I got my Y470 (i7-267QM, 8G RAM, Nvidia 1G video) 2 days ago. I noticed one thing, once the machine is turned on, the fan keeps running. No matter how many programs you are running, for example, if I only open one "chrome" window and browse internet, the fan will run. It is annoying because it generate a sound like "the sea tide up and down" . at this moment, my CPU usage is 0% and physical Memory usage is 22%. My old Dell Inspiron6400 makes noise too but it is constant at the same level. Can anyone give some suggestions?
