Slim aluminum tower case with excellent cooling performance and expandability.
Noise & Vibration Preventive Structure
All sides of the GT1000 are comprised of aluminum material of 4~5mm thickness and have each been assembled by an engineer to provide a firm enclosure with noise and vibration preventions. Furthermore, the connection part for the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) is made of rubber rollers and dampers, which serve to capture the vibration and noise from escaping.
The GT1000 enclosure is designed to maintain optimum internal temperature at all times, incorporating two 92mm LED Front Intake Fans and a 120mm Rear Exhaust Fan for high volume airflow through the system at low fan RPM for high performance cooling with quiet operation, and accommodates even the hottest CPUs that generate over 130watts of heat
Designed for HDD with High TDP
The latest high performance HDDs have high generation of heat due to high RPM. The two 92mm LED Front Intake Fans draw in cool air from the outside into the system. As HDD is the first component to be cooled by this cool air, the decrease in the product’s life expectancy and the occurrence of data error caused by high heat are minimized.
Control of Noise & System Cooling
The ZM-MC1 is provided with the GT1000, which allows the control of fan RPM according to the ambient environment (temperature, humidity, etc.) Thus, the user can manually control the fan RPM to control the levels of noise and internal system cooling.
One Touch-Opening Door Side Panel
The side panel is designed to be opened with a one touch opening door method. Thus, the side panel can be opened without the use of any special tools, which makes it convenient for users who have frequent component changes.
Convenient Front Input/Output Ports
The Front I/O Port includes sockets for speakers (headphones), microphone, 2 USB devices, and a 1394 (Firewire) device for convenient system access. Audio sockets support HD Audio (Azalia) and AC’97 specifications.
1) Tool-free HDD installation
Patent pending design that incorporates anchored spinning bars with cylindrical rubber wheels allows the user to install and remove the HDD simply by rolling the HDD in and out of the chassis without having to use any tools. Furthermore, there is sufficient space in the lower section of the enclosure where two HDDs can be installed in a tool-free manner.
Unlike typical cases that only incorporate a thin aluminum facade front cover, the entire GT1000 enclosure incorporates firm 4-5mm thick anodized pure aluminum panels that prevent system vibration, reinforce system cooling by dissipating internal heat, and provide the highest in aesthetic quality.
The three LED fans with altering brightness depending on the fan’s RPM provide greater aesthetic quality.
A transparent window has been installed on the side panel to provide excellent aesthetics as well as to allow the user to be able to view the diverse components installed inside the system. Especially for the users who favor system tuning, various LEDs can be used inside the system to create a unique system according to the user’s preference.
All connecting bolts and card holder are plated or colored to provide an elegant image as well as to provide a semi-permanent corrosion prevention.
Besides the four 5.25” Bays and one 3.5” Bay exposed to the outside, the installation of six 3.5” HDD is possible, providing the best expandability among enclosures in the same group.
Ideal Gaming PC Environment
The use of ZALMAN’s CPU cooler, VGA cooler, PSU, and Northbridge cooler with the GT1000 will provide a quiet and stable gaming PC. (CNPS9700, VF700, VF900, ZM460B-APS, ZM600-HP, ZM-NBF47 etc.…)
