I have a dual booting PC (Mint 18.3 with Windows 10). My graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce GT710.
While using Linux, I noticed that the GPU Temperature reached 57-60°C with simple Internet browsing (it used to be 45-50 even while multitasking), the fan roared and the picture froze momentarily (with sound working normally) every few minutes while watching videos online.
All the above stopped when I uninstalled the GPU Temperature Applet and I have had no issues ever since the un-installation. I now use the Psensor and everything is ok.
Has anyone else had similar issues with the certain applet?
