System fan warranty considerations Chassis manufacturers may design enclosures for Intel® NUC Board SKUs that include passive cooling solutions. To accommodate these types of custom chassis, you can remove the factory-installed fan from the board SKUs without violation of the Product Warranty.

Intel accepts returns for board SKUs where the factory-installed fan has been removed; however, subsequent returns may be refused if customer-induced damage due to fan removal or overheating is found.

As the original design is intended to operate with the factory-installed fan, it's expected that customers removing the fans are responsible for ensuring sufficient cooling of the modified system. Intel communicates any concerns to the customer before refusal of subsequent returns.

Before you return defective products Make sure you know your Windows OS Activation number (if applicable). Remove and keep any user-installed components before returning an Intel NUC product to customer support. These components can include the following:

Intel is not able to track or return user-installed components or items that are included in the box if you send those into our Warranty Center.

Intel® NUC Kits sent as warranty replacements do not include a Microsoft Windows* license sticker. If your Intel NUC has a license sticker, we recommend you save the sticker by carefully peeling it off the chassis, or by taking a photo of it for future reference before returning it to Intel for a warranty replacement. Microsoft Windows stickers are not available as fulfillment items.
