When the Intel NUC NUC 5i5RYK at idle we found the noise level to be 38.8d B with the sound meter about six inches above the side of the case.
When gaming we found that the maximum reading to be 45.5d B.
Sure enough we managed to hit 4200 RPM when gaming as the CPU cores hit 82C while the CPU hit 56C.
The fan isn’t annoyingly loud, but it can be heard when the system is stressed for an extended period of time.
With regards to temperature testing we used AIDA64 and found the processor would idle around 35C and under the AIDA64 stress test we hit 81C on the CPU cores and 50C on the CPU. On another occasion we gamed for about half an hour on the NUC and noticed that the fan was much louder than the AIDA64 stress test.
