I just got my x201 for several days. The fan's noise seems unbearable. Especially in the late night, It was running all the time, even if I didn't run anything. I ran the power setting and set the fan to reduce noise. But it doesn't seem to work..
Any other one has the same problem?

That's interesting - mine has the 500GB 7200RPM HDD and hardly makes any noise at all - much less than my last two laptops. Of course it's all relative - what I consider quiet may be considered noisy by another.

I found the reason now. I updated my BIOS to 1.15, then the fan's noise increased dramatically. After I reflashed back to 1.14. It became much better.
It is strange. Seems Lenovo increase the default fan's speed in 1.15
Thank you, Guys.
