    CPU Temperature is high

    Hello everyone!

    I just love Slackware, but there is a annoying thing that's making me give up him.


    CPU 42+-
    CPU FAN 2300


    CPU 49
    CPU FAN 2900

    The annoying thing: noise, 110% more noise than Ubuntu

    I have tried some things, but I don't know what else I can do. So I'm here to get some help

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Both temperatures seem high to me, unless they are under high load. What kernels are each of these systems using? My guess is that they are different, or their configuration is different. My guess is that Ubuntu is configured to handle CPU throttling better than Slackware. Either a kernel upgrade or configuration change may help that.

    FWIW, on my 8-core (dual CPU) RH6 system, my cores are running (under moderate load) between 18 and 36 C. Under load they may reach 45C. RAM temperature is a bigger issue for me.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
