Zotac Shows Off Passively Cooled Skylake ZBOX

Zotac had their entire line of ZBOX mini PCs on display at CES this year. The one that really caught our attention was the new passively cooled C Series unit. Being passively cooled means that there are no fans at all inside the unit. This means that there is going to be no noise at all!

Zotac’s C Series ZBOX’s will feature Intel Core i5-6300U Skylake processors, Intel HD graphics 520, a 2.5-inch HDD/SDD bay, 2x DDR3L-1600 SODIMM slots, dual Gigabit LAN, 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0. The top of the unit has a cool mesh design to it. On the front of the unit you have a power button, activity LEDs, two USB 3.1 type-C ports, combination USB 3.0 port / SD card slot, and headphone and microphone connections.


Moving around to the back you have an antenna connection for the WiFi, DisplayPort, dual Gigabit Ethernet, a USB 2.0 port, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, and a power connection. No word yet on a starting price from Zotac, but they say they will be one of the first to market with a passively cooled Skylake unit in this size.
