Update on my situation. Reseller accepted to buy back my machine. Cred to them and my problem is solved.
It’s a shame though since the Lenovo seemed great on paper and had some true potential.

With 4-5% of cpu usage every 3-5 minutes the fans starting to spin. I have tried many things that are written on this forum, nothing worked, we have to find a way to push Lenovo to find a solution.
I used to have a macbook pro and macmini, almost never heard something from a fan and my routines are the same, music youtube writing something here and there etc. With this purchase just wanted to have more fun and play a game sometime.

Well, I found semi-solution for my laptop. I created new power plan, everything is same as in high performance plan, but I've changed max cpu usage to 99% and min to 5% on both battery and plugged in, this disabled turbo mode and now my laptop's fans are silent even while gaming. It's not an optimal solution for me since now I can't play some games in 60 fps, however for people who use their laptops only for work or watching cat videos on youtube, this might be a proper solution.

Putting CPU to 99% you disabled the turbo boost, thus, temp increase. I don't have this issue with fans revving, but use the option for my battery saver power profile, when I need to increase the battery life without gaming.

I am running on 43 BIOS (that's how both laptops came). On the 1st one I updated the BIOS to the one that Lenovo took down in few weeks (49 BIOS) and they replaced it with 50. But, it seems the issue is on 50 as well. However, some people has this issue on 43 BIOS as well. HP Pavilion Gaming overheats when gaming, small heatpipes and two fans close to each other. The **bleep**tiest laptop from this class, but, at least, cheap. Lenovo is much better.
Returning to previous BIOS:
1. Look through this thread, someone posted links to all previous BIOS version (you need 43 as mine, I suppose.
2. Activate back-flash in BIOS.
3. Back-flash or flash-back, whatever you prefer.
Hi again ArgelTa1, a doubt about your second lenovo y530, the one that came out good. When the temperature exceeds 50 ° C, does the fan sound like the first one? Or despite exceeding 50 ° C it still works well and you do not have any sound? Except when logically requires the notebook in games or heavier tasks and should turn on. Thank you!
