I have a Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13, which came with an i5-3337U processor, 4GB RAM and 128SSD.
I replaced the ram with http://www.integralmemory.com/sites/default/files/uploads/dpdf/IN3V8GNAJKXLV.pdf as I often found that 4gb wasn't enough.
My laptop is now running at about 60 degrees celcius for each core. I don't know what it was before as I hadn't measured it before, but the fans sound louder. Have i installed ram that isn't compatible or something? It runs well and multitasking is now better, it just seems louder and hotter than before.
Thanks in advance.

Hi, DM –
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
First of all, I recommend you update your motherboard BIOS if an update exists. Sometimes new memory profiles will be included. It's probably a timing issue, not a frequency issue.
To test properly you would have to:
1) Run with slow memory for five minutes in idle. Record highest CPU core temp.
2) Repeat with faster memory.
3) Repeat with slower memory again (because things are heating up).
Update us how it goes.
