Re: Yoga 910 crazy loud fan even when CPU at <35%

2016-12-06, 5:41 AM

Hi all, so went ahead and exchanged my lenovo 910 special edition for another one instead of buying a different machine like i planned. the rep convinced me to give it another shot and boy am i happy i did. Same specs and features except I have yet to hear the fan!!! at all!!! I extremely skeptical and was really close to walking out with a macbook pro but am very happy I tried again. I have been overloading it with tasks and it is performing like a $1600 lap top should. I dont know if this helps anyone but i think it is very possible that there is a bad batch (very large) of fans out there. for the record both of my machines were i7, 512ssd, 16gb ram, and were the special edition glass tops. first one was absolutely abysmal, the second one is operating perfectly.

I ended up returning the 910 & getting the surface book performance base. I've used the SB for more than a week now for an average of 9 hours a day and I remember once or twice when the fan turned on & when it did, it was pleasant to hear (quiet & subtle). In multiple tests, the CPU remained 50% used for over 20 minutes without The fan turning on. 

 

I have few days left in the return period & I hope Lenovo would release a BIOS update before then. The SB is way too expensive & I like the look of the 910 more.

I am officially done. I have my 3rd Yoga 910. The 2nd one wouldn't charge.

This one is the loudest of the 3 with the fan noise. It is absolutely unbearable. So high pitched. I just can't handle it a moment longer. I am almost in tears with this. The amount of hours I have spent on this. I feel so bad for Best Buy.

This is the toughest relationship Ive ever had with a product. On my second SE 910, everything was going great until I installed Kaspersky. My CPU usage is consistently around 40-60% and the fan is working non-stop. Going to try webroot as I hear it is a lighter load on the PC, or I may eat the bullet and get a XPS with half the specs :smileyfrustrated:

Hey everybody, I just wanted to let you all know that I purchased the special edition glass lid Yoga 910 from best buy yesterday (4k screen, i7, 16gb ram, 512 ssd). I have not tested it heavily yet, but so far the fan has been barely noticeable. My most intensive test yet was playing 3 different youtube videos in 3 different browsers, plus having netflix playing in the background. It honestly didn't get as loud as I was expecting, and i haven't heard the fan make the high pitched whizzing sound everyone has been mentioning. 

 

So far so good, but i'll definitely keep you updated.

 

Oh ya, and if anything is gonna be drive me into returning this laptop, it's the ridiculousp lacement of that right shift key.

New fan issue I recently discovered.

 

Fan is now remaining on even after I close the lid on the laptop from anywhere between 3 to 30 minutes - 3 to 5 minutes on average.

 

Quite frustrating.

 

Also, strangely I went a week where the fan issues seem to have resolved themselves, than out of the blue again a couple of days ago, the loud fan issues with low computing processing sprang up again.

 

From what I can tell, these fan issues appear to be completely sporadic.

Watch the video of the screeching fan:

I was so excited to purchase the Lenovo Yoga 910 Special Edition. I got number 1805 of only 4000 that were made. The computer is beautiful and would have been my second Lenovo Yoga. I also own the Yoga 2 Pro, which I have loved by the way.

I opened the box and the computer was beautiful. It has a glass back panel and 4K UHD screen. Everything looked wonderful then I turned it on. Almost immediately the fan noise started. It was like fingernails on a chalkboard. A scratchy whiny screech that was completely intolerable!

I went on Lenovo's forums and found that dozens of others were having the same problem, so I promptly returned the machine to Best Buy. I'm so disappointed.
