Designed for esports, the machines in the Legion 5 Pro Series are equipped witha thorough cooling system. Lenovo has revised its ventilation system, to offer a larger area allowing the heat to escape. A copper block is located under the CPU and acts as a heat sink, while the blades of the new fans are up to 40% thinner than those of the previous generation, ensuring similar efficiency while limiting noise pollution. All this makes it possible to obtain the system Lenovo Legion Coldfront 4.0, which is making its debut in this line of devices.
