Hey when you guy upgraded to the 81 series for the Nvidia drivers did you notice any of your temps on your cards go down a lot? Last week I updated to the newest Linux Nvidia drivers (81.74) and my card went from 63-64c for Idle to 54-57c for Idle and 72-76c under heavy load to 62-64c for heavy loads. Did you guys see any drops?

I am getting the same temps as you are running the 81.95's on a BFG 6800gt. I bet they fixed some issues with the temperature display or the temperaure probe's accuracy.

Mine dropped three degrees celsius. Nice job nVidia...

That's quite an achievement, considering my house has been constantly heating up in the build up to Christmas.

I noticed that it now WORKS EXACTLY AS I WANTED IT TO!!! It's a big pic, but yeah, I'm really happy with these new drivers that run in dualview properly. :bows:

No temp differences (yet) though.

BTW, what card are you guys using? I notice if I squint really hard agent's threshold is 135c, I have a 6800GT and it' threshold is only 120c.

btw, btw agent your background is sweeeet!
