Never a problem until I go messing with things.
Seriously Arch never breaks on me until I break it.

Except for some weird thing with the display that makes white on webpages and applications very off white and the blacks look almost charcoal on some things.
Have found out I need the display calibrated but since I use dark themes on anythign I can anyway I don't worry about it much.

Also the ram usage is a little high at the time I ran neofetch because I have Firefox and a few other things open right now.
Idle on boot it is around 550mb and I never have trouble with running out of ram unless I purposely open a zillion Firefox tabs and a bunch of applications(I did this a few times to see how far I could push it LoL).
It is the cpu that ends up being hammered on before I even come close to running out of ram.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Lenovo ThinkPad E330 - I've got Arch Linux running on it for years. It works out of the box as far as I can remember. It's old hardware so no reason not to.

Anyway, I'm writing this post because I've just upgraded my CPU from i3-3120M to i7-3632QM and I decided to share some details in case someone else also is interested in similar upgrade. This i7 was never officially supported in this model. I also couldn't find any post across the web that would confirm that Lenovo E330 indeed works with i7-3632QM (there were only some posts that it should). So... new CPU works out of the box! smile

BIOS detected it instantly, Arch Linux too (both updated to latest versions). I did not reinstall Operating System prior or after CPU change - I did not see any reason to do so.

Temperatures when idle are 30 / 40 degree Celsius.
Average temperatures during normal usage (music, few pages open in web browser, mail client, etc): 48 - 52 degree Celsius
Stress test (approx ten to fifteen minutes): around 70 degrees, average more than 70, highest noticed temperature was 76 degrees. Test scenario: create new world in video game called Minecraft and roam around.
Obviously I've changed the thermal compound (used Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut). I'm using stock fan.
Temperatures of course will differ from laptop to laptop due to environment etc. It's just my use case.

FYI, I've turned Hyper Threading off due to security concerns.
