    Are there any instructions to remove the whitelist, modify the BIOS to install a non-lenovo approved wireless card?

    I only found information on the S10 and other thinkpad laptops

    Well I got a RAM upgrade from 4GB to 8GB and it makes a noticeable difference in BF3. Also got the Cooler Master Notepal U2 cooler which is awesome. I play BF3 with most settings High and a couple Ultra with Shadows on Low, AA off and HBAO/SSAO off. Runs average of 30+ fps.

    My current laptop has a 15" 1280x800 screen, and the resolution just doesn't cut it for multitasking, so that's why I wanted a higher res screen. If it's not possible to have both the upgraded screen and the webcam/microphone, then I think I'll go with a different computer. Thanks for the info!

    Hi mdnoor,

    This sounds like an overheating issue at first glance. Are the games you are playing require a heavy system loan? When the computer goes through Windows Experience Index testing, it uses 100% of processor capacity so it may be that it will overheat during full load, but your game is not needing enough processor usage to overheat.

    Is the bottom of the computer hot when you are testing? That may be another indication. For a more factual approach, download SpeedFan and watch the temperatures as you are gaming or running windows experience testing. Report back what your peak temperatures for your GPU and CPU cores are.

    Let me know if you need me to explain anything else and good luck!

    Try this link here: http://www.almico.com/speedfan445.exe

    The GPU temperature doesn't seem that high but I am still not convinced that the CPU isn't overheating and hitting the kill switch on the laptop. The max CPU temperature is typically around 100 celcius so if it climbs above that, it may turn off your machine.

    See what temperatures you get and let us know. Other than that mdnoor, you may have to call Lenovo to get it repaired.

    I asked a while back about the optimal settings for multiplayer in bf3 for the y570 but i did not find exactly what I was looking for. So you manage to run the game in mutliplayer with a consistent 30+ fps on high settings? Is that smooth enough for multiplayer? I am trying to find the smoothest + highest quality settings i can find for bf3 :)

    I have updated my video drivers to the latest. I am not sure I get that high fps.

    Hey guys, How often should I apply new thermal compound on the CPU? I've owned a Y570 (i5 version) for 3 months now, every time I play games, CPU temp goes up to 80-85 degree. Is that too high? should I put on some arctic silver?
