Zotac’s series of ZBOX mini PCs has been around for quite sometime and it seems like each year Zotac does something a little different with them. At Computex 2014 Zotac is launching a new range of ZBOX PCs called the C-Series which are all entirely passively called without any moving parts.
To achieve this Zotac had to move to an all metal exterior chassis that has quite a lot of honeycomb-style ventilation holes. As you can see on the front of the unit there are two USB ports, SD card reader and audio connections. On the back you have four USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, DisplayPort, HDMI, and eSATA.
The C-Series will be made up of four different models: an Intel Core i5 model (CI540 Nano), a Core i3 (CI520 Nano), a Celeron (CI320 Nano) and an AMD A6 one (CA320 Nano). Prices will range from $139 – $449. The flagship C1540 Nano Plus will feature a Core i5-4210Y processor, a single 4 GB stick of DDR3L 1600 MHz memory and a 64 GB solid state drive. The passive design of the C-Series makes them perfect for media and entertainment PCs.
