Did you see the model number is Y545. Y545 has the worst thermal performance in the Lenovo Y series gaming laptops (Y740, Y540 and Y545) and it throttles both in CPU and GPU performance like hell. The performance of laptop does not just depend on the internal components, it depends on the thermal performance mainly. Check any YouTube reviews for Y545 and you will find that out.

IDK if they implemented max fan control yet.

But as soon as they do, pretty much all 9750 + 1660ti setups will perform the same.

Got this a month and a some change ago. Pretty solid machine. Screen could be way brighter though. At max it feels like what one would set it to for middle of the range.

We understand 70-90C is common for laptops. HOWEVER cpus really don't like heat. and everything around the mobo doesn't like heat.

The lower the heat, the better the durability, heat breaks alot of things. even if the laptop will run in the meantime with no visible effect.

70 is alot better than 80 or 90.

With undervolting I have 65-70'c at max. Vent alone is not going to save your problem, it's better to decrease heat emission in the source

that's not peak load. to get 9750 in that range you need liquid metal + max fan.

Just wanted to add that I've purchased two different Lenovo gaming laptops in the last 3 years and both fell apart due to poor build quality issues. The hinge issue on the Y50 (for which Lenovo took no responsibility despite it being a problem of epidemic proportions) remains one of the great nightmares of my life.

I can confirm Lenovo laptops have AWFUL thermals out of the box, but this is easily fixed by doing the following: undervolting the CPU by using Throttlestop, buying an external cooling pad, and reapplying a high quality thermal paste to the CPU. I was getting awful thermal throttling while playing Overwatch (huge FPS drops during team fights with CPU running at 100 degrees C) but now I can power my external 165hz monitor at full FPS while keeping CPU temperature at around 90. Judging from numerous reviews and Slickdeal threads, it seems that Lenovo uses some cheap thermal paste for its CPU heat sink, but this is a cheap and easy fix.

I bought this laptop a month ago, and returned it. Many issues, all well known and left unresolved by Lenovo. Crackling audio (26 pages of people complaining about this on the forms in one thread, there are several), pinched screen causing bleaching at the edges, and squealing capacitors when charging. Those are just the issues I had with my specific laptop. I would avoid this model at the minimum. I could have lived with the squealing charger, but the audio issues and the screen that was bleached out so badly I couldn't see my hud in dark environments... hard pass.
