Lenovo Y50-70 High Temperature

2015-11-23, 14:47 PM

I have Lenovo Y50-70 (59441908) / GTX 860M / 8GB RAM / WINDOWS 10(Upgraded)

Which i bought 5 months ago... and from past 2-3 months , i am suffering from tempratures as bad as 90c-100c.. while gaming.. whatever game i play whether it is Dota 2, Shadow of Mordor , TF2 , CSGO etc.......

 

i dont know what the reason behind this ... i have updated BIOS , tried many stuffs.. still no decrease in the temperature while gaming.. i am idling at around 52-53c.. , even while normal usage as high as 54c-62c

In the early 2 months i hardly reached 82-85c while gaming

 

MOBO/CPU TEMP

GPU TEMP

Yeah thats quite high, even idle temps.

 

Few reasons for high temps -

1) Humid/High ambient temp (Ideally should be less than 25 celsius)

2) Improper cooling due to usage. You should not use the laptop on your lap/bed. Ideal way is to use it on a desk with the bottom raised for proper ventilation.

3) Bad thermal paste job.

 

What you can try -

1) Keep the laptop raised from the surface while gaming.

2) Use air conditioning -- GOOD cooling pad

3) Use Intel XTU to reduce the CPU max clocks and voltage to prevent overheating.

Watch this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Omur2fNA0Kg

 

Let me know how much are CPU and GPU temps after these steps.

Which game you played and for how long.

1) Keep the laptop raised from the surface while gaming.

= > Its on my desk and raised from the surface the whole time......

2) Use air conditioning -- GOOD cooling pad

=> Going to order one soon, thinking of Cool Master Notepal x3

3) Use Intel XTU to reduce the CPU max clocks and voltage to prevent overheating.

=> Most probably wont do this :smileyfrustrated: , but will still give a try 

Edit : - reducing cpu max clocks and voltage didnt help as well...

About Thermal Paste , dont know i never took the laptop apart..

Notepal X3 is good.

 

Its weird that reducing the max turbo clocks and voltage did not help at all :( , when I turned down mine it reduced temps quite a bit.

About thermal paste, that is quite advanced step. You may want to take professional help for that.

 

Other than these, there is really not much you can do.

You can always play the game on medium settings, turn off ambient occlusion and other fancy stuff. Better than having a fried CPU or GPU.

You can also remove the thin air filter at the laptop back for better airflow. (Might lead to dust accumulation and will need cleaning after a few months)

Can you tell me how much clock speed and Voltage you reduced ?

 

- >

Also,

i tried to contact lenovo customer care , in helping me resolve my issue.. and they made me sick 

they were like agent took my laptop on remote access ... and asked me to install a older version of Nvidia Graphic Driver... i told him , i have a newer and bettter one installed... in the end revoked the access and next got a phone call then i asked them to close my service request .. i will rather pay a repair shop guy , to apply thermal paste/clean the inside of my laptop..

then asking lenovo .. (he was like the driver available on lenovo site is latest and it is what should be used and i was like lol :smileylol:)

Even i told him , that nvidia drivers from 358.50 and above wont work on lenovo y50... but still...

- >

I have ordered a Cool Master Notepal XL instead of X3... it will be here within a week hoping too see atleast 15c drop so i stay at 80-85c atleast...

The Y50-70 has an issue with often not having a good thermal connection between the CPU/GPU and the heatsink.

 

Like you my CPU was hitting 100c and throttling to protect itself. I also had very high GPU temps.  The tape on the heatsink to protect the CPU/GPU from conductivity had thermal paste under it and was bulging up - preventing a good connection to the CPU and GPU.

 

I lapped the heatsink with several progressively finer grains of sandpaper to smooth it out, and used a very small amount of artic silver 5 using the spread method.  It dropped my temps 30c+.

 

Once I did that, and loosened my screen hinges (look into that known issue as well), I'm happy with the laptop now.

hmm ty for info... now let me again call lenovo and claim my warranty :smileytongue:

hope they wont get stuck to the driver issue again :smileylol:

 

EDIT : LENOVO ONLY PROVIDES SERIVCE AND WARRANTY ONLY IF YOUR ONE OF THE LAPTOP PART IS DEAD, ELSE THEY WONT PROVIDE ANY WARRANTY OR SERVICES AS PER THEM WARRANTY IS GIVEN JUST FOR THE SAKE OF NAME.. :smileymad:

 

so , now i will take my laptop to one of the service repair shop near my house and get the thermal paste and stuff checked out ..
