Fans on Creator 17 B11UE

Hi,

Is there a way to control the fans on this laptop? They keep turning on and off even when I'm basically doing nothing and the CPU < 10% and the GPU is at 0% (spiking when alt-tabbing or swiping up on the track-pad). The temperature of the laptop keeps fluctuating around 55 and 60 degrees. I'd like to have the fans on constantly but I can't find the option within the BIOS or creator suite. In the creator suite I already set the user scenario to silent but that doesn't seem to be helping.

The laptop is is my possession for about 2 to 3 months but I haven't had the time to configure it yet, so I started doing that yesterday. So it's basically fresh out of the box and I installed Windows 11 on it.

Apart from it being very annoying it also doesn't seem to be good for the laptop to be constantly turning on and off the fans, I'd say keeping them running constantly at a low pace would be far better. Right now they turn on and off about 10-20 times per minute no matter what I do. I'm not looking forward to using the laptop like this.

Is this normal or do I have a defective product? Is this a known issue for this particular model?

Thanks in advance,
Brian

I think the temperature you mentioned would trigger the fan spinning.
You can set the fan speed in Center Pro :
1. set the user scenario to high performance click the gear on it
2. the fan speed setting tab will open, select Advanced so that you could set fan speed with different workloads corresponding to different temperatures.

Thanks that's what I was looking for, although even at the lowest percentage the fans are still quite loud.

Right now I have elevated my laptop a little so that it has some more room beneath the case to vent the air, that seems to help. I haven't heard the fans for 3 hours now. The temperature is also acceptable at a range from 40 to 50 degrees.

I guess for these kinds of laptops a laptop stand or maybe even a laptop cooler is a good and maybe even necessary investment? Setting up the laptop flat on my desk does seem to overheat it causing the fans to activate. While the surrounding area is free and the room temperature is around 20 degrees.

Any advise on laptop coolers? I'd like to make use of the laptops keyboard and track-pad while it's on there.

If you don't need extreme performance during light workload, you can disable turbo boost, it will quiet your fan asap
