This problem (assuming it's a problem and not a feature) has been there since the laptop was released.
Several BIOS and driver version later and nothing has changed.

Dell doesn't care much. Technical support is a joke and nobody is moderating/supervising these forums.

Yes, you are right. The fan speed problem happens when plugging anything to the thunderbolt port (I tested with not only TB15 dock, but also USB-C ethernet adapter; other people also reported fan noise problem when plugging USB-C to HDMI/VGA/USB3/Ethernet adaper to XPS 15 9550), even without really using these plugged devices.

I think it is really a problem of the thunberbolt 3 USB-C port! Hope that Dell will have answer/solution to this problem soon.

Nope. Fans permanently at 3200 RPM even when the laptop is essentially cold.
This alone makes me not want to use the TB15.

And BTW, it's not just the TB15. Anything that you connect to the USB-C port (like a simple memory stick) and the fans will kick in).

I have Precision 5510, and TB15. After plugging the TB15 dock (without any other devices attached to the dock) to the laptop, the fan is switched on strongly, and it is really noisy. Is there anyway to get rid of this?

Thanks

XPS 15 9550 & TB15 here.

Mine seems to be (mostly) stable with audio, Ethernet, keyboard, mouse and two external HDDs.  What trips my TB15 up is when I connect to an external display, first with DP, then with a brand new mDP cable.  Disconnects and hangs after that.

I have followed all the instructions for the TB15 with a XPS 13 9350 (Win10 64-bit)  and I get disconnects on USB mouse and keyboard still.  The disconnects happen every 60-90 seconds.  I have tried all the USB ports with multiple keyboards and mice that work fine when plugged directly into the laptop.

USB thumb drives seem to work fine though.  I was able to transfer files to and from several thumb drives without interruption.

Ethernet seem to be working just fine.

HDMI and Displayport seem to be working fine.  I have yet to try the mini-displayport and vga.

This used to be this thread.

The current list of drivers/firmwares (and the installation sequence), as posted by Brian above, doesn't resolve the issue: devices connected to the dock (monitors, LAN, mouse, keyboard etc.) frequently and randomly disconnecting.  

Most (if not all) customers are still unable to get the docking station to work.

Either the dock is flawed (overheating) or the thunderbolt driver/firmware is unstable and needs updates.

 Unfortunately I see no updates to firmware or drivers from what I already have for the TB15 and my XPS 15 9550. I have experienced issues with the Realtek USB GBE Ethernet Controller Driver (generating BSOD's) and the mini-Displayport connection from the TB15 to an external monitor (screen blanks out). Time is running out for me. I will be forced to return my TB15 this week.
