Hi,

I thought the problem was resolved but now is worst.

This report indicates your processor is overheating--perhaps due to clogged air paths or even a defective fan.
Yes Intel processors throttle back heavily in such situations.
Please post your terminal results of:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
This will give more information to go with

If are problems only with the fan or the air paths i will open the notebook to take a look.

Thanks for providing that info.
As you said in the beginning--You have a good notebook. I agree, and being so new I doubt the airflow
could be so severely obstructed in this short period of time. But a fan failure is still possible (though unlikely).
Others may offer advice after seeing your inxi report.
Perhaps some process is running out of control, even your graphics, causing excessive processor activity.
In this situation I would boot using the installation .iso usb/dvd into the live desktop mode and check the operation there.

Possibly where the notebook is sitting, like on a bed or something external blocking air ports.

Very new hardware. Try the latest kernel of the 4.18 series, by means of the reliable canonical-kernel-team PPA:

Yes, that much was already clear. Well, try the 4.18.x. As I advised in my previous message. :wink:

Any idea why i'm getting this?

CPU6: Core temperature above threshold, cpu clock throttled (total events = 1)

grivusag,

Your previous posts attachments show the CPU cores are governing back when not heavily tasked (which should be the correct behavior depending upon your governing configuration), and that the temperatures were reasonable (in your inxi output). Logs show repetitive overtemp warnings on all cores. But now, you are only having the issue with core 6?

Try this in terminal: sudo apt-get install i7z.

This will install a simple, small program to allow viewing of core activity.

Once installed, type: sudo i7z, and after it scrolls through some print-out, you will get a basic screen of real-time data of individual core C-states, and the Vcore voltages. (max Vcore for that CPU is 1.52v, but in application you shouldn't see it getting anywhere near that value.)

Monitor, and see if something is momentarily spiking that core to 100%, and what the Vcore voltage is at the time. If something is heavily tasking the core continuously, and it throttles back, you'll see a percentage of the C0 state move over to the C1 (halt) state.

Also, if you haven't already, you can install psensor.
-- in terminal, run sudo sensors-detect. answer yes (y) to all the questions.
-- run sudo apt-get install psensor.
Open the graphical psensor from your start Menu (it should be in Administration).

You can look at each individual core temperature there, and set the graph up to plot over an adjustable time period, that way if its something that happens quick when you're not looking, you will at least see the spike on the graph. (i7-7700HQ throttling should kick in around 90C.)

Have you ever made any changes in the bios since purchasing this system?
