Re: Linux Mint temps vs. Manjaro - Dell XPS 15 9560 - can I get temps down?

It has been a while since I started this thread, but I haven't had enough time to wipe my machine and re-install Mint (It is always in use and even when I have a day off, I can't afford to accidentally mess it up so badly I can't get back to work within a few hours). But I did actually get the time ...

Re: Linux Mint temps vs. Manjaro - Dell XPS 15 9560 - can I get temps down?

I'm still running Manjaro (the latest version - up to date) and it is still running cool. I want to try installing Mint again this long weekend if I get the time. One thing I noticed was that Manjaro has tlp installed by default (and I assume it is running - tlp-stat appears to be working so I'm gue...

Re: Linux Mint temps vs. Manjaro - Dell XPS 15 9560 - can I get temps down?

Well there is no 'magic bullet' for many systems. Sometimes if you have a 'hot' system, your going to have to try to live with it (or try a different distro). My current Acer Travelmate laptop (one of the two laptops to survive the 'heating wars' back under 17.1) sits on a 'cooling pad' and has dir...

Re: Linux Mint temps vs. Manjaro - Dell XPS 15 9560 - can I get temps down?

Late to the 'over-heating' party. But i got my wings (cooked a laptop to death when i first started using Mint (17.1)). There is a link in my sig that has some tips, plus if you search for posts i've made, many of the earlier ones were relating to dealing with over-heating issues under Mint. I thin...

Re: Linux Mint temps vs. Manjaro - Dell XPS 15 9560 - can I get temps down?

I think i have an idea that just might help you...i tend to run Peppermint linux myself because i like a system that has minimal amount of default programs installed and is very easy on system hardware...im recommending you try the "Peppermint 9 respin" edition and try it out to see if that doesnt ...

Re: Linux Mint temps vs. Manjaro - Dell XPS 15 9560 - can I get temps down?

Im sorry, I thought you were asking for Linux Mint help, Not Ubuntu...DAMIEN I was. I first tried installing 19.3 and had the excessive temperatures. I then tried 19.3 XFCE with the same results. I then tried Ubuntu 20.04 with the same results as well. Then I tried Manjaro Gnome and had what I cons...

Re: Linux Mint temps vs. Manjaro - Dell XPS 15 9560 - can I get temps down?

I am running an 8th gen Intel core i7 with 16GB RAM. The computer is a Dell XPS 15 9560 model. I'll give those commands a try. Currently I have Ubuntu 20.04 installed (testing it without any proprietary drivers). The drivers are as follows: bvz@XPS-15-9560:~$ inxi -G Graphics: Device-1: Intel HD Gra...

Re: Linux Mint temps vs. Manjaro - Dell XPS 15 9560 - can I get temps down?

MrEan, Thanks for the suggestion, I'll try to compare the different driver versions. I just finished testing a vanilla Manjaro Gnome install as well as a Manjaro Cinammon install. Both show very low temperatures vs. the Ubuntu derived distros. Always in the mid to high 30's compared to the over 50's...

Linux Mint temps vs. Manjaro - Dell XPS 15 9560 - can I get temps down?

Hello, I am not sure if this is the correct forum to be posting this. Please let me know if I should move this questions. I am eager to switch to Linux Mint (from Manjaro Gnome). I am getting tired of the UI decisions that Gnome is making, and I can't keep up with a rolling release cycle. I want som...

Re: Cannot boot into live usb (XPS 15 9560)

Managed to solve the issue. I edited the boot options and replaced quiet splash with nomodeset.

I used this guide:

Now I have to figure out why my machine seems to be idling at 52 degrees.
