Lenovo Legion Y520-15 (80WK00ESPB) low db noise from coolers

So i bought this laptop about a month ago. All was fine untill few days ago. Now under any load (the less load, the more you hear it) - coolers make low db noise, its the similar noise as some PSU makes.

What i want to know, how this cooler is named, so i can order another one and replace. Its annoying af :/

Hi there, Naggash -  


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


Since its new system, I would recommend contacting Lenovo service centres and applying the normal phone techniques to get it replaced promptly since doing anything would void the warranty.

Hi Shashi,


I have the same noise problem on the second day of use. Noise appear after reboot on AC power, regardless of CPU load.

Noise will disappear if

1) I plug and unplug AC cord, or

2) If I close and open lid (windows control panel power setting: if lid closed -> do nothing).


This trouble has to be fixed on BIOS or driver level.

Best Regards, Vassili
