the laptop is a hp 4310s with :
GPU : Radeon HD 4300 Series card (this goes up to 72-73 C)
CPU : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T6670 @ 2.20GHz
Running ubuntu 12.04 32 bit with gnome shell
the problem is that the gpu goes 72-73 C on startup which i think i too high.
i have tried the proprietary drivers but the problem is that when i install it the cpu usage and temp goes up.
Today i found out that my processor is 64 bit, the question is if i install the 64 bit will the temperature go down?
any other fix for this temperature problem?
i love ubuntu and i don't want to change the os.
P.S not sure which prefix to choose...
