Yoga 2 Pro i7 heat problems!

Hello there. I bought a used Lenovo Yoga 2 pro i7 on Craigslist. The laptop seems to work good but it just gets hot. I mainly just use chrome and the phone is almost always running and the bottom gets hot. I also own a t530 and the fan on the Yoga runs more than my t530 i5. Are there any solutions to cool it down? Also, I am thinking about putting thermal paste on the CPU. Is it worth it? Thanks!

Hi there, Bigboy -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

CPU is running very hot. Applications like tp fan control can tell you the temperature of the CPU and GPU temps above 80C under load are high, and above 90C suggest that the fan or heatsink could be clogged.

 

Ambient temperature should be taken into consideration. PC will shut down during increased loads on the CPU or GPU. This happens when the CPU or GPU overheats - typically above 95C. It’s a protective measure taken as to not fry your CPU.

 

Please do clean al the vents because hot air was circulating in the hood itself and results in thermothrottling

 

Please update BIOS.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

 

 

Regards,

I am still experiencing extreme heat issues. Windows said the CPU was at 8% and according to Core Temp, the corse were both 124F+! If this does not get fixed, my CPU is going to literally get cooked. The fan is annoying, but I know it is neccessary. I wish Lenovo would do something about this! Its insane!

Your CPU / GPU might be overheating. If you get high temperatures, you can try to decrease the heat by:

 

  1. Using a good quality cooling pad that runs on high RPM or a better cooling in your room.
  2. Replacing the stock Thermal Interface Material with a good quality TIM like Noctua NT-H1Tuniq TX-4, or Artic Silver 5.

Update us how it goes.
