Can be so tiny as really a computer? This is probably the first question, which one is at Intel's NUC motherboards. And the straightforward answer is yes, even with already integrated, powerful CPU. Finally, it is a matter of firing its display with high-performance components. A completely different one, however, to realize the whole thing on a tiny miniature system.
Akasa's Newton AC case has been developed for the same systems, which can be used either flat or directly on the monitor's VESA mounts. Specially designed for the NUC boards, it is very space-saving and, above all, flat-shaped, but in addition to these purely practical aspects, it also brings a very noble look to the table or behind the monitor.
A front of brushed aluminum makes the black Akasa Newton a discreet but still stale contemporary, which is thus also classified as an HTPC dwelling in every HiFi landscape. The upper and outer edges are almost completely covered with aluminum cooling ribs, which makes sense in that the housing itself is the cooler and does not need any fans. In other words, the NUC system is completely silent in Akasa Newton AC. The Celeron CPU and a contact surface of the housing come into direct contact.
Heat transfer paste is supplied for ideal heat transfer. In addition, VESA mounting screws, mainboard screws, rubber feet and all necessary cables and accessories are included in the scope of delivery in order to commission the mini system (external power supply must be purchased separately) and at a VESA place. Via the Heatsink plate, the waste heat then flows uniformly into the housing and is delivered to the ambient air via the slats - absolutely silent!
