Fan Noise and heating

Made a fresh install with latest dr460nized kde and and my system is having more fan noise and a little more heating which was not same before the updates.

System is updated.

Try htop maybe some app working in background like indexing app.

and clean? no dust inside :wink:

No dust :sweat_smile: i keep my laptop more clean than myself.

Can't find much from htop but facing mostly this when playing a video from vlc or mpv.

Well can you give me output of

mhwd -l

And

mhwd -li

mostly open 4 to 5 apps like vscode firefox telegram vlc so i think it should be sufficient for 8 gb ram to run.

Ohh it seems i made a big mistake

It seems optimus-manager isnt installed for your hardware so its possible both gpu are powered on.

I will do an update and you can give me the output again

I think i should mention :thinking: I choose free during installation. I don't have much idea but once installed with nonfree drivers and there was a more battery drainage so afterwards I choose free drivers.

Well but still can you do this

sudo pacman -Sy mhwd-db-garuda-git

Then give me output of
