I've had a Intel NUC with an i5 CPU, W10 pro, 16G Ram, 2T D drive, and a Plextor PX 128S3G C/Boot drive, since late march 2018. Other then thermal problems(throttle events - it is fanless), I've had few problems that aren't self-induced. I wish it had had a larger boot drive, but this is what I had the money to buy with.
If you do go with a 'bare-bones' Intel NUC from Newegg, make sure you get the motherboard with an Iris plus 655 graphics chip. The I+ 640 is a weenie POS, and with the i5 tends to choke & over heat when I run some of my security scans, such as Adlice 'RogueKiller', or when I rip a dvd.
So I always run CPUID HWmonitor and task manager/resource monitor, CPUID HW is so much more versatile free tool then any thing else I know of.The OTHER thermal mitigation I've done is jerry-rig/duct tape the upholstery tool from my vacuum cleaner and run my vac as a make-shift fan - a very large & noisy fan.
So if I ever can save enough to get a NUC with an i7, 32g ram, 2T M2 ssd's, I'm looking for a 4in square - 2in high perforated or extruded...thing that a fan, or much smaller vac, can be attached to.
Or Intel can put better thermal paste/larger heat sink on the CPU???
Ya think?
My poor little NUC looks like a mutant rino tipped on it's side.
