A peek under the bonnet
Accessing the components is a straightforward affair and all one has to do is undo a couple of screws to reveal the tiny interior.
It’s not as cramped as notebook, but it’s not far off, either. Still there is enough room for cooling and upgrades are a walk in the park. The ZBOX EN760 features plenty of expansion options for its form factor – four USB 3.0 ports, SDXC card reader, two SO-DIMM slots, and an mSATA slot along with a standard 2.5-inch bay. This should be more than enough for the average user.
The 15W CPU and Geforce GPU are covered by a slim vapor chamber heatsink. The whole cooling system looks like a single slot blower cooler used on desktop graphics cards.
The Plus version ships with a single Crucial 8GB SO-DIMM module and a 1TB 5400rpm hard drive. Adding an extra memory module requires some tinkering, as you have to take out the hard drive, but this is very easy, since it’s kept in place by a single screw.
If you want to make your ZBOX even faster, you can take advantage of the mSATA slot and adding this takes mere seconds. SATA 6Gbps support is onboard, so it’s possible to install some lightning fast solid state storage to complement the HDD.
