Akasa Also Shows Off Newton NUC Cases in Three Trims

Akasa's Newton NUC (next unit of computing) fanless case made its debut with the Galileo, way back in March. The case was formally unveiled at Computex, in three brushed-metal trims: the black one we've already seen, silver, and gold, all of which are made of anodized aluminum. Like most other 4" x 4" NUC cases, Newton's body doubles up as heatsink for the CPU. The cases will be available in variants that support the D33217GKE and D33217CK connector layouts. The cases further feature Kensington lock slots, and VESA mounts, so you can tuck them away behind your displays.

In Win Also Shows Off KingSize H-Frame Case

The original H-Frame won In Win quite some praise for ingenuity, but left enthusiasts asking for something similar-looking and bigger. The company responded with the new KingSize H-Frame, on display at Computex. Pictured below next to the original, the KingSize H-Frame is an ATX full-tower that supports large motherboards, in the EATX, HPTX, XL-ATX, SSI-EEB, SSI-CEB, form-factors, apart from the common ATX. Much like the original, its design revolves around stacks of metal rings working as framework for the rest of the case, only this time they protrude out of the front sheet in a jagged pattern. In Win also replaced the brushed aluminum side panels with the same tempered, mirror-finish glass as the tòu.

The KingSize H-Frame offers a 5.25-inch drive bay that's slanted, an internal drive cage that can be configured to offer six 3.5-inch bays, or a combination of four 3.5-inch and two 2.5-inch bays. All bays feature SATA back-planes, letting you slot in and out drives easily. Being an HPTX-supporting case, it features 11 expansion slot bays. The front-panel is particularly interesting, with eight USB 3.0 ports (six on the front, two on the top, all with standard headers), HD audio jacks, and a 3.5-inch hot-plug SATA bay. The motherboard tray gives you enough room for graphics cards up to 42 cm long. Cards such as the Radeon HD 7990 should comfortably fit in, with room to spare. On the cooling front, the KingSize H-Frame offers two 140 mm front intakes, a 140 mm rear exhaust, and two 140 mm bottom intakes that can make room for a 280 x 140 mm radiator.

Phanteks Enthoo Primo Case Pictured

Phanteks graduated from being behind some seriously great coolers and fans, to cases. The company kicked off its enthusiast PC case lineup with the Enthoo Primo. This ATX full-tower easily rivals contemporaries from Corsair, Lian Li, and the likes, in terms of quality, materials, and features. What sets the Enthoo Primo apart from other cases is its large (≥10 cm) clearance between the motherboard tray and the panel behind it. This gives you a large amount of room to route cables, coolant tubes, and even tuck away some parts of your liquid-cooling loop, such as pumps and reservoirs.

The Enthoo Primo from Phanteks features eight expansion slot bays, letting you use dual-slot graphics cards on the bottommost slot on your motherboard, six 3.5-inch drive trays spread across two cages, each tray can hold two 9.5 mm-thick 2.5-inch drives. The case offers five 5.25-inch bays that hide behind a door in the front-panel. Cooling system includes two 120 mm front intakes, a 120 mm rear exhaust, and provision for additional fans on the top (3x 120 mm), side-panel, and bottom. A 6-channel voltage-based fan-controller comes included. Phanteks stated that the price could range between 199 to 249 EUR, when the case hits markets in July.
We also managed to score a video presentation of the Enthoo Primo. Watch it after the break.

GIGABYTE's newest PC case, the Luxo K10, is largely identical to its recently launched IF 400. The two have the same exact dimensions, inner chassis, the same panels, but differ with the front one.

Streacom Shows Off Upcoming NUC Case

Streacom gave us a sneak-peek into its upcoming case for Intel's next unit of computing (NUC) form-factor. Made of aluminum and ABS, the case doubles up as heatsink for the NUC's hot components (such as CPU and PCH). It features a universal CPU block, so the case can adapt to future NUC boards with CPUs at different spots.

The sides of the case are not made of aluminum, this is where the NUC's WLAN/Bluetooth antennae attach, and so an ABS panel boosts signal strength. The case is designed specifically for Intel's D33217GKE motherboard, with ports mapped for its two HDMI connectors, three USB ports, power, and Ethernet. It will be available in two color options, silver (pictured below) and carbon-black. Availability is expected sometime in Q2 2013.
