i reset the SMC but that didn’t help, so I installed Macs Fan Control from https://crystalidea.com/macs-fan-control and set it to control the fan speed based on CPU PECI temperature; the fan speeds up at 60 degrees C and maxes out at 80. Probably over-conservative but it works for me and keeps things nice and cool.

Macs Fan Control is the way to go. I want the fans running as fast and loud as necessary--both to avoid cooking the silicon and to minimize the CPU throttling that laptops are famous for. On my 2012 MBP, external cooling solutions are completely feeble compared running the internal fan(s) faster. Externals may help a tiny bit---I'd guess about ≈3%--- compared to just making the internal fans free to max out when necessary.
