Re: New P51 - CPU temps hit 100C

2018-01-04, 2:44 AM

Well this is major annoying.. After 2 fan assembly replacements, a new unit, and another fan assy replacement, and then broken plastic tabs everywhere, wifi u.fl connectors that won't stay connected (because they've been taken on and off so much) and produce erratic wifi connectivity and continued heat issues she bit the dust again today. Got this at boot up.

 

One fan error. performance down. continue to boot? [y/n]

 

Press Y to Continue or N to Shutdown.

 

 

can't believe it..  :(

I think the heat problem becomes more significant day by day.

Today my P51 has very loud fan noise with about 5% CPU load. 

Calling the P51 a Workstation is a big joke...

For those that are getting high temps..are you only seeing this when benchmarking or when doing work?

If work, what type of work are you doing?

Before the new paste, browsing with a few proc intensive tabs open or installing an OS in Vmware Workstation would get it high and start throttling. 

 

Now if I run stress for more than 5 minutes it will start to throttle after the new paste, otherwise it seems better if load isn't 100%.

I see the temps while working, like rendering in blender, doing some games in unity.

I was looking at the P51's for CAD work (solidworks, Inventor, etc)  I hate hearing about these tempertatures because I have a friend who works at Lenovo who I could use his discount.  Fully loaded P51 for 1,600-700.  I'm not using blender or using GIS type programing but it's still a concern over longetitivy of the machine.

I have a similar configuration to yours but I got a max temp of 95C.

I have a ventilated cooling mat running under the laptop (undocked so that it gets more air on the left intake duct)

LCD was open (so that it dissipates heat better) with 5 fans blowing to the max. 

 

I received my unit in January and it was already serviced once to have the cooling fans replaced.

 

Frustrating.

Just had motherboard and fan assy replaced and back in business.. I'm going to not run stress tests because I don't want to know anymore.. :( I've got the long warranty so if it fails it fails.. now let's get back to work  :)
