T470 fan noise garantee replace.

2018-05-30, 20:50 PM

I have the issue in my laptop that many other owners complaint too.

When any process takes more 20% of processor the fan starts and produces many noise. It's not noise because of foreign object but because of heat.

I understand that growth of temperature leads to more fan speed. But I meet that issue first time and it's my 4th thinkpad laptop during 10 years. And I meet such noisy fan first time.

I wrote to service and they propose to replace the fan. But I'm not sure it new fan will be better than that is installed.

Are the anyone who met such problem and solved this with replacement?

Hi Vitmosin,

 

Greetings from Lenovo.

 

Before replacing try to update the BIOS and check.

I installed all the crytical and recommended updates. For bios too.

But for me the question is advisability of replacement. May be all tha fans produce the same noise. And in this case I dont want to disassamble laptop senselessly.

 

I wrote to service.

They don't want to research and have a look on laptop and they just create incident for repair.

After that service man calls me and he doesnt want to research and have a look on laptop too and he says I have request for repair and I'm ready to do it.
But nobody wants to explore the problem and to say if repair will solve issue.

May be the solution is just to install TpFanControl.

For the moment I can notice 2 problems with fan:

1) Too loud

2) small click when fan starts to spin

Nobody has so problems?

Moreover there are few manufacturers: Toshiba, Sunon. I think Sunon is better
