When I use my laptop, it always heats up a lot in the center above the touch bar on top. I can feel it quite heated below as well under the top center.
The CPU is fine (no processes going crazy). Fans are not really loud at all and I suspect they are working below the speed they should be. This was an issue when I bought it as well.
I did (multiple) SMC resets when I first bought, as this was an issue straight away. After the reset it worked fine for a few weeks and then I'd do another reset. A year and a half later thouhg, when I do an SMC reset, I don't notice the heat going away and it's still working the same way.
P.S. Since I have been working from home, I often connect to an external monitor, no-surprise there that this causes heat. When I don't work with one, it's still warmer that it should be in my opinion.
Any idea what may be the causing the issue and how can I fix it?
