I'm looking for an upgarde to brand intel model NUC a NUC 10 th generation in icore 7
a model NUC10i7FNH2
as a Windows 10 pro 64-bit operating system that I would install and activate myself
like RAM
32 giga 1 slot
to then switch to 2 x 32 giga
as ssd disk
I do not really know in any case a 2 tera to do multi boot
so several 3 Windows partitions that I need plus the data
so 2 choices that I saw there may be others?

Questions ?
a) can we go up given the price of the SSD a 2.5 cm ou 20 mm protective radiator above
the type of this one?
is this compatible with a m2 2280 ssd? especially with NUC ??? in height ????
especially in height in a high-format NUC in height
but limit by adding a classic 2.5 inch HDD ???

b) what is the difference between the 2 models NUC10i7FNH and NUC10i7FNH2 at 50 euro difference ???

c) do we have to wait for the release of the 11th generation of NUC ???
when will they be released in 2021?

I addressed portions of these questions in the other conversation that you started (here:, but will summarize it as follows:

  1. You cannot use any M.2 SSD in the NUCs that has an attached heatsink (or radiator). You can use one that has a thin heat spreader, however.
  2. Order code NUC10i7FNH is used to purchase a kit that does not include a power cord. Order code NUC10i7FNH2 is used to purchase a kit that includes a European power cord. See these web pages for more information: and
  3. We cannot here provide you with any information regarding the availability of the 11th gen NUCs. All NUCs are sold through the retail distribution channels. Intel has no control over the rate at which NUCs will flow through these channels. Bottom line, for availability information, you need to contact your local storefront or country-specific distributor(s) for availability information.
