Re: X61s fan failing. Should I replace it myself?

My fan was making a lot of noice as well, took the thinkpad apart twice, first time to remove a thick layer of dust between the fan and copper vents, and put a drop of oil in the fan and applied AS5. Sadly the fan got noisy again after 2 months. called up lenovo and they sent me a new fan, with new ...

Thought I would share my impressions as I found it very difficult to find reviews on lenovo desktops. Found the m57p in the lenovo outlet "new" sec...

my x61 hits 86C when i run prime95, then the fan kicks up, usually maintaining 80C.

Normal web browsing...its at 32C at the moment. but i suspect that value would fluctuate depending on the ambient temp.

sbell, about your freezing problem, I had the exact same problem and i thought the laptop was useless. Uninstall turbo memory software and driver. Windows will ask to reinstall, best to deny. See if that helps. My laptop has not frozen once since removing the turbomemory features. However lenovo upd...

Have you solved that issue yet? I have done all lenovo and windows updates, yet still have this problem. I have n...

Well it seems the booting error was fixed with a bcd patch update from lenovo.

I have done another clean install, and checking the cpu speed under properties of my computer reveals it is still running at 2ghz. even with the processor set to lowest speed

Anyone else experiencing similar problems?

x61 and nhc

Hi all, Recieved my x61 recently, and have installed nhc as i have become used to seeing temp and cpu speed. Cpu speed seems to be fixed at 2ghz..sometimes 1.98 or so.
