    While it's a little bigger it does have slightly more expandability and doesn't require proprietary cooling on the cpu etc.

    Best thing of all... it would come in cheaper and potentially better performing (option of using AMD).

    I suppose real selling point to the nuc is that it is smaller but I'm not sure that's enough to warrant the price.

    I can foresee a compact build in my future, might even make my sons next PC aither a NUC or an ITX build... Although thermals would be my biggest concern - I wonder how well (or badly) the Nvidia 30 series founders edition cooler would work in one of these shoebox builds?

    It makes me chuckle that you can shoehorn a gaming PC into a package that is the same sort of size as a multi drive NAS

    Re: Intel NUC 11 Extreme Kit (Beast Canyon)

    Personally I don't get the point of large footprint "small" cases. It does not save space at all in most circumstances. I have bought plenty of computers with the intent of having them set up in limited space and the only thing I never had to care about is height. Yet the case for this "NUC" like many others is essentially mainly saving on height. A Corsair One may be expensive but at least it serves a purpose.
