[Insert Log] NUC "Build"

image.png.01bcc2dda8431d98e5e71cbbcc28227c.png

 

Intel NUC

Intel Core i7 7567U Kaby Lake

32GB 2x 16GB Curical Ballistix SODIMM DDR4 2400

Intel Iris Plus 650 iGPU

500GB Samsung 960 Evo M.2 NVMe Drive

16GB Intel Optane M.2 2280 16GB PCIe NVMe

250GB Samsung 840 Evo SSD Crucial MX300 525GB SSD

 

So, the NUCs are  mini barebones PCs which you likely know already. Building them is just a matter of inserting a hard drive/SSD/M.2 and some RAM.

 

This build has a couple of purposes. I always attach a PC to a TV as opposed to something like a fire stick or Apple TV. It's just more versatile in my opinion. The second purpose was to build a PC that I could directly install Linux onto. I run Linux in a metric ton of VMs, but it's nice to have it on hardware that interfaces with it directly aside from my laptop. Everything else is either Windows or a Hypervisor. I'm messing around w/ the Optane module for now since it was free, but I will more than likely sell it.

Seems pretty cool so far. But why install linux, when you have hardware that is more than capable of running windows?

I'm running Linux because everything I'm going to run on top of it runs better on Linux, and mainly because I'm very comfortable with Linux & have plenty of Windows PCs.

Awesome! Do you have any other pictures of your progress? This is a project that is quite interesting.

It's in its final form now! Ditched the Optante drive for a few bucks. 32GB of DDR4 2400 + 500GB 960 Evo. Can't really talk about its use case on here, but it works extremely well.
