You are absolutely right.
I installed Slackware 14.0 on my pc and I noticed the spike in temperature right below my left palm.
After a lot of search I found @raphaeldavidf 's solution. Thanks mate.
Earlier #gkrellmm gave me an output of 71 C (~ 160 F) at an ambient temp of just 35 C (~95 F)
Now after these steps above, I am getting a much better 49 C (~ 120 F)
Never had this issue in the MS OS that came with the machine.
Just to dissect the issue more, is this particularly dependent on hardware ?
Coz I remember "Not passing any arguements" to the liloconfig when I installed Slack.
Also, this fix does solve the issue to an extent. I booted into MS and the system was more cooler than it is now.
I'll run a utility on MS soon to compare the temp differences.
Thanks again @raphaeldavidf.
