I received my new ThinkPad X1 Yoga yesterday and the fan is constantly on and the bottom of the laptop is warm. Being a brand new laptop I am surprised at the amount of noise and can't understand why it is constantly going?
So far I am very concerned and wondering if I should return it?
Anyone else have any similiar issues and if so, any way to fix it?
Thank-you in advance,

Same issue- The CPU fan on my X1 Yoga used to be on either max power or off all the time when plugged in, but a recent BIOS update (mostly) fixed this issue. The fan is still on most of the time, though at a lower speed, when the computer is idle or doing minimal work (i.e. one or two Chrome windows open). Could anyone help?
I am hesitant with turning off Turbo Boost because of the performance implications. Also, I'm not sure how much that would help: I have a ThinkPad X230 Tablet that I've used without fan problems/fan noise. I understand that the X230 Tablet is a fatter computer with more airflow, but this amount of fan noise is unacceptable for even an Ultrabook, especially given the $2000 price tag.

I've also just received my X1 yoga a few days ago and have noticed the same. The fan seems to run at full spped most of the time. It will switch off if I close down everything but as soon as I even open a web browser the fan kicks in.
What's the best way to disable turbo boost?

I'm running windows 10 so don't have any power management app. I do have the lenovo settings app but there is no option to disable turbo boost. I also tried to lower the maximum porocessor state from 100% to 99%, 90% but the cpu is still using turbo boost.

My fan is constantly on whilst using Word and Excel for very light work...
...didn't experience this with my 3rd gen X1 Carbon.
A little concerned.
(love it otherwise!)

I'm really shocked Lenovo hasn't responded to this X1 Yoga fan problem. I've been on the fence about buying one of these but I might decide not to since there doesn't seem to be any answer to this problem (besides disabling the turbo boost, but I'm not sure how to disable it in Windows 7).
It seems like the majority of people I've seen purchase an X1 Yoga has complained about the fan problem
