60 views already but no answer? Can someone do a similar test with their NUC and 4k monitor?
Have you tried updating your Intel® NUC5i5RYH drivers manually via the Intel® Download Center
You may try latest Intel® drivers for your NUC at Intel® Download Center
Additionally, if issue persists, Could you please let me know if this noise started when after the system update to Windows* 10?
Could you please add your msinfo32 file ?
Thanks for your message. I have tried installing the drivers directly from Intel to no effect. I have since also done a full wipe and reinstall of the OS on the machine but still to no effect.
I am starting to think that the noise could be coming from the capacitors - but I think this could be a design flaw rather than a faulty unit.
Do you have a similar NUC and have you been able to reproduce this sound? I am tempted to ask Intel for a replacement unit but that would be pointless if it didn't fix the issue. Can't return the unit to Amazon either as I have bought RAM and SSD with this which are just fine (but which wouldn't be easily recycled in a different machine)
One advantage of being an old guy: I played that vid 5 times and couldn't hear a thing.
It's a high pitched noise. If you plug in some headphones to whatever device is playing the video you are bound to hear it. The NUC is about 5 feet from me and I can hear it "compute"
I can't hear it either - but I am old(er) too!
I have certainly seen cases of singing capacitors in the past - and heard them (but I was younger then)
Hi. Usually that's a power related problem.
- Try another power supply (same voltage and equal or higher amps)
- Try another power outlet, and plug it directly to the wall, no power splitters to avoid interference.
If the noise remains, then it's most likely a motherboard problem and it's faulty capacitors, so if possible, return the unit..
