after 30 min in idle state, this is my sensors:

Code:

[root@myhost pasquale]# sensors

temp2:        +0.0C  (crit = +100.0C)

Core 2:      +52.0C  (high = +95.0C, crit = +105.0C)

while using only facebook chat (system load<5%):
Code:

[pasquale@myhost ~]$ sensors
acpitz-virtual-0
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +26.8C  (crit = +100.0C)

Core 2:      +72.0C  (high = +95.0C, crit = +105.0C)

On windows, this temperature is reached while using flashpalyer and some other application.


is there someone can help me?
thanks!

Take it apart and clean the fans and apply new thermal paste.

Problem solved!

The Power managment of "radeon" driver works fine for my Radeon 5470?
Do you know how can i get real frequency of GPU?
On windows, in idle state, i have this temperatures:
CPU:43
GPU:57

also, someone know how can i get PCH temperature? This is so high on windows...

Thanks!

The radeon driver has some basic power management functionality. Take a look at this information: http://wiki.x.org/wiki/radeonBuildHo...wer-management

The proprietary driver has much more finely developed power management functionality, if you need it.
