shown in Figure 5. We will talk about this fan later. On the top part of the case you can also find a panel containing two USB ports, a FireWire port and mic in and headphone jacks. Unfortunately the USB ports are too close to each other, preventing you from installing two “fat” USB devices at the same time, like USB drives. We also think that this case could have an eSATA port here.
Finally we have the rear panel in Figure 7. On this case the power supply is installed on the lower section of the case. What is different on this case is that it comes with a handle for you to attach to your power supply. This case also has a 120 mm fan on its rear panel and two holes for hoses from water cooling devices. These holes use a rubber cover, so you won’t need to break anything on your case to have them available. The side panels are attached to the case through thumbscrews, which is great.
This case comes with a pair of good-quality feet, which is recommended to use if you add fans on the bottom of the case (more about these fans in the next page).
Let’s see how GS1000 looks like inside.
