Zalman has used NMB fans in their past products.
You wouldn't know it from the model number, but the fan is a low speed, dual
ball bearing model. The current rating on the label (0.25A) does not match any
of the (numerous) spec
sheets I was able to find (0.19A), but fans of this rating tend to be low
to medium speed.
CABLES AND CONNECTORS
There are a total of seven cable sets and three adapters, all of which are
sleeved in black nylon mesh. Zalman is one of the few brands that lists
the length of each cable in the manual, so we were saved the trouble of
measuring them ourselves. As mentioned already, there are several adapter cables
included that allow unusual configurations without cluttering up the design
with extra cable sets.
- 21" (550mm) cable for main 20+4-pin ATX connector
- 21" (550mm) cable for auxiliary 4+4-pin 12V AUX connector (ATX12V/EPS12V
- 21" (550mm) cable for 6-pin PCIe connector
- 21" (400 + 150mm) cable with two SATA drive connectors
- 2 x 33" (550 + 150 + 150mm) cable with two 4-pin IDE drive connectors
and one floppy connector
- 33" (550 + 150 + 150mm) cable with three 4-pin IDE drive connectors
- ??" PCIe splitter for dual VGA systems
- ??" IDE to 2 x SATA adapter for drives
with three or more SATA drives
- ??" IDE to 3-pin fan header adapter (2
x 12V, 2 x 5V)
The cables are of average length, but, thanks to the extra adapters, there
are relatively few in total. This should be good for cable management, as there
will be less extra cables that need to be hidden away in the final build. Very
few people are likely to use all of the available connectors, and even fewer
will need the adapters.
