Re: Thinkpad X1 Extreme weird noise / Fan Noise

I have the same issue on my new Extreme, I found this URL and solution on the Lenovo support site.  Try this and restart your machine.  It helped mine...all the best.

Hi, the link provided does not solve the P1 issue, right?

Thanks, but the X1 Extreme and P1 are not listed under 'Affected Systems' though?

The article is from may 2018. Based on the below note, it appears the issue only affects older systems.

Additional Information

This issue is fixed in factory preloads based on Windows 10 1803 (version 17134) and later.  Only factory preloads based on Windows 10 1709 (version 16299) had this issue. If the symptoms are not noticed, then it is not necessary to apply the solution.

It didn't fix the issue it still sounds like electrical static coming from the machine as in the first video in this thread. 

The fans & cpu are fine it's only the electrical noise that's a bother.

I have P52 with all latest drivers and software updates installed. EXACTLY the same noise! It's so annoying! Looking for a solution

Adding to this, I noticed little electric (just like my old computer's hdd reading sound) sound as well when I open programs like chrome.



Same to me! It mostly happens with Chrome!!! With Firefox it just appears occasionally... 

I also locate the noise and it seems like it goes from RAM slots under the keyboard

Mine had that as well. I disabled CPU power management in the BIOS and it went away.

Re: Thinkpad X1 Extreme weird noise / Fan Noise

Ive had this issue on a razer blade stealth. It is coil whine from either the cpu or ssd. you will need to hold a tube to your ear and figure out where exactly the sound is coming from. I have very faint hiss on my x1 extreme from my cpu if i put my ear to the keyboard but it is almost unnoticable. The is a higher chance of me getting a worse unit if i decide to get a new one. so do keep that in mind. However given what this thing costs i dont expect to have to deal with these issues.
