Intel NUC akasa case [SOLD]

Details below but the short version is that these are the NUC7 models that caused all the fuss on the legendary Novel Way thread on the Computer Audiophile/Audiophile Style forum.

Default config is installed with 4GB Apacer RAM that everyone was raving about on CA/AS. 4GB is fine if you want to run this as an endpoint but not enough for a server.

For Server or Server/Player I can include either 16GB or 32GB normal RAM

16GB ‘normal’ RAM instead of the 4GB Apacer RAM - additional £30
32GB ‘normal’ RAM instead of the 4GB Apacer RAM - additional £80

Normal = CT12174639 Ballistix Sport LT 32GB Kit (2 x 16GB) DDR4-2400 SODIMM

This NUC ships WITHOUT an operating system. The buyer will need to buy their operating system of choice and install it.

I WILL include a USB flash drive with Ubuntu installed so that the buyer can immediately verify the NUC is working.

There is no SSD installed currently in this NUC as I was using it as an endpoint booting Audiolinux (not included) to RAM. But I can include a 512GB SSD and install it for say another £50

Can include an optional ‘audiophile’ linear power supply as I also have a Paul Hynes SR3 PSU’s spare - which I can include for an additional £220.
