Y510p advanced settings in BIOS

2014-07-12, 19:25 PM

Hello;

 

I have a Lenovo Y510P

 

Specs are as follows:

 

Intel core i7 4700MQ 

Nvidia 755M SLI 2048mb x2

16GB Ram

1920x1080 Res

Windows 8.1

 

Now you can imagen this laptop gets quite hot.

 

Wouldn't be rather annoying if the fans inside the laptop was not running at there full potential when needed?

 

Well, when gaming id say the fans run at around 55-60% and the both GPU's hit 85-90c.

 

When i go into power managment and use "Dust removal" you an hear the fans run at full speed and it becomes quite loud and you can feel the air being pushes out.

 

This is what i want when i game, my laptop to be kept cool.

 

Now what i did was, start a game up, let the laptop go up to temperture, then quickly started dust removal and went back to the game, after 30 seconds, i checked the temperture and it had dropped from 89c down to 69-71c.

 

Been reading that Lenovo doesnt allow you to enter advanced settings in BIOS.

 

Can anybody help me with this?

I have this question too. I would love to see option somewhere to use full potential of fans - in next version of Energy Management app perhaps? :smileywink: Personally I use gaming headset so possible higher fans noise is not an issue.

I wanna do this too, I want the fan to be faster, cause I reach in CPU/GPU 80-90ºC when gaming. I don't have the SLI version, but that doesn't matter, the temps are really close between the SLI version and the NO-SLI version.

By the way, DO NOT use the dust removal tool to cool your laptop when gaming, cause it completely stops the fan each 7-8 seconds, and that may cause the CPU to get extremely hot. I know it kick's back again, but you know, it's dust removal, you shouldn't use it while gaming. If you were testing it, it's OK, so now you know if that speed is used while gaming, it can really improve the temps.

So, one more here, I also wanna force the fan to go FULL SPEED while gaming, or while editing videos or rendering them. I've noticed that the CPU goes from 3.4GHz to 2.4GHz when I render videos, because of the temps. Well, If the fan can go full speed at those situations, then the CPU could work faster.

I have done some looking around on the internet and have found a lets say mini fix.

Make this CLEAR before clicking the link that i am about to give you:

----------- Beginning The Fan Mod -----------------
The Fan will ALWAYS run at 100% it cannot be changed unless you reattach the wire.
While cooler temperatures are always good this does sacrifice battery life.
This is all likelyhood voids your warranty use at your own risk.
The fan will be significantly louder than normal and will likely be very noticeable.

Well, that's not a solution...

Why Lenovo doesn't just update Energy Management and put there a button of "Fan Mode" so the fan can reach max. speed?

We could have this laptop as always, but also choose an extreme mode. And I think it should take 5 minutes for them.

As i said, its a mini fix.

 

Its come down to, somebody having to take apart their laptop, to speed up the fan, which is rediculous. 

 

It wouldn't take them long at all to make a mode called "Fan Mode" but at this moment in time, there isn't and people are having to go to these lengths, just to pro-long their machine, which cost me £999.

Yeah, I know, but it's kinda overkill to open the laptop and unplug a wire to fix this. I don't know...

 

But hey, CPU and GPU can reach 80-90 in a session, and that's right. It's not super comfortable, but it won't damage anything. The laptop will last a lot of time.

 

I wish lenovo take care of this, but I don't think they will ever release an update of Energy Management or something that fixes this.

Yeah it is overkill just to get some cooling.

Its just annoying that something so simple, won't be done, due to bad customer service and laziness.

Just need to find out how the Dust Removal command communicates within the system, could be hidden answers to this problem.
