Loud Fans on X1 Extreme due to bottom cover

2019-06-03, 14:54 PM

I found a chinese forum where someone has posted that the loud fans on new X1 Extreme (February 2019+)

are known problem to Lenovo. This is a quote:


"The dust screen is too close to the cutting airflow, especially when the speed is low..." 

source: https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/a8y81k/any_way_to_set_a_manual_fan_control_for_my_x1/ecg03u2/

 

Lenovo will release new X1 Extreme Notebooks this year and they will fix this problem by redesigning the bottom cover.

 

I hope Lenovo will also make new bottom cover for existing customers who have this problem.

 

Does any Lenovo representative have any news on this??

First, I do not work for Lenovo and have no inside knowledge.  I have access to the same things you have.  I can probably find an entry on some forum saying that Elvis is living on Jupiter.  The X1 Extreme uses a high-performance, 45-watt CPU in a case that is 18mm thick.  Most thin, light machines use 15-watt low power (and lower performance) CPUs.  More watts means faster, but it also means much more heat.  That translates into a bigger fan to move more air, and more air being moved means more noise.  I have read that the soon-to-be-released X1 Carbon will get a different case, but I expect the X1 Extreme case will be similar to last year.  The product announcement said nothing about a case re-design.
