I was hitting 98C, so took my 1710 apart to AS5 my 7950GTX over the weekend.
The temps have dropped a little, but I notice now that no matter which driver I install, I am not getting the in game performance I was getting before, although I am gettting the 3D mark scores. Everything seems "jerky". i.e. its almost as if there is a lot of hard disk catching up if that explains it (I have plenty space free).
COD4 ran a dream before and this is now pretty useless...
