    NUC6i7KYK random freezes and reboots




      I have experienced random freezes and reboots with my NUC since new.  For example, over the last two weeks it has frozen or rebooted unexpectedly 8 times.  It does not appear to be related to workload.  Although it has happened while gaming, it appears to happen just as frequently during low activity periods (e.g. while editing a document or while the computer is sitting idle).  I've tried a number of troubleshooting steps suggested on this forum:


      * Ran Memtest86 overnight (passed)

      * Ran the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool (passed)

      * The CPU temperature shown in the Diagnostic Tool is 40-50 degrees below max during normal use

      * Confirmed that the SSD has the latest firmware (EMT21B6Q)

      * Updated to BIOS 0042 -- I have not touched the BIOS settings

      * Updated drivers


      I don't have other SODIMMs or SSDs to test with.  Is it time to arrange for warranty service?

      * Samsung 850 EVO 250GB M.2 SSD

      * Intel Management Engine Consumer Driver
