The Galatico Chassis by Akasa Resembles a Big CPU Cooler

Akasa, the taiwan manufacturer of compact PC cases and reasonably priced cooling systems, has unveiled its plans to release a modern Galatico chassis for Intel NUC systems, compatible with the compact Intel NUC NUC6i7KYK computer.



This product is remarkable for aluminium lips on each side, which act as a heatsink for the processing unit. Four copper heat pipes transfer heat from the 45 W Intel Core i7-6770HQ (4 cores/8 threads, 2.6/3.5 GHz, Iris Pro Graphics 580) CPU to the framework. All case components are produced with the use of aluminium, so Galatico can be called a huge CPU cooler. Inner structure offers a seat for a 2.5-inch drive. The dimensions of the specialty are 383 х 213 х 93 mm.


The front and back interface ports sets correspond to Intel NUC mini PC slots, excluding the card reader slot.


Unfortunately, the exact price and retail starting date are unknown, but, presumably, Akasa Galatico will cost $300–400.
