The inclusion of liquid cooling should have been the perfect ingredient for a bulky laptop, however, the Legion 9i measures to be 18.9mm wide. That is less than 2 centimeters, which is an astonishing feat.

Lenovo says that the cooling system comes into play when the temperatures exceed 84*C. This means that the liquid pump will not be activated when the system is under light loads. Alongside the liquid cooler, the Legion 9i is equipped with 3x fans with adequate space for 2x M.2 SSDs, and 2x DDR5 DIMM slots.
