Intel® NUC Kit DC53427HYE and Intel® NUC Board D53427RKE In this configuration, the two displays that you connect to the mini DisplayPort ports must be native DisplayPort-capable. Adapters that change DisplayPort to HDMI or DVI do not work. It is also best that the first display be HDMI without any adapters.
