Zotac Zbox pico PI430AJ review: The world's first mini PC with active AirJet technology cools the Intel Core i3-N300 in a 0.055 gal case

Active AirJet cooling without fan. Zotac's compact pico series has undergone a significant upgrade. Alongside the introduction of the new Intel Core i3-N300 featuring 8 Alder Lake cores, Zotac stands out as the first producer to incorporate a novel cooling system. Two active AirJet modules are implemented to effectively manage the SoC even during heavy usage. We have evaluated the effectiveness of this system and assessed the overall performance of the Zotac Zbox pico PI430AJ in daily usage.

Zotac has been offering extremely compact PCs under the pico series pseudonym, focusing on silent operation. The latest model, however, introduces significant changes. Featuring the new Intel Core i3-N300, with native 8 cores for enhanced multi-thread performance, the standout feature is the integrated AirJet technology designed to cool the SoC. The Zotac Zbox pico PI430AJ is equipped with 8 GB LPDDR5 RAM and a 512 GB NVMe SSD, priced at around $599.99 for this configuration. While this cost is relatively high, given the competitive options within the $500 range, the unique selling point of the innovative cooling unit shouldn't be overlooked. The device's performance was closely examined to assess its effectiveness. A comparative device list has been compiled for this review, featuring devices within the same price range.

Case - Compact 0.055 gal aluminum case

Visually, the Zotac Zbox pico PI430A bears a strong resemblance to its predecessor, the Zotac Zbox PI336 pico. The compact housing is crafted entirely from aluminum, serving as a medium for heat dissipation. While the previous model relied solely on passive cooling, the PI430A adopts a dual-cooling approach, integrating the active AirJet technology alongside conventional cooling methods. This tiny structure of the device is stable due to its excellent construction and flawless finishing. Compared to its predecessor, the thickness has increased slightly due to the active cooling feature, although it still has a thin profile just under 24 millimeters. With dimensions of nearly 15 centimeters in length and only 7.6 centimeters in depth, this small PC offers a space-efficient solution for desktop use. The option for VESA mounting further enhances its versatility, and the required fitting materials are conveniently included in the package.

Connectivity

Despite its small size, the Zotac Zbox pico PI430A contains all the necessary connectors, despite its restrictions. Three USB 3.2 ports are present, one of which is Type-C compliant. Nevertheless, the device cannot be powered by the Type-C connector. There is a microSD card reader as well as HDMI (2.0) and DisplayPort (1.4) ports for connecting monitors.

WLAN module

The Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX101 module that comes with the Zotac Zbox pico PI430AJ is non-replaceable and supports frequencies up to 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. Its performance on the test is mediocre. However, it showed consistent values for both sending and receiving. Our router while testing was the Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000. Additionally, the mini PC provides an RJ45 socket for a wired network connection, allowing for data transfer rates of up to 1 GBit/s.

Warranty

According to the warranty conditions, Zotac provides a 12-month standard warranty with the purchase of the Zotac Zbox pico PI430AJ.

Maintenance

The Zotac Zbox pico PI430AJ should require minimal maintenance. If you purchase the device as a barebone version, installing an SSD is a straightforward process. The underside is secured with four screws and can be easily removed. Upon disassembling the device, it was observed that the producer has incorporated small dust filters on the sides, which should help maintain a clean interior even with prolonged use. Further disassembly to clean the fan is unnecessary, as the integrated AirJet cooling unit is a self-contained system directly attached to the processor as a heat sink. After a few years, it might be worthwhile to consider replacing the thermal paste on the processor.

Performance - Intel Core i3 with 8 cores

Equipped with the Intel Core i3-N300, the efficient SoC provides eight native computing cores. The processor's power limits are set with a power consumption ranging from 7 to 25 watts. During our tests, we did not approach the maximum power limit. The SoC is supported by 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, which is soldered onto the board. The SSD is a 512 GB model, which is a suitable storage capacity.

Testing conditions

We conducted all performance tests using the maximum performance energy profile. Different energy-saving profiles were only employed for energy consumption and volume measurements. Additional details regarding our testing criteria can be found here.

Processor

The Zotac Zbox pico PI430AJ is powered by the Intel Core i3-N300. With its 8 cores, the SoC clearly outperforms the Intel N200 in the Asus ExpertCenter PN42. According to the specifications, our test sample can access up to 25 watts. However, during our tests, we couldn't come close to this value, leading to performance that is only marginally better than that of the competitors despite the active AirJet cooling unit. After obtaining an overall average score, the small PC comes in fifth place and secures victory solely in the internal competition. Nonetheless, it places well in particular tests that require multi-core performance. This is evident in the AIDA64 tests, where the Zotac Zbox pico PI430AJ emerges as the fastest device by a considerable margin.

Zotac Zbox pico PI430AJ vs. Cinebench-R15 Continuous Loop

The Cinebench R15 Continuous Loop was highly demanding for the Zotac Zbox pico PI430AJ, resulting in elevated temperatures. The Intel Core i3-N300 struggled to maintain a consistently high performance due to these increased CPU temperatures. Telemetry data indicated a gradual decline in performance as the SoC temperature rose. Additionally, the power consumption never exceeded eight watts throughout the test, resulting in a final average score of only 386 points.

Storage devices

512 GB SSD
512 GB SSD

Our test unit of the Zotac Zbox pico PI430AJ comes equipped with a 512 GB NVMe SSD from an unknown manufacturer. The built-in model, at least, fully utilizes the M.2 interface. The SSD's performance is commendable and matches that of the BiWin model in the Acemagic S1.

During testing, we did not encounter any temperature-related issues with the SSD. The SSD is housed in the device from the underside, which is also used for direct heat dissipation. In addition to the pre-installed 3.15-inch SSD, shorter SSDs can be accommodated. Therefore, if you opt for the barebone version of the Zotac Zbox pico PI430AJ, you have the flexibility to choose between 1.18-, 1.65-, or 3.15-inch long SSDs
