The single best solution I found to cope with the noise is to turn off the TurboBoost in BIOS. For example I have a python script that does some data analysis. Without turbo boost it ran for around 19 minutes at 50 degrees package temperature with little noise (ambient temperature was 23 C). With turbo boost on, it took only 11 minutes, but at the cost of hitting 90 degrees with a really loud fan. Also keep in mind that if you want to analyze performance of your code, you will need to turn of the TurboBoost anyway for reproducible results.
One also might look for Akasa to release their cases for the new 28W nuc's to see if they offer better cooling.
Now about linux compatibility, in my case that's OpenSUSE. As usual for nucs (and all other PCs I had), the microphone from the 3.5mm jack is noisy. This can be solved by using USB microphone/headset, I personally use Logitech H800 (+it is wireless). What is new for me, is that the wi-fi card does not show on the first boot after the nuc was powered off. I have to restart it to show up, don't know yet what is the problem.
One final note. If you want to use hardware encryption for an NVMe drive, I don't think the BIOS supports it yet. But there are software solutions, like LUKS in Linux.
One problem with these NUCs is the lack of a dust filter. Depending on how dusty your environment is, you will need to clean out the accumulated dust from the fan assembly. If you don't, temperatures will rise and you may experience throttling or even damage to the components. Cleaning entails nearly complete disassembly of the NUC to get to the fan's intake cooling fins. There are instructions on how to do this on a couple blogs and forums.
I've only had mine for a few weeks as of this writing and it is running fast, cool and quiet. I may not need to clean it for a long time since I placed a thin piece of cloth over the air intake to keep most of the dust out.
First things first: this is a great piece of hardware. I have owned several mini-PCs including GIgabyte's last generation and an Atom-based Asus. I've built dozens of PCs over the years.
I use this NUC as a media center (HTPC) and so far it is *completely* silent and emits no discernible heat. Considering that my Gigabyte would occasionally sound like a hair dryer and my fanless Atom ran hot, I am very happy with this. I'm not gaming on this unit but for casual use I am very pleased with the thermal profile.
On the other hand.
The out-of-box experience on this kit is the absolute worst I have ever seen, anywhere. The instructions/documentation is essentially non-existent. The assembly instructions omit many important details, e.g. the direction that components are inserted, etc.
And the "support" on Intel's website it literally non-existent. I had to jump through many hoops to get drivers for this thing, since the support pages are only for the non-kit versions and Intel doesn't make an effort to clarify any of this. It wasn't even easy to find a BIOS manual or get into the BIOS configuration. I think most anyone with less experience building PCs would have given up.
In short, Intel's hardware team is doing great work with this model. But their support, driver and documentation team are letting the side down.
