Yoga 260 overheats and shuts down, but fan speed never gets up to 100%

2017-06-28, 16:44 PM

My Yoga 260 sometimes overheats and shuts down when I'm doing video work. But the fan speed never speeds up to 100% before it shuts down. Is there any utility to increase the Yoga's fan speed?

So let me get this straight, you hit 'go' to render a video in Adobe Premiere (or whatever) and your PC will zip along until it gets so hot it shuts itself off?  Shouldn't it throttle the CPU before that happens, and just do math more slowly?

Looks like it. I'm not sure if it's throttling down the CPU, but it's certainly not maxing out the fan speed. And this is with the latest BIOS update, with fan settings set to performance.
