Turbo boost safe temps?

Recommended Posts

I have a Y510p with 4700mq.

I'm trying to do some video encoding but I want it to go faster. I'm trying to force turbo on when encoding and I need to know what are the safe temperature limits because I'm reaching around 90c on a haswell at 3 gigahertz.

If someone could tell me how to change the fan speed, it would be a lot easier.

According to someone else in the forums, you can use Intel XTU to lower the voltage of your CPU which will let it run cooler. The only downside of lowering the voltage too much is instability but no damage will be done.

People are far too delicate with their hardware, there's a reason Intel built in automatic throttling at around the 100c mark, unless you hit that I wouldn't worry.

SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer

Try this, not sure about your model, but you can use this, also boot in to bios setup see if there are any fan settings there (doubt it as it is a laptop).

90c is Fine if you are doing something for limited time, however try to keep it below 80c.

CWhat about the unlocked bios? Does anyone know if there are fan speed settings in it?

I don't believe it is possible to change the fan speeds manually, even with a modded bios. I've looked into it myself.

I didnt see any fan settings in there, it is more then likely controlled onboard. And the whole to delicate with your hardware. I mind you that 100c is when it shuts down, THESE chips are not met to run continuously at 90c+. Check out my mod rigs at evga, and the number of times I have overclocked. I assure you those little tiny circuits take a beating when they get anywhere near 100c.

Nope it's not possible to change the fanspeed.

I found out that the Lenovo dust removal featre actually let the fan spin faster then when I'm gaming (when the CPU reaches 98°C)

The Cpu throttles down if it reaches 98°C so I think you're safe if you stay below that temp.
