I actually own this

Feels faster than my newish high spec MacBook Pro. Had it built and running in under 5 mins. Happy with it so far. Managed 40fps on BF3 at default settings.

Runs pretty hot compared to other NUCs, make sure you ventilate.

Thanks to Newegg for delivering same day... Very impressed!

I want to love it

The obvious pros are form factor and performance, this thing is smaller than my router and performs better than my old ATX system

Random reboots on a daily basis, a few times a day with no particular task causing it. Not a typical BSOD where you actually get a blue screen, just shuts down and reboots itself with event log error 'Kernel-Power'. Seems this is a common issue on the Intel forums. Not specific to Windows either as I have it happen regularly on two OSes (dual booting from two separate drives, one nvme based, the other sata).

It's an amazing little machine but I'm kind of wishing I had just built a mini-itx system at this point, I'm on my second one now after the first one had the screw hole pegs on the bottom of the machine broken off. A lot of money for a lot of problems.
