Re: Y560 fan running

try to perform clean windows installation by pressing one key recover button, update graphic drivers & flash bios update if there's new.

Y560 Fan control utility?

Hi All

 

        I just got a Y560 and am wondering if there is any fan control utility for this laptop?

 

I installed Dragon age and Even with a few mins of play I noticed the temp of the GPU (ATI MobRadeon 5730) rocket to 70 Cs and the fan doesnt seem to be working a lot .(i use the CPUID software with tis widget to monitor the cpu and GPU temps right now).

 

Is there a way for me to set Fan speed profiles? with temperature triggers? like...set fans to 80% if GPU temp reaches 70C? I wonder if there is any utility, either 3rd party or lenovo that allowed me to do that. 

 

Also apart from the laptop fan, which utility can I use to set the ATI fan speeds?

 

ps: i used to have a dell with an Nvidia; so im a newbie to Lenovo.

 

any help is appreciated

 

regards

Smiley Happy

Re: Y560 Fan control utility?

i have tryed many apps, MSI Afterburner, and difrent types of ati tools but nothing seem to worked for me, 59 bios here, 
laptop fan's maximum speed is 60 %, it could go more obviously, but laptop itself dont let me control it, maybe others found solution to this?

btw there is only ONE FAN , and procesor and Graphics card share it, so i dont know how this should be done...

Re: y560 FAN CONTROL

i believe that lenovo's coolers are uncontrollable...unless you ll understand the BIOS, find there SUBBIOS of videocard and Change The System Cooling parameters to your taste.

And then Flash It. Smiley Happy I must say its all real and if you have skill its matter of couple of hours.
