LOUD FANS! HP ENVY -13 2017 KABY LAKE i7

Hi Got a Brand new HPEnvy 13 4k (i7 Kaby Lake) this month (April 2017) and to be fair the fans are plain ridicoulous, they run run loud and high pitched on max when no processes/updates are running FOR NO REASON! The overheating is SHOCKING. I am an IT Technician so i've done all the usual Bios updates and doesn't need cleaned its new!, hp coolsense wont work with this model, its no good anyway..

 

i really need some proper fans installed or at least a far better bios than the one released (F12) the worse laptop i have ever spent money on . . i mean theres just no need for it to sound like a jumbo jet on idle or doing the slightest bit of browsing on ANY browser. 

 

Hope i haven't sounded aggressive in my typing however i am more than unhappy with the £900 i have spent.

 

I know im not the only one who has this issue.

 

Please can someone with expert knowledge help? dont need a link to how to reduce heat i need better fans and better BIOS

 

best regards and thank you

Expert knowledge isn't going to help. There is no other BIOS or other fan. You have a lemon. Can you possibly return it?
