The ZOTAC ZBOX Nano XS AD11 Plus, you can see the exhaust from the cooler on the left.
Here we can see the rear IO, the included Wifi adaptor will not work in the Blue USB 3.0 ports so it must go in a Yellow USB 2.0 port.
Here we can see the front IO, under the power button it looks like that should be a IR port for the remote control but doesn’t appear to function as one.
The right side has a place for a Kensington lock and some air vents.
The bottom of the unit is held on with four screws at each corner which also work as vibration dampening feet and are made of quite soft rubber. The four triangles are for fitting the unit to the VESA mounting plate. There’s lots air vents on the bottom too which is good for air movement.
Under the hood we get our first look at the Kingston 64GB SSD and the 2GB of Samsung DDR3 1333MHz RAM.
Voiding the warranty, we dig in to the unit further, this is what the mainboard looks like once you have extracted it from the top, which fortunately isn’t too difficult of a job.
This is what’s left once you have taken out the mainboard, an empty case with just the front IO board installed.
Here’s the cooler which chills both the Fusion E-450 APU and Hudson chipset.
On the underside we see the two contact areas, the thermal paste had set very hard as often seen in this type of device, I replaced it with some high quality, non-conductive thermal paste.
Here’s a quick look at the Fusion E-450 APU and the Hudson chipset.
