CPU's Going Over 100 Degrees On Brand New Hades Canyon

Jump to solution

Hi All,

I had a Hades Canyon which had an issue with a USB port so has to be returned so i purchased another brand new Hades Canyon to use while my other one is being replaced, on my first Hades Canyon i changed the Cycle % from 1 to 2 in the BIOS and when normal computing the nuc is quiet, only when playing call of duty or video processing do the fans really kick in and the CPU's never go above 90 degrees.

On the brand new nuc i have set the BIOS to the same, but when even opening up Google Chrome, the fans kick in and when playing call of duty or video processing the CPU's all flicker to 100 degrees. I have changed the setting now to 4, and now when playing call of duty the CPU temps do hit just under 100 degrees but never over, but when video processing they always hit 100 degrees.

So with 2 new Hades Canyon with the same BIOS versions, one does not run hot, and the other does, both with exactly the same settings, any suggestions to help, ps, i'm not very techie at all, would really appreciate any advice, thanks all!

Mine maxes out in Cinebench R20 at exactly 89'C, but I did replace the stock TIM with Kryonaut which certainly does help the contact with the vapor chamber.

Another tip for reducing thermals is switching to either the balanced or low power profile in the BIOS, and if that doesn't help then just disable CPU Turbo, which will definitely reduce things even further.

Thank you for your suggestion, i did speak to intel today and they said as long as the nuc does not switch off everything should be fine, i will have a look now where this turbo setting is, so if i disable it, this may stop the cpu getting so hot?

Thanks in advance...
