Just purchased a Celeron based Intel NUC Kit DN2820FYKH on Thursday to use as a domain, DNS & DHCP server for my home lab (http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showthread.php?t=1135376). I wanted something cheap, small and energy efficient to fit in the limited space available in my rack. Added a Kingston KVR16LS11/4 1.35V 4GB 1600Hz DDR3 SODIMM with a Kingston 60G SSDNow V300 SATA3. Total build came to $272. It only took about 15 minutes to unpack and fit everything. Can't get over how small and quiet these things are and how little power they use. I installed Windows Server 2012 R2 on it pretty easily and the NICs were recognised by the default Windows drivers. I've been able to install all of the Intel drivers except the Intel RST and the bluetooth drivers. None of the other drivers required any hacks. I found the wireless drivers kept causing errors in the event log so I uninstalled the Intel drivers and kept the default Microsoft ones. I haven't installed the Wireless LAN Services feature in Server 2012 so I can't comment on how it performs. Being an Intel product I was quite surprised that the wired NIC uses a Realtek chip according to Windows drivers. I've found the SSD access is a little slow, and I'm not sure whether this is because I don't have the Intel RST drivers installed. CrystalDiskMark only shows around 250MB/s sequential read and writes. The server does reboot very quickly (under 30 seconds), except when I did the initial windows update, where it took around 30 minutes to boot. CPU peaks above 80% a couple of times each day, which isn't an issue for my small lab, and the Disk Clean up tool takes forever to complete. It also boots headless with no issues, and can access it via remote desktop. Only issue with it so far is that being a consumer platform it lacks integrated KVM over IP. I don't have a monitor or keyboard installed in my rack, so it's hard to see what's going on if I can't remote desktop in or access the BIOS. This was an issue on the reboot after the first windows update as I didn't know whether it had crashed or was still installing. Fortunately I was able to leave it for a while and when I came back to it, I could access it via remote desktop. Overall I'm quite impressed with it, although the Celeron is probably just on the limit. Still it's $200 cheaper than an i3 NUC or what I could have built using an ITX form factor. It would be great if there was a NUC with two wired LAN ports as it would make an ideal machine to run a pFSense firewall on.
