I'm running Xubuntu 19.10 on my laptop (Lenovo Legion Y540), it seems to be getting pretty hot (screenshot added), and the fans are running like hell.

I have a dual boot with Windows. I checked the temps there and those are a few degrees lower, and the fans are quieter.

Any idea what can I do?



Tried to change few setting, once I've configured Nvidia X server settings to run on the Intel GPU (and not on Nvidias), the fans seems to be getting quiet, and temps went down.
