    Does the fan of maxed out MacBook Pro 2017 15" kicks in and the laptop becomes noisy when it is connected to 1-2 4K display(s) and play youtube videos?

    I have a maxed out MacBook Pro 2016 15" (which is similar, although not identical to the 2017) and the fans rev up a little bit when connected to a 4K display as it's always using the dGPU. Currently they're spinning at 2200 and 2400 rpm.

    You won't hear them, though, unless you're in an extremely quiet room.

    I heard that the Kaby Lake has some kind of processing power for 4K. Maybe it is quieter?!
