Lenovo Legion Y530 Overheating problem

2018-11-30, 13:46 PM

Hello guys, I am new around here. But I joined because of my problem. I bought Lenovo Legion Y530 like 7 days ago and I installed GTA V to play Single Player and Online too.

While I was playing, the laptop was overheating, I could even feel warmth from keyboard. I installed "Core Temp" program and tested CPU temperature and Cores went to even 90+ °C while gaming. In idle, while not working anything laptop is silent and temp is around 40-48 °C for each core. Is this a problem or just a regular thing, since I saw that my CPU i5-8300H can go to 100°C, and on Intel site they told that it is normal for CPU to go to 100°C without causing any problems. What should I do or can I do anything?

 

My specs:
CPU: i5-8300H 2.30GHz up to 4.0GHz
GPU: GTX 1050Ti 4GB

RAM: 16GB DDR4 2667MHz

SSD: 512GB

Download intel extreme tuning utility or throttlestop. I recommend intel extreme tuning utility if you never used such software because it is very simple and easier than throttlestop. Start with -100 (set core voltage offset -0.100 and click apply) undervolt and test. Then increase a little if everything goes ok with -0.100 till you find sweet spot. This will help for sure.

Thanks for help mate. I already did some research in between and found nice tutorial for CPU with ThrottleStop. So I did some undervolting and I started GTA V and temperature for 5-7 minutes didnt go above 75. I hope they will stay there for rest of the time while I am gaming. I am not able to test that right now so I'll do it later. Also I did undervolt my GPU with Afterburner and that went well too I hope.

If there is anything else after my test I will write it here. Anyway I set for -.125 for core and cache.

If you wish to, replace the thermal paste too. The stock one is crap

I dont think I can do it myself, because I will void warranty. I need to ask the place where I bought it, but thanks. I'll ask around.

Mine over heats but I undervolted to -1.190V then problem solved. I want to change the thermal paste to see if performance will increase. Will conductonaut work for lenovo legion y530? I'm not sure if the heat pipe used has aluminum materials in it.

Use kryonaut instead. Liquid metal too dangerous... If you move a lot especially

Re:Lenovo Legion Y530 Overheating problem

Hello, everyone

 

I have a Lenovo Legion Y530 for almost 1 year with the following hardware and latest version of BIOS:

 

CPU: INTEL CORE I5-8300H PROCESSOR 8M CACHE, UP TO 4.00 GHZ

RAM: 16GB 2X8GB DDR4 2666 MHz

Two SSD: Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500GB + Samsung 860 Evo 500GB

VIDEO: NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1050 (4GB GDDR5)

 

I had big problems with overheating while playing games or rendering videos. 90 - 95 degrees Celsius without Undervolting in balanced mode. I received Thermal Throttling every 3 - 5 seconds when playing games or other tests. I tried ONLY with undervolving to -130V and there was no particular difference maintaining 85 - 90 degrees Celsius. (I also think I had a bad thermal paste replaced at Lenovo Authorized Service when my motherboard was replaced.) BUT I did a test with downgrading the Turbo Ratio Limits to 33 on all cores (default values ​​40 40 40 39) and again -130V Undervolving the processor. I got maximum temperatures of 75 degrees Celsius at a constant CPU speed of 3.5 GHz. 

 

Yes, I know.. The processor does not run at 4.0 GHz, which is the default value for this model processor, BUT I solved the problem of overheating and keep the performance. 

I hope I've been helpful. :)
