I recently installed Ubuntu 13.10 and now my fans are working all the time, they never stop. Before i had Windows 8.1 and then the fans did not work this much at all. The cpu was often quiet. Why do the fans work all the time in Ubuntu? Can i change it?

I have an Asus K56C Intel Core i7-3537U CPU @ 2.00GHz, 8 GB RAM
