I was too early with my conclusion. Although it is a bit less, it is still there!
Please post a recording.
I have added some files.
Recording and 2 screenshots.
Here are settings for you to try:
These settings should cause the fan to be turned off if the Processor and Memory temperatures are below 48c. If the temperatures go above this threshold, the fan will be turned on at 20%. From there, as temperatures rise, the fan will be sped up accordingly for Memory temperatures above 53c and processor temperatures above 63c. The fan will run at full speed for any processor temperature above 83 and any memory temperature above 73.
Hope this helps,
I have downloaded the Intel Processor Diagnostics Tool and it fails.
It says that i have to check my thermal solution. Should i replace the Thermal paste with some ARctic Silver?
I have put the Results file in the first post.
Oh and your settings did not help.
Oh and i forgot to mention that i have two NUC7i7BNH models (different memory) but both machines are having the same issues.
I really think this is a cooling problem.
My thought is that the uC in the SIO is not receiving or is not running the fan speed control equation being specified in the BIOS.
What you need to do is:
1. install (or reinstall, as the case may be) the latest BIOS using the Recovery Method.
2. During subsequent POST, use F2 to go into BIOS Setup.
3. Press F9 (followed by Y) to reset BIOS Configuration.
4. Press F10 (followed by Y) to save configuration and exit BIOS Setup.
5.During subsequent POST, use F2 to again enter BIOS Setup.
6. Make any changes you absolutely need in BIOS Setup (Boot Order, SATA Mode, etc.).
7. Reapply the fan speed control configuration I supplied above.
8. Press F10 (followed by Y) to save configuration and exit BIOS Setup.
During Windows operation, run a tool that will collect temperature and fan control data so you can see if the SIO is reacting properly.
Hope this helps,
I have done the recovery bios and did not alter anything.
It did not help much. A bit but i have reinstalled my computer so not many process run. Having Chrome open with several tabs causes the fan to blow!
Forget the blower for the moment; let's look at actual temperatures. Run something like AIDA64 and watch what they do (it can be run for free in trial period).
Let me say this. a couple of days ago i came home and the NUC was at a dos screen telling me that it was restarted because it was to hot.
I always leave my computer on and i goes to sleep automatically.
I just bought a drone and i cannot edit a movie without it getting to hot!
Ok, you need to be looking closely at the fan speed control configuration. This is controlled from within the BIOS. I rather doubt that any of the (horrible) built-in configurations that they provide will suffice; you will need to create a custom one.
You probably need to take the configuration out of Max Performance mode as well. This is done within both BIOS Setup and the Windows configuration.
Hope this helps,
I think i found a solution.
Changed thermal paste. This did not solve the fan noise but it is 15c cooler now.
What did help was changing the sensor from processor to PCH.
Look good to me.
