Detailed description: I recently bought a zenbook flip s ux363 Oled (as in today), and everything about it is fantastic....except for the heat radiating on the keyboard deck. I know thin laptops heat up, but this heats up an uncomfortable amount even when idling on the desktop right in the middle of the keyboard, my last thin and light got no where near this hot. I'm not sure if it was designed this way or if i have a defective unit, but is there some way to bump up the fan speed to mitigate some of the heat? I've already tried switching between the different fan profiles, they don't seem to do anything, i cannot hear a change in the fan behavior.

I've let it go through all the updates to make sure it wasn't doing anything in the background.

can't undervolt because it's been locked out.

CPU idles at around 46-47 (which again, feels hot)
