    Essentially the issue is described in the title. Tried clean Installs of both windows and Ubuntu and checked CPU temp on both and the CPU never goes below around 58 celsius, which I assume is not normal? The fan goes on and off and on and off with the computer not doing anything at all and CPU usage at 2%

    At the balanced power plan in Windows it might be around there if your room is relatively warm. Also check if the heatsink is sitting correctly on the processor and that the termal paste (or pad) is not bad.
    My self to actually stop the fan going on and off at night am putting the Windows powerplan on a modified powersave mode which stops it, though at summer it does turns back on for a moment now and then when it does things like email even on powersave.
    I am looking to add a passive heatsink to it to make it not even needing a fan though must be big enough to dissipate the heat by it self.
