Green LED lights in NUC


Hi! Thorugh several days of observation, I found that the NUC8i7HVK remains closed, but from the frontpanel air intake I can see the green light is always on from inside of NUC. What's problem? Can it be closed?

Sorry for the unclear picture.

Thanks in advance.

Hello HankWang,

Thank you for posting.

There is no problem with the LED you see there, this green LED is going to be on if the power brick is connected to the NUC and is working. It is an indicator that the power brick is providing standby power to the NUC. We do not recommend to close this since it's part of the air flow of the Intel® NUC.

We had a previous discussion for this matter here:
