L520: annoying fan noise

2011-10-13, 19:42 PM

On my newly purchased L520 (Core i5 2520M) the only thing tht truly disappoints me is the constantly running fan - even with no load. I have been using T-series notebooks in business for 10 years (last one was a T61) and the fan was never a noticable nuisance.

I read a number of posts on the German Thinkpad forum where folks wreck their brains how to reduce this noise.


When can we expect a BIOS update from Lenovo that provides a decent fan control??


I have 1.11 BIOS and see no reason to update to 1.13 as there is no indication that this woudl be fixed in the update.

I'd prefer a vendor specific solution over a utility like TPFanControl as I think this should be expected from a business noteook vendor like Lenovo.
