Temperature sensors on Acer Aspire 4736z
I recently bought an Acer Aspire 4736z and installed a Ubuntu 9.04 on it. I use the apps such as hddtemp and the gnome sensor applets to recognize real-time temperature and of course the ACPI packages are also included.
Temperature on the Linux system is usually around 45-50. However, when I switch immediately to the Windows XP system that uses the Speedfan application, a readout of 50-60 is observed.
To me...it raises an alarm since there is a difference in temperature between the two system. Is there a way to get a consistent readout? This makes me a bit reluctant to use the Linux system since the temperature is higher.
