But that doesn't mean that you cannot have the option at all. After the change, there was no more PLT. Thx, I'll contact lenovo customer service to make sure if it violates warranty before repasting. I've even posted a screenshot of the same. By how much values i can do it. In the post I didn't mean tweaking the in game graphics settings. But for me, sometimes playing something like BF5 which is more CPU having and just loves fast single core performance..... Well, The laptop is just gonna be hot I guess if I want good frames lol. My laptop can only get around 3.5-3.65 GHz at the 60W mark. (17 inch version) While the machine is pretty cool and quiet during daily use (including gaming), my CPU temperatures during both combined CPU/GPU stress test and CPU stress test seem to be higher than they should be, when looking at reviews and reports from people with this model. There're idle processes in the background but all of them are system required, like killer wifi service, Corsair iCue service(which controls RGB) etc. Temperature is unfortunately of no difference. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts, https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/cpu-always-running-at-max-clockspeed-on-balanced-setting.3106577/. Lenovo is one of them. I don't like playing games with my temperatures sitting at 90c+. I had the same problem with it maxing out the speed on all cores at all times. The y740 chassis is very capable of dissipating heat and maintaining very decent temperatures under load with no throttling but lenovo has intentionally made it difficult for the user to get significantly better temps, by removing the max fan speed option through bios updates. Most of that, especially in regards to the cpu, unfortunately stays locked away from the user and the potential is not well reflected in the performance, as long as you don't downgrade the bios. I meant performance tuning. There's a lot to talk about this laptop and you can feel free to ask me anything in the comments below but since this isn't a review post and there are already sufficient resources online talking about the general stuff, I'll try to stick to the things that are directly relevant to the performance of the machine. my 9750H idles at around 45 - 50C (and does not think twice about spiking upto like 60C for even the smallest of loads). The score increased to 3080 average (highest score: 3135)! Free 2-day shipping. Most other i7-9750H SKUs will be limited at only 45 Ws and won’t benefit from a similar thermal design, thus won’t be able to hit this kind of scores, and will fare closer to the average i7-8750H model. 1 year ago I had the same problem with it maxing out the speed on all cores at all times. But the difference in temps is huge. I mean, my laptop is less powerful than yours, it's a 1660 ti with a i5 9330h, but this little laptop just based on my thoughts and testings, I'd say it's more powerful than a PS4 Pro.... Slightly weaker than my X. Also check if there are any idle processes in the background, Thx for the advice. But lenovo laptops seem to suffer from that the most. BTW does lenovo have chat support? Undervolt Your CPU Using Throttlestop. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast, More posts from the GamingLaptops community. As I downgraded my bios to 1.03, with the cpu undervolt and gpu overclock applied, I got an average fps of 87. If I'm not wrong, the PL1 and PL2 are 60W and 90W for the y540 (for cpu only load), which is the same as y740 running on older bios. The thermals on it were really bad when I got it (around 90C at full load). )If you've purchased the 9th gen variant like me, most probably you never had the max fan option to begin with. But absolutely thrashes the base PS4. Free 2-day shipping. Thanks. https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds506181, that's for the y740 ICH/ICHg which is the 8th gen processor variant. thanks for sharing, my y740 will come next week, Doesn’t i take a mistake or something, but the bios in lenovo is 1.10 version. Y740 is not one of the laptops with mediocre/bad thermal designs. This is because of a higher TDP during cpu only load in bios 1.06 (70W long power max) compared to 1.03 (60W long power max). Try playing games or running benchmark without undervolt, with undervolt with turbo ratio 40/40/40/39, with undervolt with turbo 32/32/32/32. I've seen a lot of discussions online about the max fan option being removed from the laptop earlier this year and yeah it sucks and I really hope Lenovo brings back the choice through a future update but at this point, considering their silence on the matter, I don't expect much.But there's a couple of things I'd like to make clear.
