Lenovo Legion Tower 5i: How’s it holding up? (Assessment from expertise)


Thanks you guys for watching immediately’s video! Inform me within the feedback if you would like me to proceed these “how’s it holding up?

What’s up everyone welcome again to tech nugget and immediately i will do my 5 month checkup on this laptop proper right here the lenovo legion tower 5 so yeah i’ve already had this laptop for like 5 months which is loopy to me i’ve discovered issues about this laptop some good some unhealthy

And immediately i will present you them on the finish of the video i will be telling you if this can be a whole lot or not and likewise simply to spice this laptop up somewhat bit extra i undoubtedly have a few of these um these rgb followers and rgb strip i’ve these

Tutorials linked within the description and shortly i will likely be placing in a greater cpu cooler proper there and i will put rgb ram covers on these so yep massive upgrades coming quickly so yeah keep tuned and let’s get into the video now initially i need to begin out

With the cons and these may look like they hope they outweigh the professionals however i guarantee you these cons are rather a lot smaller issues than all the professionals the professionals undoubtedly outweigh these closely so initially i feel we must always begin off with the noise the noise ranges they get a

Little larger typically this single fan tremendous the 1660 tremendous should not be a very scorching card however single fan designs are by no means actually nice and the cpu fan can be fairly wimpy seeking to hold the to maintain their good temperatures these do produce good temperatures typically they spin up

Actually quick and rattling does that get annoying typically it does not i feel it is the i feel it is the cpu fan that is making the excessive pitched buzzing noise and second of all of the ram it comes at 26 66 megahertz out of the field and that is 29 33 megahertz bear in mind 30 000

Megahertz no matter you need to go together with so i am fairly certain it may be clocked at 29.33 i do not know a lot about this motherboard is a b460 motherboard however there’s not a lot else on it on-line than that so yeah it is a it does not appear too unhealthy however yeah 2666 megahertz undoubtedly could be higher

Different issues is that this ps this energy provide is simply 400 watts and in a 900 construct i might have preferred to have no less than 500 550 watts however 400 watts is certainly sufficient for the system 1660 tremendous 10 400 f so yep 400 watts is ok

You’ll be able to truly match 20 60 in right here if you happen to needed to with that energy provide however yeah i’d simply reasonably it’s somewhat larger no less than 500 watts for a 900 construct and likewise the io is somewhat bit limiting as a result of solely two usb ports seem

One headphone jack within the energy button if you happen to go round again there’s solely there is a usb port has a usb c port 4 usb ports an ethernet jack and a few audio connectors down there and the graphics card is it is not too unhealthy i assume acquired dvi

Hdmi and displayport so you would have three displays however i am going to simply go together with two as a result of um this displayport and hdmi port are the one ones which might be actually price it at this level subsequent up is the case the case i am not gonna lie take a look at this this case

It sucks it sucks stick i i type of need to substitute the case like simply take all of the components from the system and simply slap it in a brand new case however that that is undoubtedly a video for the longer term if i truly do try this however first off is the truth that there’s

Completely no room within the again for cable administration i i do not know who considered that and i do not know the way they squeeze that facet panel on on the manufacturing facility as a result of i can not for the lifetime of me get that again on and i attempted to cable administration there isn’t any energy provide basement

There is not any room within the again and there isn’t any slide above the motherboard to route the cpu cable so it is simply on the highest of the case i i do not know i genuinely do not perceive who designed this case it is simply why why not put an influence provide basement

Why not put somewhat prime slot up there for the cpu cable why not give somewhat extra room on the pack lastly however not least is that this software program it is actually not one of the best i am not gonna lie i imply it will get the job performed however

I took off the entrance panel for this and the entrance panel has that gentle proper there caught in the midst of it so talking of which right here is the entrance panel that gentle proper in there it is speculated to go proper there nevertheless it’s truly i did not know what he might truly take

