    Not happy with my Clevo... sending it back and will pay the restocking fee. Just running Firefox and Postbit email client and the fans constantly run and a lot of heat emits from the unit. Very disappointed that a $2,500 laptop isn't any better than this. Bummer... but it is what it is.

    Sounds like a power setting issue if the air is coming out hot and it's using a lot of power. Either the dedicated GPU is being activated by mistake or the CPU is set to high performance.

    Balanced power setting. Not sure about the GPU.

    During web browsing it should be quiet.

    You can check if your GPU is active in the Nvidia driver control panel, under the desktop tab at the top click to enable the usage indicator. A quick program like CPU-z will show you if your CPU is clocking up beyond basic 800mhz - 1.2Ghz kind of idle speeds.
