Also.. about that warranty.. It's also a mess ;) I have on-site warranty and because of covid.. well.. you probably can imagine how it went. I wonder if every other warranty in other companies is same. I hope not.

Re:Reports of COIL WHINE in 2021 Legion Laptops

My friend.. here this forum as I understand is mostly for troubleshooting and helping with problems that owners encounter by other owners, for general discussion about the Legion branded laptops and sharing our experiences. I am sorry you are having a bad experience with your Legion 5 Pro, after further research I found that most likely the problem with the coil whine should disappear after a while.. it is not a physical problem with the device.. As a new member here also, I try to respect everyone, despite technical knowledge or experience.. If you like to reply do so if it may help someone... we learn something every day...

I do agree with CurixLV.. Lenovo's warranty is a mess and people should know about it.

I don't even want to get into detail [because it's a waste of my time] but really... You're getting those warranty plans at your own risk.. I had the ultimate warranty and it sucked. Now I have 2 months left of my on-site warranty and guess what? It sucks again.

 

Lenovo's gaming laptop do have many issues that need to be addressed and people need to be aware of it so we can force them to actually make a move in a right direction. If you really want to have a Lenovo laptop, go for it! It'll run any game you want, but also it will overheat as much as any other gaming laptop. However, some other brands will allow you to make changes to your the power profiles [including fan speeds] using their own app while Lenovo does not.

 

As for me, I am stuck with Quiet mode because.. I just don't want my CPU to run at 95C-100C during gaming ;) Some would say I should repaste or undervolt [which isn't possible anymore] but I don't think it will help at all.. It's just how gaming laptops are made and nobody cares about it.

 

The reason I am saying all this is that you dear reader won't spend money for something you'll regret. At the moment gaming laptops made by most of the companies aren't worth your money, so stay away from those laptops unless you are really desperate.

The point is that devices break or just outright die for no reasond and paying customers have a bad experience and manufacturers including Lenovo are trying to make more and more profit with less cost.. thats how business works right now resulting in genuinely unhappy people.. what we can do is help each other...

some problems are not a defect but they are really annoying.. coil whine is created from high amperes passing through a coil resulting in vibrations that create that high pitched sound... it is common in all electronics... every device produces this sound but it is inaudible in most cases..

Hello BardLapi..

this temps are not uncommon for a laptop.. but I do not feel comfortable either running my laptop like that.. if you have a ryzen based machine i suggest that you download RyzenAdj and set a limit to a temp you like and the laptop will stay there... i have mine at 84° degrees max.. i recommend also setting automatic apply under settings to 15-20 second because the bios tryies to reset the value..

 

If you are on Intel and you are unable to use the latest version of XTU to offset core voltage I have tha last version that allows for undervolt dowbloaded if you like i can upload it for you..

Greetings

 

just received my Legion 5, 5800h RTX3060

 

and i confirm there is a very bad High pitch sound coming from the laptop.

 

it seems it is the fans, since the noise gets louder as the fans spin up.

 

would calling lenovo support replace them? 
or all the fans made for this laptop are like this?

 

such a shame
