The Ribbed Design Turns Akasa Newton S7 Case into a Heatsink

The Akasa Co. keeps releasing cases for system cards, intended for Intel NUC series mini PCs. The latest Akasa Newton S7 sample is aimed at Intel NUC7i5BNH, NUC7i5BNK, NUC7i3BNH and NUC7i3BNK sets boards, and the most important matter for replacing a standard case with a new one is aluminium utilization, providing passive CPU cooling. The framework upper lid and sides are made ribbed to perform the role of an effective heatsink.



On the front panel there are two USB 3.0 ports, the power button, the infrared sensor, as well as the headset and mic jack. The back panel has two connectors for removable antennas of wireless modules. Inside there is enough space for a 2.5-inch drive, not higher than 9.5 mm.


The Akasa Newton S7 framework’s modest dimensions (176.5 x 200 x 53.5 mm only) and the standard VESA mounting let fix this specialty on a display’s back panel.
