Since I migrated from Fedora 17 to Fedora 18 by doing a fresh install (only kept /home) I've been having overheating problems randomly. For absolutely no apparent reason everything heats up and reaches temps like:
> sensors acpitz-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1: +73.0°C (crit = +103.0°C) coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Physical id 0: +73.0°C (high = +86.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) Core 0: +66.0°C (high = +86.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) Core 1: +65.0°C (high = +86.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) asus-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter temp1: +73.0°C nouveau-pci-0100 Adapter: PCI adapter temp1: +60.0°C (high = +95.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)
at the same time htop shows average cpu usage to be 1% (not sure how to check gpu usage) so I see no reason for the temps to be this high.
Note: I did not have this problem with F17 ( everything was mostly under 50°C )
What's causing this and how can I fix it?
