Description of Issue

Hi Guys, my Roon core keeps crashing and I feel like it started when I tried out a DSD file to my Naim streamer. Since then the machine crashes continuously, playing 3/4 songs on any device and then I get this circle where it waits for my Roon core. Can’t access the web interface and have to restart the NUC manually for the thing to work again. Help!

When this happens, is the NUC powered-off?

My guess, is your NUC is overheating, and the Intel BIOS is shutting off the power to prevent CPU damage.

Probably time to give it a clean; this means disassembly and blowing or vacuuming dust from the fan and ducts.

There is absolutely nothing more awesome than a straightforward answer, simple fix and it works too.

Thank you SO much, as that was indeed the issue! I’ll keep an eye on it from now on! :pray:
