Software Studio on NUC 12 Extreme Kit - NUC12DCMi7

NUC Software Studio is now setting all system fans to zero RPM when run. Subsequent fan settings within Software Studio are ignored. This is new behavior.

This is on Windows 11 version 22H2.

What BIOS version, driver version and app version are you running?

(Accurate numbers please; don't just say 'latest'; that's a useless answer)

Hi Scott

Images show BIOS and app versions. Last image shows all fans at zero RPM. Not sure which driver you are referring to?

I have to reboot to get the fans back.

Thanks

Derek

Sorry, I was referring to the Software Studio Service. Latest available - and the one you should be running - is v1.17.33.0.

I see fans displaying correctly in the Performance Mode scene. If you back out to this scene, do the speeds display correctly or are they zero?

 Software Studio Service is indeed v1.17.33.0

 

The Performance Mode scene is a quick screen grab before the fan speeds start reducing. Once at zero, the system fans stick at zero. The cpu fan seems to recover.

 

I have been investigating this all day by reverting to previous system images (using Macrium) and it might be a result of a Windows update, but I cannot identify which one.

Hello Decca,


If I may jump into the conversation, I would like to request a screenshot of the NUC Software Studio showing the fan running at zero RPM.

Hello Decca,


Thanks for the heads up, and I am sorry for the repetitive question.


Regarding your issue, I want to confirm if the issue is only present on the Nuc Software Studio software report, or if the fans aren't also physically moving.

Yes, the fans really stop. Checked via HWInfo tool.

Hello Decca,


I appreciate the information provided.


Could you also confirm if you have made any changes to the BIOS settings, or if you can recall which modifications have made your system behave in this way?


Best regards,

No changes to the BIOS.  As mentioned already, I suspect a Windows 11 update.

Hello Decca,


Thanks for Waiting for a response


I may need to forward this information to the Intel NUC team for issue replication so it would be great if you can provide me with the SSU and verify if the unit is overheating. 


Also, as you mentioned the issue started after the Windows update, let us know in which Operating System Build the problem appeared.


Best regards,

I have already provided the SSU version and Software Studio Service version - see earlier posts.

 

I have also already provided the Operating System Build in my first post! - Windows 11 version 22H2

 

The system does not overheat because, after running SSU, I do a reboot to recover the fans.

Some more info to assist in this issue - I have a earlier bootable Windows 11 on an external thunderbolt drive. Software Studio works as expected on that system.

So the working system:

Software Studio 1.35.22346.0

Winver 21H2 OS Build 22000.856

Not working on my current system:

Software Studio 1.37.22875.0

Winver 22H2 OS Build 22621.755

 

Let me know if you require further information. I am investigating it myself as best I can and will report back.

Update

 

May have found the culprit. Windows version may not be relevant.

Back onto the thunderbolt system.

As noted above, when working:

NUC Software Studio is 1.35.22346.0
Software Studio Service is 1.15.25.3

 

Updated Software Studio Service to 1.17.33.0
Still working
Updated NUC Software Studio to 1.37.22875.0 (from the Microsoft Store - is this the only way?)
Now NUC Software Studio stops the fans.

I did a BIOS update recently (within the last fortnight).  There is a possibility that Software Studio 1.37.22875.0 worked correctly before that, but this is somewhat speculative. I could test that by doing a BIOS downgrade to version 53 if you can provide a download link. I cannot find such a link on your Intel Support pages.

No, not so!
Click on the version field and then select version 53.
