Ultra Performance in a Compact Case – Z-Case P50
Do you want premium performance with a small space?
Do you need high output power but feel the power supply too chunky？
Do you like high-quality computer case with excellent aesthetic?
Do you want to see through all your beautiful computer components with fancy Tempered Glass?
Do you want a case that can be as quiet as a library?
Introducing Z-Cases P50, which will satisfy all of your need.
We are a group of avid computer lovers and we are experienced in manufacturing process. Therefore, we want to put our expertise into some area that we are truly in love with. We have gathered talented mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, and highly-reputed designer and we have brought the case into reality.
Aluminum, Tempered glass, come together
The case is created with premium aesthetics, a combination and collision of anodized aluminum and tempered glass make the case beautiful, steady, and exhilarating.
The case is created with special care of materials. Our material is thick and premium, and we are using the materials with highest rank quality — 6063 Anodized Aluminum, Tempered Glass. We are creating a premium feeling with the case.
Everything in Place, every space is arranged
The Case is capable of holding a motherboard of mini-ITX, a full length, 2.5 slow graphic cards and 4x2.5" drive bays with an ulti-compact size of 7.9L. Besides, the case is also supporting two USB connectors next to the power on Button.
The case supports multiple positions including tower, console. Furthermore, with special accessories, you are able to mount it on the wall.
The tile design makes it compact
We are creating our cases with the “tile” design in which computer components spreads throughout the space, and every space is carefully arranged so that few room is wasted. Benefitting from the design, our case has an ultra compatibility of 7.9L. Besides, the design also provides better ventilation.
In addition to the tile design, we have also engineered our ventilation system so that the performance will not be compromised by overheating issues.
The case also comes with the high-quality flex 1u PSU that supports up to 600W, being able to support most mainstream configurations.
A small but powerful power supply
The $279 Tier comes with a premium 600W flex 1u power supply. We are challenging the limit of a power supply unit by keeping a flex 1u form factor while boosting the power output to 600W. It can even handle RTX 2080 like a piece of cake. We guarantee that it can handle all mainstream configuration.
The PSU has the size of 3.3" * 1.55" * 5.9 — a smaller volume than most drink bottles. But it is also able to handle 600W power — you can put GTX 2080 into the case and run with the PSU, you can put i9-9900K into the case and the PSU will still output the power easily. The ultra-high power output is sufficient for every mainstream configuration.
Our cases is slim. But we are also keeping good heat management. We have done extensive thermal test and the result graph is shown below.
Processor: Intel i7-8086K @ 4.00GHz, Max TDP 95W. 6 Cores, 12 Threads
Motherboard: ASUS ROG STRIX Z390-I
Heat sink: Cryorig C7 Cu
Room Temperature: 25ºC
Conclusion: for normal, daily use, users will not need any standoff, and the CPU can still handle some occasional heavy duty task. In case of heavy gaming/rendering or anything that could require high CPU Utilization, it is recommended to use Standoff to prevent overheating.
