Loud Fan Noise only when playing games.

OMEN by HP Laptop PC - 17-w033
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have just purchased my OMEN by HP Laptop PC - 17-w033 from Best Buy.  One of the reasons I bought it was the reviews I read about the low fan noise.  Well every single game I have tried the FAN Starts spinning loudly. I have changed the CoolSense settings with no change.  Regular use of the laptop and it is as quiet as a mouse.  Therefore is it the GPU that is installed or something else?  Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

This is to be expected -- as when you are gaming, that is demanding a LOT more power, both from the processor and the graphics chipset.  Together, these generate a lot more heat, and the fan then has to speed up to remove that heat.

 

CoolSense is going to have no effect when you're gaming.
