I bought this to get 4K to the projector. That's what it's all about. BUT, when I try to maximize the processor, the fan sounds like a jet plane! In addition, the processor does not reach maximum speed before it gets too hot and lowers the speed to not burn. Thus, it's never possible to get the maximum speed it boasts! Cooling is a disaster! Sometimes it depends and restarts. I can run video but not much more.

I have been tested and the most computers on the market and I still have to say that this computer surpass my previous experiences. The computer is small and flexible, yet is equipped with one of the better processors on the market, ie one four-core i7 second with HT and with 128MB of L4 cache that improves performance further in both CPU and GPU intensive applications (see performance increase on a i7-5775C alt. i5-5675C vs. other processors). The integrating graphics processor measures not having dedicated graphics card, but goes much distinctive to play if you feel that 1080p on medium settings and an around 40 fps is acceptable and it works great. To squeeze as much performance in such a small computer, of course with some drawbacks, namely, power consumption and heat. This will cause the computer's fan will spin up some under heavy load, but if one is a bit to and from himself, this to improve significantly. The computer goes namely undervoltas significantly from what is standard. Both the CPU and GPU goes to Volta, and thus lower power consumption and heat dissipation significantly. I managed to lower my unit from the CPU to consume about 40 watts during the Cinebench R15 to consume about 27 W. This means a reduction of about 33% and affected the fan speed a lot! Although the GPU went to volta with similar reductions, and resulted in the gambling could be done with a relatively low fan speed and temperature on the computer around 80 degrees. The computer also works to play 2160p 10-bit video with a pleasant experience. Worth commenting on is that the computer's fan sounds a bit under these conditions because it does not have hardware support for 2160p 10-bit, but still manages this in a good way. Overall, I am satisfied how any computer and it has never malfunctioned in any way that behaved strangely. The only drawback must be the lack of hardware support of 2160p 10-bit.

Incredibly lame drivers. Had I known that so many have problems with the device as it appears on various forums, I would have probably waited a few more months before I bought. Here are some of the problems that come up after one day's use: Network drivers will not work from the beginning so you must have access to another computer to download them from Intel for Win10 installation. The use of DisplayPort resulting in a flashing screen goes black for several seconds at a time, even after updating to the latest drivers. I am therefore obliged to use HDMI. The processor overheats when I play non-graphic heavy games like Europa Universalis 4 or HOI4 causing the computer to crash. I have the latest drivers installed, the date hereof. Right now I can use the computer as satisfactory HTPC which feels like overkill given that it is marketed toward "gamers". I give it a week and see if I can straighten it or else go back to Intel.

Bought this Nuc for a couple of days ago, the first impression when you unpack it's quality, easy to install and SSD memory (2133MHz DDR4 CL13 SODIMM HyperX 2x8GB Impact and Samsung 950 Pro 256GB M.2 PCIe SSDs). Then once the installation of Win 10 was ready so I did not have anything the network, either with or without wires, so I had to go out and download drivers for the wireless nätv.kortet online at Intel, think about it before the rest of you start to install this nuc, but then everything went with the others drift ice. Really fast machine, run 4k movies without problems. Saw someone who had complained that whizzing sound of the fan but I have not heard anything since. One problem Jaag encountered was that the 5.1 sound (HDMI) could not be set in the windows but there was a firmware of intel that I downloaded and installed, it works most of the time but sometimes it falls part away when you restart the nuc : a, and I think that is weak by Intel or Microsoft Windows, (do not know who it is due) but hope it fixes itself soon, but you can run through the Toslink (optical) cable as long) comes with an update when they Fixed audio via HDMI, hence the low rating. Otherwise, everything seems to float on very well with this machine, many sockets and memory card slot, very good.

Ordered this from Simply Nuc (https://www.simplynuc.com/product/nuc6i7kyk-full-system) with 32GB DDR4 RAM, optional 512GB SATA M.2 SSD and Windows 10 Home. Using this as a HTPC with Kodi and there is nothing to complain about except that it is not possible to order a remote control (may have missed). Otherwise, I bought one of those mouse / keyboard combo from Kjell & Co and works like clockwork, even with Kodi. I run windows in 4k resolution and 4k movies works as a bell, no lag at all, although I wirelessly streams. It supports the 802.11ac and I will come up approximately 45MB / s on my own wireless network. The type takes no space at all and is not especially warm, what I noticed anyway. A small minus for that I came to is that it only comes with US power connector for the power adapter. But it went to change and has worked without problems. It may be possible to select this when you order, maybe I missed this too. But as I said, overall I am very satisfied with this, mainly because it is able to display 4k.
