    NUC6i7KYK vs. NUC7i7BNH - NOISE factor for HTPC use


      Hello my friends,

      I have an old intel nuc - NUC5I7RYH.

      I decided I want to buy a new one. At first thought to buy - NUC6i7KYK (skull canyon)

      However, while reading about this model in this forum I found many said it is noisy even in idle.

      So, I looked around and found the next model - NUC7i7BNH.

      I am going to install on it:


      Crucial 32GB DDR4 2133 MHz SO-DIMM Memory Kit (2 x 16GB)


      Samsung 512GB 960 PRO M.2 Internal SSD


      The main use is for HTPC - streaming and watching videos, web and perhaps in the future as a home pc with a little graphic usage - editing video.

      But, the main use will be for watching and streaming video content from web.


      what do you think would be the best model and the quieter model.

      I don't want to be stucked with a model which will make noise and ruin the fun of watchin movies in my living room.

      Is anyone tried them both and can tell me how noisy they are?


      TNX ahead,
