Y500 Overheating?

Recommended Posts

During normal wildstar gameplay my CPU and both GPU's reach 90+ degrees C. This seems abnormally hot to me. Does anyone else have these hot temperatures? Will disabling hyperthreading have a significant effect in cooling down my cpu during load?

Yes, disabling hyperthreading will probably cool down the CPU and, by extension, your main GPU because they share the same heatsink/fan. How much of a difference it makes for these notebook CPU's, though, i don't know. I know it makes a significant difference on my 45nm i7-930 when overclocking, but then again the Nehalem processors definitely ran hot compared to successor chips.

So i got a notebook cooler and turned hyperthreading off and am now getting steady temps around 80C. However the processor is not turbo boosting at all its staying at its stock 2.4 GHz speed. Using throttlestop i can make it go faster but the temps rise to 90C again. Should i re-do the thermal paste on the CPU?

Mine usually stayes around 65~70 while gaming...

My past laptop tended to increase load temperature as time passed.

Consider putting new thermal paste AND cooling pad.

I never break 75C no matter what I play, if mine was breaking 90 I'd consider adding some different thermal paste or perhaps contacting lenovo?

I recommend you buying the Thermaltake massive 23 cooling pad, I have it, and when I play on my Y500 I don't get temps beyond 70C. I think it costs 30 bucks on amazon.

Yep, a Cooling Pad changes everything. I do not have it running all the time. The space between the Laptop and Ground leads to a lower temperature and quiet fans in Office Mode. When it comes to serious Gaming my Y500 does not get hotter than 75 °C.

I use the Thermaltake Massive 23LX. It fits all 15.6" Notebooks.

Have you tried blowing out the dust from the fan exhaust? I usually do this once every month or so on all of my machines.

I recommend dusting your computer. My temperatures dropped 5-8C after i did that. My max temperatures during benchmarks are something around 80-85.

In my case the normal temperature is 50 degrees, when I render HD video in 1080 with sony vegas, reaches 78 or 85 degrees.

Maybe you have to check the status of your physical ventulador laptop.

Consider a chiller base with a pair of fans.:69:

still possible in addition to the above, to try to adapt the cooler (as in automatic cleaning), the temperature falls down 5_10 extent, but a lot of noise  :{

open it up and clear the dust in the fan , the dust may spoil the aerodynamic of the fan

No that's not normal. I have a y410p with 755m SLI and my max temperatures with Furmark are 66C and 69C respectively. During normal gaming my GPUs are usually in the high 50s to mid 60s and the CPU stays in the mid 60s. 

 

I recommend that you dust, and repaste both GPUs and the CPU, along with the spacer mod and unshrouded fan mod. I've done all of those except the unshrouded fan mod. Then I recommend undervolting and using ideafan. My GPUs are undervolted by -112.5mV at stock clocks and -37.5mV with a +100MHz core overclock. You'll have to test your GPUs to see what undervolt is stable for you. Next pick up a cooling pad, preferably one that improves the laptops air flow (leaves a gap between the laptop and the surface it is resting on). For that purpose I picked up a Coolermaster U2, but even just propping up the back of the laptop helps tremendously. Last, keep the room temperature as low as possible. There's a reason why computer labs are always chilly compared to the other parts of a building.

Check if your heatsink is not defected, i got few laptops with that problem and the problem was that heat from cpu or gpu stuck in the middle of the way to radiator.

3 years since i bought it , i have never changed the thermal paste but i never break the 75 C barrier even through hours of autocad civil 3d 2016 rendering

I experienced similar problems with a different laptop. Kept overheating during normal use. Opened it up and the fan was nearly clogged with dust. Cleaned it up and now runs cool!

Like others I would recommend replacing the cooling paste with some silver cooling paste and also getting a cooling pad. I had my Y500 for about 2 years and it never goes beyond 75c, I am also considering redoing the cooling paste on mine too just as part of doing maintenance on it since it is a bit old.

Mine went overheat due to nvidia driver issue.  You should uninstall the whole nvidia driver, then reinstall the latest version.

The only time mine has over heated was due to a bit of buildup on the inside of the radiator. Ran a little bit of water through it, let it dry and it's back down to low temps.

I used a can of compressed air to blow out every single part of the laptop(took the back off too). Also got a Coolermaster SF-17 cooling pad and it probably helps a few degrees.

      i want to ask two favours and a question from this community ..
       
      1.) Can someone mod my 940 mx to increase the target temperature and allow higher overclocking than 135hzband voltage control
       
      2.) Allowing my i5 7200U to be undervolted to reduce overall heat 
       
      The question : I repasted my gpu and cpu cleaned it thoroughly, made sure twice everything is connected properly, use a cooling pad and yet the upper portion of my chasis above f1-f12 keys is so hot that i can roast peanuts on it. 
       
      (if i left out any info or missed something please reply i would really love to have a page that has everything for people who have this laptop specifically for light gaming.)

      Hi,
       
      I've recently got my hands on an M17x R4 Alienware Laptop from 2013 which I love. I've replaced the screen, keyboard, RAM, and hard drive to make it into a fully modern laptop. However, I'm currently waiting on a replacement for the 680m GPU with a 980m from ebay. My question for you all is, do I need to do anything with the BIOS to make this 980m work? Is there a way to prevent the laptop from using Intel HD Graphics with Optimus? I think the Intel HD Graphics on this laptop are currently broken as I see static-looking dots flash on the screen. (See image below for example). My theory is that because Intel HD Graphics with Optimus is still in-use while in-game, the dots are being caused by it.
       
      Thanks for any help in advance.
       
      - M

      Hello guys so i bought a used alienware m17x r3 with hd 6870m on it, so when i was trying to boot well it goes to the windows 7 loading screen that says starting windows after that the screen turns white and goes to bsod saying atikmpag.sys
       
      also i attempt to switch my integrated gpu to my discrete card ( hd6870m)  and i wont switch at all 
       
      Responses are highly appreciated 
      Thank you in advance

      Hi everyone,
      i'm writing this post to ask you if someone is interested about making for me an overclocked gpu vbios.
      I have a Dell M6700 with a NVIDIA K3000M and i' m kinda good with it but i m searching about getting more performance from it.
      So basically i want to have a 850 Mhz OC vbios rom and a 950 Mhz OC vbios rom, is there anyone that can do this for me please ?
      I tried using kepler vbios tweaker but i remains stuck at 548.9 Mhz without going up and i can t figure how to do it.
      I'll attach my VBIOS BACKUP CLEAR COPY.
       
      PS: Tech Inferno seems to have upload problems now so if you want the rom image contact me pls asap

      Hello everyone! I am looking for an answer to a problem I cannot find a solution to ... I purchased an Amd wx 4150 MXM GPU module su e bay to upgrade my HP 8570W Mobile Workstation which is currently equipped with a Fire Pro M4000. Once the new GPU has been installed, the PC screen no longer turns on but works only with external monitors connected via the docking station. The same happens once the drivers are updated! If I put the old card back on, the integrated monitor starts working again ... How can I fix it?
