T440p high temperature with 4910mq CPU

2020-02-14, 5:29 AM

Hello I have installed the 4910mq cpu for my t440p and it works and boots up but the temperature of the cpu itself is rather high and is idling on 55-60c and watching hd youtube videos raises it to about 70c, with gaming and intensive tasks raising it to 91-92c. This has caused the laptop to power off a couple of times from overheating. Is there a was to get the temperature down to normal/cooler levels? I am running Ubuntu 18.04.3 x64. Thanks.

One of the most important checks for a proper cooling is that you use a good quality thermal paste and apply only a very thin layer over the CPU die. 

 

Too much paste is not good. It's also important that before the repasting you clean the old paste from both CPU and heatsink using  100% alcohol.

 

Which thermal compound brand did you use btw?

The thermal paste I used is the hy510 thermal grease found off amazon or eBay. I was thinking of buying the master gel nano found on amazon which has really good reviews in terms of lowering heat. Would this be a good option to replace the current thermal paste I've used?

I recommend using Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut. This is a very well known paste (very appreciated in the modding scene as well)

Hello I have applied the thermal paste I mentioned from amazon in my previous post and although the paste works, the computer is now having problems with POST and is telling me "Error sending end of post message to ME" followed by the laptop turning off. I Ran lenovo diagnostics and it is telling me there is no problems found. I am thinking this is the cause of the random shutdowns and it was not overheating. Is the motherboard dying or is there a setting to change in CMOS?

That's Intel Management Engine, try going to the "Config" tab in the BIOS, and disable the "Intel Smart Connect Technology"

There is no ME option in the BIOS, only Intel AMT which is already disabled.

Weird, I've never seen this error before. Try loading the BIOS default values (press F9 and F10 to save).

Sorry didn't work. I think the motherboard is starting to go bad so I ordered a replacement off eBay to see if this fixes the problem for good.
