Noise levels

Intel have not published the noise levels of the i7 NUC so we thought that we would mention them. The i7 NUC is supplied with one small fan that is used to cool the CPU. At idle the fan noise is just about noticeable in a very quiet room. The noise becomes more noticeable as the temperature of the CPU increases. Therefore we recommend either the i3 or i5 NUC if you are looking for the quietest option although if performance is more important then the i7 will fit the bill.
