Akasa Plato X8 Slim Fanless 8th Gen NUC Chassis

Akasa’s Plato X8 makes it possible to passively cool Intel’s newest 8th generation NUCs for totally silent computing!

Features

  1. Fanless chassis for 8th gen NUCs
  2. Stylish front panel diamond edge finish
  3. Support IR remote and dual mics
  4. Two front panel USB 3.0 ports
  5. Supports 2.5in HDD/SSD

Akasa’s aluminium Plato chassis has been updated specifically for Intel’s 8h generation NUCs. Just like other fanless NUC chassis from previous generation the Plato’s chassis passively cools the CPU without the need of any fans, making it now possible to cool the 8th gen NUC in pure silence.

As well as offering silent cooling for whichever CPU chosen, the Plato is able to accommodate a single 2.5” hard drive or SSD. Of course opting for a HDD rather than a SSD will mean there is some operational noise from the hard drive. We therefore recommend opting for a SSD to maintain the silent attributes this chassis offers. Please note that the maximum height of the installed hard drive can not exceed 9.5mm.

The chassis features two USB3.0 ports and has support for IR and dual microphones at the front of the case. At the rear, slots are available to utilise the full range of ports the 8th gen NUC offers along with a Kensinton lock.

“Akasa Newton S7”

“I purchased an Akasa Newton S7 case for my Intel NUC board. It arrived on time as described. However while this is a great product there are a few things about it I didn’t like. The first thing that caught my attention was that the heat sink is painted over. This will have a negative impact on the thermal performance, as paint does not have the conductivity that aluminum does (a copper block would have been even better). As I proceeded with the build I found that the cables for the front PCB were extremely stiff which meant that quite a bit of pressure was applied to my board where they attached. Also the case was not quite tall enough to accommodate the unyielding cables, meaning that I had difficulty installing in the bottom plate. The front LED also stopped working within a few days. And if you ripped your board from a NUC chassis, forget getting the internal wifi antennas to work inside the case. The supplied thermal pads for the CPU are also not a good idea as thermal grease is substantially better. I actually used some noctua NT-H1. However, all things considered I am happy with the product. My computer is now absolutely silent and the idle and load temps are actually better than they were with active cooling. Hopefully Akasa can fix some of my gripes in future iterations of this product.”
