ok, as most know, i think vista is evil. although, i just recently set up my rig to dual boot vista and xp. i just wanted a change i guess. anyway, vista is actually doing very well for me now, and i'm actually a little bit impressed with the performance now. i downloaded the latest gpu driver from dell and was getting that nkkdlm or whatever error, so i updated to the latest driver from the nvidia site, it showed to be a beta, but there were no other options available. i've got everest ultimate running, and i noticed that my fans were louder than i had remembered. well, when running on vista, my gpu (8700 sli, no overclock) temp is sitting at 69-70C!! on xp, it sits around 60-63. is this just because of the aero theme? the temp gets all the way up to like 72-73C without any load at all. even when the screen turns off, i come back and can hear the fans just going to town. any help?
