New to Linux Mint - Question for Gaming

Post by lukahils2 »

Hi folks,

I recently ditched windows and installed linux mint 19 on my computer. After updating GPU drivers and installing steam I played hollowknight to test performance. Although I did not notice any stuttering my system got a lot warmer than it usually got while playing the same game on windows. It's not even a heavy game to pull for my machine ( i5 quad 3.2 GHz, 16 gb RAM, SSD, Nvidia GTX 1060 6 GB)

did I forget something? Are there drivers for processors or my tower fans that I forgot to istall?

I tried googling but found nothing so here I am asking you guys.
