With some Tweaks, This is NOW a Good Buy

I build NUCs a lot, 5th gen NUCs. I've been waiting for the dust to settle on this 6th Gen model and finally pulled the trigger to make a small office server. So far so good, but not with out a couple of "tweaks". Here's my build and after are the tweaks I had to perform to make it run right:

RAM: x2 4GB DDR4 2133 @ 1.2 V
SSD: Samsung 850 Evo M.2 500 GB
HDD: Western Digital RED WD10JFCX
EXHD: Western Digital My Passport Ultra 2 TB
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit
NUC LID Additional Dual USB 2.0 Ports from Micro Sata Cables on Amazon

Bios: Loaded Bios 44 out of the box before I isntalled the OS, Disable Failsafe Watchdog in BIOS under “Boot Configuration”
Windows 10: Disable Fast Boot in Windows 10 Power Options

With out those tweaks the NUC would randomly restart and give me a BIOS “Cant read settings” sort of error (can’t remember the exact wording). After making the above changes the server has been running for 30 days straight. Also, I saw no noticeable difference in the boot time after Disabling Fast Boot in Windows either. I’ll update this review if anything changes. - Customer Reviews: Intel NUC Kit NUC6i5SYH- Mini PC
