    Relation between display resolution and fan noise?

    Stefano.Fereri

      Hi,

       

      Cooling/noise seems to be one of the big issues of these nice little NUCs. They are not any more placed under the desk as the old big boxes, but very close to your ears. I've managed to get my NUC7i5BNK quiet by turning the fan down to a default value of 32 cycles. Now I plan to replace my old display (1280x1024) with QHD or 4K display. My fear: Will this cause the fan to work harder if the graphics unit has to do more work, so that noise gets inacceptable again?

       

      Thanks if someone could share his/her experience.

       

      Regards,

      Stefano
