Logic Supply ML100G-50




Tired of mini-PCs with hidden and ineffective CPU coolers? Treat yourself with Logic Supply's own fanless NUC. The ML100G-50 rocks a Skylake i5-6300U and is fully customizable. Definitely on the expensive side, but carefully designed (and probably indestructible too).

Enjoy the Silence (and the throttling)


Cute commercial announcing the Kaby Lake ZBOX. We do have a love-hate relationship with ZOTAC. On the one hand, we're very grateful for their commitment to passive cooling (we mean it, THANK YOU ZOTAC!). On the other hand, their cooling systems are often weird, convoluted, and ultimately disappointing. All hope is not lost, though.

Acer Aspire U27 is a fanless all-in-one


Let's take a moment to congratulate Acer for one of the first passively-cooled all-in-one desktop. No mention of the actual CPU (we're betting on a 15W Core-U) but still a step in the right direction. Your move, Apple.

FSP Windale 6 supercooler



Coming from nowhere, power supply specialist FSP launches a massive CPU cooler, the Windale 6. Actively cooled, the 6 direct touch heat pipes / 823 g cooler is designed for TDP up to 240W, but could be a good option for a low-power processor in passive mode, especially at only $48.

Fanless Apollo Lake & Kaby Lake NUC cases




Akasa's Newton AC is compatible the affordable Apollo Lake NUC (NUC6CAYH / NUC6CAYS) while the Newton S7 will handle the 15W i3 (NUC7i3BNK / NUC7i3BNH) and i5 (NUC7i5BNK / NUC7i5BNH) models. The i7 NUC features a 28W processor that would require a larger heat sink case.

Please note that these new chassis support all the NUC features, including front microphones for easy and convenient spying on you.
