Someone can help me i just added thermal monitor but don't know what is what

by the way maybe someone can help me i just added thermal monitor but don't know what is what
okay i can see usb's and hdds and batt but no proc temp

You need to install something like autocpu-freq(for all cpus) and thermald(it for intel i suppose)
autocpu-freq is baisically a cpu limiter which detects your usage and adjusts the maximum cpu usage thershold and reduces it when you are just letting it chill
Thermald it helps cool down your pc by using some fancy colling techniques

You can remove theperformance-mode and gamemode for lower temps aswell as switch to linux and linux-lts kernels instead of linux-zen

pls deinstall autocpu-freq and install corectrl it can gobaly use in ondemand mode its important for battery mode and set frequences by usage maybe it cools your pc as it should

What is the systemctl command for it i mean like autocpu-freq.service what is it for corectrl

first you have to deinstall autofreq than install corectrl then you can search it in searchbar and configure

Oh corectrl is good? I will try it.
Edit: It is great if your cpu and kernel allows ondemand but mine only has powersave and performance so I can't use it.

Edit2: Bit more digging. Turns out if you use intel_pstate you will only have access to two gov'ners however they function the same as the ondemand one. The intel_pstate driver supports only two governors: powersave and performance. Although they share the name with the generic governors, they do not work in the same way as the generic governors. Both intel_pstate governors provide dynamic scaling similar to the schedutil or ondemand generic governors. The performance governor provided by intel_pstate [should give better power saving functionality than the old ondemand governor . Source

that can be but my problem was that in battery modus my laptop gets in powersave modus and my laptop was unusable very slow wait for dolphin opens over a minute
so i changed to ondemand and everything gets fine
i don't know why and why intelp-state powersave is so slow but for me it works

Whats your specs?

Well your cpu is a dual core i5. I guess it doesn't play well with the pstate governers. Have you perhaps tried a more powerful kernel? I think you can safely use linux-zen without much hassle since your cpu doesn't output that much heat. Plus no dGPU means less heat produced. Maybe the zen kernels pstate governers could help? Also have you checked out this kernel ?
