A while ago we presented you with leaked information on Logic Supply's ML300 NUC enclosure, and while its essential design is still the same, it has now been launched and Logic Supply has released a cool product video for it.
The ML300 systems come with the NUC board, some memory, an mSATA SSD, and a number of other options. That said, the notable part of the ML300 systems is the enclosure, which is a larger NUC enclosure with better cooling, and an extra bit of space for use as an expansion bay. Prices start at just over $500.
The case is meant to be a fanless enclosure. Due to its larger size and external design, the entire case acts as a heatsink. Logic Supply also tells you to "put your NUC where it doesn't belong." It is dust-proof, fanless, has a VESA mounting mechanism, and due to the expansion bay can even house things such as battery packs or hard drives (possibly for newer NUCs which might have SATA ports).
More information, as well as purchasing options of the ML300 systems can be found here.

I'd be interested to see an actual thermal report from LS. Intel's millions of dollars in R&D NUC chassis ended up with thermal issues still. I am not sold until LS posts some hard data. Until then, looks like marketing spin to me.
I am going to stick this article where it doesn't belong until I see data.
I'm under the gun with some deadlines today but rest assured - I will post back soon with some empirical evidence on thermal issues re: WiFi & mSATA. I'll throw the CPU info in for good measure while I'm at it.
In the meantime, there are some photos on both our fanned and fanless NUC pages of the wifi/msata thermal solutions.
Check back tomorrow for more detailed response.

John - I'll have to take your word. Can't go wrong with all black.
