In my case the cooling sound is loud, but it's very clean. It's like a jet taking off in my apartment. But, at the same time, you can hear only the sound of air coming in and going out, nothing else, which is a good design.
@Yavor_Ivanov thanks for the info about re-pasting. I think it's time for me to do it and post the results. Good job!

Please note that the bad paste is after their first "repair" Maybe the factory one is not so bad. Also you can use 50% of your power mode. It drops the cpu to 2ghz and i stays at 41 Degrees instead 47 Degree (for me) .

Could you say what exactly the cooling system you are using?

Two pages ago I wrote how you can turn off your funs. It's work! But you have to keep an eye on the temperature. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Laptops/Legion-Y530-Fan-Control/m-p/4393243/highlight/true#M2604...

So... I know I'm INSANELY late, but this is what I found out so far and I hope it can help.
First of all, it seems to be that the Y530 just runs hot and that's the way it is. I don't like that aspect either, but there are some things you can do to minimize your problems:
-NEVER use "best performance" mode, always keep it on "better performance" because the first one just keeps your CPU at 3,9 MHz at all times (this is referring to the slider under your battery status);
-whenever you don't need your laptop to be at 100% power you should turn your CPU down a bit by opening the control panel, going to Hardware and Sound>Power Options>Edit Plan Settings and click on "change advanced power settings". A new window should open with a few useful tabs. Find Processor power management and click on it, then click on Maximum processor state and set it to any number under 100 (I usually keep it at 40, but you can find your own preference). Here you will see that there is, in fact, a difference between using your laptop on battery or while charging. There are also loads of useful options in the advanced settings, so just go and poke around a bit;
-if you ever want to set your fans to max speed (which is the opposite of what you were asking for) use ctrl+shift+1;
-I don't think using two screens should affect your fan speed in any way. As far as I know, that would only stress your GPU and my 1050 stays at about 40-50C at all times. Maybe download HWMonitor and check what part of your computer is getting hot.
I know I had a few more things, but I can't remember anything else right now so I'll maybe be back with more. I haven't read the whole thread, so sorry if any of this has already been mentioned before (or all of it).
