Lenovo Ideapad Y580- Information Thread - Page 3

post #21 of 31
AMD has a long way though. There are still lots of people picking Nivida simply because they either got toasted by AMD's driver bugs or were frightened away.

I grabbed a refurb Y580 for $647 ($692 after tax) from Lenovo. Only problem is heating up from the HDD. I HIGHLY recommend moving it to the optical slot. thumb.gif



Edit: (and yes, everybody's thinkin it so I'll just say it, what the heck were the engineers thinking when they stuck a 660m, 3630qm, and HDD right next to each other??? I can't think of a better way to fry a hdd and heat up the cpu/gpu all at the same time?)

B: Use optical drive/Blu Ray as external USB 3.0 instead when i need it
C Cooling options to put in the HDD Bay fan ? possibly

A) Fleabay, search optical to hdd caddy
B) Newegg / any tech site, and I'm sure fleabay has em too
C) Only option I can see here is getting an external cooler, which are stupid IMO, because I use a laptop on the go, and I'm not gonna lug around an external cooler

I recall Google posted a HDD failure chart after running in certain temperature ranges. It turned out that HDDs are typically insensitive to temperature unless if it's above/below its absolute operating temperature.

Either way.. It's heating up the cpu and gpu more w/ the hdd right there... and the temps w/ the hdd get close to absolute operating temps.. danger.



Granted this is prime and furmark running at the same time...

CPU = 94c
GPU = 83c
HDD = 64c

(Full Y580 heat thread here)

I'm not saying don't buy the laptop... I have it and love it! I just recommend moving the hdd. You could even throw in a ssd in the main hdd slot and I'm sure it'd be fine.

I'm not suggesting leaving the hdd in its spot will equal instant failure. I'm suggesting it could fail right after the warranty is up. Not that hdd's are super expensive... But I usually have school stuff on my drive. I'd rather not lose it.

That is pretty interesting...
I read through that thread and will be linking it in the post along with that photo of yours
I know i will not see performance loss if i switch the drive over to the ODD bay instead..
I just have to save up for a new ssd most likely a samsung 840 pro higher end...

just wondering its worth even throwing anything in there because it will be even more space filled with the odd and the hddbay full along with the msata

thanks for showing the scores man thats awesome for heat biggrin.gif hah

im still trying to figure out weather this centrino n6300 will work gotta just put it in and test it out for dual band biggrin.gif

then do a tear down to see about thermal paste and weather it is good or bad...(afraid its going to most likely be bad)

That's not my testing.. Not my pic either.. It's in the thread I posted.

Edit: Also, I forgot to post.. I downloaded the newest NVIDIA drivers off their website and I was having problems w/ 116 BSOD's. I opened up the NVIDIA control settings and set the 660m to default when 3d apps are run, and also had to set it to default using physx. I'm pretty sure this wouldn't be an issue if I were using lenovo drivers... but I didn't wanna use their stuff.

Alright again i will bring this part up

Techinferno user
Svl7 has been working on lenovo y580 bios unlocked and whitelist bios hacks for awhile and i have to say its pretty cool to see such a community trying to figure out what other issues there are with this laptop...
The top two being heat and wireless NIC

Lenovo has decided to "lock" there bios and minimize what users are able to do with settings for the system...
I am very dissapointed by this because well i have a bios version that is well ahead of what has been hacked...

This is the thread you can follow if your wanting to get say other network cards to run on this system..they black listed so many cards specially dualband which im really wanting to take control of...

http://forum.techinferno.com/lenovo-ibm/2260-lenovo-y580-y480-unlocked-bios-versions.html

it is at 2.06 unlocked with whitelist for other network cards...

BUT my computer shipped with bios 8.01 which is ahead and possibly will not be hacked which tons of users are annoyed by because well this computer is very nice and lenovos move to lock out the bios along with supported cards and such is just plain nuts...

Thoughts share em..
