    During CES 2014 Gigabyte already uncovered the product, but check out the Brix Pro DIY PC kit, a small media powerhouse with Intel’s new and more powerful Iris Pro 5200 integrated graphics....

    That thing is a little beast. It's $649 @ newegg for the i7-4770R setup.
    Sounds perfect for an HTPC. And its tiny @ 62 x 111.4 x 114.4 mm. That's a little smaller than 3x 120mm case fans stacked up!

    Neat little HTPC. But why call it 'DIY' when its practically already assembled?

    Man, if there was a black and white one, that'd be so sexy.

    This thing would look pretty cool on my office desk.

    Exactly. Plus why did they opt for eye-screwing red? Sure it'll be difficult to lose it, but they should also think about the negative aspects of such paint.

    Green and Black, and I'm sold.... The red/black color scheme is the only part of the case I don't like.

    I just purchased the Brix Pro (i5 model) this week for my wife and we're still waiting to take delivery.
    I'm loading it with a 128GB Samsung S40 Pro 2.5" SSD and Corsair Vengeance 1866 1.35v ram.

    Speaking of colours, My wife has asked me to spray it white and silver for her, which I'll be doing before I even power it on for the first time.

    Bright red really is a drastic choice of colours, being the only one? available for the core i5 model.

    Her work area/craft area at home features all white, with a 27" AOC monitor (with a picture frame we custom made and painted white covering the front black plastics.

    I'll post pics when I have it painted up. Currently we're still waiting for our local pc store to take delivery of it for us.

    This thing is cool looking, but the color is a bit loud. may get my sister to jump on one of these if she can convince her husband.

    It'll look great in white/silverish kind of like the actual Intel NUC cases.
    Who has bright red accents except for people who bought into the Acer Ferarri branded laptops?
