Hi There,

 

yes it is a heating issue, I had the same.

What is happening is when a certain temp is reached your lenovo y50-70 starts throttling the CPU

for it to cool down a bit then speeds up when it does.

My first recommendation is get a laptop cooing stand  ( one where the fan actially blows at your vents)

Secondly, make sure your air path is clean - no gunk in the intakes or outlets (or fan if you want)

Thirdly google ideafan v1.5, it is not lenovo issued software but it addresses the heat issue a bit.

(set the fan to start spinning faster at 60C with the app, it will help)

for one with fans near the centre top. There is also one with adjutable fans.

I am not going to say one is better than the other, but I had no success with centre fan ones.

I got some fong-kong one with two fans, where the top fan blows over the y50's opening.
