What if the fan isn't capable of a lower RPM setting?

On other Lenovo models with the same problem, users have been able to write their own system-specific fan control sofware. 

 

It should also be noted that this thread has the most replies of any recent thread on this forum.  Thus, we should conclude that Lenovo is either unwilling or unable to rectify the issue.

 

LENOVO, PLEASE DO ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:

 

  • Tell us HOW and WHEN the problem can be fixed
  • Tell us that the problem CANNOT be fixed
  • Tell us that the problem WILL NOT be fixed

Re: Yoga 13 Fan Noise

Just purchased a new Lenovo Yoga...

 

First impression after turning on is this constant LOUD FAN NOISE.

 

I don't mind that the fan is on constantly (it was for my ThinkPad R61), but the noise level on this one is not acceptable.  Please fix or I must return!!!

Same problem here also. Thank you NINE for answering! I am spamming my F5 until further advice how to fix this. This would be perfect ultrabook, if the fan would be silent in net browsing and other light use.

In the ultrabook spec is their a noise factor?  If they sell it as an ultrabook and intel's ultrabook spec says XY dB then they would have to do something.

Hi all,

 

Thank you for your patience. I'm still awaiting for the teams to reply to me on their updates. Please do bare with me within this time and I'll provide more updates soon. I just wanted to check with you, I understand the fan is louder than usual but if the machine is in an office environment the fan still visible to all?

 

Hope to hear back.

 

Regards

Hi,

fan noise level is really very loud and annoying in idle state in silent environment - not acceptable. Internet forums is full of yoga fan noise problem. But on the other hand, in an office, its not disturbing, for me.

Welcome back NINE. As far as the fan noise is concerned there seems to be two distinct problems. The first is that the fan runs all the time even when temps are low and CPU activity minimal.  The second and unfortunately the one I have is a grinding noise and is clearly audible in all environments. This seems to be a manufacturing defect as opposed to a degign problem. See this blog post http://uselesspuzzles.blogspot.ie/2012/11/how-to-fix-lenovo-yoga-fan-noise.html?m=1 for more details.  I am reluctant to risk fixing it myself but might have to as there is still no sign of the Yoga bring covered by IWS despite launching in Europe and lots of other territories.  I bought mine in the USA but have since relocated to Ireland.
