Kolink is shooting right for the high-end PC market with this case, and there’s pretty much a single winning formula for that market, at least while trying to retain a reasonable price range. It’s an all-black case, with a lightly tinted large tempered glass window down the left side; perfect for showing off your hardware!

On the right side, it’s a solid metal panel, held in place by a pair of thumbscrews at the rear of the case, so it’s relatively easy to open up for a quick tinker.

The front panel looks great, with really clean lines and a second tempered glass panel, which looks great now, but will look even better when the ARGB fans are powered on.

The airflow is from the sides of the panel, and with it running almost the full height of the case, there’s a good amount of intake space. There’s an additional hidden opening at the bottom of the front panel too. Don’t worry about dust though, as there’s a lovely magnetic dust filter built into the front panel too.

Around the back, you’ll find a good amount of ventilation at the top, preventing any unwanted pockets of warm air from building up. Below that, there’s a 120/140mm fan mount with height adjustable mounts to improve fan/radiator compatibility.

There are seven expansion slots on the Observatory Z, as you would expect from an ATX/E-ATX case. However, there are also an additional three slots mounted vertically should you wish to mount your GPU on its side. However, the riser cable isn’t included, so you’ll need to purchase one separately.

The PSU mount is located at the bottom, and there’s a slide-out dust filter here too, ensuring it gets its own clean airflow.

Further cooling can be mounted into the top of the Observatory Z, with a full-length dust filter providing an excellent amount of passive airflow.

Of course, under the cover, you’ll see that it supports an array of fans and radiator configurations too, greatly increasing your cooling potential.

There’s a comprehensive I/O panel on the Observatory Z, running almost half the length of the case on the top-right side. There are 2 x USB 2, 2 x USB 3, and a Type C port here, as well as HD Audio in/out, power controls and a master ARGB control button.
