Nothing in those screen shots indicates any reason the fan would need to be running. I have more going on that that and the fan is idle. If you have a fan running with that level of CPU use, something else is going on.

Didja read through this thread and apply the fixes?
What websites give you louder fan noises? There are a lot of websites with video, animation, and just plain bad code that will cause any processor to work harder.

With the WLAN or while removing the WLAN, I still get a single daily slow/lag/freeze. the laptop kinda slows down and crawls, and then all goes away after restarting. is this connected to the DCOM issue we all experiencing, is there a driver that does NOT reinnstall the 'installer' file? I tried the one on Lenovo site and it immediately adds the installer back.

Lenovo has released a BIOS update with a new feature called Quiet Mode to provide a quieter fan experience for customers with Yoga 910-13IKB and 13IKB Glass laptops. Please note that this is a two-step process. After updating to the BIOS v.35, it will be necessary to then go into the BIOS and enable Quiet Mode.
Quiet Mode achieves a lower overall fan volume by making minimal changes to CPU performance and system temperature.
Modify thermal and DPTF setting, add Quiet Mode.
BIOS v.35 can be downloaded here: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS119202
For customers experiencing a continuously running fan on Yoga 910-13IKB and 13IKB Glass systems, please upgrade to the latest WLAN driver, v. 188.8.131.528. It can be downloaded here: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS119197. If this does not change the fan behavior, try uninstalling the Qualcomm Atheros WLAN Installer, then reinstalling the driver.
The Qualcomm Atheros WLAN Installer can be found in Settings -> Apps -> Qualcomm Atheros WLAN Installer. Select it and then right-click to open a menu. Select Remove It. Restart the system.
For customers experiencing a fan whistling or whine noise, the investigation continues. I would like to hear from customers who have upgraded to BIOS v.35 but continue to hear this distinct fan sound.
I am marking this post as the solution to allow customers joining the discussion to easily find solutions for two of the three reported fan issues. I will post again when I receive an update on the fan whistling/whine investigation.

I've had an opportuniy to run some tests with the new BIOS and quiet/balanced/performance modes and have some very intersting results but a question at the end.
For testing purposes I ran msconfig.exe and restarted by machine in diagnostic mode so all extraneous services had been stopped. I then ran a number of different tests using each of the modes selected in the BIOS. Here are the results:
1. Visual Studio Solution Build (each time I clean the build.) This is a real-world test of the sort of thing I do throughout the day and usually drives the fans mental (but not on my 3 year old Yoga 2 Pro which is as quiet as a mouse)
2. Performance Test from which I only ran the CPU benchmark
So, great news, Quiet seems like a real win.
However, when I used msconfig.exe to get back to normal and have all my services running again I discovered a couple of weird things:
So I'm left with a question. Is there a service that's limiting the performance of the CPU? And whilst I'm here - is this anything to do with the constant logging of the following in the event log:
The speed of processor 3 in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 71 seconds since the last report.
which is being logged by Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Processor-Power.
Amy, I hope my findings above are useful to you. My initial feelings are you've done some great work on getting this BIOS written and I'm very grateful. I still get the feeling the fans themselves are a little noisy (especially compared to the Yoga 2 Pro) but at least now they're not spinning up quite so fast now.
