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 ass.
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
