    I have acquired a used intel NUC8i5BEH which is supposedly a 90W model.

    The PSU supplied from the eBay seller is a 19V 3.42A PSU which is 65W. Supposedly this was supplied when it was purchased...

    The NUC runs and powers up without any apparent issues but I'm unsure if this is an issue I should ask them to rectify?

    Does running this at a lower wattage cause issues that I need to address? Am I being too cautious?

    This seems to imply that it's supposed to come with a 90W power brick

    It *should* be ok with a 65W brick but you might run into problems if you hammer it or have a load of stuff connected [though that's true of all of those kinda systems]

    I guess the amperage would be low, but if you're not beating the hell out of it I don't imagine it'd be a huge problem..

    90w power brick is likely to be something like 4.7 amps, assuming it's also 19v.

    Yeah it's hard to know at what level the underpowered PSU might be an issue.
