@pepo930 - you can edit the DSDT.dsl file to modify the logic - change from 0x7 (max) to something like 0x1 or whatever speed level you like - 0x1 to 0x7 (low to high). search for ThinkVantage and it will take you to the spot.
@veer - search this thread for windows -- but don't make a NTFS partition with disk utilty since it will turn the PBMR into MBR and mess up UEFI boot for Win7 or Win10. I use gpt to make an NTFS partition. or use windows to format the space.
@jus12 - not sure what happened? so I take it this panic was not a 1 time thing? i moved on to the betas right a way I'm on 10.12.1beta2 ...
battery/power consumption topic - i don't know of a tool in OSX to reset a battery. i ran the Lenovo Settings tool downloaded from the Windows Store on Windows 10 to reset my battery. more than about 10 idle power means something is running and using power. run activity monitor or top on the command line to see what is running. cpu at 98% or 99% idle is really idle.
