The Intel® NUC platform was designed to deliver full size computing power in a TINY package and the NC2 stays true to that vision.
At only 59mm, the NC2 is only 11mm taller than the NC1 but provides the additional internal space to fit a 2.5″ drive. The NC2 also keeps all of the great features of the NC1, compact and stylish design, ultra efficient passive cooling, modular assembly, and acrylic sides which allow for internal WiFi / Bluetooth, making it the perfect case for an ultra small and silent PC.
The case is also supplied with a short SATA Data + Power cable which is the perfect length for the internal SSD and gets you up and running right out of the box. If you need internal WiFi or vertical mounting, the NC2 is compatible with the existing VM1 VESA compatible mount and the InFi2 Antenna.
PRECISION MILLED FROM CUSTOM EXTRUSION PROFILES
The NC2 is constructed from custom extruded aluminium profiles that are then precision milled. This gives an incredibly high quality feel and finish whilst also allowing for easy customisation and adjustments of the cutouts to match different NUC motherboard models.
VERSATILE & MODULAR ASSEMBLY
There is not much to the NC2, its an incredibly simple design yet it offers many possibilities to suit different applications and NUC motherboard models. Its modular design makes it easy to customise and the acrylic sides provide permeability for internal radio devices such as WiFi and Bluetooth.
IN KEEPING WITH NUC DESIGN GOALS
The Next Unit of Computing aka ‘NUC’ was designed to offer desktop performance in an ultra compact package, a form factor noticeably smaller than ITX. The NC2 not only makes the NUC silent but just as importantly maintains a key purpose of the NUC platform by maintaining the ultra compact footprint.
Reviews & Media Coverage
In the past, CPU TDP was a measure of the maximum required cooling performance of a cooler to maintain the normal operating temperature of the CPU. With the advent of performance “boosting” technologies, the specified TDP is no longer an accurate representation of the required cooling performance, but more a baseline reference. When these technologies are enabled, CPUs can boost well above the specified TDP rating and they try to take advantage of thermal overheads. It is therefore important when choosing a CPU for a fanless case to consider the actual maximum TDP that the CPU can output. Wherever possible, aim for a CPU TDP that is below the case TDP rating or consider BIOS settings that will limit the CPU to the maximum TDP supported by the case.
As the NC2 is no longer sold directly to the consumer market, no updated versions are listed, we do however manufacture custom solutions using the NC2 with updated port cutouts and cooler mounting for current generation NUCs
Yes, we still manufacture the NC2 but currently it’s only available for B2B customers and with minimum orders quantities.
