Quite a few case-makers are jumping in with replacement cases for Intel's new NUC (next unit of computing) form-factor (Intel Desktop Boards D33217CK and D33217GKE), which beats all established volume/performance standards. Lian-Li's contribution is the PC-N1. This all-aluminum case measures 122 x 40 x 108 mm (WxHxD), which is roughly as big as a router. Following strict form-factor specifications, it lacks any additional drive bays, or active cooling, leaving its high-quality aluminum to do the tedious job of dissipating heat.
