Unfortunately there is no such information for the fan speeds in this 3rd party tool as you can see also in the image attached. Any other options ?

 

 

try hwinfo.

 

Tech-Savvyness does not replace reading the fine manual.

Wow, thats really weird. I just tried OHM on my T480s and it is also not reporting the fan speeds. I guess the software doesn't recognize the sensor correctly? I remember that on my older machine it worked, but it seems to be different now. You could alternatively try to check the RPM speeds through SpeedFan v4.52 ?

I also have this coil whine on my T590. it's there when I'm on power cable and don't hear it when I'm on battery!

very annoying sound.

This is one of the symptoms that accompanies coil-whine - usage on battery vs usage while its being charged or under load.

Even though it is more common with modern and newer devices, older devices are unfortunately no exception :/

So that means that there is no solution-workaround provided by Lenovo for this issue ?

This is nothing specific to Lenovo products and affects products from all manufacturers. It doesn't affect performance and also doesn't pose any risk to the hardware itself, so as long it is really coil-whine that you are experiencing on your machine, there is no way to circumvent this. If you are still not sure if this is the symptom that is causing the noise on your machine, you can get in touch with our service to get your machine examined.
