I didnt think you could get that hot without melting something, this is the temperature that speccy gives immediately after starting the computer. Is this a clock malfunction or something more serious? I just got this NUC and it is under warranty, please help me out here. Thanks!
hope that cooling fan is spinning!
I would think if you just started it up after it's been sitting around in the "off" position, shouldn't get that hot when started unless you're streaming some videos right off the bat.
Are you sure it's 123 celsius? that's 253 degrees F
Im not running anything this is on startup. Look at the pic, it says celsius. It has to be a malfunction because the hard drive shows 32c
More than likely the sensor is just playing up or not recognized properly, as the CPU would shut down before reaching that kind of temp (and you'd certainly be able to feel it, and hear the fan going crazy). My advice is to install Open Hardware Monitor and compare results:
Hello Choppertom, thanks for joining the Intel Community.
According to our web site, the temperature value handled is the TCase of the processor that comes into this NUC, the i5-4250U http://ark.intel.com/products/75028/Intel-Core-i5-4250U-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-2_60-GHz, is 100°C degrees.
The temperature value handled is the TCase value; this is a number established by Intel® as a point of reference in order to understand what could be expected as per normal processor temperature.
If the processor temperature reaches 120 degrees or more it will send a signal to the motherboard to shut down to prevent mayor damages and most likely it will not be possible to turn the computer back in until it cools down.
In your case, please let me know the following:
- Is the system shutting down at any time?
- Are you getting blue screens?
- Are you able to notice if the fan is spinning faster than normal?
No, it shows no signs of overheating. But both speccy and open hardware list one of the cores at 123 celsius, there must be something off with the bios or clocking.
As OHM reports, that's not the temp of either of the CPU cores, it's just a temp sensor on the board that the OS can't read properly ( a sure sign of this is that it hasn't changed min/max at all). I have the same on one of the new Broadwell NUCs, except mine is stuck at 65C. I wouldn't worry about it. Remember you can also view the temps (from all sensors) in Visual BIOS to check.
thats what i figured, thanks. Love the nuc otherwise, very quiet. Usb is a little shaky, Im hoping a new powered 2 hub will work because my powered usb3 hub malfunctions.
