Intel Haswell NUC D54250WYK Includes HTPC Header


If you saw the recent Intel Haswell NUC D54250WYK announcment and thought “hey, that would make a pretty slick HTPC” – go ahead and sit down. Not only does it have all the good stuff like IR, SATA, USB 3.0, etc. that we mentioned before. It also has the HTPC_HEADER on board.

Unfortunately, there isn’t space in the stock chassis to mount the Pulse-Eight internal CEC adapter so a custom enclosure will be required to get the most out of it. That said, frankly I don’t care – this is awesome news!

Hopefully someone steps up to make a suitible enclosure or we will have to do something on Kickstarter :).

  • That’s great news! Was afraid

    That’s great news! Was afraid this feature would die with Intel’s disappearance from the motherboard market. If we could get an internal adapter that would fit these small cases, it would be perfect!

    • It’s really unlikely that

      It’s really unlikely that anyone could make an adapter that will fit inside the chassis. There’s not any space to spare. There are alternate chassis in the works, so that + the Pulse-Eight adapter is the way to go.
