I've read some past forum posts about this and was wondering if anyone has any other advice. My NUC6i7KYK reboots randomly, sometimes just a few minutes after booting. Other times it is rock stable and never crashes. I have used this machine for months without this problem happening at all, and suddenly it's happening about every day. The strange thing is, it reboots when I'm doing pretty low load tasks like browsing web pages. I was playing Cities skylines at 4K, the machine was blazing hot and fans spinning super fast and it was stable. So it doesn't seem like a heat or load issue.
Specs are: 32gb Patriot 2133 CL14 (2x16gb sodimms), Samsung 950 PRO M.2, steelseries keyboard and mouse plugged into a Startech USB hub which is plugged into the NUC. Using WiFi but no BT at time of reboots. I have an eGPU but started experiencing this issue before I had it. The eGPU was not on at the time of the reboot. Nothing in the NUC is overclocked.
There are no blue screens, nothing in my error logs. When the NUC reboots it goes to an unsuccessful POST message.
This seems to have started since the Creators update of Win 10 but not sure if that's just a coincidence.
To date, my troubleshooting steps have been: update to latest BIOS, reset BIOS to defaults, remove and reseat RAM, try different RAM, reformatted and reinstalled Windows. Nothing has helped.
EDIT: Additionally, I had 2 strange occurrences during reboots. Once after the unsuccessful POST message, it booted to what appeared to be a Windows recovery screen but it was just a blank blue background. The very strange this is that when I typed anything on my keyboard, the screen would flicker. Another time after the unsuccessful POST, it rebooted to a recovery screen asking for my BitLocker key. I put it in but then it said my Windows installation was damaged and it couldn't boot. I just power cycled the NUC and it booted fine.
Is exchanging the NUC the only thing I can do at this point? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
