My x250's CPU temperature approaches 90+ degrees when I try to watch youtube videos on Chrome/Firefox. I can hear the whiny fan speed up. I usually have the power setting at Maximum Performance in Power Manager.
Is this the nature of core i ulv cpus?

i have the same problem and its definately not a hardware fault.
flash for some reason uses 100% cpu on the x250, i'm guessing it's down to really bad driver support, as it's still a very new cpu?
i stream content from twitch.tv for example through vlc player and only get 20% cpu usage then.
oh, also, try internet explorer for example! of all browsers - it also only uses around 20% cpu and the machine runs cool.

so only us two have this problem?
can someone else running the i7-5600u test this please?
the problem also persists in ubuntu and windows 7 as well, btw.
is it a general chrome issue (drivers)? as i mentioned, ie11 works flawlessly.
