    bios update 0368 for NUC 5i5RYH random reboot



      I own a NUC KIT NUC5i5RYH  with Windows10 pro OS, 16GB RAM and SSD. all drivers up to date ( i  glance at https://downloadcenter.intel.com/search?keyword=NUC+KIT+NUC5i5RYH at least once a month  to look for updates).

      obviously , i downloaded (and installed) bios 0368 to mitigate "meltdown and spectre" a couple of week ago in conjunction with windows update. i have verified with the "Get-SpeculationControlSettings" of microsoft powershell utility that all went well


      I noted few sudden random "shutdown and restart" with

      "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

      found inside windows event viewer


      it never happened before this bios update (i have been using this NUC for 2 years)


      i also have noted a performance reduction of about 5-10 %(especially on my SSD I/O operation. the OS is on SSD) , but i think this is "normal" in this situation
