“Many users demand a completely silent PC for audio production, video and audio editing, content playback and other tasks. After many years of engineering to fine tune power and heat requirements, ZOTAC is able to deliver passive cooled mini-PCs with 4th Generation Intel Core i3 and i5 processors that satisfies the noise and performance demands of users,” says Carsten Berger, senior director, ZOTAC International.

The completely new ZOTAC ZBOX C-series nano chassis incorporates a unique honeycomb pattern on the top and sides paired with a large internal heatsink for maximum heat dissipation without relying on fans. Plenty of external expansion enables the ZOTAC C-series nano mini-PCs to connect to SuperSpeed USB 3.0 accessories, HDMI and DisplayPort monitors and televisions while integrated Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac networking provides lightning-fast connectivity via wires or wireless.

Four ZOTAC ZBOX C-series nano configurations are available with a power-sipping AMD A6-1450 APU or Intel Celeron N2930 for the energy and value-conscious users while a 4th Generation Intel Core i3 4020Y or Core i5 4210Y satisfy high-performance demanding professionals and enthusiasts. Plus versions of each ZOTAC ZBOX C-series nano mini-PCs preinstall 4GB of DDR3L and a 64GB SSD (2.5-inch) for users that just want to load an OS and go.

It’s time to play silently with the ZOTAC ZBOX C-series nano mini-PCs!
