Vostro 5481 - Heating and fan noise issue

Does anyone experiencing heavy fan noise and extreme thermal issues "frequently" in new Dell Vostro 5481?

Noticed the fan noise even under using laptop for domestic purpose like working on Microsoft office and YouTube.  I feel it shouldn't be any issue with those programs for the cause. Kindly help with your suggestions.

Specification: 128GB SSD / 1TB HDD 4GB RAM Laptop is well placed for ventilation

On my Vostro 5481's Dell Power Manager app in the left there are not "thermal management" and "battery extender" tabs?

I just opened my new Vostro 5481 an hour ago and the first thing I noticed was the fan noise during the setup process.

Is this how it's supposed to be ? If that's the case, I don't think I bought the right product.

I had the same feeling wen I bought 6 months back, turn off the turbo boost in BIOS settings and everything should be fine.

This helped me too, computer fan is not turned on that often, however computer seems to be noticeably slower.
