My NUC5i3MYHE running 10.11.6 has started to randomly shut down and show "processor thermal trip" warning on reboot. Checking in BIOS i don't think the processor is actually getting hot. Spoken to Intel who recommended updating the BIOS. I'm currently on 0030 - has anyone tried using the newest 0037 version and knows whether it will work?
EDIT - Updated bios to 0037 and seems to be running fine. Will see if it cures thermal trip! It is now doing the reboot thing after shutdown. Tried clicking for settings on page 1 but cannot seem to get them - can anyone send me the link? Thanks

Many thanks for the reply. Intel changed my NUC5i3MYHE under warranty and the new one can't go back to BIOS 0030! I'm sorry but I'm a little basic and couldn't follow Rehabman's post about IORegistry. I have downloaded version 2.1 as per the link but now don't know what to do with it! What do I attach IOreg to?
I don't see any glaring problems in this ioreg.
OK thanks for looking. A bigger problem I am having is everytime my computer goes to sleep - it crashes within 5 seconds and then shows "processor thermal trip" warning on reboot. I'm pretty sure looking in the BIOS that the processor is not getting hot and it doesn't ever shutdown when the computer is in use. Anyone else had this? Intel sent me a warranty replacement and it is doing it on this one as well?
