Device Description

The Intel Next Unit of Computing DC53427 is a small form-factor PC desktop, powered by a third-generation Intel Core i5-3427U processor (formerly "Ivy Bridge").

The DC53427 NUC is notable for featuring two mini-DisplayPort 1.1 ports, alongside two HDMI ports. Only three displays can be active at one time.

This NUC features one half-length mSATA slot and one full-length mini-PCIe slot.

Support Status

  • NUC DC53427 - Green (Console OS works well on this device)

We fully support the Intel NUC DC53427 with Console OS Developer Release 1. Audio output may have problems, particularly over HDMI. This is a known issue.

You must be running either an Intel 3160 or Intel 7260 family Wi-Fi/Bluetooth card. We expect to add support for additional Wi-Fi and Bluetooth chipsets in future releases.

We have not fully tested the mini-DisplayPort on this model. While display mirroring will work, we do not support using three displays simultaneously on this model.

We do not support using Console OS with a USB 2.0 hard disk, though it may work if you have a fast one. The only official way we support booting Console OS on this NUC is through the mSATA drive.

Installation Instructions

You must be running the latest BIOS from Intel.com before installing Console OS. We only test and validate Console OS using the latest system BIOS available, and BIOS updates are critical to the performance-tuning of Console OS and the underlying UEFI firmware.
