Higher temperature after upgrading to bios 0080 Intel NUC Kit NUC7i7BNH

After updating the bios from 0079 to 0080 I noticed that my nuc seems to have a cooler faster than normal, remembering that I leave it on 24 hours only with Windows screen saver

 

My temperature ambiance now is 16°C

 

Model Intel NUC Kit NUC7i7BNH

Provide your nuc model number.

 

I upgraded my Baby Canyon to 0080 and the temps are fine.

When you are sitting in BIOS Setup (Visual BIOS), all power management features in the processor are disabled. As a result, the single core that is running is doing so at its highest supported clock speed. Further, all interrupts are disabled; the firmware is running single-threaded and, when there is nothing to do, the firmware sits in a loop waiting for user input.

 

When you are sitting in Windows, typically all power management features of the processor are enabled and, while multiple cores are running (and possibly hyperthreading as well), these cores are able to lower their clock speeds to very low levels (even off). Further, interrupts are enabled and, while many tasks can be present, Windows can halt the execution of tasks that currently have nothing to do.

 

Bottom line, you cannot assume or conclude anything when comparing the temperatures you see in BIOS Setup versus what you see at Windows idle.

 

Hope this helps,
