Re: E530 - pulsing/whiny fan @ no/low load

Last I heard, WhinyFan had not been banned.
Nevertheless, there is a difference in claiming one's rights as a customer and being obnoxious, while WhinyFar was the later.
Remember: this forum has rules. You have a right to express your opinion, otherwise this thread wouldn't exist. But it's against the rules to be rude towards either Lenovo or other forums members. If you keep your opinion civil, then it will stay on the forum and make the place so much better for everyone else.

Re: E530 - pulsing/whiny fan @ no/low load

I absolutely can`t manage how this terrible issue is still unatended. ¿Is this an Acer forum or something?

 

Last night, I was closing the order of two Thinkpad Edge e530 NZQM3SP (black finish, i7-3632qm, 8G ram,  GeForce GT 635M...)... since I found this thread.

 

¿An issue reported a year ago in a thread over 800 post still without solution? ¿A patch-solution covering 1/3 of the problem as the only answer since a year? Absolutely amazing...

 

Well done Lenovo. One customer lost overhere. ¿said one? osorry, I mean at least 10 people are waiting for my 800-900€ laptop election, waiting for my words about the choice. As far as I know, social networks make numbers change quickly. You are losing a major battle here, maybe the war.

Hi Rius,

 

I agree with you. I was going to buy another E530 for dad, but I go for an ASUS... :smileysad:

And here I am. After a tooo long, relaxed and comprehensive reading, my thoughts about this 1 year old and 82 pages topic:

 

1. Still no fix for this major issue. Bios 2.52 "seems" to correct the fan oscillation (watch some users are still reporting the issue) BUT, now the fan never stop spinning, it does too fast (and loud) when idling, and still there's no proper speed scaling according the system temp.

 

2. Still there's not fix, but the admin marked the issue as "solved". Meaningful actitude.

 

3. If you are still hopeful waiting for a change of wind in this problem, you are wasting your time. I feel so frustrated when reading custormes experiences and watching the lack of feedback and solutions by the vendor side. 

 

Only 3 points. Keep it in mind. Don't go wasting your money and time: go for another machine. Better another brand ;)

Hi Josep,

 

As I said, I was absolutelly focused in this machine: about to buy one for me and another for my girlfriend.

 

A bunch of guys are waiting for my election (yes, I'm the nerd friend :smileytongue:), and many others waiting for my words in forums, blogs and many others social networks.

 

My thoughts are clear now :)

 

PD: Josep, you have a private mail ;)
