I have INTEL NUC BOXNUC8I7HVK2 when turbo boost run, run simple google chrome and cooler rotates where fast with loud sound 5-10 second then everything is quiet. If i'm off turbo boost the cooler practically does not spin and the system works very quietly. This is normal? It turns out in the turbobus mode the launch of almost any application includes a strong rotation of the cooler?
What are the cooling setting in Bios ? My NUC8i7HVK works quiet and steady with Turbo Boost enabled. Such behavior of cooling (cooling fan speed fluctuation) fan I've observed in NUV7i7DNHE, however, not in NUC8i7HVK.
Do you also have Max Performance Enabled checked? If so, try unchecking this and then checking Balanced Enabled. Similarly, in Windows, run the Control Panel Power Options applet and select the Balanced plan.
Please download Intel System Support Utility (SSU) https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility-for-Windows- . Run the SSU Scan, save the results and using "Paper Clip", attach the file with the results to your post.
- I've compared your results to SSU scan results in my NUC. I have not found any thing that can explain why your thermal solution is so sensitive. For your information: my NUC drives display 1920 x 1200 @60 Hz, while yours 3840 x 2160 @ 30 Hz. I've installed DirectX 12, while you have DirectX 11x?
- The Performance and Cooling settings in my Bios are set to Default. Try to set your setting to default also. Enter Bios, press F9, followed by "Y". Press F10, followed by "Y" to save the settings. Boot into Windows and check how it is working?
- Was your NUC noisy from beginning, or it happened some day?
