If it won't go above 1.6GHz even when under load then I'd suspect heatsink/fan problems as the chips contain thermal monitoring that limits their speed when the temperature gets high. [by TrevorH]
My laptop has done a thermal shutdown several times tonight due to high temperature readings. The computer however is not running at a temperature any higher than it normally does. I think the temperature sensor is malfunctioning and reading the temperature incorrectly. It is reading upwards of 250 degrees Fahrenheit but it is only warm to the touch. There is no way it is running this hot.
I just purchased a new computer and it is running hotter than it should. OCCT and Prime 95 give load temps of around 80c after 10 minutes. This is at stock speeds in a Corsair 450d Obsidian case. Idle temps look OK at around 32c. Should I remove the H60, reapply thermal paste, and reinstall the heatsink? I am guessing load temps should be in the high 50s or low 60s with this setup.
I have erratic working linux box and I suspect that it have some issues with either thermal monitoring modules, or even hardware.
I think about logging for some time temperature other things to see what's wrong.
However I have no idea how to load pc without running X server (easier to relaunch or stop, less things that can go wrong).
Is there any ideas for custom script for loading up pc, (i.e.
I have a dell studio 1555 notebook with Core2Duo CPU and ATI Radeon GPU. Recently, I noticed that, during idle time, the CPU heat kicks down and the temperature reduces to some room temperature level. But the GPU never gets below some level, even if it remain Unused.

As you can see, the red line is not coming down like yellow.
This tutorial shows how to monitor your Ubuntu system resources such as usage of processor, memory, network, hard disk and also cpu/motherboard temperature, cpu fan speed.
There’s a good system load indicator for Ubuntu monitoring cpu usage, cache, memory, network, etc. And psensor is a gtk+ application monitoring temperatures and fan speeds.
Hello everyone, I hope someone will help me in my attempt.I have a Toshiba protege z830, and what I am trying to accomplish is to have a better control over the fan speed.My motivations are the following:- Intel implemented a new Thermal Daemon for Linux ( https://01.org/linux-thermal-daemon ), which is able to play with the processor and enable advanced cooling methods that can drasti
