Dell G5 5505 hot while charging


I bought my brand new Dell G5 5505 and the fans are going on 100 percent while I am playing a game if the the AC is plugged in. The CPU and GPU is on about 82-85 degree of celsius both while playing a single game and the keyboard and the whole laptop is hot like a....

When I am playing without plugged in AC (only from the battery), than it works normal. Fans are working only minimal. CPU and GPU and the whole laptop is not hot.

I have updated all drivers.

Can somebody help me in that?

Thanks in advance.

Without Ac adapter, Battery is not capable to supply enough power to Processor and GPU thus machine runs slower than it can on AC adapter. This is why fans do not kick in


I think you are running on high-performance profile. 

You should try a cooler profile from AWCC or Dell power manager.
