        Yeah, exactly. But hey, at least as a server (and a very power efficient server) it may do.

          It'll definitely be more useful in a year after Apple yet again intentionally slows down their OS so you're forced to buy the latest generation hardware and throw the old one in a landfill.

            They also went with liquid cooling, so it makes a lot of sense to take an off-the-shelf chassis with liquid cooling support which are basically all be targeted at gamers these days.

            Those wanting something more serious-looking can always get the standalone module and plug it into a COM-HPC baseboard of their choice: https://www.adlinktech.com/Products/..._Altra?lang=en.

              Because it's not like there aren't water-cooling AIO-compatible cases which don't come with RGB bling. Like Fractal Design, Antec, several options from Corsair, etc...
