Re: Y560 fan running

try to perform clean windows installation by pressing one key recover button, update graphic drivers & flash bios update if there's new.

Y560 Fan control utility?

[ Edited ]

Hi All

 

        I just got a Y560 and am wondering if there is any fan control utility for this laptop?

 

I installed Dragon age and Even with a few mins of play I noticed the temp of the GPU (ATI MobRadeon 5730) rocket to 70 Cs and the fan doesnt seem to be working a lot .(i use the CPUID software with tis widget to monitor the cpu and GPU temps right now).

 

Is there a way for me to set Fan speed profiles? with temperature triggers? like...set fans to 80% if GPU temp reaches 70C? I wonder if there is any utility, either 3rd party or lenovo that allowed me to do that. 

 

Also apart from the laptop fan, which utility can I use to set the ATI fan speeds?

 

ps: i used to have a dell with an Nvidia; so im a newbie to Lenovo.

 

any help is appreciated

 

regards

:smileyhappy:

Re: Y560 Fan control utility?

i have tryed many apps, MSI Afterburner, and difrent types of ati tools but nothing seem to worked for me, 59 bios here, 
laptop fan's maximum speed is 60 %, it could go more obviously, but laptop itself dont let me control it, maybe others found solution to this?

btw there is only ONE FAN , and procesor and Graphics card share it, so i dont know how this should be done...

Re: y560 FAN CONTROL

i believe that lenovo's coolers are uncontrollable...unless you ll understand the BIOS, find there SUBBIOS of videocard and Change The System Cooling parameters to your taste.

And then Flash It. :smileyhappy: I must say its all real and if you have skill its matter of couple of hours.
