When I’m playing something my temperature will randomly hit 100 C at which point it will heavily throttle and jump back to 70 C.
My fans have been cleaned just 2 days back and thermal paste has been re-applied so I don’t think that is the issue.
I found this thread where the person’s solution was the lower the maximum allowed frequency. I’ll try that and update this thread later.
One of the comments there mentioned that this is due to linux not having ‘Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework.’. Is there any way to get that running on linux?
Edit: I also found an application called ‘thermald’ which is stated to do the same thing. Can anyone here tell me if this works on fedora? and how do I install it since I can only see a debian page for it
