Fan is loud while charging


I bought the ZenBook 14" (UX434FA-BH51-CB). Whenever I plug in the charger I can hear the fan even while I don't run any heavy program or even nothing. Is this normal? Should I return the laptop?


Thank you.

Re: Fan is loud while charging

Check the power settings at the bottom right. Your laptop can be set to high performance while plugged in and that can cause a noisy fan.

Hey there, soroushkazemi,


Thanks for reaching out! I'm not a huge fan of my laptops fans kicking into high gear, so I totally feel you. 


I love what hockeycanuckjc said! There's a really good chance your laptop is set to give you some extra juice while plugged in, and that's why the fans are turning on. Also, you may want to double check your task manager to make sure that nothing is running as you expect. While you may not have anything running yourself, different applications or Windows may be using this plugged in time to download and install updates.
