    Found Overactive Fan solution (Or did I?)


    Greetings Win10sters,

    I'm the Mac switcher that visits now and again. The Windows noob from 2016. Nearly all is well with thanks to you and yours. But I do have a question. You see -- I believe I found an answer but since I'm still noobish I'm actually not sure I did.

    PROBLEM -- My Asus VivoMini PC is a brand new little beauty. Takes up very little room yet gives me the muscle I need. The problem? The fan WHIRS on at the drop of a hat.

    I can be on a webpage like this... typing text into a comment field like this... and actually hear the fan whir more when typing and then ease off when I'm not. Stupid sensitive for an i5. Terribly 'tuned' as it were.

    Open a web browser and the fan ERUPTS. Loading page after page. Dies down once done but again... just sneeze its way and the fan briefly kicks on... then off. On... then off.

    SOLUTION -- Somewhere on YouTube I saw a dude essentially suggest this --

    The result? Fan is always on but typically quiet. If I tax the system the fan increases moderately. I can type these words and here zero increase of fan.

    BUT IS IT FIXED -- Sounds like it is, right? But since I'm not sure what I'm doing I don't know if I'm creating a problem down the line.

    My first obvious choice was to involved Speccy and verify that the system wasn't running warmer now. Tricky to test but I got zero indication that I'm making the system warmer by doing this.

    So tell me -- did I fix it? Or am I screwed?

    Thanks in advance for all HELP

    Well... since no one was convinced I've taken a risk... I'll presume I've resolved my issue.
