New kernel version 4.8.10 (November 23, 2016)

Steps everyone can take are to ensure Intel microcode is up to date. See the answer here: (Ubuntu 16.04 Skylake overheating)

Instead of kernel 4.2, 4.3 or 4.4.2 in the other answers here you should upgrade to kernel 4.8.10 which has good reviews / improvments:

cd /tmp
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.8.10/linux-headers-4.8.10-040810_4.8.10-040810.201611210531_all.deb
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.8.10/linux-headers-4.8.10-040810-generic_4.8.10-040810.201611210531_amd64.deb
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.8.10/linux-image-4.8.10-040810-generic_4.8.10-040810.201611210531_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
sudo reboot

After installing the new kernel you can try to roll out grub command line changes for nomodeset, i915.preliminary_hw_support=1, etc. you fudged to make earlier kernels and drivers work.

Please note kernel version 4.9 LTS will be out soon. We all hope Intel fixes the pstate / cstate / thermald issues plaguing many of us in the LTS kernel release.
