New Lenovo ideacentre AIO 520 - noisy fan ?

2018-01-04, 4:11 AM

Hi 

just purchased new Lenovo all in one - it makes a lot of noise which would be the fan from the back - is there a problem with this? or is this normal to have a noisy fan with an all in one? 

thankyou - Lauretta

Same problem, AIO is only 2 days old and fan is noisy all the time. Hopefully somone at lenovo can sort this as it seems to be a problem for a few people. First time buying lenovo, not impressed with this noise.

MIne is noisy too! If I can be assured everything is working fine, I shall try to practise ignoring the noise  -but it is currently annoying, I agree.

Having the same problem, returned on the same day when I bought. After 3 weeks I got a replacement... and the new one is noisy too. I had several Lenovos without a problem but now I am dissapointed.

In the advanced power options (via control panel and power options) change the cooling plan from active to passive and set the maximum processor state to 99% which has little effect on perfomance. These settings are under processor power management in the advanced options...solved the problem for me....

I have noticed this in this AIO, too. Actually, there are different CPU equipment in 520 AIO. I think you have the one that has desktop CPU, which is cheaper.
I have the one with desktop CPU 15-7400T 60w TDP. So, with simple tasks like watching 4K videos, I hear a loud cooling fan and won't stop until stop watching.
I bought another 520 AIO to my boss and it has laptop CPU i5-7200U 15w TDP. So, he use 3d modeling and it didn't gets that noise.

Exactly the same problem. Surely Lenovo have been aware of this. Why is there no fix?

I wrote a review of the machine (in the "featured" section).  I commented on the fan noise that is present in normal use.
