No help for my random shut downs and high heat? I took the whole thing apart and checked for dust buildup in the fan assembly (read about that on other threads) but there was none. I actually think it’s some kind of software issue. No one else is having this problem?My NUC8i7 has been working well with Leesureone's EFI folder. The only issue ever since upgrading to Cataline, I have been having times when it randomly fires up the fan on full blast and then shuts off completely. I have finally identified that I was having horrible overheating issues. I just installed HWMonitors and it looks like just opening a couple browser windows open or with VMWare fusion open the CPU temps are over 95deg C. Its a fairly new device so not like it would have a bunch of dust. Any thoughts on this?
For reference, I have only 1 browser window open and CPU cores are at 100 or 95 degrees C. This is with tweaking the bios to limit heat by turning off performance settings.
