I replied to sakiv's post. His issue is to do with turbo boost. Way to fix it is change cooling profile from Balanced which is default to Quiet it makes the turbo boost and fan noise more conservative while not effecting temps. Do this Bios change first.
Boot your NUC. let it load everything and wait five minutes. Make sure nothing is open ie no triangles under your dock icons right click and close everything. Make sure to have rehabmans fakesmc hwmontioring kexts in the kexts/other folder so you can see cpu and other temps. download them from latest file here. Drag the hardware monitoring app into applications folder.
Thanks for the reply.
I tried this actually before I posted as i has seen it elsewhere. When you turn off turbo boost, my base temps are in the 30-50 range. With load it quickly shoots up to 100deg C. My other issue with the whole computer just randomly shutting off is still happening. Nothing in the logs to indicate why. As I was typing this reply to you, it happened with only this webpage open and at that time temps were not super high so now I really dont know what is causing my problem. I was totally stable on Mojave and now having these issues on Catalina.
