I've recently installed (dualboot) Linux Mint 18 on my Sony Vaio svt15115cxs
and noticed that it's running louder than on windows, so I checked the temps, and found, that while under load (eg. watching a 1080p/720p youtube vid in firefox on both systems) the CPU runs about 10 °C hotter. (measured with Psensor and
watch -d -n 1 sensors on linux, and hwinfo64 on windows).
So I've installed TLP and thermald but not much has changed. I've also enabled intel-microcode in the driver manager and installed the latest intel graphics dirver.
What can I do to optimize temps on linux without severely hindering the performance? I really like linux so far, but if it means higher temps then I'll have to stick with windows.
edit: Kernel:4.4.0-45 generic
edit2: So I just installed manjaro (xfce) and it stays around 72°, which is better than the mint's 77, but it's still way worse than the 52° on win.
