Lenovo B560 Linux - Ubuntu Drivers Update. CPU overheat

I just Install Ubuntu 16.04 On my B560 after a total crash upgrading to W10. Fantastic OS, superfast load and everything working smooth but a single small issue. It seems the CPU gets overheated. Not sure if cause the 4.4 version of the new Kernel or any other reason as power management in the mother board. I cant find Direct dowloads to Linux drivers. Have tried some searchs on the knowledge base but didnt found anything really helpfull.


Any idea?, any links around? any information about where to find them.

I know by the Ubuntu site that they partner with Lenovo and all Lenovo's shipping in India comes with Ubuntu Preinstalled instead of Windows ( a much better option i will say ).


Any helps , post found, links etc will be much appreciated.

Re: Lenovo B560 Linux - Ubuntu Drivers Update. CPU overheat

Ubuntu is a great OS, once I installed it (2011) never went back to win,everything is better(except the fan work)

My B560 lives with Ubuntu since Ubuntu 11.04, now it's on 16.04 kernel 4.11. The fan was and always be like that.

Now Iam considering to get a new fan, a heatsink replacement and a i5-540 cpu.

Other than that I enjoy a fully working 6 years old laptop.
