after my NUC6i7 now the NUC8i7 fans start rattling. It is a pity that Intel has chosen low-quality fans where the bearings fail after 2-3 years. Where can I buy replacement fans in Germany or EU? I can find them in China or US but nowhere in the EU. Can I order them from Intel?
Thanks for any pointer where to get them...
josefschroettle, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.
In reference to your question, "Can I order them from Intel?", yes you can, a replacement of the unit might be an option too. So, what we recommend to do next, will be to get in contact directly with your local Intel® Support department for further assistance on this matter, it all depends on the parts availability on their side, their warranty options, and warranty status of your Intel® NUC, but still, by contacting them they will let you know and explain what are the best possibilities for this scenario:
