It had the exact same issues. It felt like the chassis was designed to throw that fan noise towards the user through the keyboard. It drove me mad in a silent environment. I returned it as well.

Can you try to check if it has the same BIOS version as the original machine that had the same fan activity?

Re:Thinkbook 16p G2 fans running constantly

Im having exact same issue as op. The fans kick in at very low temp (<40c) and the noise is considerable. The fan profile doesnt seem be thought out at all. It revs from 0 to maybe 50% instantly and turns of instantly too, no smooth ramp up or down. I also suspect the fans were better before I updated to the newest bios few days after purchase. I wonder why there is zero fan control in vatage software? Not even profiles (silent/auto) which you get in legion series?

 

I have used ultrabooks with same 5800h processor that didnt run fan unless stressed. In this case the fans run considerably even when processor is barely utilized at 2-4%.

 

Im sad to say, otherwise great laptop is pretty much ruined with such a stupid thing. I will have return it next week if no solution is found :(

I wonder why the update does that? There is no mention of fan / embedded controller changes on the list

No update did that, it's the default for a variety of old and current BIOS versions, it always had this fan curves and (non) control.

Thank you spidey for reaching out to us.

 

For ideas how to improve this situation one might look here: https://forums.lenovo.com/topic/findpost/2863/5104488/5458598

 

As a Linux-only user a non-Windows-exclusive solution would be much appreciated (no drivers, no tools but BIOS/EFI/ACPI).

 

Thank you again and have a nice day.

My personal fix for the issue: I went with a new Macbook Pro. It is supposed to have fans in it. But I wouldn't know because I never heard them.
