SOLVED: Lenovo Yoga 13 Overheating

2014-09-14, 21:15 PM

Below is a link to my PDF report on overheating for these models. There may be several reasons as to why your Yoga 13 is running hot or overheating but this will shed light on a design flaw that I have not yet seen anyone mention online. I have included detailed analysis, before and after temperature stats and pictures showing the design flaw. This should be the one stop thread for anyone experiencing this issue. This took hours to assemble. It appears that they have corrected the design flaw on the Yoga 2 pro but the Yoga 13 owners are out of luck, honestly this should have prompted a recall.

if you look at this pic the thermal paste should be on the copper bottom not under that bar (in image 1 and 2), if you are getting thermal paste coming through a gap from the copper to the under bar (image 1 from link above) then i would say it is damaged

i can only look at pictures from the net so i cannot 100% conform it
Thx dave

Thank you for your efforts, detailed analysis and solution. I have a client with this problem and will be applying this fix once she can get me her Yoga 13.
