Already selling in Japan as mentioned in the earlier Akiba post in this thread.A Timely Reminder... This is more for those who are new to small form factor rigs
along with its tiny PCB, compact casing, low profile HSF or convenient CLC, related factors leading to generally poor cooling as a whole.
And for those who still intend to o'c on such systems, it's almost mandatory to actively cool the onboard components else heat trapping may occur at the mobo level. It's easy to do so on an open test bench like what I did here but it's definitely way more challenging to do likewise once the final rig is encased.
A 2K rpm 80mm fan resting on the Corsair H55 CLC actively cooling the onboard power and Southbridge heatsinks.
This is probably no brainer stuff to most but it's just as easily forgotten too.
