I've been a NUC user for the last couple of weeks.
I just wanted to inform you how pleased I am with the hardware. (NUC7i7BNH)
I'm currently running it as a headless server with with CentOS7 installed on it.
With a Samsung M.2 SSD 960 EVO 250GB and Kingston HyperX Impact 32GB,
it really kicks ***.
Currently I'm running an online game server on it. (7 Days to die) It's been
running 24/7 for two weeks now. No lags, No issues.
Patched firmware a few days ago due to the Hyperthreading Bug. Other than
that, no downtime.
Tried to convert some video with ffmpeg, and it got a bit hot, around 99°C (210°F),
but that was quite expected. With just the game server, it runs at around 42°C
