Lenovo engineers had to make some tweaks to the cooling systems on the ThinkPad X1 Extreme, with not one but three new completely cooling systems for the laptop. There's new hybrid cooling systems that have traditional heat pipes, joined by a large vapor chamber that will keep the GPU running as cool as possible.

The keyboard intake also increases cool air flow across the fans, while keeping spill resistance in check -- there's a dual bypass design that also has air flowing across the top and bottom of the cooling system that improves thermal insulation. Lenovo has made some great tweaks to the thermal design on the new ThinkPad X1 Extreme laptop.
