Re: X60 super HOT 95C grade !!!

Please try some compressed air and see if your vents are clogged with dust.

Sometime 6 months are enaugh to clogg the vents.


Have you run your X60 on a desk so that the vents are free to circulate fresh air?

Re: X60 super HOT 95C grade !!!

Hello Silent01


There are reports that X60 machines did get hot in the palmrest and this is due to lack of airflow inside the machine itself. The components do get rather hot (CPU, GPU/video, etc).


There are two ways of dealing with the heat problem:


1) Check your BIOS setting to check the thermal management setting.  Check under "Config" then choose "power" ... then under "adaptive thermal management". You can change the values there for the fan settings. 


2) Lower the CPU cycle. The longer the CPU runs at full strength (even when not required), the hotter it will get over time. In order to throttle the CPU (make the CPU work only as fast as it needs to, slowing down when not needed), you can install and use a free utility called RMClock - I've wrote a quick tutorial with screenshots on how to use it  Tutorial available HERE... By using this utility, you can reduce the amount of heat the CPU generates by controlling the speed of the CPU.



 Unfortunately, the X60 did not come preconfigured to hold a second fan. You will find the information on the X60, including all parts and components in the "hardware maintenance manual" (PDF document english)


Hope this helps!
