Silencing the NUC 12 Pro (using the Akasa Turing case)

Honestly, the hardest thing was to take the NUC 12 Pro motherboard out of the original fan-cooled chassis. Building with the Akasa Turing WS is unbelievably easy: just add the included thermal compound, screw the tiny motherboard to the 4 standoffs, and you're good to go. Thermals are great (29°C idle, 80°C under heavy load) we just wish the power button was more substantial and had a more satisfying "click" sound. Granted, our final PC is considerably bigger than the original NUC, but total silence is truly amazing.
