FREE Akasa Newton X

Post by MikeC » Tue Aug 05, 2014 10:54 am

OK, here's the deal for SPCR reviewer wannabes.

I just received a sample of the Akasa Newton X fanless chassis for D54250WYB or D34010WYB. This is very similar to the Tesla H I reviewed, but with room for just one 2.5" drive instead of 2.

The NUC board I reviewed the Tesla H with is in that case & I'm loathe to take it apart to put into this one -- because the risk of the board breaking after the manhandling I've already given it seems high. So, my proposition is this:

I'll give you this case if you can review it using the same methodologies I used for the Tesla & the Logic Supply fanless case. There's really no acoustics to speak of -- it's all thermal testing. You do need one of those boards, which might be more easily (and cheaply) found as a NUC kit w/ stock case. I'd want the thing written up in simple HTML (or text if that's all you want to handle), and finished within a month.

Let me know if you're interested, asap!
