Windows 11 Patches Fan Noise

My Laptop is typically used to play spotify or youtube. Basically idle. 11th gen i7 32GB of RAM. Has been mostly silent. Recent patches seems to have lead to a change. Not sure if it is intel or MS updates. Any thoughts?

OK weird I disconnected it from my Cal-Digit thunderbolt dock and it stopped. So it was somehow related to the external devices. At the time network, ethernet, audio. Not even a display.

The stupid Intel Arc Performance monitor was using 20% CPU F you Intel. Back to silent. I should just boot into Ubuntu and delete this partition who does this crap?
