As i consider u a bit of a 'heat related 8790 stuff' expert (what with living in nebraska an all!) i thought id ask a quickie question;
Am i right in saying with mobmeter the 8790 temps can often go above 50C, as in gsferrari's immensely useful and interesting 'interesting and useful'
graph. Is this the normal operating conditions
Now iv just read the specs of the dvd drive on my soon to be d870p, and seen that the max operating temp is 50C! (Center Of Top Cover). Its a bit worrying that not many d870p's come with this particular dvd drive.
So mobmeter measures cpu temp?, and how close is the sensor to the dvd drive?
i realise u dont have your red-hot 8790 any more, so does any one think this is a problem. i have images of flaming cd's ejecting from the drive.
