Overheating Issue

I just started using #! Waldorf and I love it, there is just one problem...It overheats within 20mins of booting up just running Iceweasel and the terminal. I have searched now for 6 hours through the forums here and elsewhere and found some stuff (like lm-sensors/cpu frequency scaling etc..) but none worked. So I broke down and decided to ask the community myself.

My Specs:
Dell XPS M1530 (2008ish)
OS: Crunchbang Linux 11 "Waldorf" 32-bit (for modern pc)
CPU: Dual-Core Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 / 2.2 GHz
Motherboard: Dell 0D501F
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce 128MB 8400M
RAM: 4 GB (2x Nanya DDR SDRAM 667)
HDD: Seagate ST9320320AS 320GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0GB/s

$ sensors

acpitz-virtual-0
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +51.0°C  (crit = +126.0°C)

coretemp-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0:       +51.0°C  (high = +90.0°C, crit = +90.0°C)
Core 1:       +50.0°C  (high = +90.0°C, crit = +90.0°C)

nouveau-pci-0100
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:        +76.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +110.0°C)

(With ice under it)

It averages 70 degrees Celsius for the first three and 90 degrees for the PCI Adapter otherwise.

Note: It overheat quite a bit with Windows Vista and a little with Linux Mint 14; never this much though.

Re: Overheating Issue

Thanks for the welcome VDP76  smile  I am not new to #! but surely new to the community. Earlier I had it in my testing machine, but now in my main machine after the january waldrof release. I am very happy with the waldrof stability and will surely put my linux story in introductions thread  smile

Re: Overheating Issue

Yes I had this problem Athanasios1453 sad  . With nouveau driver my gpu temperature stays between 90 to 100 C devil ( which automatically starts the fan) but incase of proprietary nvidia driver it stays between 65 to 75 C glasses ( depends upon your room temperature and applications you are using). If the temp still stays hot , there might be some dust which could be preventing the air flow , so make sure your laptop is clean and if possible, always try to keep your laptop above the surface ( like using cooling pad  ) . No matter what linux distribution you use , this overheating issue with the gpu is same. So its not crunchbang fault.  Reply if you stuck somewhere. smile
