Dell XPS laptops are fairly high-performance machines, but one of the downsides to all that power is an exceptionally loud system fan. Resolve this issue by utilising a third-party fan management program to customise the fan speed of your XPS laptop, enabling you to lower the fan speed to inaudible levels when the computer is not under load.

Easy
