How do I control the fan speed on Y530?

2019-01-02, 13:08 PM

I know this sounds stupid, but I remember having the option to control fan speed when I first started using the laptop (few days ago), but I updated the BIOS (in an attepmt to fix a charger noise) and today I decided to play Witcher 3 and it was getting really hot so wanted to see if fans were running at maximum speed, but could find no option in Lenovo Vantage.

 

Help!

Only can put to max speed

 

Try undervolt+repaste for lower temps

How lower did you go with the undervolt thing ? I'm at -.155 mv with mine. i5-8300H, 8 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD+1 TB HDD and 1050Ti. I ordered the intel 9560 wifi card and once I get my hands on that and swap it with the realtek one, I will also do a CPU repaste aswell.

Hope this will fix the high temps on my machine. :) How's your ?

It depends on the silicon. I managed to undervolt -170mv on core and cache. I have 8300H+1050TI too

 

I've done a repaste, however I got a bad heatsink which results in uneven core temps

Y530 uses tripod heatsink on CPU side which may cause uneven core temps due to difference in mounting pressure
