Heating very fast

Made a fresh install with latest kde multimedia and and my system is having more fan noise and a much more heating . i have nvidia gefore mx150 and my driver is 460.32.03. the heating is of a level that , when the system boots it starts with 43 to 45 degree and keep on rising and the fan noise is just too much irritating.

To be fair, for later readers, what will be latest next week?

You did not read :smiley:

Provide the name of the iso (full name!) used to install Garuda on your system

@kumardeepanshu No problem, we start all as newbies :wink:


i am sorry :pleading_face:

means the iso file which i use to install garuda , so name of that iso right??



Sometimes there are testing versions for dev's in the DL area which have bugs, so to be clear you use not a buggy version. Also for fixing bugs is needed too.


CPU speed is high, maybe you start in terminal


maybe the file indexer is in use?

Maybe BIOS update is possible?

No bro nothing, nothing is running in the background and the temperature is 43

Lets see if other user can help.

tlp in use?

Tlp means ???


No should I install it ?

No, wait, I do not use Notebook, so wait please.

Okay .. no problem...

That is not very high for any system, never mind a laptop.

Also keep in mind that the distribution is specifically optimised for performance. Performance means more power required. More power required means more heat.
