Ever since using i3, my pc restarts due to cpu overheating quite regularly (sometimes multiple times a day). This will happen when I am doing running some semi intensive application, for example streaming a video on youtube or running a web server locally. The strange thing is this never happened whilst using ubuntu (stock standard) - and I certainly ran the laptop harder on ubuntu. Just wondering if this has come up before or if anyone has a similar problem?
