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.
For the 5th and 6th generation NUC boards, Akasa's Newton-S6 chassis has been developed, 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 S6 a discreet but still stranger contemporary, which also fits perfectly as HTPC housing into every HiFi landscape. The front is broken only by two USB port openings, an audio port and an opening for mounting an IR receiver. With this, it is possible to remotely control the installed system? Ideal for a living room PC.
The top 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 require a fan. That is, the NUC system works completely silent in the Akasa Newton S6. For this, the Atom 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 minisystem (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!
