    Welcome to the community.  Core I7 processors do get hot and can generate a good deal of heat especially if turbo boost is enabled.  The system should be able to safely exhaust the heat from the notebook without causing any damage.

    I am including a link on how to diagnose a system that may be overheating.


    Here are some notes on keeping up with maintenance on the system.

    You should periodically clean out the cooling vents with a can of compressed air

    Be on the look out on Support.dell.com for any BIOS updates that regulate how the fan runs.

    Run diagnostics on the system to verify if there are problems with the cooling fan.  Start the system tapping F12 and choose diagnostics. If you get the chance agree to run hardware diagnostics, choose symptom tree and choose the fan test.

    Just as long as you keep up on cleaning out the cooling vents,  I suggest using a cooling pad,  and periodically running diagnostics you shouldn't have to worry about heat issues.

    If your notebook is having symptoms associated with heat issues please reply back with the model of the notebook and I may be able to help.
