– The Intel BOXNUC8I3BEH3 has been criticized of bring noisy and here I will not be holding any punches for them. Even while in idle mode, the fans are in motion and can be heard (at least in a quiet room). Give the NUC a small task and the volume goes up to a point of the fans being clearly audible. When the CPU is used to the maximum the fans turn up and become very loud.
– When it comes to cooling, a AIDA64 system diagnostic tool stress test reveals that the NUC is not suitable for using the system to full capacity over a longer period of time.
– If you are looking for a capable computer, with high performance and which is easily customizable the Intel BOXNUC8I3BEH3 is you perfect fit.
