I notice that when running a stress test in Ubuntu desktop, my laptop begins the throttle when temperatures reach ~90C. I have noticed that when Ubuntu-server was installed on the same laptop, throttling began at much higher temperatures. Only at about 100C. I was not able to recreate this in Ubuntu-desktop. How can I change the temperature at which throttling begins.


It appears that stopping the service thermald makes it possible for the system to reach much higher temperatures before throttling.
