New Lenovo ideacentre AIO 520 - noisy fan ?

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?

Well, I've tried every combination to reach these settings but still can't find them...

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