I have AMD A10 with 4 cores, AMD Radeon HD 8670M. (Asus x550ze) It's fan is loud. Is it normal for such powerful laptops to be loud or I made a bad purchase ?
As @whs says, laptops fans DO get very loud...
- According to the Amazon reviews, a few people drilled holes into their cases:
-Tends to overheat with a 35w CPU. I had to drill holes in the case just to get more air to the fan. It doesn't overheat now.
You can also try replacing the fan, though it doesn't seem to be easy to do on your device and I'm not sure how effective that is...
On Windows, make sure no background processes/apps are using up too many resources by going to the
You can also try a Cooler Pad
You can also clean your laptop... Dust buildup often blocks airflow and leads to heating
Laptops have small fans because of the space restrictions. If those small fans want to produce a larger amount of air, they have to turn very fast which makes them loud.
In addition you are dealing with an AND CPU which produces more heat than a comparable Intel CPU.
One thing you can try is a cooling pad. They lower the temps by 5 to 10 degrees according to my experience. But get a unit with it's own power supply - not USB powered.
