Once you add hardware to something like this case those Intel NUC's don't seem to be priced all that bad.

There are not many pictures of the passive cooling either and what capacity it has, where the intakes and vents are. There have been passive cases before and with more sensible mounting of their "heatpipes" because the pipes were not rigid. Plus you can really just buy a small case and attach a large $50 heatsink for passive cooling.

could you give me an example of small case with a large $50 heatsink that can be used passively?

What kind of tests would you guys like to see during my BETA testing?

Combined stress test of CPU/GPU and check if they actually throttle. I would not mind if it will be AMD or Intel or Nvidia. They dared to put some R9-290x on their compatibility list so I am quite curious...

I still think it would be awesome to use the Threadripper socket for an APU.

I believe AMD does have designs for TR4(i think) apu's with HBM mem code named Fenghaung Not sure if they will release it for TR4 (most likely if so) or AM4...or not at all.

Would be great for a WS with massive storage, four+ LSI raid cards in there with 20+ drives and useable GPU/CPU.

All stuck into a tiny SFF case with passive cooling.

20+ drives and a passive case doesn't sound so great, there are better cases with near silent designs.

Thing is priced way outside what I'd be willing to pay for a small case but I like the idea and look of the thing. Should be interesting to see some cooling benchmarks. Personally the deeper I get into system building the more appealing the idea of a compact case becomes.

There's a guy on SFF forums that has a 5L case (without any power brick) with a 8700K and 1080.
