Has anyone had any experience with the Intel NUC for radio applications?

I typically continuously run an AirNav RadarBox, a couple instances of PRO96Com, an SDRPLay and a couple ARC products for logging and control.

It is replacing a 11 year old HP with an i7 920 and 9 GB RAM that has been patched up a bit (new PS a few years ago, replaced the CPU fan etc.) that takes up too much room.

NUC

Don't run a NUC but I have a little ZOTAC 2957u Celeron 2gb ram w/32gb SSD Win 10 up in attic 24/7 running
FlightAware Pro Stick Plus ADS-B w/Built-in Filter. Also run a RTL-SDR dongle w/SDRSHARP on it.

I remote into it w/Teamviewer and have not touched it in a year. Most NUC boxes have a much hotter setup so
there probable great for a radio pc box. Been looking at building a NUC7i5BN NUC for the shack, the smaller
form factor will free up a lot of space and should run a lot more quite then the giant PC with all the fans.
