I always wait for Stable update notices here on Manjaro org. I have a handful of AUR programs (primarily Chrome) but for some reason Octopus notified me of a full update available. For some reason today was a full AUR update, not a common Stable Pacman update.
Anyway ... I rebooted into the new 5.7.12 kernel. I crunch both BOINC and F@H with 100% processors at a reduced ECO power level. Without a single UEFI BIOS change, suddenly my VCore temps are a full 10° and often 15° lower!
Surely it could be a coincidence, but it certainly is holding true on my Conky display for the past three hours since the reboot.
Does anyone have knowledge of the updates that might explain this? NOT COMPLAINING
