Latest Kernel upgrade sorted out heating problem

The first time i am not complaining but reporting a positive development. My dell Processor has been overheating with resulting noisy fan running nonstop right from booting up for the last about 2-3month . I initially thought It was the large number of apps i was running.
An "apug" update 2 days ago, which i noticed also drew in a kernel update has resulted in a much quieter and cooler processor by about 15 deg.
I am reporting this in-case there is some one else also encountering high temperatures , a kernel upgrade may solve it.
