Lenovo Z580 Hard-Drive Heat

Hello all. I recieved my brand new Z580 on Saturday, 15th September. Everything in this laptop is amazing! ( apart from the webcam) but I have a problem which i cant seem to fix. The harddrive gets mildly warm to mildly hot for no reason! Can anyone help me?

Hi Nikolay,

 

please download free CPUID Hardware Monitor to check temperatures of your Z580,

HDD temps of about 40 - 50 deg. C should be OK...

Re: Lenovo Z580 Hard-Drive Heat

according to http://www.laptopmag.com/review/laptop/lenovo-ideapad-z580.aspx and http://www.pcper.com/reviews/Mobile/Lenovo-IdeaPad-Z580-Review-Functional-Mainstream-Laptop/Cooling-... the temps are about 85-90deg Fahrenheit while my one at idle goes: processor 114F/106F ( core 1/2) GPU 95F ( which is alright) hdd 107F. Isnt there any way to lower these temps while keeping the performance and NOT using cooling fans? Ive managed to understand how the pre installed software works and am using it right now...its just that the hdd is too warm for my liking and therefore i always notice it when im using it as a LAPtop.

Hi Nikolay,

 

to keep internal temperatures low, please make sure air vents at the bottom are never covered,

may use stick on rubber-feet to elevate rear of laptop by approximately 2 cm to aid air circulation.

 

See HWM screenshot of my healthy Y560p,

note that min temps are during sleep state, max temps are with the 'pedal to the metal',

at ambient room temp of 25 deg C:

BTW... these are not precision measurements, allow for at least +/- 5% sensor inaccuracy!

Re: Lenovo Z580 Hard-Drive Heat

thanks for those links Smiley Happy im really confused why they would lie and say that a 1.0 mp cropped image is better than a 2mp non-cropped image and that the camera is 720p when it is actually 480p
