Fan running excessively on a new Dell Precision 5540

Status: Closed | Case Number: 0000004 | Created By: Drew | Created Date: 2020-12-24 06:12:57 EST

I am running a new Precision 5450 laptop. It comes with 32GB of memory, i9 CPU @ 2.30GHz processor. Unfortunately, the fan is running fairly consistently with the main culprit looking like “System Process”.

Switching to Quiet mode seems to have improved the fan.
