Lenovo Yoga 710 15IKB loud fans and very hot

2017-03-06, 2:30 AM

Hi there,

 

 

My very new Lenovo Yoga 710 (15" IKB) laptop/two-in-one has been fantastic so far except in one regard. Whenever I play a game, the fan gets quite loud and the temperature shoots up. I'm not one hundred percent sure if this happened in the first few days but I have come to notice it far more recently. When playing a pretty standard game, such as World of Warcraft, the temp will shoot up to somewhere around 65 degrees celsius (sometimes up to 70) with the bottom getting quite hot, and the fans will become quite loud. Even a very low requirement game, like FIFA 15 (which is obviously 2 years old now), can cause the temp to reach about 60 degrees and the fans to get loud, and when downloading a driver from Nvidia I noticed that the temperature had again risen, this time to 52 degrees with the fans spinning loudly again.

 

I had earlier had a display issue that I fixed by downloading display drivers from Lenovo's website. I'm not sure if there's any driver I could download to rectify this issue (I already updated BIOS from the download on Lenovo's website)? 

Solved! See the solution

I should add that my idle temp. is 42 degrees. Don't know if that helps but there's that.

Hi there,

 

I did do the BIOS update already and that had solved the issue of the fan noise at low CPU usage, but not when gaming. The thing is, I'm not used to laptops at all so I don't know if those temps (around 65 degrees C) when gaming are normal or not.

Your idle temp seems a bit high to me but to answer your question, yes, it is normal for CPU temps to spike when under heavy load thus causing the fans to spin up high.

What temps do you have from a cold boot sitting at the desktop? ...how about after running FurMark's CPU burner for 2 minutes?

Hi. i downloaded and installed the BIOS update, but it didn't really do much except allow my Notebook Fan Control software to override the fan settings more smoothly. the fan noise is still extremely loud under a moderate load.
