Taking advantage of the same topic of the subject on RAM, I would like to know which of the two memory models below is best for my use NUC as mediacenter; NUC7i7BNH ...
And if both are compatible with the model:
A - Crucial 32GB Kit (16GBx2) DDR4 2133 MT/s (PC4-17000) DR x8 SODIMM 260-Pin Memory - CT2K16G4SFD8213

B - Crucial 32GB Kit (16GBx2) DDR4 2400 MT/s (PC4-19200) DR x8 Unbuffered SODIMM 260-Pin Memory - CT2K16G4SFD824A
My question about compatibility is in terms that differentiate both:
A / B
DDR4 2133 / DDR4 2400
PC4-17000 / PC4 19200
SODIMM / Unbuffered SODIMM

I have a pair of 16GB CT2K16G4SFD8213 DIMMs, specifically CT16G4SFD8213.C16FAD1, that I use for my NUC testing and have used in almost every DDR4-based NUC. If you specifically get these exact DIMMs, I don't think you will go wrong.
If you install one of these DIMMs (either slot), it should work just fine. Obviously, because you are using only one of the two memory controllers, performance will suffer slightly. If you later install a second DIMM - one exactly matching the first - in the other slot, it should continue to work and should increase performance not only because of having 16GB more memory, but also because both memory controllers will be in use.
Hope this helps,
(I should have included this in my previous response but the NUCs currently containing them were busy at the time)
I also have a pair of 8GB CT2K8G4SFD8213 DIMMs, specifically CT8G4SFD8213.16FA2, that I use for my NUC testing. I have used them without issue, together and separately, in almost all of the DDR4-based NUCs. BTW, by "almost all", I mean that I have not yet tested them in the new DN NUCs; I have used them successfully in SY, KY and BN NUCs.
Hope this (also) helps,
Edit: 8GB CT8G4SFD8213.16FA2 seem to work just fine in DN. 16GB CT16G4SFD8213.C16FAD1 also seem to work just fine in HN/HV NUCs.
Strangely enough I experience issues with CT16G4SFD8213.C16FAD1 on NUC7i7BNH.
When either both memory slots or only the bottom one are occupied the system is very unstable: under Windows 10 there are blue screens of death with "MEMORY MANAGEMENT ERROR" or "CRITICAL PROCESS KILLED" errors, Under Ubuntu 17.10 there are kernel crash dumps.
When only the top memory slot is occupied it works OK.
I have two CT16G4SFD8213.C16FAD1 memory modules bought as a set and I tried both of them in described configurations.
I also tried removing NUC's bottom cover and cooling main board and memory module with an external fan but I still experience the same issues.
You got plenty of good answers already but here's a link to the compability guide that might be useful http://compatibleproducts.intel.com/ProductDetails/ExportPeripheralInfo?moduleName=Intel%C2%AE%20NUC&productType=Kits&pr… http://compatibleproducts.intel.com/ProductDetails/ExportPeripheralInfo?moduleName=Intel%C2%AE%20NUC&productType=Kits&productName=Intel%C2%AE%20NUC%20Kit%20NUC7i3BNH
