When I activate a monitor on the HDMI output (wired to the NVIDIA Optimus chip) of my notebook through the commands below the notebook starts to get very hot, mainly if I am running a video (streaming web, for example) on this monitor. So far so good, but the high temperature is making my Linux crash.
How can I solve this problem of high temperature?
NOTE: When I use NVIDIA graphics acceleration chip (primusrun) I haven't temperature problems.

That is the hardest question I've ever faced with Linux. So I offer "100" of my small reputation for an effective solution.
TIP: Currently I use Manjaro, but I already used Linux Mint and with that I was able to make HDMI work without using "intel-virtual-output" command since it was enough to connect the HDMI cable.
With Linux Mint I had no temperature problems. I'm pretty sure Linux Mint did not use the official NVidia drivers ("Nouveau"?).
