X1C6 at full CPU regardless of plugged in or not

2019-03-05, 7:11 AM

The fan is always running fullspeed, regardless if my X1C6 is plugged in or not. Downloaded HWinfo and my CPU is maxed out at 3.8 at all times.

 

I do run my laptop with eGPU via Nvidia but it seems ever since I messed with some settings to try to get my eGPU to accelerate Minecraft I've broken my power settings somehow. The fan is getting really annoying when I just want to watch some videos in bed, not trying to supercompute the cure for cancer.

Ok I got it fixed. I had to go to control panel and change the power setting to the "balanced" plan, seems windows 10 has some wonky battery settings if you change it via the control panel instead of the settings
