Lenovo G505s - Fan + Overheating

Hello!

 

My Lenovo Hackintosh has its fan almost always running, overheating sometimes. I have to manually fan it to keep it from overheating, though that doesn't help much. I turn on the A/C, fan the computer, and it still overheats.

 

This also happens when trying to install the Mavericks 1.9.1 update. It tells me "3 minutes remaining" under a progress bar and "Software Update". Then the fan accelerates and the computer shuts down immediately

 

 

This is not the situation in Linux/Windows/Unix. What can I do to get the fan to run normally/keep this thing from overheating?

 

Thanks!

Oh my word, I apologize for my, what is it, almost six-month later response... I swayed from OS X for a while, but now I am back.
 
Concerning the overheating, it is no longer an issue although I have AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext installed. I opened a sealed vent on the bottom of my laptop's case, which is directly below the fan. I think that is what solved the issue.
