I'm a bit concerned about this. I think that the temperature reported by
acpi -t is way to high for the load, which is just some browser tabs, nothing else. I'm with Manjaro 20.0.2 and 5.6.15 kernel.
I'm regularly checking
acpi -t and it usually outputs values between 60-70, sometimes higher. There are also outliers of 50-55, but I've never seen it below that. The temperature at home shouldn't be greater than 22. I don't really think 60C is reasonable under for such a load load and a fresh room temperature. I've also noticed that the temperature may vary in +/- 10C just within a second, so I'm not even sure about how reliable these numbers are. But still too high always.
I've tried to install
sensors-lm but it just doesn't detect the sensors. In any case, this is the output of

tlp is up and running and the fans do work, I can hear them occasionally.
I also have to say that, when touching it, the feeling I have is that it's (quite much) cooler than another Lenovo I have that reports a constants temperature of 50-53 for each of its 6 cores. But these numbers are pissing me off, to be honest.
