Microsoft Speaks Up About Surface Pro 3 Overheating – Slashgear

More to the point, it affects Core i7 models only on restart. Here is their commentary, in its entirety: The Surface Team is aware of a very small number of Surface Pro 3 Intel Core i7 devices that are temporarily restarting and incorrectly showing a “Thermometer Gauge” icon while attempting to boot up. Our investigation reveals that the system is triggering this event sooner than it should for some people, only when the device restarts, and this does not occur when the device is booted and running.
