    Intel NUC6i7KYK Shuts Down/Reboots/Freezes


      Purchased my Intel NUC6i7KYK about a month ago and have been having issues with it shutting down/rebooting randomly. This happens a few times a day with an Event Log error related to 'Kernel-Power'. Overheating maybe?


      Update 10/19/2016 - Unit is Dead. Will not power on. This is already my second unit and I'm ultra-careful with my stuff (i.e anti-static strap when installing components, not overtightening screws etc). Memory and SSD's have been tested in gf's laptop and work fine.


      I cannot recommend this NUC as it stands. Doing some googling I've found the freezing and restarts are a common problem with this particular system and if it leads to a dead computer then I'm not sure what a replacement is going to do. I not only invested in this NUC but an additional $500+ for ssd's and memory, not to mention all the returns to figure out the issue. If I had to guess I'd say it's the power supply or motherboard.
