I do have all the warrentys plus extra but was wondering is it normal to sound like the fan is working overtime? Never had a laptop for gaming just a basic i3 work horse.

This may sound like a dumb question:

Are you using that laptop on a hard flat surface, or are you using it on your lap or some other soft surface?

Does that laptop run at a somewhat normal temperature when you're not gaming, or does it run hot all of the time?

I did some researching on it, and there are several complaints about it overheating.

I use my laptop without the battery and place it under my laptop so air can circulate and it's not sitting on a flat surface which can cause overheating

have you considered air circulation as it helps to keep the laptop from overheating and shutting down

I think it's somewhat normal. I have a Dell Precision 5520 laptop workstation with a Geforce GPU (forget which model), 16GB of RAM, i7 processor, and 512GB M.2 NVMe drive. When I do graphics intensive stuff, the laptop does run quite warm and the fans spin up pretty fast.

It just follows when you load down the laptop that the processor and GPU will be working harder and generating more heat. This is why I still have a desktop gaming box. I'm able to get better/faster hardware for less money than a laptop. And there is the ability to cool the hardware better with a desktop chassis.
