Rambling about having to use corporate Windows devices from time to time and how they are killing me inside. (

@bekopharm I feel you. We have a similar setup and the fans kick into high gear on login and just occasionally while doing *nothing*. This machine is probably ~2-3x faster than my home laptop, but with the way they have it encumbered, they may as well be on par with each other.

@nathand This also. While my own rig is as quiet as possible - whispering like - provided devices always spin the fans reminding of jets taking off.

@bekopharm My laptop's fans only spin up (sounds like a quiet exhale) when Firefox starts, then it's quiet again.

We've had phone calls where I've had to put on a headset because the noise of the fan was too loud to vs the internal microphone.
