Cooling system Lenovo C340 14IWL

Hello.
I recently bought C340 14IWL I5 8265U with VGA onboard Intel Graphic 620.
On the back of the device, I can see two slots to release the heat but only the right side is working. I have reviewed some documents from User Guides, Hardware Maintenance Manual and can see the cooling system with two fans.
I also know some version with VGA NVIDIA and I wonder if only these versions have a cooling system with two fans?
The reason that I ask this's because I often see fans run very fast and make noises. This is my first time using a laptop from Lenovo so I don't know if it's normal or not ? My previous laptop from Asus was rarely able to hear the noise from the fan.

And one more thing. I bought this laptop for 20 days and use Conservation Mode. Is full charge capacity (in Lenovo Vantage/Battery) reliable ? 10 days ago I checked and found 45Wh/45Wh(Design). 3 days ago it suddenly reduced to 41/45Wh, then i turned off Conservation mode and fully charged and now it's increased to 42.9/45Wh. (With 10 Cycle count)
Thank you

The video below show the inside of the C340 model without the discrete Nvidia graphics, and it does indeed have only a single, but larger, cooling fan than the two fan version.

I cannot answer you battery questions, but in my experience lithium batteries last longer in conservation mode (lifespan).

It's me. 

Thanks for the answer from you. In the videos you send, behind the laptop is only a large slot to release heat with a big fan. But my laptop is designed with 2 smaller slots. Like a cooling system with two fans. 
Now, I can see that the heat sink on the left slot is fake. It's made from plastic and not metal. 

And we're back...
