One Difference on Bios 044 for NUC8i7HVK

Observation

I finally did the deed and loaded BIOS defaults, after installing BIOS 044, and the change was significant.

After installing 044 on Friday, I just left the BIOS settings the same as they were when the NUC arrive in May. I was still getting the jet engine take off during and after Windows loading and the periodic cycling of the fans for no reason and at a very high speed. This would happen and cycle about twice every 30 minutes and the power draw was so high that it would reset my USB connections.

Wow - Load Defaults!

Using the same cooling setting in BIOS - "Balanced" that the unit shipped the NUC no longer sounds as if it's getting ready for take-off after Windows begins to load. The big cooling cycles are over too.

The difference is incredible (for me) and I should have done this before.

Any chance BitLocker is working for you with Bios 044?

Hi J5,

i don't use BitLocker on NUCs, as they're hobbyist / personal use.

Sorry to hear that BL doesn't work for your system and 044
