Re: Annoying fan noises on 2018 XPS 15 9570

I appreciate that Dell has put a Max-Q GPU and a six-core CPU in the same form factor as the 9550; these are both components with a significantly higher power draw and heat output than the i7/960M the case was originally designed for.

I applied the registry edit that pertained to SSD drives causing 100% load at idle - still the fan noise persisted.

I have a suspicion that an uneven load on the CPU may be caused by the onboard graphics - I will test whether low-load on the discrete GPU resolves the matter, but I'm not extremely hopeful, especially if my first statement proves correct.
