Answering in order,
- Yes, you can set it up with different size and type (NVMe vs. SATA) M.2 SSDs.
- The M.2 connector closest to the center of the unit is the primary connector, but you can simply change the Boot Order to boot from a M.2 SSD installed in the secondary connector.
- The list of tested memory is documented separately for each NUC model. Start here: Intel® Boards and Kits, select you NUC model and then select Compatibility. You should see an option to display the tested memory information.
- Not sure what you are talking about. What firmware/driver? What issue?
Hope this helps,
I was thinking of 32GB RAM, and your chart does not list many example of 32GB tests
Can I assume that if 8x2 works for Kingston that 16 x 2 would work also?
BTW: does 2400 work as well as 2133?
As to the firmware, many people are having problems with their BIOS and drivers!
Yes, 16x2 should work as well, though I haven't actually tried this myself. I have seen some reports of issues posted here that involved HyperX memory, but this may be anecdotal and not necessarily an issue with the memory. I use Crucial memory more often than Kingston and have never seen an issue with Crucial (just saying).
Yes, you can use 2400 memory, but remember that (a) you are overclocking your processor's memory controllers when you do so and (b) I have not seen any significant performance benefit from doing so (using 32GB instead of 16GB will provide a more significant benefit).
Hope this helps. Opinions are my own; I no longer work for Intel (I am retired and, as they say, living the good life)...
