Hi, sometimes i have problem with my fan speed. It goes to maximum but cpu usage is low (i have cpu monitor so i know that nothing is consuming cpu so hard ). It takes a couple of minutes and everything goes back normal again. Does anyone had same problem before, or maybe know what can be source of this problem. I have dual boot with win and on win it never happens, so i know that my hardware is working well.

This is another question where specific details of your hardware will help people trying to help you.

Look at the temperature. Sometimes HDD and GPU can heat laptops up.
