Product Overview The HD500 series HTPC cases not only look great but they also offer excellent cooling for a HTPC chassis. The minimalist styling, brushed aluminium finish and the rounded corners give these cases a distinctive look. The optical drive, I/O ports and a hot-swappable HDD are all hidden behind front aluminium flaps to maintain the elegant finish.

Spacious Interior for Easy Component Installation
The HD500 series can accommodate Micro ATX as well as Standard ATX motherboards. This makes it possible to install high performance components without having to worry if a large CPU cooler or graphics card will fit. The cases are compatible with coolers no taller than 125mm. Finally, with the HD500 series you can install long PSUs due to the extra space.

Side Ventilation for Intensified Cooling Performance
One of the down sides to HTPC case is the fact they can become quite warm due to the size of the chassis'. Zalman have helped to solve this problem by incorporating many ventilation holes. At the rear and the left side of the case you will find that there are two 80mm fans and 120mm fan. These fans are designed to extract the hot air generated inside the chassis. The intake fan is also 120mm which blows the cooler air from outside the chassis over the HDDs. PLEASE NOTE: The case is only supplied with two 80mm fans. The 120mm fans need to be purchased separately, if required.

Tool-Free HDD Installation
Up to three 3.5" hard drives can be installed into the HD500 series, without any tools! This provides easy access to any of the drives. Also, each drive bay features anti-vibration rubber dampers - to help keep the noise away.

Hot-swappable HDD Support
Both the HD501 and the 503 have the facility for one hot-swappable 3.5" hard drive to be installed. This hard drive is installed into a 5.25" drive bay rather than a 3.5". As you would expect the HDD is mounted on anti-vibrational rubber screws. The hot-swappable HDD is accessed by lowering the bottom flap.

SSD (Solid State Drive) Compatible
With the cost price of solid state drives starting to lower, they are now becoming more and more common in PCs due to the excellent performance they offer. Zalman have noticed this and therefore have supplied the HD500 series with a bracket that will allow for two SSDs to be installed into one 3.5" drive bay.

Convenient Front I/O Ports
For convenience Zalman have also made available at the front of the case several common ports. Two USB, one e-SATA, one headphone and one microphone port are all available. These ports are hidden behind the same flap that hides the hot-swappable HDD.

Integrated DFSTN LCD for Users Convenience - HD503 only
The HD503 features an DFSTN LCD on the front panel which has a wide viewing angle and displays various multimedia information for the users convenience. The 503 is also supplied with remote control that is Vista compatible (Windows 7 support available soon). This allows control of the system from the comfort of your chair!

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.
