Zalman HD135 HTPC Case
November 22, 2006

Zalman has always been a leader in silent or extreme low noise computer coolers, power supplies, and accessories, and take a somewhat different approach than most companies offering these products. First and foremost, Zalman does not sacrifice low noise to achieve better cooling. I have had the pleasure of checking out a few Zalman products over the last few years and have always found their "out of the box" thinking and attention to detail second to none. It was for these reasons that I was very excited to work with one of their new HD135 HTPC cases.

When creating a PC system for use at a desk, noise is somewhat of a concern, but a certain level of noise has become acceptable to achieve cooler temperatures. When setting out to create a PC for home theater duty, noise and heat get a lot more attention. Normally you have to trade one for the other; more fans mean less heat build up and more noise, but make a quiet or even silent system and you will build up more heat. Zalman has tried to make the best of both worlds with their HD135.
