optirun firefox firefox is working and there are some forum pages and a game ( lost bubble in facebook) are open. And the laptop is about 70-85 Celsius. Is this normal? What should I do to get the temperature down?

My temp stays around 46-54 C. Right now it is 50 C with room temp at 25.5 C.
Of course, my laptop is setting atop a usb fan powered base at all times...

-Did you changed any configuration?
- Do you use 'optirun <appliacation name>' for run the applications like firefox?

I think, your PC has i5 CPU, YFDogan's i7.

@YFDogan

Currently running Cinnamon x64 on my Asus Core i7 laptop.

I have edited /etc/conf.d/cpufreq to look like this:

Code: [Select]
#configuration for cpufreq control

# valid governors:
#  ondemand, performance, powersave,
#  conservative, userspace
governor="ondemand"

# limit frequency range (optional)
# valid suffixes: Hz, kHz (default), MHz, GHz, THz
min_freq="800MHz"
max_freq="2GHz"

# use freq to set up the exact cpu frequency using it with userspace governor
#freq=

lsmod shows 'acpi_cpufreq' is loaded which is required if using
cpufrequtils (already was installed in Cinnamon). That's it.

This is the default setting. Is it OK with bumblebee? Or need changes?

#governor="ondemand"

# limit frequency range (optional)
# valid suffixes: Hz, kHz (default), MHz, GHz, THz
#min_freq="2.25GHz"
#max_freq="3GHz"

# use freq to set up the exact cpu frequency using it with userspace governor
#freq=
