Yoga 3 Pro fan is turned on almost all the time

2015-04-30, 12:46 PM

What is the reason that my fan is on almost all the time, at the moment my cpu is at 1~ghz and 5% utilization and I can hear the fan?! When I plug in the power connector and I go to balanced or high performance mode it's like I have a helicopter in my room.. my 4 yr old acer is quieter..

Hi Darkbound

1. Download HWInfo64 and check the CPU temperature.

2. If the temperature is high (e.g. Idle at 60+C) or higher, contact Tech Support. (Thermal Paste may have dried up or not applied). Usually, when the temperature is low, the fan would either be off or on low speed.
