shortcomings of NUC7PJYH


It indeed supports 2x 8Gb RAMs. I configured it with 2x BLS8G4S240FSD and an SSD (Samsung 860 EVO, 500G). The RAMs work well; so far no any issues.

Here I just point out several small shortcomings I have identified:

1. The cord for the power adapter is unbelievably thin; even a mouse/keyboard cord is of much better quality than it.

2. The Fan is not aloud at all, but does make a weak sharp noise. If the environment is very quiet, this noise is audible and make me feel a little bit headache, although not so severe. I adjusted the cooling setting in the Bios to elevate the threshold to the allowed limit for cooling, which reduces the frequency of cooling and alleviates the noise problem.

Does anyone has a better way to solve the fan noise problem?

3. If a headphone/earphone is inserted into the back speaker jack, there is a weird noise like wind blowing, and the noise is not respond to the volume increase or decrease. If a speaker is inserted, such an noise is un-noticeable, thus it is not a big problem in general.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

BTW, If a headphone/earphone is inserted into the front jack, there is no such a noise.

Hello thundercui



Thank you for joining the community.



I see that you are having questions about the Intel® NUC7PJYH, allow me to help you investigate the case.



I would like to gather more information about the configuration you have on the computer. Please attach to this thread the TXT file the Intel® System Support Utility will generate:


Steps to save the report:
  1. Run the utility.
  2. Click on "Scan" to get the scanned system.
  3. Once the scan is complete click on "next".
  4. Use the "save" option, save the report to your desktop.
  5. To attach a file, you must click the "Attach" option on the bottom right-hand corner of the response box.


For testing proposes could you run the system with 8 GB of RAM? I am asking for this due to according to the Intel® NUC Products NUC7CJY/NUC7PJY TPS under the feature summary section page 11 I see that the Intel® NUC support for up to 8 GB of system memory with two SO-DIMMs.
