this is my first question here, I'm a newbie. I've just installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my laptop Sony Vaio VPCEB1C5E E-Series.
The hardware is:
- CPU: intel i5-430M
- RAM: 2x2GB DDR3
- SSD: Crucial M4 64GB
- GPU: AMD Radeon HD5650M
It seems like Ubuntu super-stress my cpu or gpu because my fan is always moving fast (faster than on Windows 7 system) and the cpu cores temp is higher than it was when using Windows 7. The two cores are aobout 4°C hotter, they're at 53°C simply surfing the net with Chrome.
I wonder if there's something I can do to lower the spinning of my fan that is noise-annoying me, or understand why Ubuntu does this. The prpblem is that 'top' shows me low percentage load on cpus, just about 3%, 10%... But the cores are still hotter than they should.
