comment Does ubuntu make computer heat up more than windows?
@Rinzwind On the machine mostly runs whatever runs on Startup by defualt, my browser, terminal vim, and a Second Life client Phoenix Firestorm. Same stuff that run normally in windows and the heat is fine there. I have a AMD card, with prop drivers as well. Right now I just have chromium open with 3 tabs, and the temp is at 63C+/-... in windows it would be at 50C+/-. Note that Right now I can't really do a serious comparison of heats because my fan works correctly whenever it wants. This question tho is something that I've noticed for a while now even when my fan worked fine.

comment Can't get rid of “previous version of fglrx” and installing AMD's drivers fails
I had the AMD driver (the one from their site) installed first. Then I wanted to see what the one that ubuntu offers is capable of, so I went in additional drivers program and installed the driver from there. When I saw that it wasn't better than AMD's I did the steps above. removed and then tried to re-install. btw too late for the reboot and stuff. I already forced it and now it's worse. It starts up with a warning that it runs in a low graphics mode. Any ideas? Or should I install ubuntu from scratch? (To be honest that seems easier than all this trouble)

But it says forcing is not recommended... Why is it not recommended and is it safe?

comment Problem with AMD HD 8xxx Series graphics card
I marked this one as an answer because AMD released drivers that support my graphics card. So this answer can be a "hint" for others to look at amd's website.
