Awesome Setup!

Quick question, is your Mac always hot...well because of the external display...Don't get me wrong I understand the importance of an external display...but have you in any way experienced slowness, lag or delay when using the external display ?

FWIW... there is a lot of discussion on the interwebs about Macbooks and their incessant heat issues if you plug things, especially those using PD (power delivery), into the ports on the left hand side. I plug my hub and power on the right and the heat and constant fan went away. YMMV but it's worth a shot (assuming you're plugging things into the left side of the MB).

I'm plugging things on the left, the ports are on the left. Seems like that is the issue from your description
