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.

Nice how they incorporated the power button directly into the cooling fins. Not so sure about the sides of this unit...I'd like to see better pictures of them.

Best,

"the case doubles up as heatsink for the NUC's hot components"

Sounds cool, does that actually work?

Yes the entire case absorbs the heat and transfers it to the area with greatest surface area (i.e the top). Although something as tiny as that I wouldn't trust with more then 45w TDP rated CPU's. Good thing the motherboard it uses (the only one it can) has a soldered 18w i3.
