    When I’m working, I don’t want to hear anything.
    Not music, not any noise from the fans in my computers.
    Just stillness.

    I want my office to be quiet. The loudest thing in the room - by far - should be the occasional purring of the cat.

    Arrow Cooling Head for Intel® NUC8i5BEK (project diary)

    10.05.2018 - 10.07.2018

    NUC8i5BEK in action, Stresstest (OOTB), stress continues, KODI Live-TV, KODI 100-mbps-hd-hevc.mkv, Relax with Loriot

    The orgone pyramid is only for decoration . The build quality is very good and the setup was an easy task. The NUC8i5BEK is very snappy and quiet with normal load. While Stresstest, the noise is ~42 db(A)..not so bad, but not to ignore. The Temperature while stresstest is ~75 °C, no throttle. Everything runs very smooth

    10.08.2018

    250-mbps-4k-uhd-hevc, 4K HDR Youtube, under the lid w/o fan, with Alpine AM4, fanless stresstest, fanless cooldown

    The Arctic Alpine AM4 performed as expected...out of the box but I don't like the high RAM and MB Temperatures despite the open test-construction. The massive AM4 bottom and the low distance to the MB, take its toll..so, Plan B must be checked

    10.09.2018 - 10.11.2018

    'Alpine NUC'@Twitter, Intel Extreme Utility, Benchmarking, first Macho 90 impression, 'The Champ' in action, Stresstest (CPU, FPU, Cache, RAM)

    See 'Benchmarking' with the Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility...1224 Marks with the i5 (with a youtube Video and other tasks in the background) vs 1276 Marks with the i7 in this review . Maybe, I misinterpreted the temperature values for the AM4. 'The Champ' just did only a little better. A more realistic Sresstest (CPU, FPU and GPU only), Handbrake Encoding Job and other tasks with 'The Champ' and the AM4 will follow.

    10.11.2018 - 10.14.2018

    'The Champ'@Twitter, Macho CPU-FPU-GPU, OOTB CPU-FPU-GPU, Cinebench R15,

    I think i have to accept, that in fanless mode the temperatures of the MB and RAM under full load, are about 10°C higher than with the fan...and when the case is closed, it gets even worse ...but no temperature difference for the CPU between 'The Champ' and with fan/stock NUC8i5 . Take a look at the fantastic Cinebench results...the NUC8i5 is a little infernal machine

    Very interesting post and finally some images from the new Bean Canyon's inside. Thank you very much for that. Do you by chance have some images of the cooling from beginning to end of the disassembly? I am wondering, how big the stock blower is (width and thickness) to estimate noise (and I just want to see it out of pure curiosity, too). And how is the stock thermal paste with this generation of NUCs - does it seem like the usual mess off too much of very cheap stuff or did Intel get better with that?

    I do not plan to turn this into a silent system in the beginning (although I might at some point), but I am very concerned about the noise, too. I already expect, that I will have to change the thermal paste to something more capable.

    Oh, and since you did not post frequency numbers - on what frequency on all cores did it run?

    Thanks in advance! I'm very curious to see, where your project will go.

    Hi,
    thank you for the feedback. Here is a Review of the NUC8i7BEH via Google Translate with very good images to answer your questions. I just installed the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility to read the frequency numbers...image will follow.
    Stay tuned, to see the progress of this project...I eagerly wait for the Thermalright Macho 90 and I hope (I am sure) the temperatures for the MB and RAM will be much lower as with the Arctic Alpine AM4.

    cu,

    Thank you very much for the swift answer. The linked review was a great read and it in deed gave me detailed pictures of the cooling (and every other component). One thing missing was the thermal paste. What was your impression of the amount and quality used on your NUC?

    ..sorry, I dont know. I did not remove the heatpipes with the copper plate but the AM4 had a good contact with the flat heatpipes and was very hot while stresstest.

    Interesting concept. What is your power consumption idle/load with the nuc8i5? I am asking because i want to use mine 24/7.

    Awesome! Thanks for the measurements. That sounds promising. Now I just have to wait for available units.

    ok, in Germany the NUC8i3BEH and the NUC8i5BEK is availiable. Maybe the i3 is also an option for you...i think the i3 has similar power to the i5.
