What software do I use to control temperature / fan speed on my NUC8i7HVK?

Is it all in the BIOS, is there an app within Windows? Thanks

You configure the capability through BIOS Setup (Visual BIOS), but an embedded microcontroller (within the Super I/O (SIO) ASIC) actually implements the fan speed control.

Hope this helps,

I would add that you do not want Windows thinking it can control your temps/fans.

Just saying.

Intel Extreme Tuning Utility may do what you want, but use caution when using it as it directly modifies BIOS entries and its a little wonky...

Thanks. I'll try that and the BIOS way I've nothing against using the BIOS, it's just I don't like rebooting my machine too often. Got so many scripts and whatever running. Cheers.

No, XTU cannot help with this at all.

Yeah, I loaded up XTU late last night to see if it had any fan control settings and saw that there were none. Bummer...
