I would like to thank G.SKILL for supplying the review sample.
G.Skill is known for their memory products, but the brand has diversified into peripherals, SSDs, and power supplies over the years. With the Z5i, G.Skill is entering the ITX case market, which is undoubtedly one of the harder segments to get into. Offering a mid-tower ATX chassis requires little effort as there are plenty of quality OEMs with the ability to bring unique looks and a good mixture of materials to market. ITX enclosures, however, require a lot of investment, work, and planning to stand out, while offering the compatibility needed within the limited available space. At first sight, the Z5i with its bent glass panels is quite the extravagant entry, so lets dive right in!