It out and that i unplugged it which it is plugged in proper round there within the backside of the motherboard and after that so i might come to the vantage software program the lighting it simply would not pop up it was it was gone and i used to be so confused as to the place the hell it went

However i simply i did not consider plugging that factor again in so trial and error i put i put it in and that i plugged it in and lo and behold it labored so now that is simply in there and i am unable to actually do a lot about it

As a result of if i do then i simply type of lose my rgb management and that will suck as a result of rgb equals fps everyone knows that so yep however that is truly it that is all of the cons i’ve discovered up to now about this method however let’s simply get into the stroking it off much more

Aka the professionals however first i benchmarked the 1660 tremendous infer mark so it type of serves as a noise take a look at and a um an precise take a look at so yep here is the scores and effectively this has been going for about 20 minutes now and as you possibly can see the temperatures i am

Fairly certain they’ve topped off at 78 i feel it’s going to go to love 80 max if you happen to let it go for like not sufficient hours however yeah it is decently quiet it is somewhat noisy getting round like 100 fps infer mark so yep i did the take a look at earlier acquired round 6k factors

So i am not likely that skilled with firmware so i am fairly certain that is respectable oh boy right here we go initially this worth the efficiency okay we’re in harsh instances proper now for laptop gaming it is by no means been a greater time to get into it nevertheless it’s by no means been a worse time

As a result of costs are by way of the roof if i had been to take this graphics card and promote it i might purchase an entire one other one in all these programs that’s loopy and i am truly type of pondering of doing that i need a totally different model of the 1660 tremendous so

I am pondering of simply promoting this one getting like an msi ventus model so yeah worth to efficiency 1660 tremendous i5 10 400 16 gigabytes two sticks of ram and a good quantity of storage nvme ssd one terabyte laborious drive this factor is close to unbeatable for the time being it’s insane how a lot you

Get for 900 {dollars} with this with a system different programs like vr latex which i want to remind you’ve got actually it is not their fault that they’ve to lift their costs it is cryptocurrency miners and all that however they’ve needed to increase their costs not this factor i feel this truly

Was round 800 as an alternative of 900 or possibly even 750. for the time being for proper now you possibly can’t actually beat this method by way of worth to efficiency second factor with the system is the case as a lot as i simply completely dunked throughout it or at

Least tried to it is acquired some respectable air movement truly so lately i did an experiment the place i took off this the entrance panel and i believed it’d make a giant distinction in thermals i believed they’d go like from 70 levels celsius to i do not know 10 levels celsius and freeze the cpu

And the system would die however that did not actually occur truly i feel i do not even assume there was a lot of a distinction it was additionally a noise take a look at and truly with out this with out the entrance panel on it was about three decibels noise right here which i assume that is sensible there’s much less

Much less plastic to hinder it that is extra of a noise distinction than a temperature distinction i actually i might reasonably have the entrance panel off as a result of rgb followers and it nonetheless is somewhat bit limiting so yeah that is simply fully open it is acquired nice airflow i simply want this gpu had a greater cooler

On it however we will repair the cpu cooler so yep nice airflow on this case oh and likewise did i point out that this factor has twin channel reminiscence that is proper however your i purchase energy cyber energy does not have that however yeah 900 you must get twin channel it

Helps gaming efficiency rather a lot i will do a video on it the place as an alternative of getting it in twin channel configuration i will do it with each sticks proper subsequent to one another so it is single channel however nonetheless the identical quantity simply to indicate you guys how a lot it

Really kneecaps the efficiency and with intel cpus it does not make as massive of a distinction than ryzen cpus nevertheless it nonetheless makes a distinction so yeah twin channel is certainly necessary if in case you have if you happen to can solely get eight gigabytes of ram in your system then please

Simply get two 4 gig sticks it sacrifices future upgradability a bit nevertheless it does not matter no matter you do twin channel it additionally has somewhat included wi-fi card which i am not likely certain too certain what it does however i in all probability ought to i feel it simply boosts speeds somewhat bit extra

