Extremely loud fan on docked mode (advice needed)

Level 7

I bought a Ally a couple of weeks back to use primarily in docked model. Recently I've been trying out Gears 5 docked in my living room and the fan noise is extremely loud to the point of being intrusive. 

How normal is this? I've booked a repair with Asus but I'm wondering if this is actually just how the device performs in dock mode and maybe I'd be better of returning it while the return window is still open?

Any advice appreciated!

You can adjust the fan curve yourself through manual profile but advised against it. Louder fan noise ensures better cooling and safer operating system. Turn off your cpu boost too. For me the fan noise is audible once I use 20w tdp because I adjust the fan to work harder at 60 degrees.
