In fedora 21 gnome 3 makes my video card fan runs constantly and loud, when I use the same box with Win 7 or 8 that doesnt happen. Is there a fix for this bug

Only GNOME 3, that would be strange. Have you tried another Desktop ? What is your video card ?

yes it did the same thing with opensuse (latest version) using gnome 3. Ive read about others having the same issue. In my laptop it wont happen but in my desktop running a NVIDIA GeForce GT 545 the vid card runs hard like I'm playing a resource intensive game. I have not tried Fedora 21 running KDE, just gnome
