Fans start spinning fast with certain Chrome tabs. How to keep fans quiet?

I have both an older XPS 9343 and 9350 i7 8GB and one thing that always annoyed me is how fast the fans start spinning. 

For example, when I open certain chrome tabs like Yahoo Finance or investing.com that also play an embedded video, the fans start to spin very quickly and loud. 

I already went in the Windows 10 advanced power settings and set "maximum processor state" to 90% and "system cooling" on passive. 

What else can I do to keep those fans more quiet? Any tips or tricks that help? I have my XPS plugged in most of the time by the way in case that matters.

Final question, are the fans more quiet with the newer XPS 13 9380 models?

Thanks in advance for all useful feeback.
