Calyos Unveils the NGS Cube Passive-Cooled Gaming Desktop

Calyos, makers of compact workstations, unveiled the NGS Cube, a passively-cooled gaming desktop with performance-segment hardware. The star-attraction here is the case itself, which is made of aluminium, and encloses a network of heatsinks, heat pipes, and bases; and is capable of handling thermal loads of up to 200W. That gives it just enough muscle to cool the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 Mini graphics card it includes (up to 120W TDP), and a quad-core CPU with TDP of up to 65W. Driving it all together is an ASUS Z170I Pro Gaming motherboard. The company is expected to showcase the NGS Cube at the 2017 International CES, with sales starting soon after.

That's neat looking, but I bet it's going to cost a small fortune.

Considering Streacom's DB-4 is around $300 , you maybe right this mItx case is going to cost a fortune.

That was one of my first thoughts too. It will also make a neat space heater for a room.

So now companies are ripping off case designs from humidifiers? What's next, gaming PCs made from toasters?

Honestly, sometimes it's just beyond my comprehension to understand some people who design systems
(like who in the world would have guessed that someone would design a nextgen HD console with ddr3 as the video memory type in 2012, and yet, there were guys at Microsoft who got serious money on the monthly basis for achieving that with the xbox1)

I did some open bench passive experiments with the 6600K and the GTX 1060, and I can tell you that if the user doesn't have AC, this will non-stop throttle under load on a hot summer day, no question about that.
If the fins are large enough on the 1060 mini, a single 12-14cm silent 800rmp FDB fan spinning 50-60% on the top of the unit would be more than enough to make this build perfect, and nobody would hear that for sure.
