Re: High cpu temperature <---(Solved)

and now the same in Xfce if i load the cpu 70-80%.. it doesn't overheat.. it goes up to around 65C and the fan kicks in and the temp drops. But in Mate with only 25-30% load it stayed around 70-75C with high fan speed and it didn't dropped a bit.. Well, those obviously don't go together, if the fan...

Re: High cpu temperature <---(Solved)

if it only was a misbehaving javascript, then it shouldn't happen all the time. And if it was, then the problem should occur even on Xfce. Fair point. But this phenomenon does raise a really curious question... what is causing the problem, and why....... If it would be possible to identify the caus...

Re: High cpu temperature <---(Solved)

If it's purely web related it could also be some misbehaving javascript. Some sites even run crypto-miners on your computer via javascript. Just a possibility.

Re: High cpu temperature <---(Solved)

Just to explain a little. I never watch youtube or streaming video, so it wasn't the cause of the overheating.. I have my TVcomputer(win7Pro) for streaming videos and youtube.. it feels like my 42 inch TVscreen beats my 15.5 inch laptop for that task. :wink: I have also changed the hardware accelera...

Re: High cpu temperature <---(Solved)

Why do I revive this thread. Well because when EOL is approaching for 18.3 I have to upgrade... LM18 is still supported for two more years. You are however using a kernel that is long end-of-life. That aside it's quite unlikely that the desktop environment was the cause, much more likely the re-ins...

Re: High cpu temperature <---(Solved)

A small update 7 months later on the same installation. Xfce was the solution. So the new question is.... Why was it the solution..... Is this a desktop bug? Is this bug still left in Mate and Cinnamon 19.x? and is Xfce still spared from the bug in 19.x should I report this bug? and if so, to whom.....

...'desktops' cannot by definition change temperatures by...20+ degrees, and i've explained why. Let alone broken BIOSes.

I would try MX Linux.
By the way, browsing around is not small stuff anymore these days... webpages have gotten a lot heavier than they used to be. :?
I thank you for the tip, I will read about MX Linux this weekend and test it next week. :)
