I have a new Thinkpad Yoga model 20CD-0038UK
Anytime I use any software/app which has sound capability the fan then goes to full blast and is very noisy.
for windows 8 apps the only way to stop the fan is to kill the app in task manager.
Playing an mp3 file the cpu is at less than 5% and the fan still goes flat out.
Stopping "windows audio device graph isolation" audiodg.exe also stops the fan noise (but then no sound from the laptop.
I have now tried a factory restore on the device but this has made no difference.
I understand this is not normal for the TPY which should manage to play music/video without fan cutting in.
