Akasa Intros Three Passively-Cooled Intel NUC Enclosures

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 2 comments

Akasa has revealed its Newton NUC enclosures at Computex 2013.

While we already saw the Akasa Newton NUC enclosure in March, it is only now that the case has been officially revealed by the company. The enclosure itself will come in two versions, both with three colors from which to choose. The first version will support the D33217GKE board, while the second one will support the D33217CK board. The difference lies in the connector layouts, since the latter drops an HDMI port in favor of a Thunderbolt port. The colors that will be available are black, silver grey, and gold. All of the bodies are crafted out of aluminum and are anodized to give them the color.

The body of the enclosure itself acts as a heat sink as well, so the units are fanless. Thus, they are fully silent since the NUC platform doesn't have any other moving parts. Furthermore, the enclosures will feature VESA mounts as well as a Kensington lock.

    It would make a nice home entertainment unit for playing movies and such, but a bit expensive for such a simplistic task imo.

    Unfortunatly, the design is copycat from Lacie's external drives. Im still on the search for something original
