Is it possible to clean the dust inside the lappy. or fans by the user itself?
If skripatch is reading this could you please tell me you cpu temp when it is in idle ( just surfing) in power saver mode and in high perf mode separately?

I read whole Ideapad section every day and sometimes Lenovo 3000. Just do not have time sometimes to reply. I try to reply every case I can handle...
Mine is about 55-60 permanently (CPU).
To clean dust you have to vent it by pressed air or take off that part of Y510 that s above cooler.
Usually I vent cooler once a month - that's more than enough.

Having a temperature in room near 25 degrees I have 77 under stress test of S&M. If I launch 3dmark before it the temp will rise to 85 after - it's due to fact that CPU and GPU are on the same heat pipe in this laptop and heating one of them causes heating of another.
I clean vent once a month in my desktop - it is staying on floor and lots of dust is collected by month. Laptop I clean once a month only due to fact that I clean them both. just by company =)
It is not needed to do so often for laptop- they collect less dust and it's OK to clen once in two months or even three months.
just blow it through by airvent or mouth - jsut remember to keep everything dry and i'll be OK. Blow while it is turned off.
