I had this Motherboard and it worked great with either DGPU or iGPU and swapping out the wireless card. The one thing I didn't like was you couldn't control the leds on the board except though windows which it would promptly forget about booting into OSx.Thanks, this is super helpful.
I don't want dual monitors to be a major hassle, so I will likely hold off unless I get an awesome deal on a NUC7, or decide to drop down to single monitor.
As I understand it you can only use an adaptor for wifi/bluetooth in a NUC8 if you then use a slower SATA SSD, as opposed to a fast M2 SSD. Which is a tradeoff I did not want to make.
Interesting commentary on the noise as well - I like my machines to be as silent as possible, so it sounds like this may not be the best choice. Out of interest what ITX build are you considering?