It is fairly simple to improve taking off the entrance panel is fairly easy you simply take off each facet panels and there is these little clips there’s three of them on all sides you simply undo them and comes proper off you additionally must take that factor out nevertheless it’s fairly

Self-explanatory whenever you see it i feel you simply twist it and it simply pops out and also you additionally gotta go away it in there or else you possibly can’t management your rgb however yeah 400 watt energy provide as soon as once more it is not one of the best nevertheless it’s upgradable i used to be capable of put some followers

And a greater rgb strip in fairly simply and the ultimate two issues are as soon as once more i am gonna pull this up once more the facility provide as a lot as i already talked on this similar to the case i stated that very same factor with the case it is truly not too unhealthy as soon as once more 400

Watts come on 500 watts no less than however it’s an fsp unit and it’s 80 plus gold licensed so it should be fairly environment friendly i prefer it up to now it is not blown up on me but however within the two-year checkup about yeah like a yr and a half from now

Perhaps it is going to whereas i am filming the video so yep i am fairly happy with it up to now i am unsure if i will substitute it simply but however who is aware of and eventually the inventory lighting so this laptop comes with clearly that little um one rgb fan within the

Again which after all i switched it is truly like this it is acquired that little factor within the center i type of like this one higher often because it has extra fins and it has larger high quality rainbow impact for my part and it additionally has this one lighting strip within the prime and it is

Actually vivid truly so if we go to customise and it is solely on half brightness and it is it is fairly rattling vivid however the unhappy factor is it is just one colour so yeah it is simply white and so is it that so yep it is all proper it is fairly respectable some computer systems for this worth they do not

Even include lighting and you’ll simply flip it off if you wish to if you happen to don’t love that now it is darkish so yeah um i feel that is that just about wraps up this video please remark like and subscribe and i’ll see you guys within the subsequent one

  1. Update: I retract my statement on being able to run a 2060 on 400 watts with that cpu, I would suggest atleast 500 for a 2060 in this computer, and will make a video on how to install one. Stay tuned!

  2. Prices are so much better right now, just bought one of these at best buy for $999 for Black Friday. Comes with rtx 3060 and i7 12700, only 16gb ram and 256gb ssd tho, but there is 1tb hdd I guess.

  3. I don’t want to spend too much sooo I just want to upgrade the ram because I want to video edit, stream, and play games. Do u think it’ll be fine if I just upgrade the ram ?

  4. How the hell do I stop my HDMI from being the main default setting for audio!?!?

    Where the hell did my high definition/RealTek options go?!

    So my monitor is HDMI. I got Lenovo. Legion t5 tower desktop. for some reason at random points my computer will act up and only detect my monitor as the set default output for audio.

    Usually there would be high definition audio and or RealTek Audio as an option or even head phones if I were to plug it in

    Regular speakers aren't detected when connected to the back of the tower.
    Head phones are detect on the back or top of tower.

    Both of those aren't an option.
    And I can't search.
    At this point I would just plug my head phones in from the top of the tower and usually I could just go right ahead and play games.

    I've tried updating audio drivers, resetting, nothing pops up besides the monitor on the sound devices.

    I've tried uninstalling or redownloading realtek.
    It says installed but never shows up.

    This computer cost me like $900 and I haven't been able to fucking enjoy it once.

    All I do is game literally no porn lol literally just to play steam,ps, or Xbox.

  5. hey there great vid , em just a quick question , I looking at getting on of these with an aftermarket 3060ti, do you feel /w the stock fans and without the front over that the air flow cooling is sufficient in general , how does it perform @ higher refresh rates e.g 144hz with high settings ? have you tried doom eternal ?

    many kind thanks

  6. Hey! Can this handle streaming or recording videos for games such as life is strange, gta, fall guys, and etc… I’m getting the legion tower 5 and I wanted to know how much it can handle on what settings before I completely buy it!
