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

Lenovo really should offer replacement fans with one not as piecing

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

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:

http://youtu.be/cqUQMt3y02A

 

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.

I have had 3 of them. They are phenomenal laptops great screen, great trackpad etc......provided you do not work in a quiet room. If you do then you cannot use this machine without throttling the CPU.

I am a programmer and often work in a room with others. I cannot throttle the CPU and I cannot have it sound like a jet engine, so i returned the units

Did your units sound like the video posted above?  I can understand some fan noise but that video was really bad...

I don't want to scare you but 1 did and the other 2 are a lot worse than the video. I feel the video didn't capture how high pitched the sound was. It is a lot like a mosquito.

There isn't a clear winner right now in the portable laptop category. Every laptop has a downside:

Lenovo Yoga 910 - Works great for those not working in a quiet environment

HP Spectre X360 - Trackpad isn't as good as Lenovo and no 4k resolution option

Macbook Pro 2016 - Horrendous keyboard

Razer Stealth - Only 12.5 inch screen and awful coil whine

Dell XPS - Expensive and coil whine noise


There really isn't a clear winner, its about finding what you can deal with

wow, that's a bummer.  Looks like I'll roll the dice then, I agree with you the other choices aren't that great, hopefully I'll get a good batch...

I also have the special buy from best buy with the glass lid and the fan sounds like the lap top is going to take off!
