I have this system:

Two weeks ago or so, temp started going abnormally high even when doing the simplest thing (web browsing). I've got myself diagnosed that the video chipset was working bad and it needed "reflow". I had the chance to try a new motherboard but even after trying it out, the behavior is the same.
I've collected some stats and the weird thing is that temp does never go below 60°C (can't show the graph now 'cuz I need more reputation). You can see it here.
I can see the same from the
acpitz-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1: +70.0°C coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Package id 0: +68.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) Core 0: +68.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) Core 1: +65.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
What worries me now is that even with a new motherboard I'm "getting" this high temp and the fans go crazy ...
I'm no expert but could this be due to a driver problem may be? My next guess is reinstalling ubuntu, but I want to get some info before going that way.
I've left the PC running on the BIOS and, from time to time, the fans do work, but I really do not know if that's a reasonable test.
Any hint is highly appreciated ...
