Thank you for your feedback on this matter.
I am currently researching on this issue. As soon as I can, I will send you a message with my findings.
This is the link for one of the NUC6i5SYH, it does not provide options additional options for power and reset.
At this stage, I do not have notifications that this will no be preset on future NUC models.
Thank you for looking into this. Prior to posting this question I had also concluded that these headers had been removed from the spec, which is why I was asking specifically about an alternative. There are additional headers such as the CEC and Aux Power headers. Would someone at Intel (or the community) be familiar enough with this board to indicate whether either of these headers could be used to manage power and reset functions on the board?
I don't understand your response as far as whether the front panel headers will be included in future models. Will you please clarify what you mean?
Thank you for the help!
On the SY NUCs, the front panel header's location was moved to the processor side of the board (you will have to remove the board from the chassis to see it). Since I am looking at a preproduction unit, I cannot tell whether the header was actually populated. If it is, great, you are set to go. If it is not, boo, but all is not lost; the pads for mounting this header will still be present and you can (at least) solder to them.
Hope this helps,
Thank you, Scott. Any guesses as to whether Intel would warranty these boards if I were to solder anything to them?
Let's not jump the gun. Have you actually removed the board from the chassis and verified that the header is not populated (i.e. only the solder pads are there)?
I will answer your question regardless. If the header is not populated and you solder to the pads, you will definitely be voiding your warranty. Thus I hope they did populate it on the production units...
Customizing the NUC that way definitely voids the warranty.
