The Intel NUC6i5syk is a miniature barebones NUC Kit that comes with a variety of features and hardware to provide the user with the option of setting up their own custom Windows or Linux based system. The Intel NUC6i5syk is packed with a number of features useful for a buyer looking to build a custom set-up. Intel Visual BIOS is an easy-to-use visual interface that offers users control over different BIOS settings like Fan speed control, overclocking settings, adjusting boot-order, and more. The small size of the system makes the Intel NUC6i5syk easily portable, and easy to place in different office of living space situations.
What is the performance ?
The 5th generational SkyLake architecture of the Intel i5-6260U dual-Core and the accompanying Intel 540 integrated graphics offer users a good dose of performance for HD video, casual gaming and web browsing without too much tax on the system. The Intel NUC6i5syk is made for use as a home theatre system in mind—so the hardware reflects this, as well as the inclusion of a front-panel infrared sensor, which opens up channels of communication to different devices and remotes in a home-theatre setup.
Is it easy to set-up ?
While Intel does provide a motherboard, processor, and Intel onboard graphics—everything else is do-it-yourself with a barebones system like this. This means you will have to shell out for HDD storage, RAM, an operating system , and software—make sure you have already, or are prepared to do some research on the right components you need, and will work for you. Also keep in mind, the motherboard supports only DDR4 memory, which can be hard to come across—especially at the lower price range.
Conclusion: Should I buy it ?
The Intel NUC6i5syk is representative of the trend away from the classic heavy-set computer chassis packed with pre-loaded components. If you are someone that desires to build a computer with your own choice of components, with only barebones architecture, but also want something discreet and quiet—then the Intel NUC6i5syk is a high build-quality aluminum model that fits this frame. However, the components it does come with by standard make it a best fit for a general work or home theatre system—nothing too hardware-intensive. If you want to avoid the process of researching and picking out the additional hardware and software required to complete the system, or have a tight budget—then perhaps the Intel NUC6i5syk is not for you.
