Akasa Announced Newton S Chassis for Broadwell NUC
Bohs Hansen / 1 year ago
Intel’s NUC series are pretty cool devices and they can be used for a lot of different things and usage scenarios. Such a device also needs a fitting enclosure and Akasa thinks so too and expands their Newton series with a new mini chassis.
Akasa has introduced a new chassis for the Broadwell version of the Intel NUC called the Newton S (model number: A-NUC15-A1B). The tiny chassis has fanless cooling thanks to the aluminium it is built from and the included heatsinks that connects the chassis directly to the vital parts, making the whole thing one ‘giant’ heatsink. The compact sized chassis easily fits anywhere and also comes with VESA compatible mounting holes for mounting it directly to a monitor, monitor stand or arm, or other VESA compatible device.

The aluminium chassis only measures 176.5 x 200 x 53.5mm and adds a few things to the package. It comes with extra serial port, two antenna fitting holes for wireless connections, USB 3.0, IR receiver opening and space for one 2.5-inch HDD or SSD up to 9.5mm.
You also get an alternate backplate in the package and everything else to fit any of the following NUC models inside: NUC5i5MYBE, NUC5i5MYHE, NUC5i3MYBE, NUC5i3MYHE, NUC5i5RYH, NUC5i5RYK, NUC5i3RYH, and NUC5i3RYK.
