I've been working hard at getting my Manjaro install to behave well. I've installed and configured Sensors to get proper data, installed corectrl and worked with it. All report reasonable answers. But the fans are not slowing and in general Linux seems to put out a lot of heat which counters what conrectrl and others are reporting. Such as low GFX card wattage use and low or no fan-speed when idle. The issue seems to be CPU. When idle, windows will actually spin the fan to an almost stop and then restart it and then bring it back down to an average of about 100rpm or less. Tools under win report the proper parking of the idle cores into sleep.
Corectrl reports that the core clock is being properly down clocked but it also does not show individual cores only "all cores". Same thing with sensors. It does not list individual core temps or clocks or voltage only "all" as one. Mind you it is "correct" in that none of the values are unexpected. But if Corectrl output is correct it does not downclock or park processors for any length of time as it keeps ramping it back up. From the heat-output and the fans never going below 50% and the fact that just idling linux raises the room temperature significantly it would appear that Linux is in fact not downclocking, nor undervolting, nor parking cores.
It seems to be trying but instead it just keep waking everything back up, even with the monitor tools off (aka,to prevent the Observer Effect by turning off the tools but observing fan speed and room temp). I wonder if this is an artifact of the 5.7.0 kernel or is it something KDE is doing that is making the system think it needs to throttle up.
Just want to spend more time under Manjaro and have been using it as my primary for almost half a year now and would rather not go back to windows. I even game under linux with great success. But it's summer and having a space heater that can raise the room temp by 3-6F even when idle isn't comfortable.
Wasting power really isn't a concern for me, heat is.
I am probably overlooking something. If there is any output I can give that would help I can copy paste the terminal here. The various tools are indeed trying to slow down the CPU but something is making them run right back up in less than a ms from when they are ramped down.
Htop shows no excessive CPU load. Nor does Ksysguard so they agree that just sitting at 1% or less utilization while corectrl shows a very jagged CPU clock output.
I've searched the forums and reddit and installed or made sure the tools were installed or the modules if need be. I am stumped at this point.
