Cool down Y510p with Dust Removal, good idea?

2014-02-20, 14:50 PM

Hi, I have a Lenovo Y510p NO SLI version and I'd like to know if it's nice to cool down the system faster using dust removal in the Lenovo Management tool. After playing a game for an hour, I'd like to use the dust removal tool to cool the lenovo down faster.

I mean, is it bad to use it 4-5 times a day? Seems that it just makes the fan to spin at maximum speed, nothing risky, but I don't know, I wanna make sure it's OK to do that, cause a admin here said that it's recomendable to use dust removal twice a year, and going to the opposite extreme (5-6 times a day) makes me doubt.

THANKS!

It will not damage anything. I have been running gpu fans @ 100% on all of my rigs for years with no failures. If you are interested, I can post the source code to a script that I wrote that continually runs the dust removal process.

A laptop cooler custs around 20$ and will help all around, IMHO, it should be an option!

Thanks, but that was definitely NOT what I asked, xD.

Anyways, I'm also interested in cooling pads, but I tried one (cheap) 2 years ago and it didn't do so much in my older laptop. I don't know what to think 'bout cooling pads.

I just posted the code in my thread. Instructions and code are hidden in the the last two "spoiler" tags. Just so you know, it does NOT control the fan, it just runs dust removal over and over, but it will push more air through your system than the factory fan profile does! I hope it helps you out.

I forgot to mention that it currently only works for English. If the buttons in the Energy Management software are in another language, the script will probably not function at all.

No problem, English here!

BTW, do you notice a difference between letting the fan cool down the laptop automatically AND using your script?

Faster cooling and lower temps?

I notice a huge difference on cooldown after heavy load. I ran a stress test and once it was complete, I timed how long it took to cool down to 45 degrees. If I let the factory cooling profile run, it took 1min 15 sec. When I ran my cooling script, it only took 28 seconds!
