I use 64bit bullseye on rpi400, silent and cool, but recently after the newest kernel update It got hot. from 35°C when idle to 45-48°C . Nothing jumps in Htop, no recent apps installed. Has anybody a clue why? I love that setup, stopped using my laptop at home, for browsing and some productivity.
Below 50C is nothing to worry about. I don't have any idea what has caused to increase temperature though. I moved from Manjaro to RPIOS last week (again), and didn't notice any significant different between temperature as I expected. I used Manjaro KDE Plasma before, so I expected to see a decrement of few degrees of Celsius.
However, I don't think Raspberry Pi circuit has a very accurate thermometer, I believe it gives an average temperature, so, if it is below 50 degrees, there's no need to worry.
