    NUC5i7RYH heat/loud fans - will undervolting solve?

    NUCi7

      I asked this question in another thread but did not get any replies so I figured I would try here.

       

      Does anyone else own a NUC5i7RYH whose fans hit max RPM during even minor computing, like web browsing or even if Windows update is installing something in the background?  6000+ rpm is as loud as a hair dryer and is disappointing considering I do not use this NUC for gaming or any intensive applications.

       

      I have underclocked my CPU (in Windows 10 power management - set max frequency to 80%).  I think this disabled turbo boost as well.  So far there haven't been any fan outbursts, but if this doesn't solve the problem then I may attempt undervolting the CPU to control heat.  Has anyone had to do this or found any success with it?

       

      Thank you!
