Re: Legion Y530 Fan Control

You're right. Repasting is not a common thing that a regular consumer can do, and it should not be the consumers problem. It should have been fixed at the factory. if I could I would repaste the computer for you for free i would, because I still think the Y530 is a fantastic computer, but it's probably not possible.

 

Under-volting is only a workaround fix to the PRIMARY underlying problem which is, the stock thermal pad is poor and not transferring heat properly to the fan. This is the main issue. 

 

If you can find a friend who is knowledgeable with repasting, if done properly, it does not void warranty. Does not require removal of the fans either, only the bottom lid, and the heatsinks only.

Re: Legion Y530 Fan Control

Hi iidxgold,

 

Well, I know how to repaste, I am just too busy right now for doing it Smiley Tongue 

 

Nevertheless, the fans behave weirdly and Lenovo should review their software because it annoys many people.

 

I have been using Linux for working recently, and I noticed that the fans never kicked in while working (nothing super hardcore, just browsing and basic software development). The same type of work on Windows, and fans will spike randomly. I would expect the opposite, because Windows, from my experience, has much better resource management. Anyway, I will try to force the fans to kick in Linux and see if they behave the same as in Windows.

At this point I am wondering if the issue is not on the BIOS/EC Firmware, but on Lenovo's software for Windows or eventually some provided driver. I don't have time right now for a Windows clean install and find out what is causing the fans to behave like this, but if anyone has some spare time and patience, give it a try! Vantage provides interface to activate fans in a super fast mode, so this one could be the responsible for overriding the fans table. But, take this with a grain of salt.

Re: Legion Y530 Fan Control

After the initial test, the first thing I did was do a fresh install of Windows off Microsoft's stock Windows iso, then applied individual Lenovo/Intel drivers, then Nvidia. i did not install any Lenovo software. The fan behaved the same way. Then I repasted, the problem went away. I installed Vantage a few days after repasting.

Re: Legion Y530 Fan Control

Hi. What type of paste do you use? I repaste my laptop and for some reason it started overheating... I am using zalman stg2, i used it before for macbooks, aser laptops and geforce 1070 and everything was great. Stock paste was solid and my is liquid.

I used Arctic Silver 5, and I applied a very thin layer.
