I bought a new Lenovo Yoga 710 15' about a year ago. I was mainly using it for some simple modeling and game programming. Nothing to fancy or intense. I recently started having issues with the laptop running hot. I figured it was because I have been trying to model some more intense meshes recently. However I have stopped modeling and I found that the Hard drive is still running really hot, between 57'c and 60'c even when I just start up the laptop. That seems really hot and I just wanted to know if anyone has had the same issue or if there is anything I can do to stop my hard drive from running so hot? I have run a few diagnostic checks and it seems that there is nothing wrong with the hard ware currently. I just don't want to wake up one day after working and find that my laptop has melted or anything like that.

Hi DannyK89 ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Among HDD (WD data souce) Operating 0 to 60 , Non-operating 40 to 65
On some discussion for SSD , such operational temperature would be higher ( 0 - 70 °C ).
The main factor here is if there would be a remarkable S.M.A.R.T. error as it is an early predictor for harddrive failure rate.
" Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) captures drive error data to predict failure far enough in advance so you can back up. Yet SMART focuses on mechanical failures, while a good deal of a disk drive is electronic, so SMART misses many sudden drive failure modes, like power component failure."
So if you feel that the heat is even felt through the chassis (cover) as hot to touch or would cause burn on prolonged contact then it would be best to call in technical support specially if your assured that there are no obstructions from the vents .
Hope this help answer your query.

Thanks for the information. I will keep that in mind when I am using my laptop. I recently took the back cover off my laptop to check the vents to see if there was anything clogging them and it looked all clean. I will continue to monitor the cover to see if it gets that hot. If it does get that hot I will make sure to inform technical support so that I can get some help with my computer. I'm pretty sure my computer is till under warrenty so that shouldn't be a problem.
