EXCLUSIVE: 2 new passive cases from Akasa

On the heels of the successful Euler, Akasa will will expand its range of passive cases with Galileo and Newton later this year.

Galileo is an ultra slim chassis designed for Thin Mini-ITX motherboards. This all-aluminium beauty stands at a mere 37mm in height and supports CPUs up to 35W TDP. It's totally fanless, VESA mountable, and completely enclosed to prevent dust intrusion.

Newton is a passively cooled case for Intel's NUC and looks very much like an Euler Mini. Ruggedly engineered and VESA mountable, the Newton is the latest entry in a series of fanless NUC solutions from various manufacturers. Competition is going to be fierce.

More details should be available at COMPUTEX Tapei, June 4 - 8, 2013.
