Lenovo Yoga 720 15" : hot when playing games on charger, cool when playing games on battery???

Hello,

 

I have a question. My Lenovo Yoga 720 15.6" doesn't overheat, although I've noticed something rather odd. When I play Fifa 17 with the charger plugged in, the fans are very loud and the laptop gets pretty hot. When I play Fifa 17 on battery only (charger not plugged in) the fans are quite silent and the laptop doesn't get hot at all. Why is that? For all I know, I would expect the exact opposite...

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,
Tijs

The CPU runs at full speed when it is plugged in and runs more slowly on battery to save power.  Faster = more heat.
