Asian case maker Zeaginal has released a new ZC-03M chassis with a full Gundam theme for lovers of the sci-fi franchise (via Cowcotland). The case supports up to Micro-ATX motherboards and features a tempered glass side panel, along with plenty of mounting options for radiators.
Aesthetically the case has the same red, white, and blue color combinations that so many other Gundam-themed graphics cards and motherboards have used in the past. The front panel and some of the mounting points for fans/radiators are coated in blue. Meanwhile, the chassis frame is decked out in pure white, with the top and bottom ventilation areas colored in red.
The chassis gets most of its airflow from either the top or bottom of the case. Depending on the fan configuration, you can run the fans as intakes on the top or bottom. Also, cutouts on the sides of the tempered glass panel allow even more airflow to pass through the chassis, though we don't see any air filters present.
The case has a heavy construction — it weighs in at 18 pounds alone (not to mention the weight when fully kitted out with components). The case measures 15 x 8.3 x 18.8 inches with a 4mm-thick tempered glass side panel.
Four fan mounts support 140mm or 120m options, with support for up to 280mm radiators on two of the mounts. The case supports heatsinks that measure 165mm or shorter.
Storage options are a little lackluster with just three mounts, two of which are for 2.5" drives and one for a 3.5" hard drive.
Unfortunately, we do not know the pricing or availability. We do expect this unit to be very expensive given its unique Gundam theme and thick metal construction.
