Well, as stated in the topic, this is my problem.
I have archlinux in my HP Pavilion dv7 with AMD Phenom II (x3 cores) N850 2.2GHz processor and it gets extremely hot when i'm in arch. I have tried linuxmint just to feel how hot it is and it less hot than in arch; in fact, in arch is like it has been in an oven even when my cpu's are in 3% each.
I got my cpu freq log in case it helps:
analyzing CPU 0: driver: powernow-k8 CPUs which run at the same hardware frequency: 0 CPUs which need to have their frequency coordinated by software: 0 maximum transition latency: 8.0 us. hardware limits: 800 MHz - 2.20 GHz available frequency steps: 2.20 GHz, 1.90 GHz, 1.60 GHz, 1.30 GHz, 800 MHz available cpufreq governors: ondemand, performance current policy: frequency should be within 800 MHz and 2.20 GHz. The governor "ondemand" may decide which speed to use within this range. current CPU frequency is 800 MHz. boost state support: Supported: no Active: no
I don't really know why it is getting that hot, not even when playing any game it gets like it is getting with arch. So, if anybody can help me with this, i would really appreciate it.

Can I have some more info? What graphics card do you have and which drivers are you using?

I have an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Series (2Gb) graphic card with xf86-video-ati open source driver. I tried to install catalyst but i couldn't, it always asks me to remove libgl but when i remove it i get an error saying the libgl 9.0.something is necessary for that driver. As far as i know, i can remove libgl without any problem because of the conflict with catalyst and that thing just pisses me off.
