I have written about this, but Intel doesn't seem to grasp the severity of this issue. See: NUC6i5SYH erratic fan behavior
"Glad" to see (not really) that I'm not the only one and this is indeed an issue with the firmware. Try downgrading to 0028 (via jumper on mainboard). While with 0033 I had two times no fan movement and one time fan fixed at max speed in about two days of running, I haven't had a single issue since the downgrade (now several days).
Okay, so I think this is most certainly a BIOS/FW issue. They need to act on this quickly.
Intel if you are listening, sort this out as a priority or you'll end up with heat damaged NUC's being sent back!
I am relieved to see some reference to this problem. My NUC5I7RYH is running frightfully hot; the cores are near 80 degrees Celsius when performing just normal desktop tasks. The "high performance" power plan is out of the question, but even in "balanced" mode the cores a showing such high temperatures. Am using HW Monitor and assume it is reporting correctly. In "power saving" mode the core temps range above 60. Has there been any progress on this issue since your January posting?
