    New NUC7i7BNH - CPU Core Temp Running at 70c While Idle

    secretkarate

      Hello,

       

      I recently purchased a NUC7i7BNH and installed a 250GB Samsung 960 EVO M.2 SSD and 8GB of Crucial RAM.  I flashed the BIOS to BNKBL357.86A.0060.2017.1214.2013 and installed Windows 10 Pro with no problems.  However, the fan was running louder than I'd like.  I went into the BIOS to adjust the Fan Control Mode to "Quiet," but that didn't seem to have any effect.  I even changed it to "Fanless" and still no improvement.  The fan constantly runs at 3,400 RPM according to the BIOS, but I noticed that the CPU Core Temp is running at 70 degrees.  I wouldn't expect the temp to be that high in the BIOS.  Am I mistaken or is there something wrong with this unit?

       

      Thanks in advance for any input.
