Re: 2019 mbp loud fan when running on external monitor

Just because a fan speeds up doesn’t necessarily mean theres a problem that needs to be addressed. Your mac is designed to do that so it can run as quietly as possible yet provide sufficient cooling when needed. I don’t know what model you have but mine has over a dozen different sensors monitoring various components inside the computer so it would help to know what component(s) in yours, if any, might be overheating. Without knowing actual temperature values you might be throwing money and adaptors at it needlessly.
