I just bought an XPS 8930 and the fans are almost constantly running. On top of that, the fans are LOUD and can be heard over 20 feet away. Also, the PC runs the fans up to full speed even when the screen is dimmed because I haven't taken any action for 5+ minutes.
I've upgraded the BIOS to v1.1.13 and all the drivers that Microsoft and Dell recommended but that didn't help in any way.
I'm running the PC in about a 70 degree (F) environment, so not even close to hot.
Anyone have any idea as to how to fix this problem? I'm extremely sad that if this fan noise issue can't be resolved, the PC will have to be sent back to Dell.
