Hi, I bought a X1E with i7-8850H, 32GB RAM and two 1TB SSDs. I have noisy fan issue even I just surf the internet or send email. Will exchanging a model with i7-8750H or even i5-8400H CPU solve the noisy fan issue?

Try adjusting the CPU power settings to limit maximum processor power.

Windows 10 > Display Settings > Power & Sleep > Additional Power Settings > Change plan settings > Change advanced power settings > Processor power management > Maximum processor power state

I cannot find Windows10>Display Settings.

I went to Setting->Display but no Power & Sleep. Under Setting, there is Power and Sleep. However, there is no additional power settings.
