X1 Extreme Gen 2 Right Fan Problem

2020-05-20, 2:16 AM

Running stress tests, I noticed that the fan on the right of my X1E2 isn't ramping up like the fan on the left is, even though the CPU is at 100% load and above 90C. The right fan is spinning but at a speed like there's no load on the system. If you have an X1E2, please run a stress test/benchmark and let me know if the fan on the right is increasing in speed like it should. If you know a fix, please let me know as well. I've just updated to BIOS 1.31, but I'm not sure if that's the culprit.

UPDATE: BIOS 1.31 is the problem. For some reason, the fan profile was changed such that the right fan maxes out at ~3200 RPM, down from the maximum speed of ~4400 RPM from before.

Lenovo drivers' quality control is having serious trouble.

Can you roll back the BIOS to previous version? If so, HOW?

@erikdg You first have to enable rolling back in the BIOS menu. Then, if you have the executable for an older BIOS version, run it normally.

I have the same problem with fan running always. Sometimes getting really loud and disturbing. Using X1 Yoga G2.
