Intel Nuc overheats

Jump to solution

Hi there,

my Intel Nuc NUC7i5BNB overheats whenever I use it longer than 3 hours.

It switches off and it takes 1/2 h till a new boot is possible.

It happens when it has been idle.

It is worse when I am work with photos and watch a movie.

It gets air, the air ways are free.

What can I do?

Thanks for your help

Get a can of compressed air and clean it out.

In the future, provide a dust free location with adequate ventilation for your nuc.

Also, you have not tried under or overvolting, have you?

Actually, after this much time, compressed air may not be enough. You may need to remove the blower in order to clear the dust buildup. Do not remove the heatsink; only the blower itself. The buildup will be between the heatsink and the blower.

There are multiple videos on Youtube related to this; open this window: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=intel+nuc+fan+cleaning.

Hope this helps,
