I installed Ubuntu 16.04 on my ASUS UX501VW and the fans are blasting at full speed. I have tried to install the kernel 4.6 (as suggested here) and kernel 4.3.5 (as suggested here), but both didn't solve the problem. I have to add that this is my first time installing and using ubuntu, so I am a total noob. Other problems the above guys seemed to have I don't really have, WiFi works perfectly, as does the touchpad. Also I'm running this as a dual boot, Windows 10 is installed on another partition.
Any other suggestions as to what I could do?
