Re: Bring back fan control to the Legion Y740

2019-08-09, 16:00 PM

Will definitely be my last Lenovo product. Thanks for turning our laptops Into good looking outrageously priced space heaters. And for all things great... Do NOT contact tech support... They blame everything on the user. Including vantage not working like it should.. and try to make false claims of what voids warranty. Lol they also had no clue what a thermal pad was....  My warranty would be void if I upgraded from Home to Pro.. if I blew air through the bottom to clean it out... If I take the bottom cover off.. if I lean my head sideways and look at my screen...  They want me to send my y740 in for repair... Because of this crap written bios.. lol nope

I got the Y740  15 inch with 9xxx cpu and the 2070 MQ.  I will be testing it with this (LINK), ill take some SS of my temps with and without when I get it.  

 

From my understanding though I thought the new models were not on the new bios so the fan control was still their.  Their is no software online we can use to set the fans to max?

As far as I can tell there is no third party software that works on the Legion... The laptops with the 9th gen processor have the same isse, as long as you have the 1.08 BIOS or above...

Yes, everything works fine, when I bought it, I made a very thorough research and this Is what I chose, all things considered, it is, in my opinion, the best pick, the fact that they removed the option of maxing out the fans manually is very disappointing...

Wrong size thermal pads, and one folded up in half on top of a VRM near the CPU keeping the heatsink from sitting flat like it should be is beyond a hardware issue lol. Since giving your device voids your warranty. I swapped my pads out with .5mm arctics where they had 1mm's and adjust the rest accordingly. That helped out ALOT. Along with thermal grizzly Kryonaut, a undervolt. The laptop cooler (modded notepal with vardar fans) a change in the GPUS voltage curve in afterburner. 

I have tried every possible software I could think of . From Clevo control center. To even modding others.
