I recently installed the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on a MacBook Pro, and I have noticed some overheating issues. Specifically, I used indicator-sensors and psensors to monitor the temperature, and the average is approximately 55 degrees celsius. How significant is the overheating?
To try and lower the temperature, I used cpufreq, and set it to 'powersave' mode. In addition, I have installed TLP, and during the measurements it had already been running for an hour, in AC mode.
I'd like to maximize the lifetime of my processor, which means minimizing the temperature as much as possible. Are there any other packages or methods to maintain a better temperature?
