What about if you test your NUC with another monitor?
Or if possible use another vendor for the minihdmi or minidisplayport into thunderbolt cable?
Themihai, there are going to be firmware and BIOS differences between the NUC and Apple products. The components designed for Apple* systems might give compatibility issues since these devices were made to support MAC OS.
I would recommend you to check with them if this monitor is compatible or if it is able to be use with a NUC. Remember that Apple has a compatible products list.
I've got the LG monitor and it works fine so I guess iMac doesn't work as a monitor for a PC and that's that. The only issue is that it works only with one slot of RAM (8GB) . When I add the 2nd one it keeps rebooting. Is there any fix for this?
The other issue is that I can't get into bios but that may worth a different thread. I've tried to update it pressing F7 key (logitech keyboard with usb) as per guidelines but it does nothing, neither F2.

You RAM seems to run at 1.5V.
NUC only officially support 1.35V RAM.
If you can reach the BIOS you can manually select it to run your RAM in 1.5V.
Could be that 1.5V cannot be runned with two slots...
Hello Themihai, the list of compatible memory for NUC could be found at the following URL:
The information given by Apachez is correct.
I've replaced the memories with 1.35v as you suggested and both of them work.
I’m glad to know that both memories are working now.
I bought the Nuc model with the thunderbolt port exactly for this reason to avoid buying another monitor.
That's a Mini DisplayPort, not a Thunderbolt port. Thunderbolt is an additional layer on the same wiring, which Apple now implements on its hardware. (At first, the exact same port just supported DisplayPort even on Apple hardware.)
Thunderbolt, developed under the name Light Peak, is a hardware interfacethat allows the connection of external peripherals to a computer. It uses the same connector as Mini DisplayPort (MDP). It was released in its finished state on February 24, 2011.
If one reads Intel's PDF manual for the D54250WYK, it makes no mention of Thunderbolt. The port is described as a Mini DisplayPort.
If one instead googles D54250WYK Thunderbolt, one gets an amazing number of hits from reliable sources (leading review sites) describing this port as a Thunderbolt port. I can only surmise that they did so on visual identification alone, based on a familiarity with current Apple devices.
The anomaly here is the $350 price tag of the Intel NUC, and the fact that nearly all affordable Thunderbolt accessories come with one not two Thunderbolt ports. Those engineers are trying to keep prices down, because each Thunderbolt port is expensive.
So a true Thunderbolt port on a $350 NUC? It would be nice, but it sounds like a future dream to me.
