Before You Begin

CAUTIONS

The steps in this guide assume you’re familiar with computer terminology and with the safety practices and regulatory compliance required for using and modifying computer equipment.

Disconnect the computer from its power source and from any network before performing any of the steps described in this guide.

 

Failure to disconnect power, telecommunications links, or networks before you open the computer or perform any procedures can result in personal injury or equipment damage. Some circuitry on the board can continue to operate even though the front panel power button is off.

Follow these guidelines before you begin:

  • Always follow the steps in each procedure in the correct
  • Create a log to record information about your computer, such as model, serial numbers, installed options, and configuration
  • Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage Perform the procedures described in this chapter only at an ESD workstation using an antistatic wrist strap and a conductive foam pad. If such a station isn’t available, you can provide some ESD protection by wearing an antistatic wrist strap and attaching it to a metal part of the computer chassis.

 

Installation Precautions

When you install and test the Intel NUC, observe all warnings and cautions in the installation instructions.

To avoid injury, be careful of:

  • Sharp pins on connectors
  • Sharp pins on circuit boards
  • Rough edges and sharp corners on the chassis
  • Hot components (such as SSDs, processors, voltage regulators, and heat sinks)
  • Damage to wires that could cause a short circuit

Observe all warnings and cautions that instruct you to refer computer servicing to qualified technical personnel.

 

Observe Safety and Regulatory Requirements

If you don’t follow these instructions, you increase your safety risk and the possibility of noncompliance with regional laws and regulations.

This guide tells you how to:

  • Install and remove memory
  • Install an 2 SSD
  • Install a VESA mount bracket
  • Connect power
  • Install an operating system
  • Install the latest drivers

 

Open the Chassis

Unscrew the four corner screws on the bottom of the chassis and lift the cover.

Installing and Removing Memory

Intel NUC Kits NUC10i7FNK, NUC10i5FNK and NUC10i3FNK have two 260-pin DDR4 SO-DIMM sockets. Memory requirements:

  • 2V low voltage memory
  • 2666 MHz SO-DIMMs
  • Non-ECC

Find compatible memory modules in the Intel Product Compatibility Tool

NOTE: If you plan to install only one memory module, install it in the lower memory socket.

Install SO-DIMMs

If you plan to install just one SO-DIMM, install it in the lower memory socket.

To install the SO-DIMMs, follow these steps:

  • Observe the precautions in “Before You Begin” on page
  • Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the Turn off the computer and disconnect the AC power cord.

  • Align the small notch at the bottom edge of the SO-DIMM with the key in the
  • Insert the bottom edge of the SO-DIMM into the
  • When the SO-DIMM is inserted, push down on the outer edge of the SO-DIMM until the retaining clips snap into Make sure the clips are firmly in place.

Removing SO-DIMMs

To remove a SO-DIMM, follow these steps:

  1. Observe the precautions in “Before You Begin” on page
  2. Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the Turn off the computer.
  3. Remove the AC power cord from the
  4. Remove the computer’s
  5. Gently spread the retaining clips at each end of the SO-DIMM The SO-DIMM pops out of the socket.
  6. Hold the SO-DIMM by the edges, lift it away from the socket, and store it in an anti-static
  7. Reinstall and reconnect any parts you removed or disconnected to reach the SO-DIMM
  8. Replace the computer’s cover and reconnect the AC power

Install an M.2 SSD

Intel NUC Kits NUC10i7FNK, NUC10i5FNK and NUC10i3FNK support 80mm and 42mm SSDs. Find compatible M.2 SSDs at the Intel® Product Compatibility Tool:

NOTE: Before changing the Intel Optane memory module, it needs to be disabled. Follow Removing Intel Optane Memory on this page first, before taking the module out.

If you’re installing an 80mm M.2 SSD:

  1. Remove the small silver screw from the 80mm (A) and 42mm (B) metal standoff on the
  2. Align the small notch at the bottom edge of the 2 card with the key in the connector.
  3. Insert the bottom edge of the 2 card into the connector (C).
  4. Secure the card to the standoff with the small silver screw (D).

If you’re installing a 42mm M.2 SSD:

  1. Remove the small silver screw from the metal standoff on the motherboard (A).
  2. Align the small notch at the bottom edge of the 2 card with the key in the connector.
  3. Insert the bottom edge of the 2 card into the connector (B).
  4. Secure the card to the standoff with the small silver screw (C).
