Product Description

The Next Unit of Computing

Responsive performance. Fanless, Passive Cooling, Solid State.

This Intel® Next Unit of Computing PC is powered by a 5th generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor on a 4-by-4-inch motherboard and enclosed in an Impactics D5NU1 Solid Aluminium Passive cooling case.

Using an ultra-compact design the Intel® NUC packages a fully scalable, computing solution in the smallest possible form factor. This new generation computing device provides a flexible, customizable engine to drive digital signage, kiosks, and intelligent computing for small spaces, or anywhere else you can imagine.

With a solid state SSD disk drive, and being totally fanless, there are no moving parts. No noise, just total silence.

Please note that this model now does have a front I.R port.

The HDMI port on the NUC uses the small mini-HDMI connector. If you need a mini-HDMI to HDMI lead, please select from the options.

Configured to your specification

We can configure this unit with up to 1TB SSD or 2TB HDD and 16GB DDR3 Memory. Please choose from the options or contact us if you need a custom configuration. We can also pre-install with Windows or other Operating Systems.

If you choose the Windows installation option, as well as installing on the internal SSD drive, so it is ready to use out of the box, we also include a USB memory stick with the Windows installation, so you can rebuild Windows from scratch if you need to.

You need to supply your own Monitor, Keyboard and Mouse. Please contact us if you need any recommendations or want custom additions bundled with your order.

All units are fully tested prior to shipment:

✔ BIOS updated to latest version
✔ Memory tested with Memtest86+
✔ System soak tested with Passmark BurninTest

Differences between Fanless and Retail (with-Fan) NUCs

The retail intel NUC models, NUC5i5RYK and NUC5i5RYH, have exactly the same motherboard inside as this fanless model. So any reviews of performance of those retail models will be identical to the fanless version. Those retail models have a cooling fan that normally runs quietly, but can be heard when under load. The fanless model we are selling here is totally silent and has the benefit of not needing any maintenance, as there is no fan to clean or build up of internal dust or dirt.


Optional Wi-Fi / Bluetooth Antenna Add On

To make use of the internal AC-7265 Wifi chip you need to choose the optional Antenna Add-on. This adds 2x Antennas to the rear of the unit.

  1. Amazed by this little PC 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Nov 2015

    I've had one of these machines for over a month now - running all day, everyday.

    I have an SSD and an M.2 SSD - Ubuntu on one, Windows 10 on the other. They work fine and dual boot no problem.

    Also running dual monitors as well with no issues.

    The machine has worked flawlessly. I love the difference not having a fan makes - total silence.

    The core CPU temps run typically at around 45-50 degrees C - far less than I expected - the case does a really great job of dissipating the heat.

    I'd recommed this machine to anyone.
