I have ASUS Extensa 4220 laptop.
If I install Kubuntu (any KDE-based), then the CPU temperature looks normal for a long time (now it is 74 degree Celsius).
But when I install GNOME-based distros, then the temperature after some minutes of work rises to 90 degrees Celsius, and my laptop shuts down to prevent damages.

Why is there such a big difference with CPU temperature between KDE and GNOME? Also when I used Windows 8, the CPU temperatures there were normal (higher than on KDE, and not as high as on GNOME. Just for information.)
