Legion 5 15ARH05 CPU gets hot when gaming

2020-08-24, 11:39 AM

Hi, 

 

My Legion 5 is reaching 96 degree celsius when gaming. (battlefield 5)

Is this normal? 

And i notice the fan speed is random rather than maintaining at top speed. 

How do i control the fan speed of this laptop to be at max? 

 

 

thanks

There is no standard option to control the fan speed

Most of the notebook fan speed cannot be set, the speed is determined by the computer's temperature control system.

96 is a little worrying.  Most components really should not sustain above 80 degrees.   What is also worrying is that the Legion 5's have been hailed as having really good thermal management, even by the toughest critics.  Your temps make me think you have a hardware issue. Are both fans running?

 

Also, a gaming laptop should never actually be used "on your lap".  Make sure it is sitting on a flat surface with unobstructed airflow on all sides.

Hi!

 

Iam considering buying a Lenovo Legion 5 (AMD Version) The first priority for me is heat manegement for the computer. I like Gaming of course, but I also like to have my laptop on the lap for watching movies and stuff like that. Does this laptop get to hot to have on your lap? I want it to be comfortable. If this laptop get hot. Do you have any other recommendations for what other gaming computers that have a cold underside and very good heat management. I can accept that the fans can sound a bit to get the tempature down, but I don't want the computer to have the fan on at all times.

 

Thank you if you help me

Im having this problem as well, it works fine in dedicated mode, 66c max on the GPU at full load but as soon as i use hybrid mode I see it go to 100c before the fans even kick into medium, this is very worrying without settings to manage the fans. Just a note it makes a very minimal difference in temp switching thermal profiles the fans seem to behave the same on all 3 profiles. isnt it supposed to have coolerboost in vantage? cause i dont see anything to help cool this thing down, I dont even want to game with it in hybrid mode, I cant have fun worrying about it burning all my thermal paste away....

I found 2 solution, currently i have it on hybrid mode, and my cpu is at 40% load 59c, GPU is at 100% load, overclocked 66c max, first thing is the power setting, to turn on "effecient aggresive", you can look up how to do that and second thing is rw everything, you can find the istructions here http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/lenovo-legion-5-and-7-2020.832593/page-23

just a note in hybrid mode it will say the value is 00 where you should put 80 and save/close, do those 2 things and youll have temps like mine, even not doing the first step you will see cpu temp around 72, GPU around 68, turning the boost back on(i have it at default on balanced power setting and effecient aggresive on power save)
