Lenovo X1 Yoga 3rd gen CPU extremely hot

2018-05-18, 8:41 AM

Hi,

 

2 things I am noticing with my brand new Lenovo 3rd Gen Yoga X1: 

1 ) Fan runs almost all the time

2) Temp gets really really high. Almost 100 degrees. See attached. 

 

I reckon this is not normal? 

 

Thanks,

Bas

Solved! See the solution

Try this:

And apply the new BIOS version posted a few days ago here:

I still find my X1Y3 too hot (especially on my lap) but it's better with these two fixes applied.

This helped me too

Thanks
I did not get an email notification on your post so missed it.
I already had the bios tool updating my bios to the latest. But didnt do the powershell commands (as far as I can remember).
Will update if it did the trick.

(just a general off topic compaint: I am quite disappointed by my 2.200 euros purchase which in performance seems comparable to my 4 year old previous 1.000 euros Lenovo Y50-70, also i am noticing the splash screen hangs longer than my previous laptop, i will post this issue in a different post)

I do actually notice improvements! Perhaps coincidently a day after I performed the fan fix, my bios was updated (pushed by lenovo), but i dont know if thát update did it. Any way, happy!

Just got my X1 Yoga 3rd gen and experiencing this issue out of the box. I tried the fixes suggested (BIOS update, drivers updated, powercfg settings, patch) and I still experience high temperatures and spurous fan behaviour when the charger is connected, the fixes did improve on-battery temperature performance however but that could just be the lower cpu power settings on battery mode. I get 100C without CPU load even reaching 25% load as per Open Hardware Monitor. I contacted support, but I hope this is not a model issue but only a batch/device issue, because other than the temperature the device is great.

This thread should not be marked as solved, coz it's not.

I think I found some more settings that resolved the issue for me. My comment can be found here https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Yoga-3rd-gen-CPU-frequency-pegged-at-max/m-p/4152461/highlight/true#M88527
