Quiet PC UltraNUC Pro 6

- Replaces the Quiet PC UltraNUC Pro- Replaced by the Quiet PC UltraNUC Pro 7

This "Pro" version of the UltraNUC is a fully built Ultra-Compact PC based on the 6th Generation Intel NUC. Configured to your specification with memory, SSD and Operating System, just plug in and go!

The Intel® Next Unit of Computing (NUC) is a small PC kit powered by an Intel Core i3 or Core i5 processor. In its 6th Generation form, it provides responsive performance and energy efficiency at the same time. The UltraNUC Pro is a fully-built PC based on the 6th Generation NUC in a tiny package with the main improvements over the standard UltraNUC (5th Generation NUC) include faster CPU performance, better 3D graphics, a SDXC card slot and better built-in WiFi and Bluetooth.


  1. Intel's 6th Gen NUCs configurable to your exact requirements
  2. Thermally-sensitive fan operates only when needed (usually silent)
  3. We build to your specification and deliver within 7 days
  4. Clean Build™ Promise and original OS+drivers supplied on DVDs
  5. Two year warranty with open-case policy
  6. Ultra-compact motherboard offers many features and miniscule power consumption

Even though the NUC is small in size, it is just as versatile as a full-sized computer whilst being convenient enough to be portable. The HDMI and mini-DisplayPort outputs provide full 4K resolution as well as 7.1 digital audio output, (a capable AV Receiver is required).

You can easily travel with the NUC and simply connect it to an LCD TV at the place you're travelling to - a remote office, hotel room or friend's house. A whole host of capabilities are possible when connected to the internet via broadband. The NUC is the epitome of versatility and portability. Alternatively, you can enjoy an uncluttered desk with the NUC mounted somewhere out of the way - even behind your monitor! (A VESA monitor mounting bracket is provided.)

We offer the UltraNUC Pro in two different versions: a cheaper Core i3 version and a high performance Core i5-based unit. Essentially, the only difference between them is processor speed, because the Core i5 has the ability to Turbo Boost its clock to 2.9 GHz whereas the Core i3 is locked at 2.3 GHz.

Clean Build™ Promise

The price of many pre-built PCs these days is often supported by cash kickbacks from software companies who pay hardware manufacturers to pre-install limited or trial versions of their software and then hope that the customer pays to upgrade to the full version. The downside to this approach is that the new PC comes pre-loaded with a lot of "junkware" which bloats the operating system and can cause severe performance degradation.

Here at Quiet PC we believe that customers have every right to expect the best possible performance from a brand new PC, so every system we build comes with our Clean Build™ promise. We install the operating system (if you order one), motherboard drivers, OS updates and Microsoft Security Essentials / Windows Defender - that's it. You won't be pestered by pop-ups and nag screens and you can get on with using your new PC immediately without having to uninstall lots of junkware first. Your new machine will boot in super-quick time and will stay running quickly for many months and years to come.

Free hardware support and fully inclusive warranty

We offer free hardware technical support for as long as you own the machine. This support covers any hardware query or problem, including advice on maintenance and upgrades. We regret we can't offer software support or training so we would recommend contacting the software vendor in this instance.

Our hardware warranty runs for two years and is "collect and return" meaning that you don't need to worry about getting the machine back to us - we will instruct our courier to collect it from you on a day of your choosing, then after we have checked and repaired it we will send it back to you by express courier at our expense. In addition, unlike many other PC suppliers, we have an "open-case" policy which means you are free to open the machine and perform your own minor modifications or upgrades without worrying that your warranty might be affected.

Customer Reviews

Delivered working perfectly


Nice little thing.

Ran some bench marks against my 4th gen i7 laptop. It murdered it. Also the i7 throttled up to 20% during the tests at 83 degrees, the NUC never broke 69 degrees never needed to throttle.

Reasonably quiet. There is a small drone from it, but it is whisper quiet. The fan never spools up other than for 1 second when you turn it on or when it is just about to turn off.

I got mine without an OS. It is a work machine that I will use from home an we have an enterprise license for Windows 10. So saved about £90. However, you end up in a chicken and egg situation. You put on Windows and then can't connect to the internet. Your network card has no drivers. And you can't get those drivers, because they live on the internet. You need to download your drivers from

onto a USB drive in order to manually put them on and run them on the NUC. Once you have the network/Wi-Fi drivers, you can do the rest via automatic update.

It might be nice if Quiet PC allowed you to buy a cheap USB with the drivers you need on it as an optional extra for say £5. Would have saved my a trip to work with the NUC to get the driver I needed.

Other than that, great build, no issues, delivered fast, its a nice little product, would do again. I use for web design and mobile app building for my little company.
