Hello omnium_peter,

 

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel ® communities.

 

 

I can see that you are looking to build a fan-less cooling solution for the Intel ® NUC.

 

 

First, I would like to begin by mentioning that the inside parts of the Intel ® NUC must not be removed or tampered due to possibility of physical damage caused, so, it is not recommended to remove the parts. However, if you still want information and help in the developing of the fan-less cooling solution you can try accessing the website in the link below:

To answer your question, we do not sell that specific part as a spare part for the Intel ® NUC, the available spare parts that we provide can be found in the link below:

I would love to have it fanless since the fan is annoying.

I'm just thinking about giving back my NUC. What Intel has built there is almost only to be called "junk".

The NUC8i5 is very quiet / inaudible when not under full load and such a fanless mod is only something for lovers of absolute silence. Most users won't hear the NUC and I think Intel has done a very good job.

I can compare the NUC8i5BEH here directly with other devices.

 

I have two Dell notebooks standing here (also with a U-processor)

 

and a ZOTAC-ZBOX MI (older model) with an i5-7400T. These devices are more silent. To make the fan of the NUC audible you don't need a full load.

When I fix the fan at full speed (I made this just of interest to hear how loud the NUC can get), it sounds almost like my Dyson vacuum cleaner.
