Hello! Its my first day with Dell 7559 (core i7, 1080p). However, I can smell a burning like smell when sniffing from close. Everything else seems to be working fine. CPU temperature is around 43C-50C with 7-8 chrome tabs opened. I am far away from US, should I be worried about this smell or it is expected to go away on its own?
Any smoke noticed?
Don't use the system, turn it off and take it to the local shop to inquire or if you are comfortable try opening the system and check. Refer the manuals http://dell.to/29fOv6g.
Let me know if you have any queries.
No, smoke is not there. The smell is reduced now.
However the system gets much hot while doing common task (Opening Photoshop CC using internal graphics makes it warm after 5-10 minutes). Keyboard gets uncomfortable to use under minor stressful work (Its sad because my previous core-i3 could do all these without showing a hint of warming up). I watched the temperature using HWInfo64 and the CPU core temperature maxed out at 92C. I stopped Intel boost but setting processors usage's max limit to 97% (using power plan) and the temperatures are dropped to ~80C, yet it still stays warm under slightly stressful work and the average idle temperature stays around 45C.
