Can so tiny really be a computer? This is probably the first question that arises at NUC Intel motherboards. And the straight answer is: yes, even with an integrated, high-performance CPU. Finally, it is one thing to fire up his display with high-performance components. A completely different, however, to realize the whole thing on a tiny miniature system.
For precisely the same systems the Tesla T-case from Akasa was developed (here as an OEM version without brand logo), which can be used either lying flat or directly to VESA mounts the monitor. Specifically tailored to the said NUC boards, it is very space-saving and especially flat build, but brings in addition to these purely practical viewpoint, a very elegant appearance on the table or behind the monitor:
A brushed aluminum face makes the black Akasa Tesla T to a restrained yet totschicken contemporaries, who thus submits itself wonderfully as a HTPC dwelling in every hi-fi landscape. The front is broken only by a USB 3.0 port, the obligatory power button and a status LED.
Top and outer edges are almost completely provided with aluminum cooling fins, which has its meaning is that the case itself is the cooler here and completely fanless. That is, the NUC system works in Akasa Tesla T completely silent. For the Atom CPU and a contact surfaces of the housing are in direct contact.
For ideal heat transfer thermal compound is supplied. In addition, VESA Mounting screws, motherboard Screws, rubber feet and all necessary cables and accessories are included to take the mini system in operation (external power supply must be purchased separately!) And be attached to a VESA-space. About the heatsink plate then passes the waste heat evenly in the housing and is discharged through the fins to the ambient air - absolutely silent!
