This or the 3rd gen ivy bridge I3 - priced up both and seem around the same price when you add all the bits... Looking for flawless playback and nice snappy GUI control in plex/Xbmc.

thx haslitt

yeah that was the review I saw...

picture of the fan is at the bottom of this page:
http://www.legitreviews.com/intel-nuc-dn2820fykh-bay-trail-system-review_135053/2

as they said here on the review regarding noise its not bad at all and is fairly quiet even when maxed out

http://www.legitreviews.com/intel-nuc-dn2820fykh-bay-trail-system-review_135053/7

obviously in a silent environment and room you will hear it spinning.

I really wished intel would have added some further thought into these nucs and created a passive heatsink/case by default !

Lucky we do have akasa and others with passive cases
About as useful as a gnome by a pond.

Is this fanless ?

Nope has a small fan on the underside just like all the intel nucs.

From the reviews it suggest the fan is more quiet compared to other nucs though so it should be tad quieter.

A range of passive cooled nuc cases from akasa are available from £50-80 roughly also.

Are you sure about that???
The OP pic has 'Fanless Tech' quote under it and further investigation of the photos suggest this is indeed correct and the device is passive!!

**EDIT**
Looking at the spec sheet it suggests that the CPU itself has a active fan that is temp controlled, the case itself though looks to be fan-less.
All said I think it's safe to say this nice little rig is extremely quite, if not then it would be easy to volt mod or upgrade the CPU fan to achieve almost silence :-)


A couple of reviews:

http://geeklingo.net/intel-nuc-dn2820fykh-kit-xbmc-media-centre/

The former tried running it with the fan off and it was OK, but environmental conditions matter, ie maybe not on a hot day.

If I could be sure Linux would run well on this I'd go for it, but it looks like the Bluetooth is not well-supported.

Seems cheap until you realise it's barebones (not stated)

Add £80-100 for the needed RAM and HDD
In case others were subscribed to this thread like me check this deal out

Kikatek for £98.78

Sorry if that seems like self promotion, but there's only 29 in stock and I think they'll go fast so just giving the heads up

In case anyone is interested.. Phoronix just recently did a review with some introductory benchmarks here:

I don't think I would recommend a NUC for most people; with just a single SO-DIMM slot, just mSATA port for a drive, and the cheaper ones being quite a lowly CPU, you have to be really wedded to the need for a tiny computer. As soon as you start getting into the core-i3/5 versions the prices rise where there are quite a few net-tops which are competitive on price and performance whilst offering a better variety of memory and drive options.

It's a shame there's no dual-NIC version of the NUC, it would be a very nice embedded firewall "appliance".

What net tops would you recommend then?

I see that Asus have a chromebox coming out. $179 for Celeron 2955U with Wireless, BT 4.0, 16Gb MSata drive, 2Gb memory, SD card slot, 4 USB 3.0 ports and ChromeOS included does make the NUC seem more expensive to spec up to the same levels :(

Hi guys reading alot about the acer revo so where is the best place too get one from?
better and cheaper huh ..its a complicated world

wouldnt compare it to the popcorn hour models as they can handle HD audio..
new model is out now as well http://www.digitalera.co.uk/products/Popcorn_Hour_A_200_Network_Media_Player-1308-0.html the A200 (dont confuse with C200) as for Xtreamer, its good but VERY VERY VERY buggy and the support from the company is shocking.
Want good support and YAMJ? look at playon hd or Mede8er.........
raybog;6840247
So will this play 1080p .mkv files without any problems via HDMI?

I'm not too bothered about wi-fi tbh,

Might get one if it does.


get WDTV much better support and GUI is leagues better
i want the xstreamer fitted with cooler so sod it for the price of the dongle i might as well hook another home plug in it as i have a homeplug network
will this work if i only have wireless b/g
