Akasa has unveiled its Newton V series of passive cases for Intel’s NUC platform. Akasa first showed these all aluminium cases at Compute 2013 and we know that they will be available in black, silver and gold. The passive cooling solution works by drawing heat from the processor, chipset and other hot components towards the body of the case. This means the case doubles up as a large heatsink.
Akasa have stated that this particular case is designed for Intel’s D53427RK NUC motherboard only. The Intel D53427RK features a Core i5 3427U 17W dual core. The Akasa Newton V measures in at 150 x 150 x 47mm and weighs 950g. There are VESA wall mounting holes and two holes for WiFi or Bluetooth Antennae. The front panel includes three USB ports of which one is USB 3.0. Pricing is TBA, availability should follow within a month.
