Akasa today rolled out the Cypher EB, a premium aluminium case for the Intel NUC 12 Extreme, with preparation for a cooling-solution that's tailored to draw heat from all the important components on the motherboard. Measuring 200 mm x 216 mm x 53 mm (WxDxH), the case features an all-aluminium body. It supports NUC12EDBi9 and NUC12EDBi7 motherboards. You orient the board upside down, so the cooling solution draws air from the vents below, directing exhaust through one of the side panels. The case features two USB 3.1 type-A front-panel ports, and cutouts designed to align with the connectors of the two compatible motherboard models. Optional components include the cooling solution, a stand to orient the case sideways, and a 150 W power-brick.

I'd love to take one AMD's upcoming APUs (Zen4 + RDNA3) and put it in a case like this....yes, I know it's meant for a NUC, but I'm sure it's nothing a die grinder and a TiG welder couldn't solve....I've been wanting to do a very small SFF build with an APU for a long time, but it took until the Ryzen 6000 mobile range of APUs for an APU to have enough graphical horsepower to make it worthwhile, that's why I'm assuming the upcoming APUs with RDNA3 and DDR5 should finally be that APU.

Akasa do make general purpose iTX cases, and I'm pretty sure there are a few AMD boards that are compatible.
