Re: Thinkpad X1 Yoga Fan Constantly Running

2017-07-29, 5:30 AM

Well,

1) I am an executive, so the biggest tasks I run are a couple of big excel files and ppts open at the same time - not really the thing that eats processor capacity

2) I prefer a slightly lower performance and longer life than a processor that is burnt because of running above its maximum speed.

Lenovo might want to offer a patch ensuring that processors do not run above their design frequency (at least in a standard configuration).

I followed another posting suggestions on my new X1 Yoga gen 2, and changed the maximum processor state on "Plugged in" from 100% to 99%.  This now keeps my fan from running constantly when plugged in (fingers crossed).  I did this:

 

  1. Right-click on battery icon
  2. Left-click on "Power options"
  3. Left-click on "Change plan settings"
  4. Left-click on "Change advanced power settings"
  5. Scroll down to "Processor power management"
  6. Expand "Processor power management" by selecting the "+"
  7. Expand "Maximum processor state"
  8. Change value for "Plugged in" from "100%" to "99%"
  9. Select "OK"

So far my laptop's quiet...

I just purchased a X1 Yoga 2nd Gen and I'm having lots of fan noise. It will crank up with just one web browser open. I'm all updated with the BIOS etc. Does anyone have a fix? I'd hate to return the machine, but this level of fan does not seem right.

Reply to my own earlier message - My fan issue got fixed when I went through the process of installing all the latest Windows 10 updated. Not all of this happened automatically - I had to keep going back into the Windows Update and scan/start again. This included multiple restarts and a few failed updates from Microsoft. Eventually when all was finished and all the Lenovo updates (required and recommended) complete, the X1 Yoga works without the fan running almost all the time. I was able to set the power management to default settings again.

I have all the latest Lenovo Updates and Windows 10 updates.  I have also reset power management to defaults, but absolutely no improvement.  The fan is running constantly even if most of the time at low RPM.  This is really disappointing.

I followed ThinkBox's order - Clean (out of the box) Windows... then Lenovo updates via Companion app - including supplemental/not required options... then pushed through the many Windows Updates in System/Updates... the last step took most of the day and many failed installations. Before this, I did change the power settings (see earlier in the thread) and this helps.
