My newly bought Asus ZenBook S UX391UA runs unusually hot with Ubuntu 18.10. Even in the BIOS the temperature is around 70° after a cold boot, as shown here. After some minutes it normally raises up to 74°-75°. I have a normal room temperature around 21°-23°. The notebook itself is clean.
At some point the preinstalled
thermald daemon even forcefully shuts down Ubuntu, preventing it from overheating. Before the shutdown, usually the following appears in the logs:
Package temperature above threshold, cpu clock throttled
The only solution I've found is to remove the
thermald package. Didn't observe any undesirable side effects so far.
Does somebody observe the same? Especially the high temperatures in the BIOS.
