Re: Thinkpad X1 Extreme weird noise / Fan Noise

I just bought a new X1 Extreme with 256 GB SSD , 16 GB RAM and Full HD.

 

It's now 2 days that I got it and I also have the problem with fans.

They have this high pitch whistle and it's not coil wine but the airflow.

 

What I've discovered (while upgrading RAM) is that when I open and remove the bottom cover and then turn the laptop ON
this noise is gone... I can only hear airblow and no whistling... I need to inspect this further when I get home.

 

Is there some solution for this, maybe someone has the same problem?

 

It seems to me like something is blocking/disturbing the airflow when bottom cover is in place...

Re: Thinkpad X1 Extreme weird noise / Fan Noise

I just bought a refurbished X1 Extreme and the fan is loud, yes, but there also seems to be a sort of additional sound, perhaps "electronic" is the proper term, but very irritating.  I've owned W510, W520 with Extreme processor but this is louder than that, and I have little doubt the original owner returned it and they just "refurbished" it and sent it out to me.  I'm going to demand they send me a new one.

Yes, and I bought the one w/o the 4k monitor to save battery life and reduce frequency of fan.

The facts,

 

High pitch noise from fans is due to the anti dust mesh on the bottom. I have removed only the parts where the vents are and that noise is gone.

 

The other noise is due to the electronics and that is a matter of luck... some people get it with very low noise where you can barely hear it.
