Thinkpad x380 yoga excessive fan activity when connected to Thunderdock 3

I have multiple new x380s that connect to the Thunderdock 3.  All systems are fully patched.

When using the Yoga disconnected from Dock the Fan operates normally, however when you connect them to the Dock the fan constantly runs and gets louder.  I have tried changing processor performance, and installing the fan speed patch that they recommended.  all with no luck.  has anyone had similar experience?  any luck in resolution?

Hi AggravatedIT!

 

Is your X380 Yoga running on Windows 10? 

If yes, try installing the PowerConfiguration Patch here

Are there any external displays connected to the docking station? Possible that it utilizes the graphics card causing the fans to run high.

Same problem here.

 

I use a X380 Yoga connected to a Lenovo Thunderbold 3 Dock with two displays attached. 

While the X380 Yoga is connected to the dock the fan noise is running the whole day. If i attach the X380 Yoga directly to one display without the dock via HDMI there is no fan noise the whole day.
