    I like the idea of these but I can only think they're aimed as businesses that have limited space. And if the cost is the same as an AIO then I expect thats the route they'll go.

    the concept of minimalism is good yet it did sacrifice the opportunity to water cool

    Not really as Akasa won't have the level of support or management tools that businesses need.

    I have an almost identical case for my NUC from Akasa, very effective at removing heat from the i3. The build quality is very good but mine gets quite warm after prolonged use with high bit rate video (I use it as HTPC) so wonder how well it will do with larger TDP CPUs

    Why do you need to watercool processors with less than 15w TDP ?

    Re: Akasa Euler ST is the first fanless chassis for Intel Mini-STX boards

    Bit weedy for one of those, they're normally 25-35w-ish. That is a brilliant idea for a pc though - I wonder if the base of the bottle is cool enough to not inconvenience an APU? You'd need a light source of course, but LED's on top should suffice
