Great to hear, that it works with your Yoga 720 too. Since I use this little app I'm be really happy with this Notebook.

Re: Yoga 720 13" FAN NOISE - UGH!!!

The fan noise is caused by Microsoft's Animalware software running in the background. For whatever reason, the app pegs the CPUs. If you turn off uneeded Background Applications in Settings this happens much less often (for example, Candy Crush was running in the background) .  After removing a few background apps, about 99% of the time, my laptop is completely silent.

 

See some of the other posts on options for controlling the fan itself.

Simply throttle the CPU (in battery mode) in Power Settings and the noise will be gone:

Betreff: Yoga 720 13" FAN NOISE - UGH!!!

2017-06-28, 5:51 AM

Hi, I have the Lenovo 720 13' but the BIOS Update is for Windows only while I am running Linux exclusively.

 

Is there a way to convert this .exe to an ISO I can boot from?

 

Thank you!

My Lenono says there's no BIOS updates as well. Where did you find the online tool? I can not locate it

YES! This this this. I have hated this laptop since I bought it strictly because of this.

 

I have my profile set using the same device, but I have the "Fan #1" slider over to 87.5%. This way, the fan doesn't kick in at all until it's hitting over 70C, which should be pretty rare unless doing something graphics-intensive. 

 

I really only use this laptop for browsing, and this has made it 100% better than what it was before. Kudos!!

Same issue here. Laptop is great but the fan is so annoying. Can somebody from Lenovo please give us an update on this issue? Are you working on new BIOS?

Hi, yesterday I installed it. It was no problem, it's was done in 5 minutes.

 

With old bios the fan gets loud at approx 50°C. With active quit mode, it starts still at 50°C, but with a very low speed. First if the cpu temp reach 60°C it gets loud again. So I think this is a great improvement.

 

My config is:

- Fan control with config "Lenovo yoga 2 13"

- Max processor state at 90% (in the Windows power options)

- and now with quit mode istead of performance mode in Bios

 

Without Fan Control the fan starts with low speed at 50°C. With Fan Control the fan is complete off bevore you reach 57°C.

 

My Yoga 720 ist the most of the time complete silent.
