Intel NUC5CPYH
« on: November 30, 2019, 01:17:03 am »
I recently bought a used NUC5CPYH on ebay.com for only 69 $. With customs and shipping, the device cost me 106 €. A new one would cost about 115 €, and there are newer models with quad core processors for just a few € more - so in retrospect the decision to buy it was not as smart as I thought in the beginning. ;)  Still, it is a nice and quiet little machine.

I put 8 GB RAM and a 120 GB SSD in it. It is fine for surfing the web, writing, image editing and some programming. It also runs Minecraft with slightly reduced settings.

Fanless too?

No. But you (almost) don't hear the fan.

I have a couple of very similarly specced Asrock Beebox J3160's
https://www.asrock.com/nettop/Intel/Beebox%20Series/index.asp
they too have a fan, but you can't hear it unless you get your ear very close to it.

I love these things .. currently KODI boxes serving content from my NAS to TV :)
