PHYSICAL DETAILS

For a fanless barebones the case is remarkably small, similar to what you would expect for a regular nettop with a fan. By our measurements, the chassis is 15.2 x 11.0 x 3.5 cm, making the total case volume about 585 mL. Our unit weighed 700 grams after outfitting it with a Kingston 2GB DDR3-1333 SODIMM and an Intel X25-V 40GB solid state drive.


The case is composed of a stylish plastic front bezel and a steel shell with ventilation holes on the sides and a 3.5 mm thick aluminum heatsink on top. When oriented vertically using the included stands, it measures 15.8 cm (just over 6 inches) tall.


Located on the rear panel are four USB 2.0 ports, a DVI-I connector, a WiFi antenna, and a line-out jack. The two gigabit ethernet ports and lack of multi-channel audio and HDMI connectivity suggests this barebones isn't aimed at consumers.


The top cover is removed via 10 small Phillips head screws.


The motherboard has two SATA ports, one mini PCI-E slot (populated by the included WiFi adapter), and a slot for just a single DDR3 SO-DIMM. A combined SATA power/data cable is included for one 2.5" SATA device.


Brass standoffs hold the 2.5" drive tray above the circuit board. The drive is screwed in from the side.


The only physical issue we had with the barebones was the stiff and slightly longer than necessary SATA data cable. An odd bend is required to get the cover on.


Viewed from the side. Though not visible, the heatsink portion has two rectangular protrusions on the interior with thermal pads to transfer heat from the chipset and APU.
