NUC 7i5BNK fan

Hello,
I have a NUC 7i5BNK which is about 1 month old. The fan is really loud, 3613.00 in BIOS. Changing the profiles is not making any difference. I've seen other posts on this problem and have tried solutions offered there but nothing has resolved the problem. I have the newest BIOS version installed.

Emmett, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.


In order for us to provide the most accurate assistance on this scenario, we just wanted to confirm a few details about your system:

You mentioned you purchased it a month ago, was it working fine before?

When did the issue start?

Did you make any recent hardware/software changes?

Which Windows* version are you using?

Does the problem happen at home or in the work environment?

Please attach the SSU report so we can verify further details about the components in your platform, please check all the options in the report including the one that says "3rd party software logs":

Any questions, please let me know.

Hello Albert,

The problem has been happening since the beginning. It is only running Home Assistant in a home environment, no Windows (therefore I cannot create an SSU). The fan is already loud when I just go into the BIOS. I can take a picture if you want. Thanks for tze help.

Hi Albert,

I made a video of the problem. In the first few second you can listen to how loud it is. After that you can see the fan speed and see how it doesnt change when changing profiles.

Hello Emmett, Thank you very much for providing that information.

 

Let me apologize for all the lateness, after reviewing the case, we determined that the problem could be related to a hardware issue with the Intel® NUC itself.

 

So the next thing to do will be to replace the unit, for us to be able to do that, please get in contact directly with Intel® Support so we can further assist you with the replacement process:
