Yes that is the problem I am and a few others are expriencing. I have a feeling it happens on all X220s but others don't pay enough attention to it to notice.
Go to power manager and switch the fan to "dyanmically reduce fan noise". It will really help until a proper fix comes along
In my Power Manager, I only have an option for "Maximize performance" and "Balance all parameters" under battery. AC has the option for "Reduce noise dynamically." How can I apply this to the on battery profile?

excuse me, where can i find the switch '"dynamically reduce fan noise" in PM (i have a brand new x220 wit a constantly running fan, like a hairdryer !)

Click on Power Manager (Icon that looks like a battery) in system tray if you have it > Click on Advanced in upper right corner just below red close X button > Click the down arrow and select System Settings > Now you should see three settings. Last one is Optimize fan Control.
If you do not have the Power Manager Icon in the system tray than you can click on START > Lenovo ThinkVantage Tool and you should find the Power Manager in there

Change the plan to optimize by power source. It should appear for battery then
I am using that plan. it does not show under battery.
