Akasa Intros Galileo ST Fanless Mini-STX Chassis

Akasa today introduced the Galileo ST, its fanless chassis for the mini-STX form-factor. The cuboidal pedestal chassis features two compartments. Two-thirds of it is the main compartment with the motherboard tray and room for drive bays and connectivity, while a third of it is a large aluminium heatsink for passively cooling the CPU. Two 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes draw heat from the CPU base, pushing it through this heatsink, where it's passively cooled. The heatsink can handle Intel LGA115x CPUs with TDP of up to 35W.

Measuring 300.6 mm x 154 mm x 58.5 mm (WxDxH), the case is made almost entirely of brushed aluminium with diamond-cut edges. The case can hold up to two 2.5-inch drives. Other nifty features include holes for WLAN antennae, front-panel connectivity with one each of type-A and type-C USB 3.1 ports (standard header), and HDA audio jacks. The company didn't reveal pricing.

I'm guessing the left side with heatsink is detachable so you can insert the CPU into socket and place the heatsink with heatpipes and CPU plate over the actual CPU.
