Got My Cirrus7 Rock Server today

I ordered the Cirrus7 Nimbini fanless NUC-server and it arrived today. Runs Rock like a charm. The delivery was fast and the unit was very well packed and included two small bags on gummy bears. :smiley:

I ordered the media version with:
Intel® NUC Comet Lake i7-10710U
1.60 – 4.70GHz HexaCore + Hyperthreading, Intel UHD 620
based on NUC10i7FNH

16GB of Memory and 120GB SSD for the Core.

It should actually stand with the Finns vertically, but I took the pictures while it was on its side before I read the manual that stated that the passive cooling works best if the fins are vertically.

“The massive passive cooling including 5 copper cores also provides better cooling than the air-cooled Intel NUC version.” Here is cool (pun intended) article on the cooling:

Sweet. And, I don’t mean the Gummy Bears.

Tried to order one of those from the US a while ago, but I could not find a way to deal with payment and customs. Ended up with a non-NUC Zbox CI662 nano.

I have noticed the inclusion of Gummi Bears and other similar sweets from European sellers for some reason.

Very nice. Went through the order build process to see what choices were available. I saw that Rock was an option. Can you order it ready to go with Roon, just add subscription and music? To bad it doesn’t ship to the US.

I really like my Cirrus7 and I’ve had it for almost a year now. Not rebooted once (maybe automatically with some ROCK update, but never due to other reasons). Very solid build, cool and stable.

That thing is really cool…literally.

Shame they don’t sell just the case. I’d love one for my NUC10i3.

There is no standard for the backplane of a motherboard. They machine out the ports for the motherboards they ship.

The closest the industry got to a standard on this was the I/O Sheild. Ugh.

@Mike_LC Yes, you can. It took about 10 minutes and I had migrated my core database from a backup and music was playing. :slight_smile:

So they ship with ROCK installed?

Yes, they do. Just email them. I had a quote for case only, but decided not to buy it because the shipping was quite hefty.

Use the cirrus on few weeks now and i am verry happy.
But need to power off every day ?

Why would you need to power it off?

Like the computer,i shut down every day

Ok, I understand. NUC is quite low power appliance (no monitor etc), so it is eating quite a little energy even if it is on all the time. That is why I got the NUC based Cirrus7. I did not want to keep my fully specked iMac on all the time. I also shut down my computers everyday, but I consider the Roon Core to be an low power appliance and just leave it on all the time.

EDIT: DISREGARD THIS - YOU CAN USE THE POWER BUTTON… Make sure you shut it down via the web page, not just the power button. If you just power it down, you might mess up the Roon database.

Think i have the same,

Thanks Kristian
