Lenovo X230 overheating problem

Dear support,

 

My Thinkpad X230 (NZD78MH 12.5", 3520M, 180GB, W7) recently started to frequently overheat. It happens during rather normal operation, such as browsing the internet or playing video on youtube. This causes the fan to run on maximum capacity and computer processes to slow down significantly. 

 

As the image shows below, taken after playing a random youtube video, temperatures of ~103°C are typical.

Should I have it serviced? Please help.

 

Best regards,

 

Matthias

Hi,

definitely, yes. Laptop should be serviced.
Or disassemble it yourself and replace thermal compaund between CPU and heatsink.
