Hello everyone, although the laptop does not get too hot, the fans are running very fast. I think this is abnormal. This may be why?

You have this Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-54W2 Gaming Notebook.

It came with only 8 GB of DDR4 RAM, so you should seriously consider adding another 8 GB and running it with 16 GB.

It has an impressive processor and graphics for a notebook, but they're being handicapped by it having only 8 GB of RAM.

Sometimes the fan's heatsinks can get clogged with crap that reduces the fan's effectiveness, which will cause the fan to spin faster to remove the heat. If that is the problem you could try using a can of air to blow into the vents, that should clear them. It's a good idea to use something like a cocktail stick to stop the fans from turning before you do it, otherwise they could spin very fast which could damage the bearings.
