Thermald is enough for new laptop with Intell cpu?

Hello Garuda users.
I have a new laptop (with garuda of course) Dell Latitude 3420 with Intel 11 gen cpu Core i5-1135G7, my "old" laptop is a AMD zen+ so I'm new of Intel SoC, I read on arch wiki that use thermald for this specific Dell laptop is mandatory Dell Latitude 3420 - ArchWiki so I installed it.
I tell you garuda folks if Thermald is enough or I need some extra tools (or setting) not conflicting with Thermald? I use it only to web browsing and see youtube video, not game at all.
Thanks!

It should be fine. :slightly_smiling_face:

Don’t forget to enable thermald if you haven’t already:

sudo systemctl enable --now thermald

Thanks
