Yoga 900 13ISK2 CPU overheating



I have Yoga 900 13ISK2 for almost a year now and about few months ago I've noticed that fan started working quite often. After installing CPUID HWMonitor I can see that CPU get's to 100°C! What could be the cause of that? I've reset BIOS, Windows, etc, completely fresh installation and the problem persists.


I've attached a screenshot of HWMonitor.


If I take it to service I will be left without notebook for sometime, which is not really an option. 


Thank you for any inputs

Re: Yoga 900 13ISK2 CPU overheating

Hi there, Deviced                    -


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


Your CPU / GPU might be overheating and it's throttling down - this would cause your CPU / GPU to operate in a low frequency, thus giving you low FPS. 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.

Re: Yoga 900 13ISK2 CPU overheating

Hello Shashi,


I don't think you've read my message. It's not GPU, it's CPU. It's overheating and it goes to 100°C. There's no FPS issue. Windows starts and CPU goes to 100°C - this is a computer/hardware problem. I'm in AC conditioned room.

I don't think I can open my Yoga and replace stock Thermal Interface Material without loosing my warranty.
